HARGRAY JUNIOR CLASSIC
Hampton Hall Club
Bluffton, S.C. • June 20 - 23
 

COLE SEALS WIN WITH BIRDIE ON LAST HOLE
White cards even par to win the Girls Division

BLUFFTON, S.C. — Spencer Cole of Greer, S.C., fired a 3-under-par 69 to win the Hargray Junior Classic by one stroke Friday. Dolores White of Lakeland, Fla., reclaimed her first-round lead to capture the Girls Division by one stroke with even-par 72-72-72-216.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Hargray Junior Classic was a 54-hole stroke-play competition that featured 84 boys and girls from 14 states and 2 foreign countries. The event was held at Hampton Hall Club in Bluffton, S.C.

In the Boys Division, Cole said making short putts was the deciding factor in his play today.

“I made so many four-footers,” Cole said, who normally struggles with his short-putting game.

As for long putts, Cole's goal was just to get it near to the flagstick.

“I was just trying to get it close instead of being aggressive,” Cole said.

After the second round, the scoreboard was jam packed with juniors in contention to take home the trophy. Cole was surprised he even had a chance to claim the top spot.

“I thought if I shot 65 in the final round I might have a chance to win,” Cole said, who carded 70-71-69-210 for the tournament. “I just figured I was playing for third place.”

David Dannelly of Easley, S.C., and Drew Ernst of Seneca, S.C., tied for second with 5-under-par tournament total 211s. Tied for fourth were Tripp Mcallister of Lake City, S.C., and Michael Muscatell of Lake Wylie, S.C., with tournament total 212s.

In the Girls Division, White concluded her third day of even-par play with 12 pars, three birdies and three bogeys. White hit 16 greens in regulation on the day and took advantage of her strong iron game.

“I knew if I played steady golf today, like I have been all week, it would put pressure on the competition,” White said, whose win at the Hargray Junior Classic was her fourth AJGA victory.

White used a disappointing bogey on the par-3 fourteenth hole as motivation.

“I had just bogeyed No. 14, so I walked up to my next drive and hit it as hard as I could,” White said. “I hit the green in two and birdied it, which was obviously a turning point.”

Second in the Girls Division went to Brooke Pancake of Chattanooga, Tenn., with a tournament total 217 and Kiara Hayashida of Hilton Head Island, S.C., fired a 73-74-72-219 in her first-ever AJGA event to take home third.

Hargray Communications Group, a leader in the telecommunications business, was title sponsor of the Hargray Junior Classic for the 12th year. Hargray is actively involved in supporting a variety of sporting events on Hilton Head Island.
