Perfect weekend at Harmony Landing
In her first start in 3 years on the GolfWeek Jr Tour, Shannon Kennedy claimed the overall girls title going away. Posting 7 birdies and an eagle over the two rounds, the Michigan State commit would claim the overall title by 11 strokes. She would card a 32 on her first nine holes and finish with a 34 on the final nine, and will go down as one of the lowest total scores for the girls this year on the GolfWeek Jr Tour.
In the opening round, Oakley Gee would claim medalist honors with the second lowest round in GolfWeek history, a 31-32 - 63. He would take the lead by an incredible 5 strokes in round 1 and looked to be unstoppable after starting round two with an even par 35.
Tyler Sabo, however, kept inching closer as the day went on with a 32 on the outward nine, and then backed it up with 4 birdies on the back nine. His 65 included 7 birdies and no bogies, his first bogey free round. Tyler would claim the overall Boys title with a 9 under par total of 135.
Mitchell Strickland would close out his second round with a birdie for a 1 under par round of 71and win the Boys 14-15 title by 6 strokes in his first win on the GolfWeek Jr Tour. His second round would include an impressive 6 birdies as the Ann Arbor native distanced himself from the competition. This also moves Mitchell into 5th in the Player of the Year race.
It took a playoff for Michael Stagnaro to win his first title on the GolfWeek Jr Tour. Michael would finish with a birdie on his last hole of regulation play to tie Mattingly Upchurch and force a playoff. Heading to #10, a par 5, for the playoff, Michael would hit two excellent shots to 12-15ft. He would go on to make the eagle putt and win the Boys 13 & Under title in a week where he posted 5 birdies and the eagle in the playoff.
In her first start on the GolfWeek Jr Tour, Lexi Ray would claim the victory in the Girls 14 & Under division and hold off Bella Saur, the first round leader. In the final round, Lexi would take over the lead after their first nine holes, and was able to hold on to the lead through the finish for a 2 stroke victory.
