Stewart wins HJGT event at Bear Trace

CROSSVILLE — The Hurricane Junior Golf Tour made the journey to Crossville to host the Major Championship at Bear Trace.

The tournament was hosted by Bear Trace at Cumberland Mountain on Oct. 19-20 and was ranked by the National Junior Golf Scoreboard. Winners in all four divisions received an invite to the HJGT’s 2013 Tour Championship.

Top 20 finishers also received considerably more points than a standard HJGT event, points that go towards all end-of-the year honors, which include All-HJGT teams, state teams and points for the Hurricane Cup.

With this being a major championship, players in all divisions were allowed to use a caddie.

Boys 15-18: Logan Stewart of Crossville, TN trailed Chase Cale of Greenville, SC, by one stroke after round one and came back on round two to shoot the only total score under par in the Boys 15-18 division. Stewart started Sunday’s round strong by birdieing four holes on the front nine; however, he triple bogeyed 10, double bogeyed 13 and bogeyed 14.

Stewart then battled through adversity and birdied three of the final four holes to hold off Cale. Cale finished the weekend with an eagle, three birdies and 24 pars.

Finishing in a three-way tie for third was Spencer Cross from Sevierville, Allen Hamilton from Louisville, KY, and Russ Quinlivan from Huntsville, AL, all finishing with a two-day total of 151.

Girls 15-18: Meredith Moir from Louisville, KY, had the best score each day for the 15-18 Girls and won by 22 strokes. Moir led the division with an average score of 5.1 on par five holes and a 4.6 average on par four holes. Moir also won the EFX Birdies Challenge with 3 birdies throughout the tournament.

Finishing 22 strokes behind Moir was Blythe Scrivner from Powell, who shot rounds of 91 and 93. Scrivner had one birdie and 10 pars for the weekend. Rounding out the top was Jenna McGuire from Cresent Springs, KY, with rounds of 98 and 95. McGuire had seven pars, one birdie and led the field in par three performance with a 3.5 scoring average.

Boys 11-14: Luke Scealf and his rainbow-colored Loudmouth pants was victorious at Bear Trace this weekend as he shot one under-par 143 to hold off Jay Kirchdorfer. Scealf dominated the par 5 holes by birdieing six out of the eight holes for a 4.4 average score.

Scealf also led the division with a 2.6 average score on par 3 holes. The lead swung between Scealf and Kirchdorfer throughout Sunday’s round, but Scealf held on for good after birdieing the 15th and 16th holes. Alex Markham from Dacula, GA placed for the second straight tournament, after winning the Major at Pebble Creek last weekend.

Girls 11-14: Lizzie Loy from Jamestown, KY, started the final round two strokes behind Skylar Thompson, but was able to come back and hold on for the championship. Loy and Thompson, from Buford, GA, were going back and forth throughout all of Sunday’s round and neither was able to get a comfortable lead over the opponent.

Loy was leading Thompson by only one stroke going into the final hole and was able to hold on to win the Major. Thompson improves from her third-place finish at Pebble Creek last weekend to earn second here. The third-place finisher was Ryan Bender from Louisville, KY, with rounds of 103-95.
