Zoe competed in the FSGA’s Florida Junior Tour (FJT) 54-Hole Major at Florida State University’s Seminole Legacy Golf Club in the Girls’ 16–18 division. She posted an opening round 74 to stand atop the leaderboard. In the second round, Zoe held her lead with an even-par 72.
Zoe explains, “I have been able to stay consistent and play well by forgetting about the bad shots and not focusing on the fact that I am in the lead. Instead, I focus on just playing golf.”
Sitting five shots back in the last round, Amelie Phung knew she would need her best stuff to have a chance at victory. She carded five birdies and one bogey for a tournament low round of 68. Phung won the Girl’s Division by six strokes over Zoe’s final round 79 for second place.
Wylie Inman competed in the FJT 54-Hole Major at the University of Gainesville’s Mark Bostick Golf Course in the Boys’ 13-15 division. In cold conditions, he posted rounds of 70-71-70 to finish solo second. Wylie carded the most birdies of the tournament with eleven over the three days.
“Very proud of these students,” added Executive Director Carl Mistretta Jr. “They both played solid and were in the hunt for a victory in cold and difficult conditions with many D1 college coaches watching. Keep an eye on these two, they are incredibly talented and will each play at the next level.”
