Windy Sunday in Lexington
In one of the biggest fields of the year, Joe Wilson IV took home his first title of the 2020-2021 season on a windy and difficult Sunday in Lexington, KY. Joe carded 11 birdies for the weekend, more than any other player in the field, and capped off the event with a 25 foot birdie putt on the final hole. This is Joe's 6th win on the GolfWeek Jr Tour in his 8 year career on tour and vaults him to 14 in the Player of the Year race.
Christina Pfefferkorn took home her 7th career victory on the GolfWeek Jr Tour this weekend in one of the most difficult Sunday weather conditions we have seen this year. Her first round 74 left her 3 off the pace set by Lizzie Saur, but it was Sunday that would determine the event. Christina would card the best front nine on Sunday with an even par 36 which would include a birdie and a bogey. She would eventually settle for a Sunday round 80 to take home the Girls title by 2 strokes.
Drew Miller's win at Cherry Blossom this weekend puts him on top of the Player of the Year race with 430 points and marks his 3rd win of the 2020-2021 season. His weekend included 8 birdies and he would record the low round on both Saturday and Sunday in his division. This marks his 7th victory on the GolfWeek Jr Tour across 3 years.
Madison Glisson took home her first win on the GolfWeek Jr Tour his weekend after carding the low first round on Saturday with a 75 that included a birdie and 14 pars. Her 3 stroke victory was possible due to a solid back nine 39 on Sunday that separated the field due to the high winds a water hazards. She made it through the back nine with 2 birdies on her way to a final round 81.
Weston Miller continues his undefeated career on the GolfWeek Jr Tour with his second win in two starts. His first round 68 included 6 birdies and vault him to a 4 stroke lead. He would continue his solid play with an impressive even par 36 on the back nine Sunday in high winds. Ryan Parker tried to make things interesting after the turn with a closing 34 to pull within 4 strokes of Weston, but Weston's dominate lead was too much to overcome.
