2023 Gigantic Jr.
Players are heating up as the 2023 season reaches the halfway point at Bunker Hill for the Gigantic Jr. The competition is getting tighter and the players are battling hole by hole to take home the big plaque at each tournament and the even bigger one at the end of the year.
In the boys 16-17 division, Jaydon Nabb fired a 73 to take first place. “I had a lot of greens in regulation, which gave me some good looks at birdie, but also helped me make a lot of easy pars.” Quinn McGeough shot an 85 to finish in second place and Charlie Kamentz shot an 87 for third place.
In the girls 16-17 division, Brooke Kelsch shot a 101 to win the division. “The best part of my game was my drives.”
For the boys 14-15 division, Connor Walsh took first place with a 77. “My thought process was to just stay focused. When I hit a bad shot, I was focusing on the next one. I made some crucial putts down the stretch that helped me finish strong.” Cole Herbst followed close behind in second place with a 78 and Brady Schlemme shot an 80 to take third place.
For the girls 14-15 division, Brooklyn Bussan won with an 84. “I bounced back well. Whenever I had a bad shot, my next shot was always better.” Lynell Miller finished in second place with a score of 93.
Reid Herrig took the win in the boys 12-13 division with a score of 40. “A good part of my game was that I hit my wedges well and was able to sink some putts.” Cooper Smith followed in second place with a 45 and Alex Tanny shot a 56 for a third place finish.
In the boys 10-11 division Michael Hamiltion won with a 42. “I hit my drives really well and with my short game I focused on making a chip and two putting..” Beau Reed took second place with a 44 and Greyson Haddox and Jack Ludovissy both shot a 49. Haddox won the cardback playoff to take the third place plaque.
