Eyre, Ly Earn 2019 Oregon Junior Stroke Play Titles

Brandon Eyre and Kyra Ly won their respective divisions at the Oregon Junior Stroke Play Championship played July 2-4 at OGA Golf Course in Woodburn.

The event was a three-day, 54-hole competition that included a cut after day one.

Eyre, from Salem, Ore., was the only boy to play all three rounds at even par or better, leading to a 6-under par finish (66-72-72-210). Eyre’s opening-day 66, complete with six birdies and 12 pars, was the low round of the week.

Mateo Fuenmayor (72-68-71-212) and Collin Hodgkinson (68-72-72-212), a pair of Beaverton products, each finished 4-under par. Fuenmayor, by rule of the USGA scorecard playoff method which can be used to determine ties, finished second because he had the best score on the last nine holes.

In the girls division it was Ly, of Portland, Ore., who held on to win by two strokes over Franca Polla, also of Portland.

Ly (71-70-75-216) fired an opening-day 71 and held a tie for the day one lead with Baylee Hammericksen (71-76-72-219) and Alexa Udom (71-75-74-220). Ly separated from the pack on day two carding a 2-under par 70, before finishing the event with a 3-over par 75 in Thursday’s final round.

Polla (75-74-69) posted the low round of the competition on the girl’s side with her 3-under par final round.

The Oregon Junior Golf major tournament circuit continues July 8-9 with the Central Willamette Junior Championship slated for play at both Willamette Valley Country Club and Arrowhead Golf Club.
