Oakley Pro Junior at Bucks Run


Mt Pleasant, MI-  An exciting day wrapped up Sunday at the Oakley Pro-Junior hosted at Bucks Run Golf Club. It was a great turn out with a field of 21 teams. The teams were split up into two divisions based on the average age of their three juniors. We had 10 teams in the 16-18 division and 11 teams in the 12-15 division. The tournament was played in shamble format which allowed each team to play from the team’s best drive and then play their own ball in from there, carding their best two scores.

In the 12-15 division we had some great competition! Coming in second place by one shot was Andre Thielk’s team with Xavier Lee, Kate Mine Lee, and Cameron Cowland. The Thielk team carded a 131 (-13). Coming in first place for the 12-15 division was Justin Lauers team with Gavin Lauer, Justin Lauer, and Bryce Henderson. The Lauer team carded a 130 (-14).

In the 16-18 division we had Ian Ziska’s team with Ben Fath, Owen Seay, Nick Althouse taking home the second place flags. The Ziska team carded a 130 (130). Our Champions for the 16-18 division were John Gates, Cam Carrol, Scott Campbell and Charlie Delong. The Gates team carded a 125 (-19).
