Guan Signs off in Style as Playoff Decides Girls

(3:00pm - Monday 13th June 2022)

Jeffrey Guan (The Australian) has signed off his impressive junior career in style, coming from behind with a final round 63 to claim the Boys Division of the Macarthur Junior Masters. Extra holes were needed in the Girls Division, with Grace Lee (Concord) defeating Ann Jang (Toukley) on the first playoff hole. 

After an uncharacteristic two over par 73 on Sunday, Australia's highest ranked Junior Golfer started the final round three shots behind overnight leader Ed Proctor (Royal Sydney). The 17 year old superstar, who turns 18 next month, quickly got to work, starting with four straight birdies to move to the top of the leaderboard. A bogey on the seventh briefly slowed the momentum, before Guan turned it on once more with another four birdies in a seven hole stretch from the eigth.

Guan sat all alone on top of the leaderboard at five under par for the tourament, but the chasing pack hadn't given up yet.

Overnight leader Proctor hung around on day two but couldn't make the birdies required to keep pace before finishing fifth. Luke Furlong (St Michaels) was right in the mix after a fast start, before two lost balls led to a quadruple bogey on the 8th which ended his chances as he made the turn. The biggest challenger appeared to be Shashank Koirala (The Lakes) who had an unbelievable round going.

Five birdies and a hole-in-one through the first 13 holes saw the 16 year old within one shot of Guan, but an untimely four putt on the 17th led to a triple bogey and ended his chances. That left Harry Atkinson (Pymble) as the closest challenger to Guan, reeling off five birdies to sign for a 67 and a solo-second finish, two shots behind Guan.

Whilst Guan was lighting up the Boys Divison, the Girls Division on the other side of the course was coming down to the wire. As many as four players held the lead at different stages on Monday, with Rachel Lee (Avondale), Michelle Bang (Concord), Ann Jang (Toukley) and Grace Lee (Concord) all right in contention.

The overnight leader from Avondale couldn't replicate the six birdies she made on the opening day, with Lee finishing in fourth after a second round 74. However Bang, Jang and Lee were on fire Monday, rolling in eight birdies between them over the front nine to separate themselves from the chasing pack. The trio traded more birdies on the back nine, with Grace Lee (Concord) standing on the final tee with a one shot lead. After playing away from the water and finding the green-side bunker, Lee needed to get up-and-down to secure the title, however got a little cute with her bunker shot and left it in the trap!

Now needing to get up and down to force a playoff, the 17 year old did just that, forcing extra holes with Jang. It was nearly a three-way playoff, with Bang dropping back to level par after a bogey of her own on the last.

Lee re-grouped, with her tee shot on the first plyoff hole (the par three 14th) almost slam-dunking for an ace! After Jang came up short and wasn't able to get up and down, two putts was enough to secure Lee her maiden JNJG Masters Title.

Proctor was solid throughout in his opening round at Camden, dropping just the one shot whilst picking up two birdies to finish with a one under par 70. Lee was a bit more up and down in her round, reeling off six birdies in the final 11 holes to finish the day at even par.
