Mules National Golf Club has played host to 156 of Missouri’s finest junior golfers yesterday. The 2020 Junior Amateur held the first round of 18 yesterday and will continue play today with another round of 18. While the Junior golfers competed against themselves, they also had to contest with the hot weather conditions.
Even with the weather being as tough as it was, our golfers delivered some incredible scores. For instance, in the 16-18 boy’s division, Dillon Calvin delivered an incredible first round 66 (-4) and did so by dropping in five birdies. Calvin is closely followed by Trey Rusthoven and Joey Perotti with their opening round of 71 (+1). On the girl’s side of the 16-18 division, Taryn Overtstreet shot an outstanding 72 (+2) with three birdies on the backside. She is closely followed by Kassidy Hull and Ellie Johnson who shot 73 (+3).
The younger divisions were not short on posting some scores either. For the boy’s 8-9 age division, Graham Henley shot a remarkable 37 (+2), with an eagle on the seventh. Just a couple divisions up for the 12-13 boys, Caden Mickelson posted a 71 (+1) while accumulating six birdies throughout his round. On the girl’s side, for the 12-13 age division, Page Bowman shot a 74 (+4) with a good rally on the backside to shoot 36.
We look forward to our juniors posting some incredible numbers today. We’d also like to thank the staff at Mules National Golf Club for allowing us to host this tournament.
