Teenage golfer Joseph Williams (Moor Hall) says bagging a hole-in-one on the 17th hole in the Nuneaton Junior Open was the best moment of his golfing career so far.

On a glorious sunny day during half term, the 14-year-old found the bottom of the cup with a seven iron to win a special commemorative hole-in-one medal.

In the opening event of the 2021 Warwickshire Junior Order of Merit, a large field of 74 boys and girls took part in the 18-hole and nine-hole competitions, including 54 players from the home county.

Chanon James (Coventry) won the Boys gross competition by two strokes from Finley Stokes (Atherstone) after a 74, while Katie Drew (Copt Heath) clinched the Girls gross prize with a round of 81.

The net competition witnessed two magnificent winning scores as Juan Pienaar (Ladbrook Park) led the boys event on 62, while Jessica Davies (pictured) (The Warwickshire) carded 63 to beat Ella Tandy (Robin Hood) by four in the girls.

In the nine-hole Championship, which was aimed at younger golfers with a high handicap or no handicap at all, an excellent round of net 24 secured the honours for William Hardy (Maxstoke Park).
