2011 Junior Girls’ Amateur Results




Thompson Crowned Champion at 56th PNGA Junior Girls’ Amateur Championship

Molalla, Ore. (August 11, 2011) – Morgan Thompson, a 17-year old from Tualatin, Ore. capped off a great week of golf today and was crowned the champion at the 56th Pacific Northwest Junior Girls’ Amateur Championship at Arrowhead Golf Club in Molalla, Ore.

Thompson, the No. 2 seed, got off to a hot start this morning and opened with birdies on 3 of the first 4 holes to take a 2-up lead into the stretch. Holes 5-10 were halved, then Thompson took the 11th hole with a birdie and increased her lead to 3-up. Strankman made a great attempt at a comeback by winning the 12th hole, then the 16th hole with a birdie, but was unable to convert a long two-putt par on the 17th hole, where Thompson calmly tapped in for par and a 2 and 1 victory.

Thompson was playing in her last junior championship this week and will be heading to college at Cal. Berkley next week.
