Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Junior All-Star Presented by CBIZ MHM was a 54-hole stroke play event held at River Ridge Golf Club on the Victoria Lakes Course. The tournament field featured 75 boys and 21 girls, ages 12-15, from 11 states,
Argentina, Mexico, Canada and Thailand. The Boys Division played the par-72 course at 6,831 yards, while the Girls Division played at 5,909 yards.

The series concludes with the Montverde Junior All-Star Invitational over Columbus Day weekend for winners and top finishers in the Gary Gilchrist Golf Academy Junior All-Star Series events.


Lim started the round off slow with a bogey on No. 1 and a double bogey on No. 2, which put him in a tie with Andrew Levitt of
Laguna Niguel, Calif. Lim kept his cool and rebounded on No. 3 with a birdie, where he regained the lead.


“I was more nervous today going into the round,” Lim said. “The wait on No. 3 got me time to step back and calm down a bit and that’s when I started to play my game.”


Coming in second after posting a 2-under-par 70, the low final-round for the Boys Division, was Jonathan Sanders of Chatsworth,
Calif., who finished with a 2-under-par 214. Levitt finished third after posting a three-day total of 1-over-par 217. Troix Tonkham of Arleta, Calif., Xander Schauffele of San Diego and Brandon Roberts of Clayton, Calif., tied for fourth after each finished with three-day totals of 6-over-par 222.


In the Girls Division, Diaz-Yi played a nearly flawless front nine recording two birdies against one bogey to finish at 1-under-par 35. She struggled a bit on the back nine, but managed to keep her head in the game, finishing three strokes ahead of Bethany Wu of
Diamond Bar, Calif.


“I wanted to play safe on No. 18 because I knew that
Bethany was right there with me.” Diaz-Yi said. “I tried not to think about the score and just have a positive attitude.”


Wu came in second after posting a three-day total of 8-over-par 224. Rounding out the top-3 was Katherine Guo of
Arcadia, Calif., who finished with a three-day total of 15-over-par 231.
