Cottesmore golf course was the venue for the fifth tournament of the 2014 Junior Golf Challenge and Ryan Chilton became the fourth different winner in the under 13 age category this year showing how even all the players are this year. In a tightly contested competition, Ryan played a solid round and finished his nine holes in 43 shots which was one shot better than Kai Stevens who came second. Ryan’s success was mainly down to the consistent quality of his tee shots and he gained ten points for his victory which has moved him up to 32 points and means he is now only two points behind Ben Powell who is at the top of the leaderboard on 34 points. Kai, who went round in 44 shots, made a very impressive ten shot improvement on his last effort at Cottesmore in tournament four and his second place finish secured him a valuable eight points which means he is now in third place on 24 points.
