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 - Bo Wardynski

 

CURRENT YEAR WINNER - Charlotte Hillary

One winner of the Colorado Junior Amateur on Wednesday not only captured a Junior Golf Alliance of Colorado title for the first time, but scored his breakthrough victory in no less than a JGAC major championship. 

"It's my first JGAC win ever," the red-head said. "I haven't won a (JGAC) Tour event or an little event. Nothing. It's my first win, and it's nice that it's a major."

“This means the world to me. Before this season I told my dad I wanted to win a major before I go off to college. I was happy I could do that.” CONTINUE READING

 


The other champion is no stranger to success at the highest level of junior golf in Colorado, as Wednesday marked her fourth title in a JGAC major. And the victory may have come in her final time competing in a JGAC tournament.

Hillary, who will play golf at Northwestern University beginning in the fall, very well may have been budding adieu to JGAC tournament action on Wednesday though there's a small chance she'll compete in the Colorado Junior Match Play later this month.

If the Colorado Junior Am was indeed her JGAC finale, "It feels good that I left Colorado on a good note and I left junior golf in Colorado on a good note," said Hillary, the JGAC Girls Player of the Year in 2019. "Looking ack on it now, I'm really happy."

Colorado Junior PGA Championship

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.

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 - Matthew Wilkinson

 

CURRENT YEAR WINNER - Morgan Miller

The victory "is pure joy, but I'm very tired," said Wilkinson, a student-athlete at Arapahoe High School.

Wilkinson Scored a 4-and-3 victory in the final over Tayleb Schaefer of Sterling, capping a week in which just on of his matches went past the 16th hole.

"I was hitting it pretty good actually,”said Wilkinson, who called the victory the biggest of his young career."I was making some putts on the front nine, which helped. I took advantage of some mistakes. Ultimately that led to me getting ahead so much."

"It's incredible", said Miller who has competed in Colorado quite a few times while visiting with her family from the Lone Star State. " I haven't won a tournament in a couple years, so it feels really good to come back and win one, especially in a different state."

Miller was 3 up through 11 holes against Kaylee Chen of Parker, but needed to sink an 18-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole Thursday afternoon to secure a 1-up victory in the girls final. 

“Oh my gosh, I was so nervous,” Miller said. "I saw the mountains in the background, so I knew it was uphill and to be slow. I was like, " You are not leaving this short. You are not. It was going to break a hair left and I just knocked it right in there."

JGAC Tour Championship

JGAC Tour Championship

JGAC TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP

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

CURRENT YEAR WINNER - WES ERLING

 

CURRENT YEAR WINNER - EMMA BRYANT

Erling, a 15-year-old who placed fourth in the 5A boys state high school tournament on Tuesday, prevailed by a stroke among the boys after firing a 4-under-par 68 on Saturday. Bryant likewise won by one, in her case after a 2-over-par 74.

“To me, a win is a win even if it’s not exactly the way I wish I won,” said Erling, a sophomore at Pine Creek High School. “I’m very happy. I played very solid yesterday. Even though it was only an 18-hole tournament, I couldn’t have asked for more.”

“It’s definitely the top (thing he’s accomplished so far in golf). I haven’t done much besides state (high school) so winning this is just huge. It just makes me feel so much better about the end of this year.”

“I was really able to keep my head the entire round,” he said. “And putting was so much better than at state (at The Club at Rolling Hills in Golden). I didn’t miss a putt inside of 10 feet. That’s what I was most proud of.”

Erling said all six of his birdies came from inside of 10 feet. “My irons were very solid, just like at state,” he said. “Being able to win this one, it puts into perspective what I’m capable of.”

For Emma Bryant, it’s her second JGAC major victory, but her first since the 2017 Colorado Junior Match Play. She also won the 5A girls state high school individual title in 2018.

“It truly means a lot to come out on top,” said the 17-year-old senior at Eaglecrest High School, who has committed to play her college golf at the University of Denver. “Though it is a one-day tournament, I still was at the top of the leaderboard, so that’s really great for me. It’s a good thing to head into next season with that confidence.”

“I’m happy I could pull through yesterday even though I didn’t know what would come of it,” she said. “It worked out for me.”

Bryant adds this week’s victory to two previous wins this year. She prevailed in the women’s division of the CGA Western Chapter Championship and at a JGAC Tour event early in the season. Coincidentally, that JGAC tournament was also shortened by weather issues.

“It feels great,” she said. “I’m really proud of myself. I think this summer was one of the best summers I’ve had. … I think I really proved to myself I could hang in with all those other girls. And even though I didn’t know what today would bring, this tournament kind of proves that every shot counts. Even though you may not know it at the time, it truly does matter."
