Farrar, Kim Win a Final Round Shoot-Out

(2:00pm - Sunday 15th May 2022)

On a day where more than 10 players broke par in perfect scoring conditions at Emerald Downs, Toby Farrar (The Australian) and Godiva Kim (Coolangatta Tweed Heads) have claimed the 2022 North Coast Junior Masters in an exciting final round shoot-out!

In the boys division, as many as five players shared the lead late on Sunday, with Harry Atkinson (Pymble), Coopar Nianios (Wollongong), Shashank Koirala (The Lakes) and Mali Loomes (Safety Beach) all a chance to take the title. In the end, they all fell short, with youngster Toby Farrar (The Australian) holding firm to claim his first overall JNJG title with a superb five under par 65.

After starting two shots behind, Farrar started hot, picking up birdies on the third, fifth and sixth holes to move right into contention. A bogey on the 9th briefly slowed the 14 year old down, but he bounced back with birdies on 10 and 11. A clutch birdie on 16 got the Western Sydney boy to six under, a score that was quite popular with only a handful of holes to go, with a playoff looming.

In the end, six under was enough, as Farrar held on to win by one shot from Atkinson and Nianios, with overnight leader Koirala one shot further back at minus four.

The Girls Division was a little more clear cut, with Queenslander Godiva Kim running away with the title. Kim fired a final round 67, picking up five birdies, as she cruised to a three shot victory. Rachel Lee (Avondale) flew up the leaderboard with a final round 65 to finish second at level par, one shot clear of Ann Jang (Toukley) and overnight leader Michelle Bang (Concord).

North Coast Junior Masters Set for Exciting Finish

(6:00pm - Saturday 14th May 2022)

Shashank Koirala (The Lakes) will take a one shot lead into the final round of the North Coast Junior Masters Boys Division after a three under par 67 at Emerald Downs Golf Course. Michelle Bang (Concord) and Queensland Visitor Godiva Kim (Coolangatta Tweed Heads) share the lead in the girls, firing matching even par 70s.

After starting on the 4th hole in the opening round shot-gun, Koirala quickly went about moving up the leaderboard. Birdies on the 5th and 8th got the 16 year into a share of the lead, before a bogey on the par three 9th briefly halted the momentum. Two more birdies on the 11th and 12th got the Sydney-sider to three under par, before parring home to sign for a 67.

As many as 10 players were in red figures at one stage on the opening day, with Coopar Nianios (Wollongong) finishing the day in second position after signing for a 68. The big hitting Nianios also made four birdies on the opening day, sharing the lead until an untimely bogey on his final hole of the day. Four other players finished the day in red figures, with The Australian pair Toby Farrar and Josh Todd joined by Bowen Small (Maitland) and surprise packet Mali Loomes (Safety Beach).

The Girls Division leaders couldn't be split on the opening day, with recent Murray River Junior Masters Champion Bang joined by Queensland young-gun Kim late in the opening round. Bang picked up two birdies alongside two bogies, whilst Kim, who turned 14 just last week, rolled in three birdies alongside three bogies on Saturday afternoon. The duo opened up a three shot lead with 18 holes to play, however the chasing pack looms large!

Ann Jang (Toukley), Grace Lee (Concord) and Michelle Moon (NSW) share third at three over par, whilst Junior State Team Representatives Ella Scaysbrook (NSW), Rachel Lee (NSW) and Matilda Sullings (A.C.T) are part of the group of nine girls within just five shots of the lead.

Play begins early on Sunday morning with an 8am shot-gun start.

Emerald Downs Set to Host North Coast Junior Masters

(9:00am - Tuesday 10th May 2022)

The 2022 North Coast Junior Masters gets underway on Saturday, with Emerald Downs Golf Course in Port Macquarie hosting a JNJG Tour Event for the first time ever.

After months of heavy rain up and down the NSW Coast, regular tournament host Kew Country Club is the latest club to be impacted by the floods, with many parts of the course still inaccessible to course machinery due to the constant rain. With more rain predicted to hit the Lower North Coast in the coming days (as much as 50mm in the forecast), the difficult decision was made to move the event up the road to Emerald Downs.

More than 100 golfers from all over NSW, the A.C.T and Queensland will head to Port Macquarie, with all important spots at the Bonville Champions Trophy on the line.

Headlining the Girls Divison are NSW Junior State Team players Ella Scaysbrook (The Australian) and Rachel Lee (Avondale) and A.C.T Junior State Team player Matilda Sullings (Federal), with regular JNJG Masters competitors Ann Jang (Toukley), Grace Lee (Concord), Michelle Bang (Concord) and Michelle Moon (NSW) also looking to claim the title.

The Boys Division also has a couple of Junior State Team players, with NSW represented by Josh Todd (The Australian) and A.C.T represented by Nathan White (Yowani). Brij Ingrey (The Australian), Josh Hawkshaw (Toukley) and Toby Farrar (The Australian) will be in search of their first JNJG Masters title, as will Queenslander Mark Chiswick (Southport) who is playing his first JNJG Tournament.

In total, 19 of the 100+ players in the field enter the tournament on handicaps of scratch or better, highlighting the strength of Junior Golf in NSW right now.

The opening round begins at 12:00pm on Saturday (shot-gun start), with play to begin at 8:00am on Sunday morning (shot-gun start).
