Tomlinson Uses Bogey-free Round to Win AJGA Junior at Innisbrook
Meadow's luck evens out to take Girls Division at Innisbrook Resort & Golf Club

PALM HARBOR, Fla. β€” JD Tomlinson of Gainesville, Fla., used three birdies and no bogeys to shoot 68 with an overall 1-over-par 214 to win on the Innisbrook Copperhead Course. Stephanie Meadow of Jordanstown, Northern Ireland, shot a final round even-par 70 to capture the victory in the Girls Division with a 1-over-par 211.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the AJGA Junior at Innisbrook was a 54-hole stroke play event held at Innisbrook Resort & Golf Club. The 210-player field featured players from 30 states, and 5 foreign countries. The Boys Division played the Copperhead Course at 7,330 yards, while the Girls Division played the North Course at 5,800 yards.

Tomlinson fired his first bogey-free tournament round on his way to his first AJGA tournament victory. This win and the bogey-free round were meaningful to Tomlinson, however neither thought entered his mind during the final day.

β€œAt one point on the back nine my dad said that I had a chance for a bogey-free round,” Tomlinson said. β€œAfter that, I knew I had a great shot at winning.”

Rounding out the Boys Division was Daniel Berger of Jupiter, Fla., who finished in second place with a 2-over-par 215. In third was Patrick Rodgers of Avon, Ind., shooting 3-over-par 216. Patrick Winther of Howey-in-the-Hills, Fla., finished fourth with a 4-over-par 217, and Kyle Kochevar of Glen Ellyn, Ill., finished fifth with a 6-over-par 219.

Meadow, who now trains in the U.S., but is originally from Northern Ireland, used some of her Irish luck to bounce back after some unlucky breaks.

β€œI knew my luck was going to even out,” Meadow said. β€œI landed in a couple divots, but then I was able to chip one in later to balance that out.”

Luck aside, Meadow attributes her consistent weekend to her hard work during the winter.

β€œI worked really hard this off-season,” Meadow said. β€œIt was nice to see that all my hard work paid off.”

Ginger Howard of Bradenton, Fla., shot a 3-over-par 213 to finish second in the Girls Division. In third was A.J. Newell of Tampa, Fla., who finished with a 5-over-par 215.
