11 Jan Maroochy River Juniors
A number of Maroochy River Juniors have competed in various junior competitions over the school holidays. Over the Easter weekend, Bailey Murchie & Rhett Rosenius competed in the Sunshine Coast Amateur at the Headland Golf Club. Both put in great efforts with Rhett grabbing the C Grade Nett Runner/up.
Next was the Invincibles Tour Matchplay Championships. Tyler Quaill played some of his best golf to date, making it all the way to the Grand Final at Pelican Waters against Will Bowen from Royal Queensland. They both played unbelievable golf, unfortunately Tyler couldn’t quite get it done, going down 3/2.
The 2 day Golf Queensland Easter Classic at Pelican Waters where we had Bailey Murchie, Tyler Quaill, Rhett Rosenius, Luke Barnes, Kyle Breytenbach & Ionna Muir all completed in the 18 hole 2 day event. All had a great two days playing some good golf with Luke & Kyle earning some great tournament experience.
Australian Junior Aged Division Championships just wrapped up in the last couple of days with Tyler Quaill, Ellianna MacRae & Brody MacRae heading north to Yeppoon to complete against some of Australia’s best juniors.
They all competed well and all came away with championship medals. Tyler Quaill came in 4th place in the 13-14 year boys division. Brody MacRae came in 5th place in the 6 & under boys division. Ellianna MacRae came in 1st and was crowned Australian Junior Aged Champion in the 7-8 year girls division.
On behalf of the Maroochy River Juniors we would also like to acknowledge and show our appreciation to Carmel Smith who gave up her time also to head to Yeppoon to help as a Tournament & Rules Official at these Australian Junior Aged Championships.
