INGHAM VICTORIOUS IN PLAYOFF AT JUNIOR ALL-STAR AT ASPEN
Alonso tops Girls Division winning by 10 strokes at Aspen Golf Club

ASPEN, Colo. — Christopher Ingham of Pinecrest, Fla., defeated Wyndham Clark of Greenwood Village, Colo., in the second hole of a sudden-death playoff to win the Junior All-Star at Aspen. The two were tied at a tournament total even-par 216 after Thursday's final round. Regina Alonso of Huixquilucan, Mexico, posted a 13-over-par 229 to take the title in the Girls Division.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Junior All-Star at Aspen was a 54-hole stroke play event held at Aspen Golf Club. The tournament field consisted of 57 boys and 17 girls, ages 12 to 15, from 15 states, Canada and Mexico. The Boys Division played the par-72 course at 6,836 yards, while the Girls Division played the course at 6,042 yards.

Ingham came into Thursday's round tied for third and was the only player to shoot under-par during the final-round's difficult weather conditions. His straight shots and four birdies on the day helped him reach the top of the leaderboard.

“Right from the start I knew it was going to be a tough, grinding day,” Ingham said. “I bogeyed the second hole but I knew everyone else was going high and I just had to hang in there. I birdied No. 5 and 7 and knew I was in the thick of things.”

Last weekend Ingham defeated Clark in the Future Collegians World Tour National Championship which helped him prepare for this tournament.

“I gained all the confidence back that I lost last season,” Ingham said. “I felt like an elite player again and I could beat anyone, anywhere. I expected to win this tournament all along.”

Clark, who led after the first and second round, finished second. In third was Charlie Saxon of Tulsa, Okla., at 3-over-par 219, followed by Clancy Waugh of North Palm Beach, Fla., in fourth at 7-over-par 223. Michael Schoolcraft of Englewood, Colo., and Bennett Lavin of Deerfield, Ill., tied for fifth, both at 9-over-par 225.

In the Girls Division, Alonso led all three rounds and posted a final-round 10-over-par 82. While the weather affected her during the day, she still finished 10 strokes ahead of the rest of the field.

“My hands were frozen and I could hardly hit the ball,” Alonso said. “Mexico hardly gets this weather and it was hard to decide what club to hit. I just tried to adapt.”

Michelle Butler of Dunedin, Fla., finished second with a tournament total 23-over-par 239. Michele Chun of Chino Hills, Calif., and Catherine Herrera of Houston tied for third at 27-over-par 243 respectively.
