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. — 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.

“At one point on the back nine my dad said that I had a chance for a bogey-free round,” Tomlinson said. “After 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.

“I knew my luck was going to even out,” Meadow said. “I 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.

“I worked really hard this off-season,” Meadow said. “It 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.
