Colorado Junior Match Play

Colorado Junior Match Play

Posted on August 02, 2016
Top-seeded AJ Ott of Fort Collins easily advanced to the round of 16 at the Colorado Junior Match Play Championship, but 31st-seeded Michael Perea of Arvada upset No. 2 Dillon Stewart of Fort Collins, 1 up in Monday's round of 32 at The Ridge at Castle Pines North.

Ott (left), winner of the Colorado Junior PGA last month, defeated Connor Jones of Westminster 5 and 4 in his quest for two consecutive junior major titles in 2016. And Braden Bentley of Colorado Springs, the winner of the Colorado Junior Amateur in June, scored an 8-and-7 victory over Beam Boonta of Centennial.

But Perea upended Stewart, who finished eighth Friday in the boys 14-15 division of the Optimist International Junior Golf Championships in Florida.

Meanwhile, the top eight seeds in the girls tournament received first-round byes on Monday. The top seed to play on Monday's round of 32, No. 9 Marie Jordaan of Cherry Hills Village, fell to No. 24 seed Jenna Chun of Englewood in 19 holes.
