Truckee Tahoe Junior Golf Tour tees off at Old Greenwood
Forty-one junior golfers competed at Old Greenwood Golf Club last Tuesday in the opening tournament of the 2014 Truckee Tahoe Junior Golf Tour.
The young golfers posted impressive results despite a challenging course and cool weather.
In the oldest age group, Cody Tilton led the 16-17 boys by firing a 72, while Airon Yarbrough led the 14-15 boys with a round of 88. Sam Willis was close behind at 94, followed by Gordon Critz. All are members of the Truckee High golf team.
Lauren Hickam carded the top score among the girls field while winning her 12-14 age group with a 45 (nine holes).
Haley McCormick and Carly Davis came in first and second, respectively, in the girls 10-11 age group with scores of 53 and 54.
