NORTH FORT MYERS, Fla. — Joseph Byun of Lake Mary, Fla., shot a 5-under-par 67 to earn medalist honors in the Boys Division at the Srixon Qualifier for the Taylor Woodrow Junior at Magnolia Landing Sunday. Melissa Edmonson of Coral Gables, Fla., and Melanie Audette of Lakeland, Fla., shared the top spot in the Girls Division, both carding 5-over-par 77s.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Srixon Qualifier for the Taylor Woodrow Junior at Magnolia Landing was an 18-hole stroke play event held at The Golf Club at Magnolia Landing.

Byun, who finished seventh at last week’s Birks & Mayors Junior Championship at Mirasol, attributed his success to playing solid overall golf. He collected six birdies, including three in a row on Nos. 12-14, and only one bogey on the day.

“I was hitting fairways and greens, playing good golf,” Byun said. “I wasn't thinking about my score too much. I was just playing.”

DJ Waskom of Cumming, Ga., and Komsith Huachai of Windermere, Fla., finished tied for 15th with 2-over-par 74s.

Andrew Cho of Howey in the Hills, Fla., qualified for the last tournament spot by winning a sudden death playoff on No. 10 with a birdie.
