Henderson natives sweep Las Vegas Junior Open
Montgomery wins in Boys Division and Kaui takes the Girls Division at Anthem Country Club

HENDERSON, Nev. — Taylor Montgomery of Henderson, Nev., brought his second round success into the final round with 1-under-par 71 in the Boys Division. In the Girls Division, Alexandra Kaui of Las Vegas went wire-to-wire, winning the tournament with a final round 3-over-par 75. For both Montgomery and Kaui, this was their first AJGA victory.

The Las Vegas Junior Open was a 54-hole stroke play event conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at Anthem Country Club in Henderson, Nev. The tournament field featured 54 boys and 24 girls from eight states and nine countries. The Boys Division played the par-72 course at 7,246 yards and the Girls Division played at 6,173 yards.

Montgomery extended his lead early, birdying three holes on the front nine. His winning tournament total of 4-under-par 212, was good enough for a three-stroke victory. Although it's his first AJGA win, this marks his fourth consecutive tournament win.

“I won the state and regional championship and then the Clark County Amateur, so winning my fourth-in-a-row is by far the biggest accomplishment I've had,” Montgomery said. “I've worked really hard and I think I've put in more work than anyone else, so for me, there's nothing greater.”

Troix Tonkham of Arleta, Calif., finished the tournament in second at 1-under-par 215. Arthur Edelman of Howey-in-the-Hills, Fla., came in third at 1-over-par 217. Alexis Gemme Piacente of Montreal, took fourth place at 2-over-par 218, while Brett Wilson of Mesa, Ariz., rounded out the top five at 5-over-par 221.

In the Girls Division, Kaui won in a sudden-death playoff with a tournament total of 1-over-par 217. Kaui was in tough competition with Jenny Hahn throughout the round.

“I was two ahead of her then I made back-to-back bogeys on Nos. 15 and 16,” Kaui said. “We were going back and forth all day.”

Kaui said she played her best in the playoff, when it counted.

“My dad always tells me it's not over until it's over,” Kaui said. “I just kept reminding myself of that.”

In the Girls Division, Jenny Hahn took second place at 1-over-par 217. Elyse Smidinger of Crofton, Md., and Dana Finkelstein of Chandler, Ariz., tied for third at 8-over-par 224.
