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 - WALKER FRANKLIN

 

CURRENT YEAR WINNER - ASHLEY KOZLOWSKI

Call it good family karma for the Franklins at the Country Club of Colorado in Colorado Springs.

On Wednesday, Walker Franklin of Westminster scored a personal breakthrough at the course by winning his first Junior Golf of Colorado major championship, the Colorado Junior PGA.

The victory came just 10 months after Franklin’s mom, Kristine, captured her third consecutive CGA women’s senior major at the same site by taking home the CGA Women’s Senior Stroke Play title.

That’s what you call some excellent family mojo for the Franklins at the CC of Colorado. Just one caveat, though: Walker was unaware until Wednesday afternoon that this was the course where his mom had captured her lately Senior Stroke Play championship.

“It means a lot” to win, Kozlowski said. “Going into this, I was like, ‘I could win it.’ But I saw that Charlotte and Hailey were playing. I thought, ‘Well, I’ve got to work hard to do well because they’re really great golfers too.’ Now, knowing that I beat them and did really well and came out on top, I’m excited to keep the momentum up for the next few tournaments.”
Kozlowski, whose previous best showing in a JGAC major was a second place at last year’s Colorado Junior Amateur, called Wednesday’s victory her top accomplishment in golf.
In the final round, the golfer from The Club at Ravenna pulled away with a four-birdie, four-bogey performance.
