Owen Green wins PING Junior Masters Grand Final at Close House

Owen Green led a field of 67 juniors from across the UK – representing clubs from Royal Norwich to Fife – to lift the PING Junior Masters Grand Final trophy at Close House.

Owen – from Stoke Rochford in Lincolnshire – shot a superb 10 under-par score to come in with 46 points and win the overall title by seven shots.

The event once again brought together qualifiers from nine venues across England and Scotland to compete on the Lee Westwood Colt Course at Close House. While Owen led the overall field and the under-12 boys’ category; Ava Allenby (U12 girls), Scarlette Richardson (U15 girls), Henry Price (U15 boys), Jorja Newbould (U18 girls) and Charlie Farquharsen (U18 boys) led their respective categories.

Each of this year’s qualifying events saw two boys and one girl from the under 12, under 15 and under 18 categories progress to the final – which was once again supported by PING.

Jonathan Lupton, managing director of Close House, said: “It is fantastic that the event continues to offer children of all handicaps the chance to compete the honour of being the Junior Masters champion. The standard of golf on show was excellent, and seeing the children enjoy the event was very rewarding. We hope to continue the growth of the event in 2024.”
