The first annual USGTF Junior National Tournament this past August was a success. In the finals, three boys and three girls squared off at Beekman Golf Course in Hopewell, New York. Devin Littler won the boys division with a score of 78, while Kaylie Klemme shot an identical 78 to win the girls division. Afterwards, the two champions squared off in sudden-death for the overall championship.

Playing in front of a large gallery of family and friends, plus a number of Beekman members, the two champions matched pars and birdies, with each golfer -2 through the first four holes. On the fifth hole, Klemme’s birdie putt came up just short while Littler managed to sink his 15-footer for the win.

USGTF member Bob Myers organized the event and served as the tournament host. Plans for the 2019 championship will be announced in the coming months
