Australian Junior C/ships, Perth April 2013

Report by Jim Jackson on the Perth trip, click here.

 Please note  – a late change to the team Patrick Maher is replacing Nick Fitzpatrick, both Fairbairn members.
Today, Steve Whitelock (Coach) and Jim Jackson (Manager) announced the names of the six boys that will represent the ACT at the major annual national junior events being held in Western Australia in April.   The 2013 Australian Junior Boys’ Open is scheduled at Pinjarra Golf Club, near Mandurah, between 10th — 12th April; this is followed by the Junior Interstate Series which is to be contested at Bunbury Golf Course between 15th and 18th April. 
Three of the boys played in the ACT team that went to Bribie Island last year — Josh Armstrong (Gold Creek),  James Correll (Federal) and Jakub Gancarz (Yowani) — so are hoping that their experience holds them in good stead for this year.    There are three new players in the team — Patrick Maher (Fairbairn), Josh Hunter (Federal)  and Thomson Stuckey (Royal Canberra); however, Josh recently represented the ACT at the Junior Open in Alice Springs, so is no stranger to travelling.
The team contains a nice balance of age and youth with all of the boys on low single figure handicaps.  Jim is expecting good results from the team and hopes to get at least two into the final rounds of the Junior Boys’ Open.  Likely results in the Interstate Series are always difficult to predict as team strengths for the smaller States varies from year to year.  Jim will be disappointed if the team does not record two or possibly even three wins.  
The team departs on 8th April and returns to Canberra on 18th April.

Results of Junior week of golf October 2012



by Jim Jackson, Manager The ACT Junior Golf Team recorded similar results in this year’s annual boys’ junior championships, held in Queensland, when compared to previous years. The Australian Junior Boys’ Open was held at the Bribie Island Golf Club during a windy week, whilst the Interstate Series was held at a less windy, but occasionally wetter, Pacific Harbour Golf Club. INTERSTATE SERIES The team finished 7th out of 8 positions. We recorded one win in the last game against the NT and squared the contest in the first game against S.A., who were the eventual winners. On the second and third afternoons the ACT team was hammered 5-0 by both NSW and WA – we are yet to determine why we appear to perform so badly in the afternoons. In contrast, and similar to last year, we suffered close losses against both Queensland and Tasmania — with a bit of luck we could have finished higher. The game against Queensland was particularly frustrating as near the end we appeared to have a shock win in the bag. Josh Armstrong at #5 had won 2&1, and both James Correll (playing at #4) and Charlie Cameron (playing at #2) were leading with a couple of holes to go. Although Charlie eventually beat Queensland #2 star Jordan McCarthy 1-up, James faded and finished 1-down; so sadly we lost 2/3. In contrast to previous years, where the Interstate competition has been dominated by the two States of Queensland and NSW, this year’s competition was much more open. Victoria, Queensland and the NT were strong early in the week, only to be overtaken by South Australia who won their final three games to take the title by 6.5 contests to 5.5 contests over Queensland, with Victoria just 0.5 point behind in 3rd position. A complete summary of the team results is provided in the table at the end of this report. The most successful players for the ACT were the Captain Lewis Schenk (at number 1 or 2) who recorded two wins; Charlie Cameron (at number 1 or 2) who recorded 2 wins and a square, and the youngest player at the championships, 12 years-old Josh Armstrong (playing at number 4 or 5 ) with 3 wins and a square. There were a number of individual highlights that I’ll mention, but there are probably many others I have missed:

  • Charlie Cameron squaring his match against SA number 1 player Anthony Murdaca. Although Anthony finished in 12th place in the Junior Open at Bribie this year, he did win the competition 2 years ago in Launceston, so he is a class player;
  • Charlie Cameron’s win over Queensland number 2 Jordan McCarthy (mentioned above);
  • Lewis Schenk’s 2up win over vastly experienced Victorian Squad member Ben Eccles in Round 6, after James Correll had just squared with Victorian number 2 Lucas Herbert;
  • Jakub’s great fight back from 4 behind in the second round against NSW after we had already lost 4 matches. Jakub hit a great 3-wood second shot into the last green to within a metre, but unfortunately missed the putt so could only square the hole and lose the match 1-down;
  • Charlie and Jakub’s close 1-up wins against the NT team’s number 3 and 5 players (Andrew Wilson and Michael Henderson), which enabled us to retain the Inter-territories Cup 3-2, for yet another year.
  • James Correll’s rendition of Love Shack Baby after dinner at the Blue Pacific Hotel’s Karaoke night.

