Small and Lee Become First Time Winners at Brett Ogle

(Sunday 26th November, 2017)

Overnight leaders Clayton Small (Long Reef) and Shannon Lee (Ryde Parramatta) have blown away the field at the 2017 Brett Ogle Junior Masters to win their first overall JNJG Titles.

Small backed up his opening eight under par 63 with an incredible six under par 65 to win by a huge margin of 12 shots. Small had 19 birdies in 36 holes, a JNJG tournament record to qualify and grab the last spot in the 2017 Bonville Champions Trophy, which begins on Tuesday.

In the Girls Division, Lee was pushed all the way by Concord young guns Claire Shin and Sophie Yip before picking up birdies on the 17th and 18th to win by four.

Birdie or Bust at Brett Ogle Junior Masters

(Saturday 25th November, 2017)

On a perfect day for scoring, the juniors competing in the 2017 Brett Ogle JM have taken full advantage, with plenty of players in red figures on day one.

Clayton Small (Long Reef) was the standout and will take a five shot lead into the final round after a remarkable eight under par 63. Starting on the 10th, Small got off to a fast start with four birdies in his opening seven holes. A bogey on the 18th saw the Maitland junior make the turn in three under par, trailing playing partner Brad Doherty (Oatlands) by one shot after the 17 Year old picked up two eagles of his own on the front nine. Small picked up two more birdies on the 1st and 2nd, before dropping his second shot of the day on the 3rd. It failed to slow him down however, reeling off four more birdies over the closing six holes to finish with 10 birdies in total in his round of 63.

Whilst a 63 deserves to take all the headlines, what's just as remarkable is the person who sits in second place.....Ali Rachid (Bardwell Valley) broke par for the first ever time on Saturday, at just 13 years of age, on his way to an incredible 68. Rachid rolled in birdies on the 2nd, 5th, 8th and 9th to also turn in four under par, and after dropping shots on the 11th and 12th, you'd have forgiven the youngster of thinking that elusive sub-par round might elude him yet again. But birdies on the 13th and 14th, one of them a chip-in, ensured Rachid would finish in red-figures for the first time.

Shannon Lee (Ryde Parramatta) was brilliant in the girls event, leading by two shots on a congested leaderboard after breaking par herself with a two under par 70. Lee was rock solid on Saturday, making birdie on three par 5s before dropping her only shot of the day on the 4th (her 13th). Chasing Lee is 17 Year Old Kelsey Bennett (St Michael's) and Concord pair Sophie Yip and Claire Shin who all fired ever par 72's.

The stableford division, being held for the last time with the new 11 Years and Under Division being introduced in 2018, once again saw amazing scores with newcomers Shashank Koirala (Hurstville) and Adam Ding (Bexley) both scoring 50 points+ on the shortened course, whilst JNJG regular Sophia Perkins (Cronulla) starred with 40 points in the Girls.

Junior Masters Series to end with Brett Ogle JM

(Thursday 23rd November, 2017)

After a long Masters Series season, the final event of the year will conclude this weekend with the 2017 Brett Ogle JM at the Goulburn Golf Club. Whilst a capacity field of 128 players will try to etch their name onto the Brett Ogle JM trophy, it's also the final chance for those battling it out for the Masters Points Race to earn enough points to win their division and qualify for the Greg Norman Junior Masters on the Gold Coast.

Jye Halls (Mollymook) and Josh Robards (Newcastle) have already played their way to Queensland after dominant seasons in the 13 Years and Under and 14-15 Years Divisions respectively, whilst Brad Doherty (Oatlands) and Luka Brucic (St Michael's) will battle it out this weekend for the 16-17 Years Points Race trophy and final boys exemption.

Like it has been all season, the Girls Divisions are much closer with no player guaranteed a spot in the Greg Norman Junior Masters just yet. Sophie Yip (Concord) has almost done enough to qualify but if she happens to slip up at Goulburn, Concord team-mate Claire Shin could win the 13 Years and Under Division. Kelsey Bennett (St Michael's), Shannon Lee (Ryde-Parramatta) and Isabelle Hawes (Royal Canberra) are locked in a three-way battle for the 16 Years and Over spot, although Bennett is in the box seat holding a 30 point advantage. The closest division of all is the Girls 14-15 Years, with Annika Boyd (Toukley) and Yerin Kim (Concord) tied on 210 points and will face off this weekend in a winner-take-all showdown.

Play begins on Saturday Morning at 11:15am, with the round one draw and leaderboards available at the links below. The draw for the final round will be seeded, with play to get underway via a shot-gun start at 7:15am on Sunday morning.

2017 Brett Ogle Junior Masters

(Monday 24th July, 2017)

Despite the tournament not being on for another four months, some parents (and staff) have recently tried to book accommodation for the 2017 Brett Ogle Junior Masters at the Goulburn Golf Club and found out that all hotels are completely booked out, and have been for some months. We did some research and discovered that there is a basketball tournament being held on the same weekend in Goulburn and due to this primary school basketball carnival being on, all accommodation options in Goulburn are completely booked out for the entire weekend.

As a result, and with the help of the Goulburn Golf Club in rescheduling some club events, the 2017 Brett Ogle JM has been moved back a weekend, with the tournament now to be held on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th November, 2017.

JNJG would like to thank the number of parents who notified us of the accommodation shortage and apologises for the date change, but this change now means you’ll be able to find somewhere to stay and come and play in the 2017 Brett Ogle Junior Masters.

JNJG would like to encourage all parents to book accommodation now if you’re planning on playing in that event as the remaining hotels will fill up quickly too, but at least you have options now and won’t be faced with the “sold-out” sign at every hotel.

If you have any questions about the 2017 Brett Ogle JM, do not hesitate to contact the JNJG office on 9567 7736.
