Eagle Helps McLeod Soar to the Top at Mexican Golf Federation Junior Open
Ruiz tops Girls Division in sudden-death playoff at El Tigre Golf & Country Club at the Riviera Nayarit

NUEVO VALLARTA, Nayarit, Mexico — Kraig McLeod of Pebble Beach, Calif., posted a tournament-total even-par 216 to take home the title at the Mexican Golf Federation Junior Open. Ana Ruiz of Chihuahua, México, fought through a sudden-death playoff to claim the top spot in the Girls Division with a three-day total 10-over-par 226.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Mexican Golf Federation Junior Open was a 54-hole stroke play event held at El Tigre Golf & Country Club at the Riviera Nayarit in Nuevo Vallarta, Narayit, México. The 67-player field featured junior golfers from six states, México and Canada. The Boys Division played the course at 6,960 yards while the Girls Division played at 5,987 yards.

McLeod credited his putting game as an essential tool to help him win the tournament. He rounded out the back nine with an impressive eagle on No. 14.

“I hit a big drive, and the downwind was perfect for a 6-iron which left it 10 feet from the hole,” McLeod said. “Then I hit it right in the heart.”

Patrick Sanchez of Mazatlan, México, and Christopher Macasaet of Rancho Murieta, Calif., tied for second place with a score of 2-over-par 218. Andrew Buchanan of Los Altos Hills, Calif., Sam Chun of Howey-in-the-Hills, Fla., and Domenico Geminiani of Bradenton, Fla., all tied for fourth place with scores of 3-over-par 219.

Playing in her native country, Ana Ruiz stayed focused throughout the round. After a double-bogey on the last hole, which led to the sudden-death playoff, Ruiz shook off the nerves to sink in the winning putt.

“Throughout the playoff, I felt a little pressure but controlling the pressure is key,” Ruiz said. “I'm at home here in México, so knowing that made me feel more comfortable.”

Finishing in second place was Ana Laura Gomez of Morelia, México, with a score of 10-over-par 226. Robynn Ree of Redondo Beach, Calif., rounded out the Girls Division shooting a 12-over-par 228.
