The first round of the Touchdown Helicopters Junior Opens Series saw forty two players tee it up at Moss Vale Golf Club on Sunday April 8. There were 24 players in the stroke with seven on a handicap of five or less and 18 in the stableford which was a promising start considering the event was cancelled due to lack of starters when previously scheduled.
