Great weekend in Lexington
In his first win on the GolfWeek Jr Tour, Ryan Walsh carded two rounds of 3 under par 69 for a 6 under par total. Ryan would card the most birdies of any player this weekend at UK Club with 12, and not make a any double bogies. This marks Ryan's 4th event on the GolfWeek Jr Tour, and is one of the biggest fields all year for the Boys 14-19 divisions. He would also hold off University of Kentucky commit, Oakley Gee by just 1 stroke, and did so by playing the last 3 holes in 1 under par with a critical birdie on the 35th hole of the tournament.
Brooklyn Millard took home her second win on the GolfWeek Jr Tour this season, with rounds of 72-73, for a 2 stroke victory over Hall of Famer, Macie Brown. On a difficult course, Brooklyn would never card worse than a bogey and would tie Jenna Shilts for the most birdies of the weekend at 6. Brooklyn's steady play and even par final nine was enough to hold of a charging Macie Brown, who carded a 34 on her final nine. This win vaults Brooklyn into 3rd place in the Player of the Year race.
In his third season on tour, Benjamin Davenport took home his first win with a 72-73 performance. After starting the final day 2 over par on the front nine, he would come back and play his back nine in 1 under par. It was enough to hold off Grant Broughton who carded a 34 on his final nine and made an impressive charge, but would ultimately fall just 2 strokes short of Benjamin's 36 hole total.
Skylar Dean took home her second win in just 3 starts this season with a solid two round performance of 75-76. Her two rounds included 3 birdies and an eagle on the par five 7th hole in the final round. Her Sunday round of 76 would take home medalist honors by two strokes, and would help her claim the victory by 7 strokes over first round leader Meadow Tian.
In his first start on the GolfWeek Jr Tour, Brody Alexander would take home the victory over an impressive field of Boys 13 Under at Kearney Hill. His back nine score of 33 on Saturday, would propel him to a tie for medalist honors for day 1, and his solid 74 on Sunday was enough to claim victory by just 1 stroke over Will Judd who took home medalist honors on Sunday with a round of 71.
