Posted on July 17, 2017
Gypsum Creek Golf Course in Gypsum, CO played host to 92 junior golfers ages 11-18 on Monday to begin our 2-day Mountain Event. It was another perfect day to play golf and despite a difficult course, the players fired some great scores!

In the Boys Tour division, Barrett Jones takes the lead after a three-under 69. Jonesí three birdies and an eagle leaves him four shots clear of the field. In second place is Blake Schneiter, carding a 73. Rounding out our top 3 after Round 1 is Holden Kleager (75).

In the Girls Tour division, Caroline Jordaan holds a one-shot lead over her sister, Marie Jordaan. Caroline fired an even-par 72, while Marie shot one-over 73. Marie made three birdies in a row on holes 11-13! In third place and just three back of the lead is Lauren Lehigh (75).

In the Boys 16-18 Series division, Zachary Snow fired a four-over 76 to take a four-shot lead into Round 2. His closest challenger is Ted Truillo (80) and in third place is Ryan Speck (84).
