Lamb and Kim Cruise to Champions Trophy

(1:30pm - Friday 6th December)

Corey Lamb (The Vintage) and Yerin Kim (Strathfield) have cruised to victory at the 2019 Bonville Champions Trophy. Lamb fired four consecutive under par rounds (for the first time in JNJG Champions Trophy History) to win by six shots, whilst Kim birdied the final hole to also finish the tournament under par, winning by nine shots.

After Lamb started the final round with a two shot lead, the first turning point happened with the very first shot of the day. Lamb leaked a four iron into the water down the right hand side, briefly opening the door for the chasing pack. The 18 year old responded however, snaking a long 30 foot downhill putt straight into the hole for a miracle par to maintain the lead. In fact, try as they might, the challengers never got closer than two all day.

Jacob Dundas (Toronto) finished off an impressive week with an eagle on the 18th in front of a packed clubhouse to record a two under par total, one shot clear of Josh Robards (Newcastle). Josh Fuller (The Vintage) finished two shots further back in fourth position, capping off an incredible week for the Newcastle / Hunter brigade with a 1-2-3-4 finish.

In the Girls Division, Kim capped off a stellar year, claiming the first and last JNJG Majors of the year. After winning the A.C.T Week of Golf back in January, Kim started the final major with a huge eight shot final round lead. But just like Lamb, Kim also found the water off the first tee. A double bogey forced the 17 year old to quickly re-focus, doing just that with birdies on the third and fourth. Another four back nine birdies, including that final one on 18, stamped a dominant mark on the event to record the biggest ever winning margin.

June Song (Avondale) recovered from a slow start to finish with rounds of 70-72 and seal second place, with The Australian pair Brielle Mapanao and Charlotte Perkins finishing in third and fourth place. Surprise packet and local girl Ella Scaysbrook (Port Macquarie) was one of the finds of the week, finishing in a share of fifth with Annika Boyd (Toukley).

The final round caps off another fantastic JNJG Tour Season, with the 2020 calendar starting on January 1st with the A.C.T Week of Golf.

Lamb and Kim Take Control at Bonville

(7:00pm - Thursday 5th December 2019)

Corey Lamb (The Vintage) and Yerin Kim (Strathfield) will sleep on the overnight lead after taking control of the Bonville Champions Trophy on Thursday afternoon. After two long days which saw the players squeeze in 54 Holes, Lamb and Kim stood tallest to sit atop the leaderboard with 18 holes to play.

After starting with a 69 on Wednesday morning, Lamb backed that up with rounds of 70 and 71 to sit at six under par, two shots clear of the closest challenger. That challenger is Jacob Dundas (Toronto), who completed matching rounds of 70 on Thursday to slowly move into second place. Joining Lamb and Dundas in the final group will be the round one leader Josh Fuller (The Vintage), two shots further back at two under par.

Whilst the leading three boys will all have dreams tonight of taking the title, the Girls Division may already be over after a sensational moving day by Yerin Kim. The 17 Year Old, playing her final JNJG Tournament before turning 18 in January, recovered from a slow start on Wednesday morning with rounds of 70 and 69 to take control. June Song (Avondale) moved into second place with the only other under par round of the week by the Girls, her two under par 70 getting her within eight shots with one round to play. Brielle Mapanao sits alone in third place, three shots further back.

The boys cut fell at +13, with the girls cut dropping to +21 in the difficult smokey conditions.

Scaysbrook Steals the Show at Bonville

(5:30pm - Wednesday 4th December 2019)

13 Year Old Ella Scaysbrook (Port Macquarie) entered the Bonville Champions Trophy as one of the youngest players to ever compete at the event. In the 2019 field of 48 of the best junior golfers from around the state, she was one of the highest handicappers and more than likely here for the experience. No one told Ella.

Scaysbrook defied the odds to finish the opening day on top of the leaderboard, firing a three over par 75 in the morning before making a birdie on her final hole of the day to end the day at four over par through the opening 26 holes. Joining Scaysbrook late on day one in a share of the lead was NSW State Team member Yerin Kim (Strathfield), going bogey free in the afternoon to climb up the leaderboard. It is a jam-packed Girls Leaderboard, with the top nine players separated by just four shots heading into the second day.

Whilst the Girls Leaderboard sees a future star leading after day one, the Boys Leaderboard has a familiar face at the top, 18 Year Old Corey Lamb (The Vintage) playing in his final ever JNJG event. Corey Lamb claimed the NSW Junior Championships earlier in the year and is on the way to signing off with a win in the Champions Trophy, sitting at four under after the opening day.

Lamb eagled the 18th hole to finish his morning round at three under before playing the opening eight holes of the second round in one under par to take the lead from the impressive Jacob Dundas (Toronto). Dundas carded a 72 in the morning, before reeling off four birdies in a seven hole stretch to move into second place. Round one leader Josh Fuller (The Vintage) sits in third place at two under par, his morning round of 68 the best of the day.
