COLORADO JUNIOR PGA CHAMPIONSHIP

The Colorado Junior PGA Championship was first hosted by the Colorado PGA in 1975. In 2016, the event was moved under the Junior Golf Alliance of Colorado. The individual male and female champions advance to the national Junior PGA Championships.

CURRENT YEAR WINNER - DILLON STEWART

 

CURRENT YEAR WINNER - LAUREN LEHIGH

In the boys tournament at the Colorado Junior PGA, Stewart left little hope for his opponents by rebounding from a first-round 75 with back-to-back 4-under-par 68s for a 5-under 211 total. And he put on a clinic on the back nine the last two rounds, playing it in a combined 9 under. That includes a 5-under 31 on Wednesday.

And had Stewart had his putter going, that 31 could have easily turned into a twenty-something as he missed putts of 4 feet and 3 1/2 feet — not to mention a 7-footer and a 9-footer.

It was a complete bounce-back from last week’s AJGA Hale Irwin Colorado Junior, where Stewart shot a final-round 79 after leading by two going into the day.

In the girls tournament, Lehigh earned her second victory in a JGAC major, following up on her win at the 2018 Colorado Junior Match Play. She also captured her second state high school individual title last month, this time in the 5A state meet.

Lehigh came into Wednesday with a five-stroke lead and wasn’t seriously challenged for the top spot. Her 5-over-par 77 gave her a 13-over 229 total.

It was a welcome result for her given how she’s sometimes struggled at Eisenhower in the past. For instance, when she played the 2016 Colorado Junior Amateur at Eisenhower, she opened with a 92 en route to missing the cut.
