COOK FIRES 5-UNDER-PAR 67 TO MEDAL AT THE PLANTATION GOLF CLUB
Ashburn takes medalist honors in Girls Division at 2-over-par 74

 

OLIVE BRANCH, Miss. - Austin Cook of Jonesboro, Ark., shot a round of 5-under-par 67 on Sunday to claim medalist honors at the AJGA Qualifier for the Stanford Financial Junior Championship hosted by David Gossett.  The Girls Division medal was won by Ryan Ashburn of Seminole, Fla., with a round of 2-over-par 74.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the AJGA Qualifier for the Stanford Financial Junior Championship hosted by David Gossett was an 18-hole stroke play event being held at The Plantation Golf Club. The field consisted of 78 boys and 12 girls, ages 12-18, from 17 states and Indonesia. The Boys Division played the par-72 course at 6,655 yards, while the Girls Division played at 5,911 yards.

Cook’s round featured seven birdies and two bogeys.  Four of his birdies came consecutively during his first nine holes of the day.

“I got off to a great start early in my round,” Cook said.  “I sort of slacked off in the middle of the round but I finished strong.”

Qualifying for the tournament were Cook, Nathan Kerns of Ironton, Ohio, Ryan DuLaney of Memphis, Tenn., Josh Alford of Marion, Ark., Leland Dunning of Gautier, Miss., Neal Quirk of Atlanta, Ga., Bradley McCreery of Germantown, Tenn., Michael Wallace of Murfreesboro, Tenn., Zachary Olsen of Cordova, Tenn., Bobby Rohrlack of Orlando, Fla., Doug Rees of West Chester, Ohio, Cory Gaylord of Collierville, Tenn., and Eric Smith of Washington, Okla.

Also qualifying but opting to take a Tournament Exemption were Fletcher Johnson of Belden, Miss., Hunter Stewart of Nicholasville, Ky., Nathaniel Johnson of Nicholasville, Ky., Jay Pinkos of Clifton, Va., and Tanner Werner of Jackson, Mo.

Ashburn, who opted to take a Tournament Exemption, was very steady throughout her round, making 13 pars on the day.  She said that solid play around the greens made up for less than perfect ball-striking during Sunday’s round.

“I didn’t do a great job hitting greens,” Ashburn said.  “But I made a lot of putts and got up and down a lot which saved me.”

Qualifying for the tournament were Natalie Mitchell of Germantown, Tenn., McLane Farr of West Paducah, Ky., Mary Tunnell of Springfield, Mo., Becca Godman of Cordova, Tenn., and Shelby Sain of Bolivar, Tenn.

Also qualifying but opting to take a Tournament Exemption were Ashburn, Molly Winnett of Gardendale, Ala., Summar Roachell of Conway, Ark., and Esther Huffman of Olive Branch, Miss.
