Junior Round-up

The East won the first-ever Mountain Matches against the West, 11.5-8.5. The boys-only match play tournament was the brainchild of 2006 Rolex Junior Player of the Year Philip Francis, who conducted the event.

College Round-up


Matthew Swan helped Alabama to a win in Florida.

Alabama won the John Hayt Collegiate Invitational on Feb. 20 at Sawgrass Country Club in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. The Crimson Tide was lead by Gator Todd's 1-over-par 217 and Matthew Swan's 5-over-par 221. Kevin Chappell of UCLA won the individual title with rounds of 72-73-69 for a tournament total 2-under-par 214.

Auburn won the Cocoa Beach Lady Puerto Rico Classic at Cocoa Beach Country Club in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico, on Feb. 25. Jenny Suh of Alabama won the individual title with a 1-over-par 217. Four others were tied at 217, but due to flights, no playoff occurred and Suh was awarded first-place because of her low final round score, a 1-under-par 71.
