Day 1 of this 3 round championship got underway with the favourites leading the field.
Lamindu Rainaka carded an 81 followed closely by Hiruna Sigera on 82, Buddika Jayalath 84, Prashan Lakshitha 85, Armand Flamer-Caldera and Praveen Raj on 89 being the top 5 Juniors vying for the main Gold Division title for 17 years and under.
In the Silver Division for 11-14 years, the top 3 contenders completed rounds of 81 – Sathsara Dilshan, 83 – Taniya Minel, and 83 - Vinod Weerasinghe.
In the Bronze Division for years 10 and under for 2 rounds of 9 holes each to be played over 2 days, Nigel Fernando on 40 strokes has a slender lead of 1 stroke over Levon Niyarapola on 41 with K. Danushan 45, Tienn Kapilasena 46 and Tanish Samarawickrama 49 being the possible challengers for the Bronze Title.
Playing conditions at the Royal Colombo Golf Club were tough due to persistant rains making the course play long but hopefully the course will dry out and play easier to see better scores over the next 2 days.
