by Golf Australia
Amelia Harris and Charlie Nobbs have powered to victories in the 2021 Victorian Junior Open.
With play taking place across both courses at 13th Beach Golf Links and Barwon Heads, players were greeted with fantastic conditions throughout the tournament.
The pair have also won their way into the 2022 Vic Open in February.
Harris led from the first day with consistent scores of 75, 72, 71 and 78.
The 13-year-old from Yarra Yarra Golf Club finished 12 clear of her nearest rival in Mt.Derrimut’s Louise Baliton.
Baliton was a further four shots clear of Alexandra Phanuruk who rounded out the top three.
A blistering final round 68 from Nobbs was the catalyst to his ten-shot victory.
After starting the tournament with a 74, Nobbs was seven shots back with work to be done.
A brilliant 66 on day two followed by a 70 on day three, paved the way for Nobbs to claim the title.
Ben McPherson and Michael Song finished equal second on two-over par for the tournament.
The overall girls net was won by Box Hill’s Jaehee Yun with a fantastic ten-under total for the four rounds.
Yun finished two shots clear of Victoria Golf Club’s Emily Wei.
In the overall boys’ net, Lonsdale Links’ Ben Waterson finished with a superb nine-under total to claim victory by three shots from Curlewis’s Ben Bowers.
The under 16 age divisions saw Gracie Larsen victorious in the girls after finishing three shots clear of Charlotte Paonessa whilst Rupert Toomey won the boys by three from Tyler Talbot.
In the under 14s, Phoenix Diaz was far too strong with a twelve-shot victory over Leo Yang whilst Amelia Harris added the under 14s trophy to her overall victory with Olive Spitty finishing in runner-up.
