2016 Kingsmill Championship Junior Invitational Recap
The Middle Atlantic PGA and the LPGA Kingsmill Championship hosted a 36-hole junior golf tournament preceding the LPGA Kingsmill Championship April 1-2
Caroline Curtis, 14 of Richmond, Va. won the Overall Girls 18-&-Under Division by 5-strokes, scoring a total of 13-over-par after 36-holes of play. Curtis shot a 4-over-75 in round one of competition, a tournament low for the Girls that included an 8-hole bogey-free streak.
“It was so cool playing here this weekend,” Curtis said. “The rough is thick and the greens were so fast. It was a great experience for me and the course was wonderful.”
Drew Brockwell, 15 of Chesterfield, Va. won the Overall Boys Division by 1-stroke after shooting a 6-over-146. Thirteen players had more birdies that Brockwell, but he led the field with 27 holes of par or better.
“This tournament was just great,” Brockwell said. “I want to thank the MAPGA and Kingsmill staff for this weekend. It was a great venue for us. It doesn’t get any better and the course was in phenomenal condition.”
Bailey Davis finished second in the Overall Girls Division with a 12-over-160 and Pieter Degroot finished second in the Overall boys Division with a 7-over-147.
The Kingsmill Championship Junior Invitational featured 54 of the top junior golfers from the Virginia, Maryland and D.C. areas. The 34 boys and 20 girls competed inside the ropes at the Kingsmill River Course just days before the LPGA Kingsmill Championship.
Defending LPGA Kingsmill championship winner Minjee Lee was in attendance at the event, helping award the winners Sunday.
