JNJG Announce State of Origin Players for 2019

Jack Newton Junior Golf have selected the team for the 2019 State of Origin Series as it looks to claim back the series after a draw last year with the Junior Golf Foundation of Queensland.

JNJG had won nine years in a row prior to drawing 15-15 earlier this year at Pelican Waters Golf Resort. The tournament returns to Newcastle this year and will be played at Newcastle Golf club from Thursday 10th to Friday 11th January, 2018. NSW will be looking to put both hands on that trophy at the end of the two day event.

The final team is made up of one boy and one girl in each age division (as of the first day of competition). These players have been picked based on their scores in all JNJG Tour Events over the last 12 months. The boy and girl with the lowest average in each of the age division has been selected as the JNJG representative. 

Congratulations to all of our NSW team members on their selection.  We know you will do your best when representing us all.
