Good week for Lendl, Sorenson, Sutton
Thursday, August 13, 2009
A couple notes from around the country, and internationally:
• Daniela Lendl, No. 47 in the Golfweek/Titleist Junior Rankings, posted a 14-shot victory at the Connecticut Women’s Amateur Aug. 12. The 16-year-old shot a final-round 76 at H. Smith Richardson Golf Course in Fairfield, Conn., for a 2-over 218 total. She shot a course-record 68 in the second round.
• It’s been a good week for Michael Sorenson, an incoming freshman at the University of Wisconsin. Sorenson won the state junior by 10 shots last week, then finished second to Northeast Amateur champ Dan Woltman earlier this week in a U.S. Amateur qualifier at Kenosha (Wis.) Country Club.
• It looks like North Carolina State will have another succesful Canadian on its hands to complement NCAA champ Matt Hil. Incoming frosh Mitch Sutton won his second consecutive Canadian Junior Aug. 6. He finished second this week at the Canadian Amateur – seven shots in front of Hill. Sutton also won the Ontario Junior Boys’ Match Play July 24.
