Jack Bergin was recently confirmed as the 2020 junior match play champion at The Heath Golf Club.

The competition began last year but was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Golf was shutdown for five months with competition only permitted for the last month.

The 2020 junior match play attracted 16 entrants and Portlaoise native Jack defeated Ryan Conlon in the final.

Jack has been a Junior member since 2015 and has participated in the Junior Development Programme.

He received some coaching from Club PGA Pro, Mark O’Boyle, and is now playing off a 14 handicap.

He had a notable score as a Junior in the President’s Prize last year with a score equal to the winner’s. He also won the weekly V-Par competition recently.

Jack comes from a very strong golf family, with both parents and his sister playing regularly and featuring in competitions.

Congratulations Jack!
