GOLF/TELY JUNIOR TOUR

Michael Simms carded an even-par 35 over the front nine holes to win the bantam division in Wednesday’s Tely Junior Golf Tour stop at the Grand Falls Golf Club. The 12-year-old plays out of the Clovelly Golf Club in St. John’s. Evan D’Angelo was six shots behind in second and Nash Denic’s 42 was third.
Andrew Bruce and Matthew Bonnell fired 81s over 18 holes to tie for first in a very crowded and tight juvenile field. Grant Lane’s 82 was good for second, while Daniel Bruce and Jacob Parsons shot an 83 to lock down third.
Daniel Penney was the top junior with a 98, two shots better than Jonathan Cashin and seven strokes ahead of Zachary Parsons, the only other golfers in the division.
Jayne Hamlyn ran away with the girls’ division, shooting a 44 over nine holes. Abigail Hickey took second with a 64 while Taylor Cormier and Paige Hickey had matching 73s and tied for third.
The tour continues today with the Gander Junior Open.
