LEVITT LEAVES BOYS DIVISION IN THE DUST TO CLAIM BACK-TO-BACK AJGA VICTORIES
Spiranic closes book on field to claim first AJGA victory at The Reserve at Spanos Park

STOCKTON, Calif. — Andrew Levitt of Laguna Niguel, Calif., posted a 1-under-par 71 to finish at 5-under-par 211, Thursday, to claim back-to-back AJGA victories at the Stockton Sports Commission Junior Classic. In the Girls Division, Paige Spiranac of Monument, Colo., claimed her first AJGA victory after firing a final-round even-par 72 to finish at 1-over-par 217.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Stockton Sports Commission Junior Classic was a 54-hole stroke play event held at The Reserve at Spanos Park. The tournament field featured 72 boys and 27 girls, ages 12-18, from five states, Mexico, China, Japan and Canada. The Boys Division played the par-72 course from 7,039 yards, while the Girls Division played at 6,246 yards.

Levitt began his final round hot making birdies on three of the first four holes but struggled on the back nine making bogeys on Nos. 12, 13, 14, and 15. After missing an up and down on No. 15, Levitt had to clear his head and finished strong going 1-under-par on the final three holes.

“I had to literally step away from the course and just chill out,” Levitt said. “I hit it to the back of No. 16 green and my eagle chip just lipped out and I made birdie.”

Tomohiro Umeyama of Mooka-City, Japan, came in second finishing with a three-day total of 2-under-par 214. Robert Jacobsen of Racine, Wis., and Ryann Ree of Redondo Beach, Calif., each finished at 1-under-par 215. Rounding out the top five, finishing with 1-over-par 217's were Charlie Benell of Pacific Palisades, Calif., Peter Gullickson of Spokane, Wash., and Jae Kang of Irvine, Calif.

In the Girls Division, Spiranac continued her steady play recording four birdies and four bogeys on the day. Three of her birdies came on par-5's which helped her to remain calm for the more challenging holes.

“I played the par-5's well,” Spiranac said. “It helped me stay relaxed going into harder holes especially Nos. 17 and 18.”

Seo Hee Moon of Mukilteo, Wash., finished second with a three-day total 6-over-par 222. In a tie for third at 8-over-par 224 were Erynne Lee of Silverdale, Wash., and Casie Cathrea of Livermore, Calif.
