Lennox golfer Jay wins by record margin at Junior Masters

LENNOX Head golfer Jay Mackenzie won the boys division of the Peter O'Malley Junior Masters by a record margin at the Bathurst Golf Club.

Mackenzie fired two consecutive four-under par 67 rounds to beat his next closet rival by a massive 10 shots.

Starting the final round with a three-shot lead, Mackenzie had an early blemish on the fifth hole before storming to the title with five birdies in the final 11 holes to emphatically claim the win.

Mackenzie has already had a big month winning the Lismore Workers Golf Club Easter tournament.

He has been spending time training in Sydney after he was selected to represent NSW in the under-15 team in the Australian boys amateur and interstate team series in Tasmania.

The Australian boys amateur event will see him play 72 holes of stroke play.

He is a member of the Ballina Golf Club and started playing six years ago when he signed up to a junior program.

He finished fourth in the 15 years boys division of the NSW state age championships two years ago and then went on to become the youngest golfer to win the open club championship at Ballina.
