GRAYS junior golfer Patrick Arundel has won through to the national final of the American Golf Junior Championship with a hugely impressive display in the Gross score category at the Shire Golf Club regional qualification event.
Patrick put in a fantastic display in the category which offers no help from a handicap. He carded a superb round of six over par, in tough conditions off an impressive handicap of 4, which left him four shots clear of Maidenhead junior Liam Debattista. He now progresses to the National final on 16th August at Gainsborough Golf Club, headquarters to golf manufacturer Ping, where he will take on qualifiers from all over the U.K. and Ireland for the coveted trophy.
Daniel Gathercole, Director of Marketing and Communications at American Golf commented, “This is the fourth year for the Junior Championships and we’ve got another crop of youngsters who are playing some very impressive golf. Once again though I’m most impressed by the sportsmanship and positive attitude that we’ve got used to seeing. We can’t wait to get these great young golfers to Gainsborough for the final and, with the help of Ping, make it a truly memorable event.”
Entry to all of the American Golf Championships, including the Junior Championships, is completely free and is part of the nationwide retailer’s drive to promote the game of golf and get more people out playing golf more often.
