Newlin beats field by five strokes to medal in Girls Division

HORSESHOE BAY, Texas â€” Dylan Healey of Franklin, Tenn, posted a 6-over-par 77 in windy conditions winning medalist honors at Horseshoe Bay Resort â€” Ram Rock Course Sunday. Taylor Newlin of Frisco, Texas, carded a 12-over-par 83 to claim the top spot in the Girls Division.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Stars of Texas Junior Presented by Horseshoe Bay Resort Qualifier was an 18-hole stroke play event held at the Horseshoe Bay Resort â€” Ram Rock Course. The 94-player field featured players from 11 states and China. The Boys Division played the par-71 course at 6,610 yards while the Girls Division played at 5,894 yards.

Healey started his round strong with a birdie on his third hole of the day. With winds reaching 20-25 mph, Healey was thankful to not make any costly mistakes.

“I fought my way through some tough spots,” Healey said. “I played pretty steady golf. That's what you have to do in the wind.”

Healey chose to accept one tournament exemption in lieu of playing in this week's tournament.
