KINGSCLIFF golfer Jake Younan-Wise stamped himself as a star of the future with a 7-shot win in the Coolangatta Tweed Golf Club 2004 Club Championship.

Younan-Wise wrapped up the title after a second round display of controlled power golf at the Coolangatta Tweed course.

The young scratch player held an 8-under par, eight-shot lead at the halfway mark of the tournament over reigning champion Tony Wolsey after carding two rounds of 68.

Two second round scores of 70 gave him a total of 276 for the championship, seven clear of Wolsey who came back from 75 and 70 in the first round to card scores of 68 and 70 last weekend for a total of 283.

Despite pegging back two shots, the experienced Wolsey couldn't catch the young leader who held his nerve through to the last hole to win the title.

Assistant pro Gary Davis said Jake had the ability to hit the ball a long way for someone who wasn't a "huge bloke".
