Gulf Weekly McIlear triumphs

GOLFING prospect Lee McIlear cemented his position as top junior at Awali Golf Club. The Audi Junior Series consisted of eight rounds in which Lee picked up first place in all six that he entered.

With some excellent scoring throughout the weeks and standing strong against the competition, McIlear headed into the final stage facing a challenge from fellow 12-years- olds, Luc Garrett and Faris Jafar.

Garrett pulled out his best score in the series to pip Jafar to second place, no mean feat as the latter had been a consistent performer and never outside the Top 3 places.

There was more good news for Garrett as he also took away the prize for the ‘most improved player’ after lowering his score by a massive 22 shots throughout the eight rounds.

“A huge thank you must go to Awali Golf Club, Audi Centre Bahrain and, of course, to the parents for their support of Junior Golf. It’s been a fantastic start to competitive golf for the juniors and I’m excited to see how it develops for the 2018/19 season,” said head professional Rory Young.
