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.

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.
