Jamie Scapin took full advantage of playing on his home course to take out the Boys’ Junior Masters Champion title at the City of Greater Shepparton Masters.
The two-day, 36-hole event, which brings together the Shepparton Golf Club and Mooroopna Golf Club junior events to find an overall junior champion, finished on Monday after two days of play at Mooroopna.
Monday’s play was scheduled to be played at Shepparton Golf Club, however, damage from a fire in the roof of the clubhouse meant play was at Mooroopna.
Scapin took out the boys’ title with an impressive scratch score of 144 for the 36 holes, while Thurgoona’s Rachel Fellows won the Girls’ Junior Masters Champion title with a score of 181.
Fellows said she thoroughly enjoyed the event.
‘‘It was a nice course and it was well organised,’’ Fellows said.
‘‘I’ve been playing golf for around two years, but this was my first win at an event like that.
‘‘I didn’t play my best, but it was good enough over the two days.’’
Mooroopna Golf Club PGA Professional Chris Donovan said numbers were slightly down, with some competitors coming from Melbourne as well as other regional areas, on previous years, but the quality was as good as ever.
‘‘We had 25 on Sunday and 26 on Monday, so it wasn’t a massive field by any means,’’ Donovan said.
‘‘It’s slightly down on past years for varying reasons I suppose .
‘‘You just have to look at what Jamie shot, going two-under two days in a row as a 15-year old.
‘‘Overall, the scores were very good.’’
Prizes worth $1000 were handed out during the two days.
Mooroopna Golf Club will now turn its attention to preparing for the Mooroopna Masters in two weeks’ time, which is another 36-hole event.
‘‘We’re hoping to have 50-odd entries from around the state,’’ Donovan said.
