Bexley Golf Club's Jeffrey Guan wins 2017 Aron Price Junior Open

Jeffrey Guan won his second Aron Price Junior Open in a row after taking out the boy’s A-grade competition on Thursday.

In cool and cloudy conditions at Kareela Golf Club, Jeffrey shot a one over par 66 to win the eighth edition of the annual tournament with the best scratch score.

The tournament, open to players aged 10 to 18 with a Golf Australia handicap, had A-graders playing stroke while B and C-graders played individual stableford.

A field of 56 boys and girls representing 32 clubs took part in the 2017 tournament coming from all over Sydney and NSW.

Jeffrey won the 2016 title after shooting an impressive one under 64 on the short but challenging course 12 months ago. While he would go on to win back to back boy’s scratch titles, Port Kembla Golf Club’s Selena Bosevski took out both the best girls nett and scratch competitions.

Cronulla Golf Club’s Isaac Fan had the best boys nett score of 62.

In the other grades, Marissa Hronis from Marrickville Golf Club had the best girls score with 43 points.

Kayun Mudadana made the most of home course advantage to win division one with 39 points, while another Kareela member Lachlan Waring won division two with 39 points.

Price, who plays on the web.com Tour in the US, missed the cut at the Australian Open last month.

The 35-year-old 2013 NSW Open winner played pennants golf at Kareela before going to play college golf in America with Georgia Southern University and turning professional in 2005.
