Chartham Park Junior Captain Joe Sullivan, competed recently in the prestigious Telegraph Vitality Junior Golf Championship at PGA Catalunya Resort in Spain. The field is restricted to 12 elite boys and 9 elite girls who qualified during 2018.

The 7,300 yard course provided a tough test during the 3 rounds, especially as recent rain made the course play longer and tougher due to the wet rough.

Joe battled well all week with rounds of 77 and 72 on days 1&2 leaving him in a tie for 3rd heading into the final day. Unfortunately, luck was against Joe on holes 9 and 10 with bad breaks seeing him drop 6 shots in 2 holes. However, an outstanding recovery of -4 for the last 8 holes saw him again climb the leader board to finish 4th. On the whole, an outstanding week with only misfortune stopping Joe from finishing higher.

The event was covered by Sky Sports cameras and the coverage was aired in mid December.
