Morris runs away with lead to win the Deutsche Bank Partners for Charity Junior Shoot Out

DEDHAM, Mass. β€” The final-round winner of the Deutsche Bank Partners for Charity Junior Shoot Out came down to the wire Thursday in the Boys Division, but it was Theodore Lederhausen of Hinsdale, Ill., who came out on top to claim the victory with a tournament total 1-over-par 211. Rachel Morris of Carlsbad, Calif., won by a commanding twelve strokes in the Girls Division to clench the tournament title at 8-over-par 218.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Deutsche Bank Partners for Charity Junior Shoot Out was a 54-hole stroke play event held at Dedham Country & Polo Club. The 99-player field featured players from 21 states, Taiwan and South Korea. The Boys Division played the par-70 Dedham Country & Polo Club at 6,079 yards, while the Girls Division played it at 5,563 yards.

Lederhausen came into the final round four strokes behind first-and second-round leader Andrew Cho. He trailed Cho all day until he made a birdie on No. 13 to tie the lead. The two players battled back and forth and found themselves tied again with two holes left to play. Another birdie on No. 17 by Lederhausen put him in position to win with a two-stroke lead going into the final hole. Both boys made par on No. 18, but Lederhausen's back-nine 1-under-par 33 was enough to give him the victory.

β€œIt feels good to finally put it all together,” Lederhausen said. β€œOn No. 13, I was down, and I hit a good shot out of the bunker and it lipped out so I had a tap-in for birdie. That fueled me the last six holes. It feels great to close a round.”

Cho of Howey-in-the-Hills, Fla., shot a final-round score of 6-over-par 76 to put him in second place at 3-over-par 213. Tied for third at 6-over-par 216 were Andrew Goodman of Palm City, Fla., and Richard Lamb of South Bend, Ind. Rounding out the Boys Division tied in fifth place were Bradley Kushner of Mendham, N.J., Taylor Peck of Westwood, Mass., and Ricky Stimets of Paxton, Mass., at 7-over-par 217.

Morris came into the day with a commanding seven-stroke lead and did not let her momentum slow as she carded a final-round 4-over-par 74 and had four birdies on the day.

β€œI wasn't really thinking about winning or how much I was up by,” Morris said. β€œI just wanted to put together a good score for myself. On No. 4 I lipped out on an eagle opportunity, but made a birdie, and I also birdied No. 5. I knew if I just kept giving myself birdie chances I'd be okay. ”

Jacqueline Calamaro of Newtown Square, Pa., and Jordan Lippetz of Bradenton, Fla., tied for second in the Girls Division at 20-over-par 230.
