Chattanooga Junior Challenge

On Saturday, November 11 and Sunday, November 12, 2017, the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour hosted the Chattanooga Junior Challenge at The Bear Trace (Harrison Bay).  With fall now setting in, the leaves blanketing the course, our golfers found a way to blow them away with an amazing weekend of golf!

Our Champion this weekend for the boy’s 16-18 division claimed his title with a playoff.  Cade Puryear and Manny Rogers finished the final round all squared a +1 overall.  Both proceeded back to hole one where Cade preserved through a tough fight victorious. All players had a great time competing against some of the best junior golfers in the country.

Will Smith Boys 14-15

If you were in attendance this weekend you may have not been surprised by this back and forth battle between Joe Carter and Patton Samuels.  Like twins these two shot identical scores on round 1 (76) and in round 2 (71) to go to a playoff.  In the playoff Joe Carter edged out the Victory.  This division had great competition and each player can walk away proud of their effort. Third place went to Benjamin Burns who shot 76 in the first round, 74 in the second for an overall score of 150 for the weekend.

Ernie Els 11-13

From Prospect KY, our Girls 14-18 Champion was none other than Taylor Edlin who stole the show in Round One with a Hole in One on hole 4.  Edlin added in four more birdies that round to finish 3 under.  From then on many tried to catch her and some got close but when round 2 was finished, Taylor Edlin remained on top. Tori Owens came in second with a two day overall score of 148. Following Tori, Speedy Kent finished third with an overall score of 157 for the weekend.

Justin Rose Girls U13
