THREE of Ipswich's finest young golfers braved the heat yesterday competing at the Hills Australia Junior Golf Championship.

Michael Madden, Myles Gillin and Alex Thompson played through nearly 40C temperatures on the second day of the inaugural tournament yesterday.

Augustine Heights golfer Thompson said the day had been a tough one for many of the young golfers on the course.

"I didn't go as well today as I did yesterday," he said.

"It was a bit of an average day for me, but it's a tough course and tough competition."

Brookwater Golf and Country Club general manager Warren Seeto said the local competitors had been playing well.

"A few of the golfers today have come off the course with their heads hung low today, a bit disappointed by their results, but it's tough conditions out there," he said.

"Michael (Madden) definitely is still in with a shot at winning the whole thing."

Fifteen-year-old Madden has a strong track record at Brookwater, after finishing as the runner-up in the Brookwater Club Championship against adults.
