INCLEMENT WEATHER CANCELS FINAL ROUND IN NORMAN

Croonquist and Stensrud share medalist honors in Boys Division

 

NORMAN, Okla. – The final round of the Ashworth Junior at Norman was cancelled due to inclement weather, giving Hunter Stensrud of Dallas and Peter Croonquist of Lakeland, Minn., the medalist honors. Amber Hensley of Tulsa, Okla., was awarded the medalist honor in the Girls Division. 


The Ashworth Junior at
Norman was a 36-hole tournament conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at Belmar Golf Club in Norman, Okla. The tournament featured 91 of the nation’s premier junior golfers, ages 12-18, from 21 states and three countries, including 10 from Oklahoma.


The start of the final round was delayed an hour due to heavy rain. Players were only able to complete approximately five holes before more inclement weather forced the committee to cancel the entire final round. First-round results were used to determine the medalists in each division.


Stensrud and Croonquist shot matching 69s in the first round, leaving them atop the Boys Division leaderboard. Both players were pleased with their play during the first day and each was happy to accept the first-place honors.


“This was an important event for me,” Stensrud said. “I was able to gain some confidence playing outside my home state, and I hope to continue to prove myself next year.”


Croonquist shared similar feelings about claiming the title in
Norman.


“It would have been great to play the final round, but I am happy with the results,” he said. “I played well yesterday and this will be something I will remember for a long time.”


Sean Maekawa of Pa’auilo,
Hawaii, Jordan Burleson of Edmond, Okla., Marc Sambol of Dallas, and Tai Reynolds of Victoria, British Columbia rounded out the top five in the Boys Division.


Hensley, who shot an opening-round 4-over-par, did not allow the wet conditions to dampen her excitement.


“This is really exciting,” she said. “I don’t have much experience in larger events and this was a good place to gain some experience. I am definitely looking forward to playing in more tournaments and hopefully earning similar results.”


Lydia Benitez of Dorado,
Puerto Rico and Hannah Lavy of Fayetteville, Ark., shot matching first rounds of 77 to finish in a tie for second.
