Stephenson Goes Wire to Wire in Bojangles

Stephenson Goes Wire-to-Wire in Bojangles Junior Title Defense
Patrick Stephenson finished three-under-par to secure the Bojangles Junior

 

Snow Hill, N.C. (June 4-5, 2016) –Final round results from the 2nd Bojangles Junior Open hosted by Cutter Creek GC in Snow Hill, N.C on Sunday, June 5, 2016 (6,965yards, par 36-36--72, Course/Slope Rating: 73.9/141).

A steady wind throughout the final round helped keep the 94 players cooler than yesterday, but proved to be difficult to manage on the course. Patrick Stephenson of Four Oaks N.C. conquered the wind, the course, and the entire field on his way to defending his title. The East Carolina University commit dropped a stroke early on the par-3 third and appeared to be in additional trouble after misjudging the wind on his approach into No. 4. The high school senior chipped in from below the green to reverse his fortunes. “I only had 130 yards in but I left it short. It was a pretty easy chip into the wind and it rolled right in so that was a nice recovery,” Stephenson said. He followed that up with another birdie on No. 5. A bogey on the eighth brought Stephenson back to even on the front side and decreased his lead to two strokes. Stephenson bogeyed No. 10 but maintained his two stroke advantage. Pars proved to be key as Stephenson managed to par his way to No. 17 and extend his lead to three shots. He had a three stroke lead heading into No. 18 but he was not privy to that information. “I was pretty sure if I made par I would win so I played it safe. I couldn’t quite make my birdie putt but I was happy with a par there.” Stephenson said. “I knew if I came here and played well I would have a good chance. It is always nice to shoot a few under par in a tournament.”

Jake Rutter of Winston-Salem N.C., used a stellar back nine to climb into second place overall and in the Boys’ 17-18 Division. The high school junior’s two-under-par back nine was highlighted by a chip-in birdie on No. 14. Jimbo Stanley of Raleigh, N.C. and Jacob Lowe of Angier, N.C. shared third in the Boys’ 17-18 Division.

Grayson Wotnosky of Wake Forest N.C., who was also in the final group, was one of the only players in contention to stay in the hunt throughout the front nine. The rising high school freshman bogeyed two of his first three holes on the back nine to fall further behind Stephenson. Wotnosky gave himself multiple good looks at birdie down the stretch but could not get anything to fall. “It just was not my day,” Wotnosky explained in the scoring tent. He did play well enough to win the Boys’ 15-16 Division and finish third overall. Britt Stroud of Raleigh, N.C., shot the low round of the day with an even-par 72 to finish second in the division. Dalton Mauldin of Sanford, N.C., and Michael Childress of Salisbury N.C., tied for third in the division.

Whit Edwards of Greensboro, N.C. used a two-under-par front nine to propel himself to victory in the Boys’ 13-14 Division. Zach Brown of Bermuda Run, N.C. came in second place. Blake Brantley of Winston Salem, N.C. cut five strokes off his first round to nab third place in the division.
