HEATED PLAYOFF LEAVES WOLTMAN WINNER IN FOOTJOY BOYS INVITATIONAL
Three-round leader, Galletti, Jr., misses three-foot putt to clinch victory

GREENSBORO, N.C. β€” Daniel Woltman of Beaver Dam, Wis., won his first American Junior Golf Association Invitational in a sudden-death playoff against Roberto Galletti, Jr. of Clayton, Calif. Woltman and Galletti, Jr. finished the FootJoy Boys Invitational with scores of 10-under-par 278.

With a one-stroke lead heading into No. 18, Galletti, Jr. hit his approach shot barely left of the green leaving him in position to two-putt for the win. Woltman finished with par, and prepared to congratulate Galletti, Jr. However, Galletti, Jr. missed the three-foot putt for par to win sending the two back to No. 18 tee for the sudden-death playoff tied at 10-under-par.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the FootJoy Boys Invitational was held at Forest Oaks Country Club, home to the PGA TOUR's Chrysler Classic of Greensboro. For the championship, the course played to 7,258 yards, just 53 yards less than the PGA TOUR distance. Ninety-nine junior golfers from 23 states and three countries, including China, Peru and Australia, competed in the 72-hole event. Thirty-nine Rolex Junior All-Americans were in the field.

In the playoff, Woltman hit his approach shot 25 feet from the hole in nearly the exact place Galletti, Jr. had his chance to win from during regulation. He two-putted for par while Galletti, Jr. hit into the left bunker off the tee leading to a bogey.

β€œI paid attention to his first putt,” Woltman said. β€œIt just played out perfectly.”

Though Galletti, Jr. led for most of the tournament, the two were tied for the lead at 10-under-par going into the final round.

The momentum shifted in Woltman's favor on No. 15 when he walked in a 35-foot putt from the fringe for eagle. Galletti, Jr.'s bogey caused a three-shot swing to tie them at 11-under-par.

β€œWe fought back and forth all day,” Woltman said. β€œI'm just happy to be standing here right now, holding the trophy.”

Brian Locke of Los Angeles, Calif., tied for third with Jordan Cox of Redwood City, Calif., with 8-under-par 280s. Rory Hie of Lakewood, Calif., and Drew Younts of Stokesdale, N.C., tied for fifth with a four-round score of 7-under-par 281. Tying for seventh place were Robert Streb of Edmond, Okla., and David Yujin Chung of Fayetteville, N.C., with 6-under-par 282s. Drew Kittleson of Scottsdale, Ariz., Mu Hu of Shen Zhen, China, and Lion Kim of Lake Mary, Fla., finished tied for ninth with 5-under-par 283s.
