Stephenson Sails to Victory
Future Pirate Wins TYGA Bojangles Junior Open by Five Shots

Snow Hill, NC -- Final results from the 2015 TYGA Bojangles Junior Open at Cutter Creek Golf Club on June 6-7, 2015.
6,975 Yards, Par 72, 73.9/141 
 
Patrick Stephenson of Four Oaks, NC shot back to back under par rounds to capture the 2015 TYGA Bojangles Junior Open hosted by Cutter Creek Golf Club in Snow Hill, NC. Stephenson, a rising senior in high school, started the final round with a one shot lead over Allen Smith III of Durham, NC. The future East Carolina University Pirate stated after round one that his focus for the final round was on making pars.  From the get go, that changed as he hit it to three feet helping him make birdie on his first hole. Stephenson went on to make four more birdies on the day, “I was just hitting my wedges really close, I just happened to make some birdies instead of pars.” Stephenson’s second round, 68, helped him cruise to a five shot victory over Corey Wilson, of Raleigh, NC who finished at even par for the tournament.
 
Wilson, the only other player to post red number, finished solo second in the Boys’ 17-18 division. Joey Funderburg of Wilmington, NC, Walter Brinker of Sanford, NC and Dylan Lukes of Chapel Hill, NC finished tied for third at 149. Brian Chen of Cary, NC took home first place in the Boys’ 14-15 division beating out Chris Ford of Matthews, NC and Jimbo Stanley of Raleigh, NC by a single stroke.
 
Peter Fountain of Raleigh, NC finished birdie, birdie on two of the toughest closing holes in the state to claim first place in the competitive Boys’ 13-14 division.  Chris Kim of Cary, NC started strong but was unable to keep his momentum going as he finished with a back nine, 40, to place second. Grayson Wotnosky of Wake Forest, NC took home the third place trophy finishing with a total score of 154 to Fountain’s 149 and Kim’s 151.
The TYGA would like to extend a special thank you to Cutter Creek Golf Club Superintendent,  Drew Ramsey, and his crew who worked tirelessly to get the course in top shape after 6 inches of rain the day before the event.  We also would like to thank Burt Williams, Cutter Creek Golf Club Head Professional, and his staff for making the first TYGA Bojangles Junior Open a success.
 
 
The TYGA Bojangles Open is a first year event that was open to all North Carolina junior boys ages 13-18. All players played from the same tees at 6,975 yards.
