Monday, April 9, 2012
James Yoon, of Bradenton, Fla, shot 1-over 214 (72-71-71) at Innisbrook Resort & GC's Copperhead Course to win the TaylorMade-adidas Golf Junior at Innisbrook hosted by Sean O'Hair by two strokes. His 10-foot birdie putt on hole No. 18 in the final round secured the title.
“I worked really hard after the first and second round and made more putts in a tournament than I have in awhile,” Yoon said of his play during the tournament. “I hit the ball really well today, and hit about 16 or 17 fairways.”
Yoon, No. 10 in the Golfweek/Sagarin rankings for the class of 2012 is a 2011 second-team Rolex Junior All-American and has signed a letter of intent with University of California Berkeley.
