Playoff at Lake Arrowhead Invitational
(Mikayla Hauck, Megan Growt, Kayla Priebe) (Christopher Colla, Emmet Herb, Jacob Michel)
The last WPGA Junior Foundation Major of the year ended at Lake Arrowhead on August 11. The juniors played The Pines course the first day and The Lakes course on day two for this 36-hole event. The juniors enjoyed great weather both days.
For the first time in tournament history we had a three way playoff in the girls division. Kayla Priebe (Appleton), Mikayla Hauck (Cottage Grove) and Megan Growt (De Pere) all tied with a score of 159. The three players went to extra holes. All the players made par on hole #1 on the Lakes Course. The girls then went onto play the 9th hole, which is a par 5. Kayla made a 15 foot birdie putt on the second playoff hole (#9) to win! Mikayla and Megan needed to break the tie between them because the winner of the Invite receives and exemption to the Cup Team in 2016. Since Kayla graduated this year and will not be able to play in 2016 the exemption goes to the second place girl. Mikayla and Megan played three more playoff holes before Mikayla made a birdie on hole #1 to break the tie for second place.
The boys division was just as close. Emmet Herb (Middleton) lead after round round one with a 3-under par 69. He then went on to shoot 75 in round two to hang onto the win. He held off Christopher Colla (Fond du Lac) by one shot and Jacob Michel (Lodi) by two shots.
