FJT Winners Announced at Pensacola CC
The Florida Junior Tour wrapped up today in the panhandle with four winners at Pensacola Country Club in Pensacola, FL.
In the 16-18 Boys division, Henry Westmoreland followed his impressive 3-under 69 with an even-par 72-141. This gave Henry a three shot lead over Davis Bower, who shot 71-73-144.
Tyler Strafaci captured his third FJT victory for the year in the Boys 13-15 age division. Following his first day score of 70, Strafaci got off to a hot start on the final day, shooting 34 on the front nine. After birdying both of the par-5’s on the front, Tyler continued his birdie streak on holes 10, 11, and 13. Unfortunately, an errant drive on hole 15 left him with his only over-par score of the day (double bogey), but he quickly bounced back on hole 16 by draining his birdie putt, finishing his final round with a score of 68. Tyler’s 6-under tournament round score gave him a seven-stroke lead over Austin Hitt.
On the girls’ side, Kaeli Jones captured her first FJT victory in the Girls 16-18 division with a 76-78-154. Kaeil’s 154 left her with a three-stroke win over Mallory Etcheberry, who fired a final day 74.
The Girls 13-15 age division went down to the wire between Madison Pacheo and Lauren Miller, until Pacheco birdied 16, 17, and 18 to pull away from the field with a three-shot victory over Lauren Miller. This is the Pensacola native’s second FJT win; her first win was at Perdido Bay last November.
The next two Florida Junior Tour events will take place on April 13-14 at Lake Wales Country Club and Viera East Golf Course.
