Hunter King of Atglen finished up with a birdie on the 18th hole for the only sub-80 round of the day as he captured top honors in the 13-to-15 division in a Philadelphia Section PGA Junior Tour stop Monday at The Country Club of Harrisburg.
His birdie at the last gave King an 8-over-par 79 over the 6,317-yard, par-71 Country Club of Harrisburg layout and his second Junior Tour win of the year. Tyler Zimmer of Bryn Mawr, who has been riding a hot streak of late, was the runnerup with an 81.
James Ulsh of Carlisle finished third with an 82, Henry Fish of Malvern was fourth with an 84, Jason Eck of Harrisburg was fifth with an 85 and John Peters of Carlisle was sixth with an 86.
William Pabst of Roaring Brook Township finished seventh with an 87, Jack Shmonov of Harrisburg was eighth with an 88, Jack Penwell of Enola was ninth with a 93 and CJ Arnold of Yardley rounded out the top 10 with a 118. Julian Lauver of Lancaster finished 11th with a 122.
Austin Lauver of Lancaster (older brother of Julian, I’m guessing) took top honors in the 16-to-18 division with an 82 that featured a birdie on the seventh hole. It was Austin Lauver’s first win of the year.
Nathan Shaw of Hershey was the runnerup with an 88 and Brandon Gregg of North Wales finished third with a 92.
Amanda Gerrish of Hummelstown birdied the sixth hole on her way to an 83 that gave her the top spot in the girls 13-to-15 division. It was Gerrish’s second Junior Tour victory of the year. McKylie Boreman of New Cumberland was the runnerup with a 91.
Lillian McNally of York finished third with a 97, Ava O’Sullivan of Exton was fourth with a 98 and Kelsey McConaghy of Palmyra was fifth with a 111.
Olivia Gardenhour of Waynesboro was the only entrant in the 16-to-18 division and her 84 included a birdie on the 17th hole.
Isaak Bloom made a tough par on the third hole on his way to a 48 that bested the field of nine-holers. Griffin Walizer of McElhattan was the runnerup, just a shot behind Bloom with a 49. Nolan DeForest of Harrisburg finished third with a 51.
