2016 Australian Junior Championship is coming to its conclusion, with only the final match left to be played. In it, the 4th seed Kody Pearson will battle against Scott Jones, after they both scored easy wins in the semi-final. Besides the prestige title, the winner will have a chance to compete at next week's Australian Open 2017 Play-off, and maybe earn a place in the Australian Open main draw.
