The 2015 JDL season ended last weekend with Garb Championship played at the Heartwell Golf Course. With 108 players it was the largest field of the year and a great way to end the season. This year’s championship was made more exciting by having the Boys & Girls Divisions playing 18 holes to determine their champions. In the Boys Division it was Garrick Chiu who shot a steady 6 over par 60 to beat out second place finishers Sam Bobbit and Kamren James who both shot 61 with Sam winning the second place medal over Kamren who took third. In the Girls 12 & Over Division it was Elise Fujita who came out on top with a solid 66 to edge out runner up finishers Lauren Walstrom & Keely Tang by 1 shot, Lauren shot a back nine 29 to secure the second place medal and Keely taking third place.
In the Boys 11 & Under Division it was Noah Fry and Joseph Gutierrez that shot 2 over par 29’s while Nigel Epperson was 1 shot back with a 30. Noah won the card off take the first place medal, Joseph winning second and Nigel won third. In the Girls 11 & Under Division it was Mahalia Hampton coming out on top by shooting a 4 over par 31 to beat second place finisher Megan Carrigan who shot 34 and third place winner Chloe Kim was 1 shot back with a solid 35. The weather and conditions were great and the scores were low, we want to than the staff at Heartwell Golf Course for once again host our championship, we also want to say a special thank you to our title sponsor the Garb Clothing Company for providing a free golf shirt for each contestant in the field, everyone was thrilled and it made our event even more special.
