NSW wins the Interstate of the Australian boys of 2019

View the final Interstate results for boys

New South Wales won the Interstate Teams Matches of the Australian Boys in 2019 after the final round of games played this morning on the beautiful Sanctuary Cove Palms course. (Wednesday, April 17).

The Gold Coast turned a postcard on the blue-sky day for New South Wales to complete the 24th title win, albeit in the final round to the host in Queensland with three games against two.

It is the most important moments that matter in golf, just ask the boys of the national champion New South Wales boys.

The young Blues took their victory this morning on their way to the Junior Interstate Series crown in Sanctuary Cove, safe in the knowledge that they could not be defeated.

But when Queensland awarded the arch-rival NSW its first loss of the week in what was ultimately a dead rubber, it not only allowed the host to rush to second position, it underlined the tight nature of the week's competition

Newly crowned Australian Boys & # 39; champion Elvis Smylie led the way to Queensland today with a 4 & 3 win over NSW No.1 Harrison Crowe to achieve a tight 3-2 win.

It covered a stellar two weeks for Smylie, who remained unbeaten all week in the No. 1 position for Queensland.

Nonetheless, NSW was a deserved champion while winning six of the seven general matches, including a number of match matches. Queensland finished in second place, half a match behind, with South Australia third on countback over Victoria, both just one win behind Queensland.

A fascinating week of interstate golf was reflected in the total individual competitions won by the leading five states with NSW in 23 competitions and Western Australia in fifth place at 21.5.

Peter Ipkendanz, in his first victory as NSW manager, could not have been more proud.

"After I defeated Queensland on the last day last year, but finished second, this is so much better and I'm so happy for the boys," he said.

"All players from all states should be proud of their efforts because they fought hard to win matches, played great golf but did it in the most sporting way. It's great to be part of something like this."

In addition to Smylie, three other players were unbeaten in the seven rounds – Nicholas Siegmund and WA pair from South Australia, Jordan Jung and Joshua Greer.

Jung, a member on Mount Lawley, remarkably followed by a hole with one to play in his last match against Victoria & Mitchell Crabbe today and faced a 30m greenside bunker shot on the par-five fourth hole, the last of it couple.

But the 16-year-old immediately fled to the eagle to complete the game and achieved undefeated honor for the week when WA fought a tight 2.5-2.5 draw with the Vics.

David Greenhill, the senior manager of Golf Australia, paid tribute to both the City Golf Club in Toowoomba and Sanctuary Cove for offering perfect courses for Australia's junior talent to participate this week.

Greenhill said that all players and officials praised the layouts and the enormous hospitality and support provided by the clubs.
