Jake Plumb is having a very successful season this year. The 12 year old, coached by golf professional John O’Leary who is based at the Whaddon Golf Centre, has won a number of key events over the last few weeks.

 

In May Jake took part in the series of British Junior Golf Tour events which resulted in him winning the final Order of Merit prize. The BJGT was staged over 6 rounds at a number of course including Bourn and Meridian in Cambridgeshire.

 

He went on to enter the Lee Westwood Golf Tour qualifier on July 2nd which was held at the Ufford Park course. With an overall net score of 68 Jake won an entry to the final which is being held at Gainsborough Golf Club in October this year.

 

The following day Jake entered the Cambridge Area Gold Union boys championship held at the Gog Magog Course in Cambridge and won the Under 12’s division with a gross score of 77 [ net 58].

 

The winning streak continued with the American Golf Junior Championship qualifier at The Shires course near London. Here, Jake was the Boys Net Winner which now qualifies him for the final at Gainsborough on 16th August.

 

It has been a pretty impressive Summer for Jake with his run of wins. Hopefully the haul is not finished yet and that he goes onto win the finals of the Lee Westwood Golf Tour and the American Golf Junior Championship. Jake Plumb is a name to watch for the future.
