Alyssa Lamoureux, a resident of Seminole, is guaranteed a spot in the Tour Championship after her two consistent scores of 3-over par 75, awarding her with her first FJT win this weekend.
Although battling a thirty minute rain delay on Saturday, a score of 72 lead the field in both the girls’ and boys’ division after round one. Manuel Girona, of Windermere, started the tournament strong with an even par round of 72, leading the event by one. Erika Smith, of Orlando, lead the girls division by three strokes after also shooting an even par 72 in round one.

Kozan finished with a tournament low score of 68, two round total of 142, winning by 2 strokes. Girona fell out of contention with his second round 77 moving him to tie for eighth place with Carter Dalili. Brandon Mancheno and Robert Eisch both shot two and one- under consecutively in round two to finish tied for second with a total of 144.
In the girls’ division Erika Smith started the tournament three shots ahead of Alyssa Lamoreux but fell to second place after firing a second round score of 81. Consistency was Lamoreux’s forte this weekend with a steady score of 75 for both rounds. Lamoreux’s total of 150 won the tournament by three strokes over Smith’s 153 total. Three girls, Sarah Noona, Paige Lee Garris, and Alexa Pano, tied for third place with a total of 157.
