SSV’ Region Golf Champions – Jeneath & Aaron

The ‘SSV’ Region Golf Championships were held at the Woodlands Golf Club with our GWSC Golf Team taking out all of the Senior Division titles on offer Congrats to our dynamic duo of Jeneath Wong and Aaron Tran, who secured hard fought victories in the Snr Girls and Snr Boys competitions respectively

In very windy and trying conditions, on the challenging Woodlands championship course, both Aaron and Jeneath used strategic course management and superior stroke play to card numerous birdies and plenty of pars. They hit the majority of fairways off the tee, settled plenty of their second shots onto the emerald carpet, went up and down when needed on the longer holes, in addition to draining a number of very difficult putts on the undulating greens along the front nine.

The ‘SSV’ and ‘Golf Australia’ representatives were very impressed by Jeneath and Aaron’s golfing deeds on the day, but more importantly they also praised the way in which both of our students conducted themselves and interacted with others on and off the course. It was so awesome to see both Aaron and Jeneath helping out less experienced players, providing them with some handy coaching tips whilst they competed alongside them, ensuring that everyone involved in the tournament enjoyed their golf and came away with a positive experience. Jeneath and Aaron should be very proud of their endeavours, as they represented themselves, their families and our College community with great distinction, kudos to you both!

Aaron and Jeneath now move onto the ‘SSV’ State Golf Championships, which are set to be played at the prestigious Metropolitan Golf Club in May. We wish them both all the best as they test out their games against the finest young golfers from around Victoria. Don’t forget to send that little dimpled ball home, to its happy place, in the bottom of the tin cup at the end of each hole….

We would also like to congratulate Jeneath on her wire-to-wire win in the 2021 Australian Junior Amateur Championships, which was recently contested at the Gold Creek Country Club in Canberra. Jeneath’s five-shot victory not only secured her back-to-back trophies in this major amateur tournament, but also gained her entry into the upcoming Women’s Australian Open where Jeneath will be competing against professional golfers on the ALPG Tour. We can’t wait to cheer on Jeneath against the pros in this tournament, which is set to be the first of many professional golf championships that she competes in!

Our College community looks forward to following the golfing journeys of Aaron and Jeneath, we envisage a very big future for them both based on their determination and dedication to their sporting pursuits…..We all think you are both 'tee-riffic' !!!! Apologies 'fore' the bad golf pun....there I go again....that was really a 'rough' one!
