Defending Champions at Darby Creek

The last time Mia Hammond played on the GolfWeek Jr Tour she won at Darby Creek in October of 2021. This time in a larger field she took home the title again. Her first round 74 put her 1 stroke behind Jenna Shilts and McKenzie Miller, but it was her second round 71 that opened with a 35 and, finished 2 under in the final 7 holes that allowed her to jump in front of the field. Mia would birdie her final hole to post a 145 total and win the event by 1 stroke over McKenzie Miller.

It was last year at Darby Creek where Tyler Sabo would win by posting a final round 63 to take home the title by an amazing 7 strokes over second place. This year he started in similar fashion with a blazing hot first round of 66 that included an eagle on the fourth hole and 5 other birdies. Heading into Sunday he would play solid golf with 3 birdies and 3 bogies to hold off Leo Walling by just 1 stroke who posted a 69 and recorded the most birdies for the weekend with 10.

Jackson Harris took home his second win this season with a dominate 68-71 139 total and 8 stroke victory in the Boys 14-15 division. Jackson's two round total only put him 1 stroke away from a playoff with overall winner Tyler Sabo, and gave him a second place finish out of all 93 boys that teed it up in the 14-19 divisions. For the entire weekend Jackson would not post anything worse than a bogey and only recorded 2 bogies the entire tournament.

Brigid Nickell took home her third win on the GolfWeek Jr Tour this weekend by posting the low round Saturday and Sunday with a 79-74 153 total. Her Sunday round which included 1 birdie and just 3 bogies was enough to hold off Maureen O'Leary who posted a 75 on her way to finish 3 strokes behind Brigid.

Alex Holder took home the victory at Darby Creek in what was the largest and strongest Boys 13 & Under division of the regular season. Over the two rounds he would dominate the field by posting a 68-67 to overtake first round leader Brady Barnum and win the division by 6 strokes. Along the way he would record 8 birdies and an eagle and would play his final 6 holes in a blazing 4 under par.
