Coby and Sarah celebrate with their championship cups at Byron Bay GC.

Coby Carruthers and Sarah Hammett have won the 2022 NSW Junior Championships played in Ocean Shores and Byron Bay to secure their spots in the 2023 NSW Open.

Coby Carruthers maintained his two-shot lead in the boy’s division ahead of the final round after a two under par 70 at Ocean Shores, last Thursday. He was one of six golfers in the red going into the final, with just four shots separating the group.

In the final he shot 74 for an aggregate of 212, giving him a narrow win over Harrison Gomez (Royal Pines, Qld) who, despite shooting 72 in the final round, finished with a total of 213.

Sarah Hammett (Emerald Lakes, Qld) fought her way to victory after coming into the final day in fourth position, four under par.

She ended that score to five under, after scoring 73 in the final round and an aggregate of 215. Leaving her two ahead of her nearest rival Jeneath Wong (Melbourne) who finished on 217.
