Darcy & Annika Boyd represented Toukley Golf Club at the Australian Junior Championships in Tasmania from the 13th-15th April 2016.
A field of 156 boys played for the Australian Junior Boys Championship with a qualifying cut after 36 holes for the top 60 players.
Darcy had rounds of 73 & 78 (+7) to finish in 32nd spot at the 36 hole mark. In the 3rd round Darcy was even par with 5 holes to play before a quadruple bogey 7 on the par 3 5th halted his move up the leader board for a round of 77. A final round of 79 gave Darcy a total of 307 (+19) to finish in 42nd position overall.
Ulverstone is not a long course but very tight off the tee and punishing if you miss the greens which a number of high profile players found out during the week.
Annika played consistently in her first national junior championship with rounds of 85 (+11) and 84 (+10) which left her in 70th position with the top 60+ ties making the cut. Having just turned 14 the tournament was a great experience competing with some of the best female golfers in the country.
Congratulations to Daniel Hillier and Karis Davidson who took out the 2016 Australian Boys & Girls Junior Championships.
