Junior Academy Results 2022

Jacob is Academy Champion Again

There is no question that this will be Lucas Taylor’s and Jacob Taylor’s final year in the Academy Championships as their golf gets too good to compete at this level . Both players have upgraded to the Griffin Course and the Junior Members competitions and Lucas has had fantastic results in Country championships but for now we have a fantastic cliff hanger to end the season. Jacob successfully defended his Academy Championship and that now puts him just a half point behind his brother for the Academy Order of Merit. Both boys played fantastic with Jacob scoring 34 shots for the 9 holes and Lucas was 36 for the 9 holes. The Autumn Championship in mid October will be an exciting watch to see how each of them handle the situation.

Jacob Back on Top

Jacob Taylor won both the August and September 9 – Hole stablefords to stay on top of the year long table. The player’s best 6 results from the first 9 events count towards the order of merit before October, November and December’s events. Jacobs 2 wins gives him a little breathing space as we head into the final three events. He is being pushed by Ricardo Pianta who added a great second place in September to just sit 5.5 points behind.

Ricardo Pianta has hit form just at the right time with wins in the June and the July 9-hole Stablefords. In the June Stableford event his 18 points just pipped Lucas Shek and Charlie Boyes on count back, While the July event his 22 points was three clear of Beau Conley and Freddie Hopkins.

In the May stableford it was Joshua Stone who showed everyone the benefit of practicing consistently when he romped home with 22 points to finish 3 clear of Ioan Havard’s best finish of 19 points which pipped the back in form Freddie Hopkins from 2nd spot.

The April event was won by the fast improving Jack Harrison-Lennon who posted his best score to finish just one ahead of last years 9 Hole Champion, Lucas Taylor, who needed the good finish to keep within touching distance of his brother, Jacob, who despite only finishing 4th, still extended his lead at the top of the Order of Merit.

Kade Fullarton had his third win of the year when he finished top in the March 9 Hole Stableford, following his win in the February Stableford. His 19 points just edged in front of Jacob Taylor who still holds a comfortable lead in the Order of Merit. But with only the best 6 of the first 9 events to count Kade’s 2 wins from 2 may hold him in good stead as we move deeper into the season.

Jacob Taylor, the 2021 Junior Academy Champion, started the season off perfectly scoring 18 points in the opening 9 hole stableford. The 8- year old showed his class in a cold January day to lead the field by 4, pushing Orla Phelan into a creditable second place.

Freddie’s Back

Freddie Hopkins has bounced back after a light 2021. Partnering his dad Dean, Freddie won the Winter Junior Adult Foursomes with a score of 31 which tied with Joshua and Darren Stone who were pipped into second place on count back. It was the 4th second place in a row for Joshua Stone, but we know if he keeps working hard he will find the silverware again. Third place was grabbed by Laif Campbell with his dad Warren who beat 2 other pairs on count back with a score of 34.

Taylor Boys Battle it out Again

It has been happening for a couple of years now and we will never tire of Jacob Taylor and Lucas Taylor battling it out on the golf course for top honours. This time it is the Summer Pairs where both boys have finished with 49 points from the 6 events and in each event always having a different partner. The 2 man scramble events partners the most experienced player with the least experienced player and the 2nd most experienced player with the 2nd least experienced player and so on. Lucas was behind his younger brother all season but his wins in the last two events drew him level. In effect Lucas has won The Summer Pairs League on count back (having more wins) stealing it away from his brothers grasp. Yet again proving to never give up!

Freddie Steals Winter Pairs from Lucas

With rounds 4 and 5 being cancelled due to course closures Freddie Hopkins finished 3rd in the final event, partnered with Aidan Riley to finish just one point ahead of Lucas Shek who finished a disappointing tied 6th. it was a tight finish for many with only 2.5 points separating the top 5 players in the Order of Merit.

The final event was won by Charlie Boyes and Joshua Stone.

Winter Scramble another Success

 

With scrambles not being played over the last couple of years due to Covid, it was great to see friendliest of formats being enjoyed once more. With over 30 participants the scoring was fantastic and it was great to see new winners holding the trophies. Pat Phelan led his kids Orla and Daniel to the top of the leaderboard and very ably assisted by seasoned champion Kade Fullarton. The team finished just one shot ahead of Darren and Joshua Stone with Alfie Peacock
