COLORADO JUNIOR AMATEUR CHAMPIONSHIP

The CGA Junior Stroke Play Championship was first played in 1977 and the corresponding CWGA Junior Stroke Play Championships started in 1979. In 2016, the CGA and CWGA moved their respective events under the Junior Golf Alliance of Colorado and they were renamed to become the Colorado Junior Amateur Championship.

CURRENT YEAR WINNER - JAKE WELCH

 

CURRENT YEAR WINNER - KATIE BERRIAN

Jake Welch of Highlands Ranch is a golfer who happens to also be quite adept at wrestling. In fact, the Valor Christian senior-to-be finished third in the 170-pound weight class at the 4A state high school wrestling tournament earlier this year. 

On Wednesday, Welch figuratively used his grappling skills to wrestle away the boys title in the Colorado Junior Amateur from Dillon Stewart of Fort Collins, who threw down the gauntlet in the final round by shooting a 5-under-par 31 on the front nine and a 6-under-par 66 overall on Wednesday at Todd Creek Golf Club in Thornton.

So what did Welch, playing four groups behind Stewart on Wednesday, do in response? 

He just posted a career-best round -- for the second straight day -- by shooting a 66 of his own to overtake Stewart on the back nine and claim the boys championship. CONTINUE READING

 

On the girls side, Katie Berrian of Castle Rock did some nifty final-round work of her own to claim the trophy. The 16-year-old rebounded from a second-round 82 with an even-par 72 to emerge from a tightly-packed leaderboard to earn the victory.

Berrian was two behind entering the final day. But after going 2 over par on the front nine, she played the back in a bogey-free 2 under par, making birdies on 14 and 16. The 16-year-old, who placed third in the 5A girls state high school tournament in May, finished with a 10-over-par 226 total after going 72-82-72.

CURRENT YEAR WINNER - DAVIS BRYANT

 

CURRENT YEAR WINNER - HAILEY SCHALK

For the second straight year at the Air Force Academy's Eisenhower Golf Club, the Boys title in the Colorado Junior PGA Championship went to Davis Bryant of Aurora.

Bryant became the first boys player to win consecutive Colorado Junior PGAs since Steven Kupcho in 2010 and '11.

Overall, Bryant is the fourth boy to win the event twice in a row.

On a windy final day at Eisenhower GC, Bryant shot a 1-over-par 73 to post a 6-under 210 total. The 18-year-old, who now plays his college golf at Colorado State University, made two birdies and three bogeys on Wednesday.

COLORADO JUNIOR MATCH PLAY CHAMPIONSHIP

The CGA Junior Match Play Championship was first played in 1951 and the corresponding CWGA Junior Match Play Championships started in 1953. In 2016 the CGA and CWGA moved their respective events under the Junior Golf Alliance of Colorado and they were renamed to become the Colorado Junior Match Play Championship.

CURRENT YEAR WINNER - JACK CASTIGLIA

 

CURRENT YEAR WINNER - LAUREN LEHIGH

Jack Castiglia of Lakewood capped off his junior golf career in fine fashion on Wednesday, rallying from 3 down on the back nine in the boys final to claim the title in the Colorado Junior Match Play, a victory that narrowly eluded him the past two years.

Castiglia, a semifinalist in this event in 2016 and a finalist last year, defeated Tyler Severin of Johnstown, 2 and 1 in the boys final.

In the final, Severin made three birdies on the front nine, including a 45-footer on No. 8, to make the turn at 3 up. And Castiglia didn't help his cause by missing a 2-foot par putt on No. 7.

But things turned on the back nine. Severin, a University of Wyoming signee who played in the CoBank Colorado Open last week, three-putted the 10th and 14th holes, and Castliglia made eagle on 11 with a 55-foot putt. That evened the match after 14. Both players two-putted for birdie on No. 15 for a halve.

Then Severin pushed his tee shot and his third shot into the water that borders the entire right side of No. 16, falling behind for the first time in the match. And after Castiglia hit a good tee shot on the par-3 17th, Severin put two more balls into the water short of the green and conceded the match to his 17-year-old University of Northern Colorado-bound opponent, in both players' final junior golf tournament.

Lauren Lehigh of Loveland defeated two of the state's top girls golfers on the same day to earn the girls championship at Plum Creek Golf Club in Castle Rock.

Lehigh beat 2017 JGAC Girls Player of the Year -- and 2016 Colorado Junior Match Play champion -- Hailey Schalk of Erie in the title match, 4 and 3.

Earlier that day, in the semifinals, Lehigh posted another 4 and 3 victory over Charlotte Hillary of Englewood, who went to the match play round of 32 at the California Women's Amateur Championship last week.

The girls final was a matchup of two of the four players who represented Colorado in the Girls Junior Americas Cup at Hiwan Golf Club in Evergreen. The finalists were all square after four holes, but Lehigh won the next three, making 15-foot birdie putts on Nos. 5 and 7 and prevailing with a par on No. 6.

Schalk, winner of this event in 2016, cut the deficit to 1 down by winning No. 9 with a par and No. 11 with a birdie. But Lehigh, the 2017 4A state high school champion, won 12 and 13 with pars, then she closed out the match on No. 15, where her 210-yard 4 hybrid from the rough ended up a couple of inches from the hole for an eagle.

JGAC TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP

The creation of the JGAC in 2016 marked the inagural year for the JGAC Tour Championship.

CURRENT YEAR WINNER - JACKSON KLUTZNICK

 

CURRENT YEAR WINNER - CHARLOTTE HILLARY

It was a big week for Jackson Klutznick of Denver.

Klutznick claimed a big title for the second time in a week as he captured the 3A boys state high school individual championship on Tuesday at Boulder Country Club. In addition, Sunday's victory came at Klutznick's home course, Denver Country Club.

"It's just incredible," Klutznick said. "I feel like the coaches and the staff at Kent bring out the best in all of us. I don't think we could do it without them. My coach at Kent (Bob Austin) came out today to support me. You don't get that at a lot of these places."br />
Klutznick rallied for the boys title. His 1-over-par 72 on Sunday left him at even-par 142 overall, good for a one-stroke victory over his Kent Denver teammate Jeffrey Zhou, a 15-year-old from Greenwood Village who closed with a 71.

Klutznick carded three birdies, two bogeys and a double bogey on Sunday. As he himself fully acknowledged, competing on your home course -- which he was doing this weekend -- brought certain advantages. That can happen when a person has played a course an estimated 500 times over the years, as Klutznick guesses he has at DCC.

It was a big day for Charlotte Hillary of Englewood.

Hillary won the event for the second time in the three years it's been played, and that's despite not being in the field in 2017.

Hillary, who earlier this year made the match play round of 32 at the California Women's Amateur Championship, rallied from a three-stroke deficit going into Sunday to overtake first-round leader Caroline Jordaan of Lakewood. The 16-year-old Hillary shot an even-par 71 in round 2 to check in with a winning total of 3-over 145.

"It's going to be fun to have my name on (the trophy) twice," the 16-year-old said. "Normally when I play in Colorado it makes me more nervous than when I'm out of state for some reason. So this gives me a lot of confidence to play and win here finally. It's been a while. It really means a lot in that sense. And even though it was chilly, I had a great time."

Hillary made three birdies on a cold Sunday, with two of them on the back nine coming from a mere 18 inches from the cup. She had gotten a new putter about a week ago, but it didn't cooperate during Saturday's round of 74, so she went back to her old one for Sunday.
