Ryan Jahr of Ocean Isle Beach, N.C. reigns victorious over a stacked field for the overall champion and winner of the Boys 16-18 age division with a score of 2-under-par, 142 total on Sunday at the Bojangles Junior Open at Cutter Creek Golf Club. Will Tharin of Rocky Mount, N.C. claims the top spot for the Boys 13-15 age division with a score of 1-under-par, 143 total. 

 

“So last week was my first TYGA win and I have been playing really well lately,” said Ryan Jahr. “It’s fun to keep the wins going. Once you get one it feels easier to get another.”

 

As the final round on Sunday was winding down and scores were being entered there seemed to be a looming uneasiness on the clubhouse patio as six scores were tied for the lead at 1-under-par and chances for playoff holes seemed inevitable. However, Ryan Jahr still had three holes left to play, No.16,17 and 18. 

 

Ryan Jahr started his final round on No.1 and played the outward nine even-par, 36, with a pair of bogeys and cancelling birdies. At this point in Jahr’s round he was tied with the leaders at 1-under-par. However, on the par-4 No.10 Jahr would miss his par putt and fall to even-par. 

 

“I started off really slow and got it back fast. I actually had two chip-ins today, which is not normal. It was nice and No.16 was one of them and it got me into the lead.” 

 

Jahr would not go out without a fight, he would make a birdie on the par-3 No.15 to hang in with the clubhouse leaders. Then on the par-4 No.16 Jahr would chip-in from the fringe for the second time that day for a birdie. 

 

“On No.18 I knew that my 4 footer was huge. I tried to zone out everyone around the green and it was a relief when I saw the ball drop for a par.”

 

Will Tharin was in that group of anxious players in the clubhouse at 1-under-par, 143 total. Although Tharin was competing in the Boys 13-15 division he was also eligible for a chance to claim the overall champion title as well. 

 

Tharin managed to string together a brilliant final round scorecard with two birdies and only one bogey on his front nine, 1-under-par, 35. His inward nine he also shot a 1-under-par, 35 with four birdies and three bogeys. 

 

“My putting was really good today. I had to make a lot of 10 footers today, and I did.” Tharin said. “I was nervous but was not checking the scores at all, but I played well during my final round so that's good.”

 

Colin Salema of Matthews, N.C. finished in second place for the boys 13-15 division and Ethan Paschal of Fayetteville, N.C., Benjamin Chase of Charlotte, N.C. and Cornell Beans of Charlotte, N.C. all tied for third for the boys 13-15 division. 

 

Tharin was one of five individuals who tied for the overall second place at 1-under-par, 143 total. Davis Delille of High Point, N.C., Gray Mitchum of Winterville, N.C., Jack Wieler of Waxhaw, N.C. and Calvin Hawkins of Lexington, N.C. all finished tied for second place for the boys 16-18 division.
