LAKE FOREST NATIVES CAPTURE MEDALIST HONORS AT GLENCOE GOLF CLUB
Wyatt and Koschmann earn first AJGA victories

GLENCOE, Ill. — Andrew Wyatt of Lake Forest, Ill., fired a 4-under-par 68 to take medalist honors at the Srixon Qualifier for the Midwest Junior Players Championship. Hailey Koschmann, also of Lake Forest, Ill., captured medalist honors in the Girls Division with a 4-over- par 76.

The 18-hole event, part of the Srixon Qualifier Series, was conducted by the American Junior Golf Association at the Glencoe Golf Club and featured 84 players representing 15 states.

Playing in his first AJGA event, Wyatt got off to a blistering start, making birdie on his first three holes. The 15-year-old was able to sustain the momentum, shooting 34 on both the front and back nines with a total of six birdies and two bogeys.

“I felt like everything was working today,” he said. “I fit in with the course. I hit the fairway, hit the green, then made the putt. It was a very steady round.”

In lieu of playing in this week's event, Wyatt is taking an AJGA Tournament Exemption to be added to his Performance Based Entry Status. Also qualifying for the tournament were Bobby Urso of Beverly Hills, Mich., Tim Gusweiler of Cincinnati, Ohio, Andrew Hopkins V of Maumelle, Ark., Jeffrey Kellen of Rockford, Ill., Kyle Thomas of Fishers, Ind., and Randall Zeck of Cross Plain, Wis. Thomas and Zeck will being taking the Tournament Exemption, rather than play in this week's event.

Also qualifying in the Boys Division in a sudden-death playoff were Kyle Timson of Lake Forest, Ill., Tanner Murphy of Columbus, Ohio, Pat O'Connell of Northbrook, Ill., and Peter Haller of Winnetka, Ill.

For the 15-year-old Koschmann, the qualifier also marks the first time she has played in an AJGA event. She got her inaugural round off to a steady start, making par on the first four holes. She bogeyed Nos. 5 and 6, but pared the next three holes to regain momentum heading onto the back nine.

“I felt I was driving really well and had a lot of good putts,” she said. “Making par on the first couple of holes made me feel really comfortable with the course.”

Koschmann finished strong as well, hitting her chip shot on the par-5 17th to within two feet of the hole. She drained the putt for birdie and closed her round with a par on No. 18.

Brittany Stillwagon of Bloomingdale, Ohio, also earned a qualifying spot with a 7-over-par 79. Danielle Gibbons of Elmhurst, Ill., and Margaret Gilley of Flossmoor, Ill., also qualified but optioned to take an AJGA Tournament Exemption in lieu of playing in this week's event.
