Less than two weeks after the best amateur players in the area took on “Muny” for the 72nd annual Firecracker Open, some of the area’s top juniors got their chance to do so in the Ben Crenshaw Junior.
The highlight of the day on Wednesday at Lions Municipal Golf Course was Andrew Tan, who fired an impressive 5-over 76 to win the boys’ 13-15 division by four shots. Tan was the only one in the flight to break 80, and he made his lone birdie of the day at the par-4 10th.
Trent Mierl, who placed first at the Felix George Junior in June, claimed another first-place finish for the summer after posting a 1-over 37 for nine holes on Wednesday to win the boys’ 11-12 flight by four strokes.
Westlake High School’s Jack Evans posted an 86 to take first in the boys’ 16-18 division by two shots. It was Evans’ second first-place finish of the summer. He won the Joe Balander Junior in June.
Mary Grace Davidson impressed with an 8-over 79 to claim first in the girls’ 16-18 division. She carded an eagle at the par-5 eighth and a birdie at the par-4 18th.
