In a tournament in which no player defended the title, the National Youth Championship was filled, this year, with news and new champions.

The girls' competition, on the other hand, may have presented some surprise, since Leonor Medeiros, champion for a year of under-16, was not able to confirm his theoretical favoritism. After starting at the front, the young woman from Quinta do Peru was overcome in the second round by Ivete Rodrigues, who never left the command and, after signing the best display of the day, ended up lifting the trophy with a total of 233 shots (81 + 75 + 77). The title of runner-up was given to Leonor Medeiros (79 + 77 + 80) and Rita Costa Marques finished in third place (83 + 78 + 79).

Among the under-16s, Alberto Costa Marques (Oporto GC) left no credit for the hands of others and, at the last opportunity, managed to have his best performance of the tournament, overtaking club colleague Pedro Afonso Freitas, leader since the first round.

In the women's under-16 event, Sofia Barroso Sá, in turn, did not compromise her aspirations to become national champion, after being runner-up in 2019, just behind Leonor Medeiros. The young player of the Quinta do Lago Association, leader since the first day, starred today in her best performance at Estela Golf Club and, with a total of 231 strokes (75 + 82 + 74), relegated Ana da Costa Rodrigues (CG Miramar) for the second position (84 + 75 + 79) and Constança Mendonça (Orizonte) for the third position, with rounds of 86 + 85 + 83.

In the men's under-14 division, Konstantin Mikirtumov (CG Estoril) surprised the competition and, thanks to a final lap of 79 strokes, to join the 81 of the first and 80 of the second, he became national champion with four shots ahead Diogo Silva Pinto Rocha, of CG Miramar (75 + 89 + 80), and six against Afonso Mendes (Juvegolfe), with 246 strokes (77 + 85 + 84).

Like Alentejo Mikirtumov, Francisca Rocha managed to surprise the main rival, Inês Belchior, who had commanded the women's under-14 event since the inaugural round.
