Long Putts Secure Wingo’s Win at Kingsmill

August 26, 2010 by  

Tyler Wingo (Fairfax, VA) went wire-to-wire at the AJGA Junior at Kingsmill Resort and Spa in Williamsburg, VA.  Going into the third and final round of the tournament, Wingo had a three-stroke lead after shooting 68, 67 (145) on the River Course.   However, the margin of lead didn’t remain that way.  With a one-stroke lead going into #16, he bogied the hole and made it a new tournament.  A two-hole tournament.

On #17 approach, he left himself just off the green and about 30 feet away.  He elected to putt.  A wise decision as he drained it for birdie to regain the lead.  After putting his drive in the right rough on #18, he showed great recovery skills to par the hole and take the win by a stroke.  Wingo finished the day with a 73 (208).  Evan Russell (Essex Junction, VT), who was 5 shots back and tied for 5th after the second round, came up big shooting a 2-under, 69, to finish one shot behind Wingo for the second place.

In the Girls Division, Kelly Shon (Port Washington, NY) overcame a two-stroke deficit for the win.  She put up the low round of the tournament in the Girls Division with a 4-under, 67.  She finished the tournament at 4-under, 209, clearing the rest of the field by 4 strokes.  Daniela Lendl (Vero Beach, FL) placed second at 213.

Ju-hee Bae (Fairfax, VA) was the top Girls finisher among the local DC Metro area players competing this week.  She finished with a T6 – 72, 75, 73 (220).

Ju-hee Bae of Fairfax, VA finished tied for 6th place at the AJGA Junior at Kingsmill Resort and Spa in Williamsburg, VA.
