Junior BGA Championship

Ashley Williams with BGA President


BGA Junior Championship

Played at Deane Golf Sunday 15th July 2012



Great Lever’s Ashley Williams clinched the BGA Junior Championship trophy last Sunday when he squeezed out runner-up Josh Ashton of Horwich on a card play-off after both boys produced an excellent 70 gross – four shots clear of the field.


These talented 16 year-olds battled it out on the Deane course but it was two late birdies by
Williams on the 16th and 18th which made the difference over Ashton, who was two in front at the turn but finished three over on the back nine.


Williams made his Lancashire junior debut last year at just fifteen and has played regularly for the County this season. Delighted with his win, he hopes to lower his current five handicap and step up to the senior level both within the BGA and County.


Harwood’s Ian Stirling made his last appearance in this championship and his creditable gross
74 earned him third place with James Tuck of Dunscar fourth also with a 74. Fifteen year old Michael Tunstall of Old Links shot an excellent round of 75 to finish fifth.


The best nett prize went to thirteen year old Alex Kiernan of Chorley with a 62 just one shot
better than Joe Gill of Turton in second place.

A Turton trio stole the show at Old Links last Saturday when they clinched all three nett prizes in
the Statham Trophy 4-BBB medal, in what was the first Bolton Golf Association’s
competition of the season.


Despite a strong field of over 200 competitors, it was Turton’s Andy Robinson and Derrick
Smethurst who grabbed the top prize with an excellent nett 66 – one shot clear
of second place John O’Hara and Adam Bullough with fellow club mates Billy
Dempsey and Mark Rothwell in third place, also with a nett 67.


The gross prize went to Jav Sabrine and his partner Gary Walker of Deane with a 71 on a card
play-off over second place John Maree and Rob Taylor of Bolton with Andrew
Taylor and Darren Hall of Dunscar in third spot.


Whilst not in the prizes, Andy Pilling from Deane was delighted with his hole in one on the 17th.
