Golf: Toronto's Jacob Dundas gets nod for NSW junior development squad

MARK Ingrey reckons recently selected state junior golf squad member Jacob Dundas will simply take it all in his stride because "nothing really fazes him out there".

The Toronto 15-year-old is one of eight development players in the NSW team for the 2019 Australian Junior Interstate Series on the Gold Coast next month.

It will be Dundas' first look at the national tournament.

"That's the great thing about him [Dundas], he's just so relaxed on the golf course," Ingrey, Jack Newton Junior Golf's Northern NSW manager, said.

"You can't really tell if he's having a good or a bad day. Nothing really fazes him out there."

Dundas, who represented Toronto in the Newcastle district A-grade pennants final earlier this month, won't feature on the Southport course between April 10 and 12 but will travel with the main group and receive a NSW uniform.

"It's all about the experience, the development and the learning," Ingrey said.

"It was a great acknowledgement of great tournament results for him over the last little while, but where he really came to attention was the NSW Amateur at Mona Vale and Terrey Hills.

"He was tied 22nd after the stroke play and made the first round of match play, which was a massive effort."

Branxton's Corey Lamb and Newcastle's Josh Robards will both debut for NSW at the event.
