COMMERCE, GA- The Athens Area Junior Golf Tour was presented with another beautiful Spring day — albeit with some wicked winds — as we held our 2nd event of the 2017 Spring Series on Saturday April 22nd at Double Oaks GC with the Epps, Holloway, DeLoach, & Hoipkemier Classic, presented by Pinnacle Bank.
And while there was great scoring up and down the entire field of 71 players, none stood out more than the play of the newly-created Boys 12-13 Age Group. This was a great battle among 16 competitors in this division, and at the end of the day Will Baker of Statham came away with the victory, firing a stellar 1-over 73 for the win, by 1 stroke over Andrew Kim of Alpharetta. In an overall impressive showing by the whole division, the top 4 in this group were separated by only 5 strokes.
Also standing out was Sara Gibson of Statham, who shot a strong 78 to take the Girls 12-14 Division title by 5 strokes over Maggie Jackson of Tallulah Falls.
We would like to congratulate ALL players in how they competed and withstood the windy conditions on Saturday…71 players really showed a lot of heart and class in getting the job done!
