Stone, Yu, & Giandomenico Capture FJT Titles
The Florida Junior Tour event at Viera East Country Club wrapped up today with three winners.
Despite the two-hour weather delay, Yuanru Yin from Houston, Texas was able to pull away from the rest of the field, making birdie after birdie. Yin birdied holes 1, 5, 10, 11, and 12. Her rounds of 72-75-147 gave her a three-stroke victory over Kendall Griffin in the girls 13-15 age division.
In the Girls 16-18 age division, 11-year-old Latana Stone captured her first FJT victory for 2013. Stone shot an incredible first day round of 69 and had a two-stroke lead over Athena Yang going into round two. During the final round, Stone struggled on her front nine shooting a four-over par 40. Ansley Bowman shot a first round 74 and made an impressive charge, which included an eagle on hole 5. However, Bowman’s final round of 72 would not be enough. Stone responded with a back nine 36 that proved good enough for a 1-stroke victory over Bowman.
In the Boys 13-15 age division, David Giandomenico triumphed, shooting rounds of 71-74-145. Giandomenico was able to pull off a one-shot victory over Terrence Zhang, Austin Hitt and Andrew Kozan. Giandomenico made four birdies during his final round on holes 11, 13, 17, and 3.
Ella Woods had a hole-in-one on hole 13 during the first round.
