Talley wins and sets records at The Ledges

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. β€” Tolver Dozier of Dothan, Ala., shot a 1-under-par 70 and a three day total of even-par 213 to get into a playoff. On the third playoff hole, he made a five-foot putt for birdie to earn the win. Emma Talley of Princeton, Ky., shot a women's record 6-under-par 65 to win in the Girls Division.

The AJGA Huntsville Junior presented by The Huntsville Athletic Club was a 54-hole stroke-play tournament conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at The Ledges. The field featured 70 boys and 24 girls, ages 12-18, from 17 states. The Boys Division played the par-71 course at 7,044 yards while the Girls Division played it at 6,029 yards.

Dozier birdied Nos. 16 and 17 and then chipped in for birdie on No. 18 to finish with an even-par 213 three round total. After Dozier chipped in, Tyler Thomas of Beaumont, Texas, made a 30-foot putt on 18 for birdie to match Dozier's score and send the championship into a playoff.

On the third playoff hole Dozier used a hybrid wood to stick it less than 10 feet from the hole. He made the birdie putt and in just his third AJGA event, Dozier earned his first win.

β€œIt was a wild tournament and I'll never forget it,” Dozier said. β€œI wish it could have been on TV. I got lucky hitting those hybrids so close in the playoff. It's just a shame that someone had to lose.”

Thomas finished in second with a three-round total of even-par 213. In third was John Boehme of Jacksonville Beach, Fla., who shot a three day total 1-over-par 214. Finishing in fourth with a three-round total of 2-over-par 215 was A.J. Crouch of Jacksonville, Fla. Rounding out the top five was John Russo of Alpharetta, Ga., who shot a three-round total of 3-over-par 216.

Talley, a two-time Rolex Junior All-American, earned her sixth career AJGA win shooting a three-round total of 15-under-par 198. The three-round total is the lowest 54-hole total for a girl in the AJGA's 33 year history. Talley also broke the record for largest margin of victory, winning by 22-strokes, breaking the old record of an 18 shot margin.

β€œI was hitting the ball really well,” Talley said. β€œI was hitting the ball to six feet or closer on my approach shots and I don't know how I hit those so close. I haven't played good lately and to come back like this the week before the U.S. Junior means a lot to me.”

Janie Jackson of Huntsville, Ala., finished in second place with a three day total of 7-over-par 220. Rounding out the top three in the Girls Division was Hannah Collier of Birmingham Ala., who shot a three-round total of 10-over-par 223.
