RESULTS: 2022 NOPGA Junior Series – Black Brook


High-Fives at the NOPGA Junior Series event at Black Brook

Northern Ohio PGA Junior GolfNear perfect weather conditions and smiling families led to a great event at Black Brook Golf Club today. The event featured both the 18-Hole Junior Series as well as the 9-Hole Futures Tour. It was delightful to see the families on the golf course enjoying their Friday in the sun together. Thanks Tim Arsperk, PGA for hosting our juniors.

In the Boys 16-19 Division, Matthew Mullen from Sidney, OH ran away with the lead by four shots coming into the clubhouse with a one over par, 72 for the day. “The key to my success today on the golf course was keeping the ball and play and playing smart,” said Mullen. He followed this by claiming that he did not hit many greens, but his chipping helped him immensely throughout the day. When asked about something exciting that happened in his round, he said that he had made back-to-back birdies on the front nine.

In the Girls 16-19 Division, Ella Wong took home the win coming into the clubhouse with a solid two over par 73. Wong also ran away with the lead in her division, winning by a grand total of nine strokes. “The key to my success today was being able to make a few birdies after starting +3 through 3,” said Wong. She said that her putting helped her a lot throughout her round, as well as her ability to hit all nine greens in regulation on the back nine.

In the Boys 11-15 Division, Daniel Gambone also ran away with a one under par 70 to win the event. “I made a really long putt for eagle on one of the par 5’s that helped a lot,” Gambone said. He also said that he was able to hit a lot of greens in regulation which gave him the ability to make a few runs at birdie.

In the Girls 11-15 Division, Gracyn Vidovic won her division by one shot, shooting a total of 82 for the event. In her interview she said that she putted really well and wanted to thank her dad and grandpa for coming out to support her.

On the 9-Hole Futures Tour for the boys we had Nicholas Pollack from the 8-11 group and Lincoln Miller from the 12-16 group win their respective divisions, with a 37 for Miller and 38 for Pollack.

When Pollack was interviewed about his win he said, “I practiced a lot and went out there and had fun.” In Milller’s interview he said, “I hit all of my fairways and made a lot of long putts.”

Anna Phillips from the 8-11 group and Elena Varga from the 12-16 group won their respective girls divisions, with a 36 for Phillips and a 42 for Varga. In Varga’s interview she said that her success was contributed to her ability to stay consistent and patient. In Phillips’ interview, she stated that not focusing on her score helped her quite a bit throughout her nine-hole round.