Unfortunately, none of the six ACT juniors qualified for the four rounds of the Australian Boys’ Amateur Championships, which were held at the Bribie Island Golf Course in the week prior to the Interstate Series.  James Correll (Federal Golf Club) went closet when he finished on 157, with rounds of 79 and 78; he missed the cut be 3.  As noted above, the first two days were very windy which made playing conditions very difficult.  The eventual winner was N.Z. junior Tyler Hodge with rounds of 69, 68, 71 and 75 for a total of 283, one shot better than Queensland number 1 player Viraat Badhwar on 284. Young Ryan Ruffel’s who now plays for Victoria, but who played for the ACT for the previous two events, continues to improve and finished in equal 7th place on a score of 290. On behalf of the ACT-Monaro DGA I would like to thank Steve Whitelock (Gold Creek), who was a great coach and mentor to the boys for the whole 10 days we were away.  Also Bev Evans for shopping and laundry assistance; and the three Dads and one Mom (Dave and Lyn Armstrong, Peter Theodosiou and Ian Cameron), who were great comforters and advisers to all of the team members. ACT 2012 Junior Golf Team L to R: Theo Theodosiou, Steve Whitelock (coach), Josh Armstrong, James Correll, Jakub Gancarz,  Charlie Cameron and  Lewis Schenk (Captain).  


The ACT-Monaro DGA has selected the following six juniors to represent the A.C.T. at the next Interstate Series which is to be held at the Pacific Harbour Golf Club on Bribie Island in Queensland —  Josh Armstrong (Gold Creek Country Club, h/c 1); Charlie Cameron (Royal Canberra Golf Club, h/c 2); James Correll (Federal Golf Club, h/c 3); Jacob Gancarz (Yowani Country Club, h/c 4); Lewis Schenk ((Federal Golf Club, h/c 1) and Theo Theodosiou (Royal Canberra Golf Club h/c 3).  In addition, Ben Hogan (Gungahlin Lakes Golf Club, h/c 3) has been chosen as first reserve. The annual ‘Australian Boys’ Interstate Team Matches’ competition is for under 18-year olds and has been running since 1986, but the ACT has only competed since 2002. It will be contested between 16th and 19th April on the Pacific Harbour Golf Course on Bribie Island, and comprises 8 rounds of match-play.  The ACT’s best previous performance was 4th place (ocb) in 2007 at the Royal Perth Golf Club in W.A.    In one of the rounds the ACT team will play against a team from the NT with the ‘Inter-Territories Cup’ at stake. In the 10 years that the Cup has been played for the NT have only defeated the ACT once.  Josh, Charlie and Lewis, will have some idea of what to expect as they have the experience of playing in the last Interstate Series, which was held at the Cabramatta Golf Club last April. The six boys that comprise the team will also be entered in to the 2012 Australian Boys’ Open Amateur Championships which are due to be played in the week before the Interstate Series on the Bribie Island Golf Course.  This event consists of four rounds of stroke play, with the field cut after 2 rounds to the top 60 only.   The highest position that one of our boys has attained was equal18th by Nick Cochrane in 2005.  Previous winners of this event include Adam Scott and Jason Day.


Despite magnificent weather, with ideal playing conditions, the golf course was the overall winner at Yowani on Friday 13/1/2012, as none of the 23 low handicap juniors managed to beat the 72 par (ACR 74) for the course.  RCGC’s Charlie Cameron, who plays off a 2 h/c won the Division 1 event with a Gross Score of 74.  Charlie’s score could well have been sub-par, but the birdie on the first hole and four birdies on the back nine were somewhat spoilt by double bogies on 9 and 13.  Charlie’s playing partners — Dylan Wallace (Yowani CC) with 80, Lewis Schenk (Federal GC) with 83 and Patrick Maher (Fairbairn GC) with 92 all struggled with the course where firm greens, which appeared a little slow, caused many problems.  Twelve year old Josh Armstrong (Gold Creek CC) who also plays off a 2 handicap, played a strong game to secure 2nd place with a gross score of 76.  Having dad on the bag must be a positive influence and it probably helped Josh to play his steady round — his worse scores were bogies (on five holes) with just the one birdie on the par 5 10th hole.  Mathew Temple from Catalina (h/c 4) was one shot behind Josh in third place. The major prize in Division 2 – for players with handicaps above 14 — was a hard fought contest. Tahj Ackling (h/c 35) from Tura Beach Golf Club just ‘shaded’ Chris Ting (Fairbairn GC, h/c 25) on a count back, as both finished on 42 points.  Both players should justifiably lose a stroke or two off their respective handicaps with such good scores on a tough course.  Callum Williams (Gungahlin Lakes, h/c 17), who finished 3rd, was looking good early on with his 37 points, as the next best scores that had been returned were a 34 points and several 33 points. That is until Tahj and Chris’s penultimate group arrived back at the club house with their impressive score cards. The prize for the best girl’s score was won by Grace Hallinan (Yowani) who scored a gross 84 (nett 76) by beating Mackenzie Rice from Federal on a count back. The DGA and all of the players in the total field of 47 thank Yowani Country Club for the use of their course, which was in excellent condition. I also thank Gail Goiser (Queanbeyan Golf Club) for her assistance throughout the day with the running of the event. Some of the prizes awarded – golf umbrellas and Pro V golf balls — were supplied by one of our sponsors, Titleist. Report by  M J Jackson (JPO)
