James Jarvis wins tight race in Durban

20th September – Local Royal Durban Golf Club junior, James Jarvis, emerged from a tightly packed group to win the 4th event in the 2020/2021 Bridge Fund Managers Junior Series (BFMJS) Tour. The players all experienced a beautiful windless Durban morning at a Royal Durban course that was in tip top condition.

James had a level par 1st 9 that included 2 birdies and 2 drops whilst he finished with a 1 over par 38 for the 2nd 9. A number of players were in with a shout but the steady golf of James saw him push over the line.

By winning the Royal Durban leg James has qualified for the regional North finals of the BFMJS, where he will be playing for the opportunity to compete at Pinehurst in July 2021.
