It goes without saying that due to the worldwide pandemic, running the 2020 ‘Junior Order Of Merit’ was always going to be challenging, however following a discussion between the Junior Managers and a count up of how many clubs had not been forced to cancel their events, it was agreed that the seven remaining Junior Opens, plus the County Junior Championships constituted enough qualifying events to attempt to get a result.
As it happened, due to the lockdown, a record number of 34 girls entered and 85 boys participated in the available tournaments.
The results, which can be seen under the Juniors tab on the website, are based on points awarded for a players best 6 scores over the season.
Congratulations go to Rio Saigal (Moor Park)(124 points) & Tala Clarke (Knebworth)(62 points) for winning the scratch events for the Boys and Girls respectively and Louis Hudspith (Knebworth)(83 points) & Sai Murukuntla (West Herts)(65 points) for winning the handicap events.
We’re all keeping our fingers crossed that next year’s 2021 season will run as normal as possible.
