9th SGSC Junior Open Golf Championship Supported By Ajman Academy & Spectrum

Josh Hill of Jumeirah Golf Estates showed his golfing prouesse & took victory in the Championship by defeating the best juniors in the UAE in the 9th SGSC Junior Open Golf Championship supported by Ajman Academy and Spectrum Title. After a promising Men’s Open Championship during the previous weekend Josh came back with the bit between his teeth. In the front nine Josh recorded 3 Birdies and 7 Pars giving him a 3 under par score. In the back nine Josh recorded an uncharacteristic double bogy on the 11th hole but in a true champion’s style he bounced back with a birdy on the par 5, 13th Hole to get him back to 2 under par for his round. With a run of five consecutive Pars to close out the round Josh would record a round of 70, 2 under par.
Josh would eventually take the title by a margin of two shots as competitors Arjun Gupta from Emirates Golf Club & William Ang from Sharjah Golf & Shooting Club pushed him as much as they could on the day & posted impressive level par scores of 72. To determine who would claim the runner-up trophy a scorecard playoff was needed to separate the two young guns. With an accumulative five birdies between the two golfers on the back nine it would go down to the last 3 holes to separate the two & Arjun Would come out on top on this occasion.
