Sabo on Sunday
Tyler Sabo tied for the second lowest round ever in GolfWeek Jr Tour history with a Sunday, nine under par, 63. This also broke his previous low round on tour, a 65 last fall at Harmony Landing, by 2 strokes. Tyler's weekend rounds of 70-63 was enough to take home the Boys 16-19 title and overall title by 7 strokes and add to the Hall of Famer's resume. Tyler's break away moment was on the 10th hole when he drove the downwind 335 yard par four with a 3 wood. He would then walk in the 20 footer for eagle and go on to shoot 31 on the back nine. This win also secures a sizable lead for Tyler in the Player of the Year race.
Elizabeth Eberle is undefeated on Darby Creek golf course with another win this year after her awesome win last Summer where she posted scores of 67-69. This year the course played much tougher with firm and fast greens and her 73-77 was good enough to take home the title by 3 strokes over Katelyn Kuc and Julia Rabadam. It was Elizabeth's first round that distanced her from the competition where 3 birdies and 4 bogies would give her a 3 stroke lead going into the final round. She would hold off the competition posting 13 pars for the round and remaining steady all day.
In his first start on the GolfWeek Jr Tour, Dylan Cullman claimed victory with a 3 stroke margin in the Boys 14-15 division. His solid play for the weekend saw 5 birdies and 5 bogies, for an even par 144 total. His Sunday finish saw a 1 under par 35 on his last nine holes to cap off the victory and hold off Brady Catalano and Leo Walling.
In what is becoming a routine performance this Spring, Elizabeth Ryu won her third tournament in a row and 4th of the Spring. Ellie has distanced herself from the competition in the Player of the Year race with her 5 victories this season and her 2 under par 70 on Saturday at Darby Creek will go down as one of the best performances of the year in the Girls 14 & Under division. Ellie's 8 birdies for the weekend displayed the fire power that set her apart by 5 strokes from second place Kristina Ma at 149.
First round medalist, Alex Holder, was able to hold on Sunday and grab his first career victory on the GolfWeek Jr Tour. He was able to hold off a charging Brayden Miller and Brady Barnum with solid play on the front nine with nine pars. The back nine was a different story, though, where Alex would card 4 birdies, 4 bogeys, and just 1 par. His 1 under par total of 143 secured his victory by 3 strokes in one of the best fields of the year so far.
