BannLynch Golf coaches Denis McDade and Michael Sund couldn’t be prouder this week… two juniors who have been working hard for some time under their tutelage have celebrated dual Australian titles this week – Ryan Ruffels victorious in the Australian Boys’ Championship and Kono Matsumoto claiming the Australian Girls’ Championship.

15 year old Ruffels became a household golfing name when he shone in last years’ Australian Open, whilst Matsumoto won our hearts when she teed it up in this year’s Australian Women’s Open, just a few weeks ago. These two amazingly talented youngsters are both members of the Victoria Golf Club and are being nurtured by McDade and Sund as part of BannLynch Golf’s Junior Performance Centre at Yarra Bend. No doubt they will have been watching two other Aussies this past week… Oli Goss taking the low-amateur this morning at The Masters, and Minjee Lee taking the low-amateur at the Kraft Nabisco (first women’s ‘Major’ of 2014, played last week) thinking…. that may soon be me! Bring it on!!!
