ROETS BREAKS AWAY TO CLAIM FIRST AJGA VICTORY IN WISCONSIN
Yoo survives sudden-death playoff to take Girls Division crown

OREGON, Wis. â€” Jason Roets of Eikenhof, South Africa, stayed steady for the third day in a row, firing a 1-over-par 73 for a tournament total of 1-under-par 215 and the win at the McArthur Towel & Sports Future Legends. In the Girls Division, Kris Yoo of Schaumburg, Ill., outlasted Allyssa Ferrell of Edgerton, Wis., in a two-hole, sudden-death playoff to take home the victory with a tournament total of 10-over-par 226 at The Legend at Bergamont.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the McArthur Towel & Sports Future Legends was a 54-hole stroke play event held at The Legend at Bergamont. The tournament field featured 90 boys and 30 girls, ages 13-18, from 23 states, South Africa and Indonesia. The Boys Division played the par-72 course at 7,082 yards, while the Girls Division played the layout at 6,099 yards. After the second round, the field was cut to the low 48 boys and 18 girls.

Despite a minor bobble on the par-4, No. 18, Roets kept his game steady on the front and back with scores of 36-37, respectively. He had 12 birdies for the tournament, including a back-to-back run during the final round on Nos. 12 and 13. Crediting his success to his short game, Roets took home his first AJGA win.

“I was solid all day; my putting was really amazing and it saved me a lot,” Roets said. “I almost gave myself a heart attack on the last hole, but I managed to stick to my game plan and hang on. It feels nice to have broken through with a win.”

Finishing in a tie for second were Steven Sorenson of Hartland, Wis., and David Mills of Evansville, Ind., at even-par 216. David Walter of Eau Claire, Wis., took fourth at 1-over-par 217, while Michael Sorenson carded a 2-over-par 218 for a fifth-place finish.

Yoo started her day off strong, stringing together seven straight pars before giving back a stroke on both Nos. 8 and 9. The 2010 graduate then made the turn and got to work, carding a birdie on No. 13 before sinking a clutch birdie putt on No. 18 to force a playoff.

“My legs were shaking on No. 18 while I made that putt,” Yoo said. “I knew I had to make a straight stroke. This was my last AJGA tournament for the summer. I wanted to win at least one and I fulfilled my goal.”

Ferrell took second place at 10-over-par 226, while Alyssa Elliott of Madison, Wis., and Lindsay Danielson of Osceola, Wis., were third with tournament totals of 12-over-par 228.
