Dahlem and Brown victorious on windy Sunday
In his first win on the GolfWeek Jr Tour, Charlie Dahlem earned medalist honors in round 1 with a 2 under par, 70. His round was solid all day with 3 birdies and just 1 bogey. Day two at Bowling Green CC offered up vastly different playing conditions, though, with a consistent 20 mph wind with gusts reaching 40+ mph. Charlie's round started off to a shaky start with 5 over in the first 10 holes in round two, but he was able to turn it around with birdies on 14 and 15. His two round total of 146 was enough to win by 3 strokes in the Boys 16-19 division and claim the overall Boys 14-19 title.
Jumping out to a quick start on Saturday, Macie Brown's first round, 72, included 3 birdies and 3 bogies. On an incredibly windy Sunday, she would extend her lead by even more by having the low round of the day again, with a 75. This is her 2nd win in just 3 starts this season and propels her into 2nd place in the Player of the Year race.
Keira Yun was tied with Reagan Ramage going into the last hole at Bowling Green CC on Sunday. After being the first round medalist with a 76, Keira would start the losing ground slowly to Reagan who posted a 39 on the front nine, carded a birdie and two bogies on the back nine heading into #18. A birdie on the last hole by Keira was needed to secure the win, though, and is her second win in 3 starts this season on the GolfWeek Jr Tour.
Fresh off his win last week at Harmony Landing, Mitchell Strickland continued his momentum with a first round 75 and medalist honors. He would end round 1 with an eagle on the par 5, 18th hole, which would give him momentum heading into the second round. Round two came with difficult playing conditions and wind, and his 81 would actually take the second low round of the day. This is Mitchell's second win this season on the GolfWeek Jr Tour and will move him into 3rd place in the Player of the Year race.
Jack Michael's second start on the GolfWeek Jr Tour would give him his first win with two solid rounds of 80-82. After claiming medalist honors in round 1, Jack would claim the low round again on Sunday and extend his winning margin.
