Betschart Begins R&A Junior Open

The 2022 R&A Junior Open is being hosted at Monifieth Golf Links, Monifieth, Scotland. The R&A Junior Open has Boys and Girls from over 60 countries competing against each other.

This year marks a tournament debut for 13-year-old Oliver Betschart, The Bermuda Golf Association Male Junior representative for 2022.

In testing wind conditions with the 11:18 am tee time, in his first tournament on a traditional links-style golf course, Betschartís first hole saw him open with a Double-Bogey. He went on to post four Bogeys and a Birdie to shoot a four-over on his opening nine. During the course of the afternoon, he faced increasing winds with repeated shifts and came back in with a battling five-over, 40 to post a final score of 9-over par, 81.

One of the youngest competitors in the field, an opening-round 81, leaves Oliver in a tie 79th place, only two shots back from making the 36-hole cut line.

The top 80 including ties will make the cut and progress to the final round of The R&A Junior Open.

Betschartís Second Round tee time at the par 72 Monifieth Golf Links for tomorrow is at 2:48 pm.
