ASHWORTH JUNIOR AT DIABLO GRANDE
Diablo Grande Golf & Country Club - Ranch Course
Diablo Grande, Calif. • March 18 - 20
 

GOULDING HOLDS ON TO CLAIM MEDALIST HONORS AT DIABLO GRANDE
Tracy, Calif., native finishes strong to earn one-shot victory

DIABLO GRANDE, Calif. — The heavy rain and howling wind that plagued Diablo Grande Saturday was virtually a non-factor Sunday as Logan Goulding of Tracy, Calif., held on for a one-shot victory after carding a 4-over-par 76 on the Ranch Course.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Ashworth Junior at Diablo Grande was played at Diablo Grande — Ranch Course. The tournament featured 81 boys, ages 12-18, from 10 states. Fifty-four players from the state of California were entered in the tournament field, as well as five juniors from Canada.

Goulding started his round on a sour note with a three-putt bogey on the par-4 first hole, but recovered nicely on the very next hole with a birdie. The 17-year-old would birdie one more hole on the front nine, No. 5, to finish with a 1-over-par 37.

Goulding ran into some difficulties on the back nine with four consecutive bogeys on Nos. 11 through 14. However, his momentum shifted with one swing of the club

“My drive on No. 15 was absolutely perfect,” Goulding said. “That really helped me turn it around.”

Goulding would make par on the final four holes to finish with a 5-over-par 149 for the tournament, edging Ryan Thomas of Alameda, Calif., who fired a 1-over-par 73 in Sunday's final round.

“It feels good to get a victory at an AJGA event,” Goulding said. “Hopefully, I'll get to play in some more tournaments and get even more exposure.”

Connor Driscoll of Encinitas, Calif., finished in third place, three shots behind Goulding with a 8-over-par 152 tournament total. California natives Tyler Morris, also of Encinitas, Greg Palm of Orinda, and Ryan Hallisey of Granite Bay, finished in a tie for fourth place with matching tournament totals of 153.
