PECK VICTORIOUS AT WELLSTONE COMMUNITIES JUNIOR AT CRAIG RANCH
Morris repeats in Girls Division at TPC Craig Ranch

MCKINNEY, Texas — Cameron Peck of Olympia, Wash., birdied his final three holes en route to an even-par 72 to win the Boys Division at the Wellstone Communities Junior at Craig Ranch with a 54-hole total of 2-under-par 214. In the Girls Division, Rachel Morris of Carlsbad, Calif., successfully defended her title after shooting a final-round 73 to finish at 2-over-par 218.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Wellstone Communities Junior at Craig Ranch featured 45 boys and 27 girls — ages 12-18 — from 14 states and four foreign countries. The Boys Division played the course at 6,983 yards while the girls played the course at 6,101 yards.

After three second-place finishes in his career, 16-year-old Peck won his first AJGA tournament after trailing by one shot before making birdie on Nos. 16, 17, and 18. On the par-3 No. 17, Peck hit an 8-iron which flew his shot into the hole, but bounced out. He was then able to make the putt for birdie, which gave him a one-shot lead entering the final hole.

“It feels great to win. I've been so close so many times,” said Peck. “This was a super tough course, you had to take advantage of the downwind holes and make birdie.”

Finishing second was Talor Gooch of Midwest City, Okla. Gooch's final-round 72 left him at even-par 216. Jordan Speith of Dallas, jumped from 17th to third and posted the low round of the day, a 4-under-par 68. Mills finished in fourth with a 219. Finishing tied for fifth at 4-over-par 220 were Ben Itterman of Carlsbad, Calif., and Shane Lebow of Santa Barbara, Calif.

In the Girls Division, 16-year-old Morris believed that having a good mental game and winning last year was key to winning her fourth AJGA tournament.

“Today was the toughest day with the wind,” said Morris, a 2007 second-team Rolex Junior All-American. “I wanted to stay positive and focus on my own game.”

Tonje Daffinrud of Tonsberg, Norway, finished eight shots behind Morris at 10-over-par 226. Finishing third was Lila Barton of Dallas, who finished at 12-over-par 228.
