Junior Order of Merit

Seventeen gross pars and a lone bogey were on the remarkable scorecard of Charlie Pearce in the Peterborough Milton Boys Open as the home club member won the latest Junior Order of Merit event of the year.

The seven-handicapper’s net 65 lifted him three strokes clear of Giuseppe Memoli (Overstone Park) in the net competition, as he enjoyed the same margin of victory from club-mate Euan Herson (75) in the gross category.

Molly-May Baker (Northants County) compiled a consistent round of net 66 to win the girls competition by one stroke from home club member Maliha Mirza. Northampton’s Jade Potter shot the leading gross round of 74.
