PEEVLER, REED VICTORIOUS AT JOHN DEERE CLASSIC JUNIOR CHAMPIONSHIP
Medalists both birdie final hole to secure title

LONG GROVE, Iowa - Cole Peevler of Keokuk, Iowa, fired a final-round 2-under-par 70 Friday to finish at 207 for the tournament and claim victory at the AJGA John Deere Classic Junior Championship. In the Girls Division, Christie Reed of Coral Springs, Fla., carded her third even-par 72 of the week to capture her second AJGA title of the summer.

The John Deere Classic Junior Championship, conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at the par-72 Glynn's Creek Golf Course, featured 99 players representing 19 states and Canada, with the majority of competitors hailing from Illinois.

Peevler, who began the day in a tie for first with Patrick Hall of Owatonna, Minn., grabbed an early lead with a birdie on the first hole. Peevler finished the front nine with a one-shot lead at 1-under 35. Peevler bagged his second birdie of the day on the par-4, 403-yard 13th, which pushed his lead to two. After a bogey on No. 17, Peevler went to No. 18 in a three-way tie for the lead with Hall and Mark Conlon of Arlington, Texas.

"I told myself after my tee shot on No. 18, 'You have to win,'" said the 15-year-old. "Even after my three-putt on 17, I had a lot of confidence and I did not want to go to a play-off."

On No. 18, Hall put his second shot on the back of the green to within 20 feet of the hole. Peevler then ripped his 8-iron from 155 yards away to within 10 feet. Hall lipped-out his birdie putt and had two feet left for par. Peevler ran in his 10-footer for his third birdie of the day and his first AJGA victory.

"I knew which way that putt on 18 was going to break, so I had a lot of confidence when I got to the green," Peevler said. "I had a great day. I kept making pars and the birdies came. It feels great to get my first AJGA win."

Hall (66-71-71-208) and Conlon (69-71-68-208) finished tied for second, while Steve Sass of Mequon, Wis., finished fourth at 214 for the tournament. Derrick Whiting of Carlos, Minn., Wesley Williams of Franklin, Tenn., Max Harres of Belleville, Ill., Trent Leon of Dallas, Texas, and Tyler Peglow of Marshalltown, Iowa, finished in a tie for fifth with a tournament total of 216.

In the Girls Division, Reed (72-72-72-216) got off to a great start with a birdie on the par-4, 357-yard first. After a bogey on No. 5, Reed made her second birdie of the day on No. 8 and finished the front nine at 1-under-par. However, Taylor Leon of Dallas, Texas, was right on her tail after a 3-under-par front nine put her three shots off the lead. On No. 18, Reed sunk a 30-foot birdie putt to secure the title.

"I was in between clubs on 18 and I waited to see what Taylor did before I decided what to hit," Reed, 16, said. "I hit what I knew I could get on the green. Taylor was on fire today, and I knew that I had to play smart and not make mistakes. I am excited about this win and this summer."

Leon, who fired a 3-under-par 69, finished second with 218 for the tournament, and Christi Athas of Eldora, Iowa, took third place at 227.
