BartoIn the Boys 15-19 Division, Matt Barto of Leechburg, Pa. won the division convincingly by eight strokes. Finishing his first round front nine with a birdie on the par-5 No. 9, Barto carded a 1-under-par 35 score to kick off his round. He finished round one with an even-par score of 71 to assume the lead before heading into round two. Barto carded par or better on 13 of 18 holes in round two, including two birdies en route to his victory.

“I wanted to try and shoot under par today,” said Barto and despite finishing 3-over-par, he remained victorious.

Barto finished with scores of 71-74 – 145. Barto’s round two score of 74 tied for the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award, the award given to the male and female with the lowest score of the final round. Benjamin Morgret of Venetia, Pa., was also a Clazic Belts winner.

TanabeThe Boys 14 & Under Division was won by Chris Tanabe of Sewickley, Pa., who finished with scores of 84-82 – 166. Tanabe took first by a staggering 14 strokes to secure his first IJGT victory. Ten second round pars helped Tanabe to shave two strokes from his first round score and led him to card a total of 16 pars for the tournament.

“My driver has really been working for me and I have been hitting a lot of fairways,” said Tanabe on his performance.

After trailing in at the conclusion of round one, Walsh made up ground to finish eight strokes ahead of her competition.

“I am a really good putter and was hitting putts both day. I can strike the ball but putting is my strength,” said Walsh. Her round-two score of 79 was the lowest score of the Girls Division, awarding her the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award.

Finishing in a tie for second was round-one leader Synclaire Kuhn of McMurray, Pa., and Marah Penn of Hamburg, N.Y., who both finished with a two-day score of 168.
