Phillips Goes Low to Clinch Title
Cameron Phillips racked up 10 birdies and an eagle over two days at Guyan Golf and Country Club to record his sixth career Golfweek Junior Tour victory. Cameron posted a first round 68 that had him sitting two back of the leader. But a second round 66 on Tuesday vaulted him to the top of the leaderboard. His 8 under 134 total is a career record and one of the lowest marks in GJT history. Jack Michael finished the tournament in second place after rounds of 67-68 for a 135 total. Benjamin Bridges (70-69) and Liam Curtis (66-73) tied for third place at 139.
Alex White shot 74-77 in the Boys 14-15 division to capture the win on Tuesday afternoon. When Alex arrived on the 10th tee on Tuesday, he found himself two shots back of the leader with only nine holes to play. He then played steady golf on the back nine and recorded a 38. That was just enough as Alex squeaked out a one stroke victory. He shot a 151 total over the two day tournament at Guyan. Charlie Straubel posted two 76s for a 152 total which earned him second place. Cole Eger shot 77-77 for a 154 total and third place.
Gracey Kelly put up rounds of 78-77 to help her on her way to her third career Golfweek Junior Tour win. Gracey's first round 78 put her in the lead by two strokes. Her second round 77 tied her GJT career low and ended up giving her a seven stroke margin of victory. Lauren Miller shot 80-82 to finish the tournament in second place at 162.
