Patrick Welch of Providence, Rhode Island and Cameron Giles of Acton, Massachusetts recorded rounds of 1-under par 71 to claim Medalist honors at the 2012 Stan Trojanowski Northern Junior Qualifier, which was played Monday, July 16th at Simsbury Farms Golf Course in Simsbury, Connecticut.
Conducted by the Tournament Committee, the Boys Qualifier is designed to give junior golfers an opportunity to "play their way in" to the Stan Trojanowski Northern Junior Championship. A total of twelve players earned an invitation to compete in the 2012 Northern Junior, which will be held July 24th – 25th at Ellington Ridge Country Club in Ellington, Connecticut.
On a day where fast and firm conditions were the story, Patrick Welch of Providence, Rhode Island, was first to post his round of 1-under par 71. A 2018 graduate, Patrick was the youngest competitor in the qualifier and will also become the youngest player to compete in the Stan Trojanowski Northern Junior Championship. Patrick recorded birdies on Holes #1, #3 and #9 to make the turn at 3-under par. He would go on to finish the day at 1-under par and secure his place in the Championship.
Quite the opposite, Cameron Giles of Acton, Massachusetts began his day with a double on the par-4 3rd hole. He then proceeded to birdie 3 of his next 4 holes, including the difficult par-3 4th hole. Cameron made the turn onto the back nine at even par, and played steady golf from then on, recording a bogey free 1-under par 35.
