Brett Roberts of Coral Springs, FL shoots the low 36 hole total and the low round for any Florida Junior Tour events so far in 2017. His opening round of 70 (-1) put him two shots back of day one leader Nicholas Gabrelcik and tied with Jonah Leach. By the fourth hole of final round Brett was tied for the lead and he would never look back from there. Brett made eight birdies during Sundays final day and would shoot 6-under 65 en route to a four shot victory. Jonah Leach would place second with two very impressive rounds of 70-69. Tianyu Wu (71-70) took third place.
Karoline Tuttle is at it again. She earned her second win in as many starts. Her last coming just a month ago at LPGA International and she picked up right where she left off over the weekend at Eagle Lakes. Entering the final round, Karoline was three shots back of the lead and after her steady round of even par 71 which included two birdies, she knew she was in contention. Karoline had to wait until the last group of girls finished up behind her. The girls in the lead group could not hold strong and once Jacqueline Putrino's final round of 74 was official, Tuttle knew she had a one shot win. Jacqueline Putrino finished in second place and Taylor Roberts finished two shots back for third.
