Kevorkian Ousts Trim in  Final Match

Jake Kevorkian grabs his first state championship title

Jake Kevorkian IV, from Clearwater, faced off against Lucas Trim, from Tampa, in the finals of the Junior Match Play Championship at Wyndemere Country Club. They started their 18-hole match at 7:30 AM and it didn't take long to crown a champion.

Early nerves made both players struggle to find the solid play that got them to the finals. They halved the first hole with bogies and Kevorkian took a 1up lead with a par and the second hole. Trim birdied the par 5 third hole sending them all square to the par 3 fourth. The tees were moved up giving the players no more than a wedge to a hole tucked right over the water. Trim's tee shot came up a few yards short in the water leaving the door open for Kevorkian, however, he could not capitalize. Kevorkian would also find the water and the players halved the hole with 5's.

Trim birdied the 6th to go 1up, but a bogey on the 7th sent them back to all square. They would then tie the 8th and 9th holes before making the turn to the back nine.

Kevorkian tried to make pars as he could tell Trim didn't have his best today. Pars on the 10th and 12th holes would put Kevorkian 2up. A nearly holed chip and conceded par on the 14th moved him to 3up. Trim hit a wayward drive on the 15th which found the trees. He tried to pull off a miracle shot, but found the water. Kevorkian hit his approach to 15 feet and Lucas Trim conceded the hole and the match giving Jake Kevorkian the 2012 Junior Match Play Championship 4 & 3.

Kevorkian said "I held a three and four up lead in my last three matches through 12 holes and I let each player back in the match, so I tried not to make any big errors and hole onto the lead." This is his first state championship title for Kevorkian and makes him exempt for next year's Boys' Junior Championship and Amateur Match Play Championship.
