Harry Hammond Award race heats up
The Harry Hammond Award race will take a monumental turn next week at Running Deer Golf Club, site of the Christman Cup presented by Global Golf Post. Here’s why.
Nicholas Gianelos leapt to a four-stroke lead with an impressive performance in the 102nd Junior Boys’ Championship Qualifier at Tavistock Country Club. The Radley Run Country Club youngster broke an event scoring record by carding a 7-under-par 65.
However, Gianelos isn’t competing in the Christman Cup, which accounts for two of the four rounds factored into the Harry Hammond Award. Therefore, the lead now shifts to Talamore Country Club’s Ron Robinson and Green Valley Country Club’s Andrew Wallace, who both fired respective 69s in the Junior Boys’ Qualifier. The two are participating in the Christman Cup.
Furthermore, 11 players within five shots of that number are in the Christman field. And a majority can work their way into contention with strong performances at Running Deer.
The buck certainly won’t stop next Thursday.
