Open and Junior Golf- We had two boys represent Salesian College at the VIC- Independent Schools Golf State. This was played at The National Golf Course, Frankston. It was a later start with a 12:00pm kick off. The boys Ryan Langworthy, participating in the open golf and Elbert Kim, participating in the junior golf, both very eager to play. It was a cold and windy day which made the conditions difficult. It was a great effort to see both the boys give there all for the day. On the day Elbert Kim scored a 76, with being +4. It was an outstanding effort being placed 4th in a competition of 21. All participants did extremely well. Well done Elbert on 4th place in the junior division. Ryan Langworthy scored a 119, with being +47. We know Ryan Is a very talented golfer and unfortunately it wasn’t his day. He still did very well for the tough conditions and deserves a pat on the back. Yet again, well done to both students who represented the college in an respectful and honourable manner. Well done boys!
