Monday, May 25, 2009
Daniel Berger shot 3-under 69 Monday to win the FCWT National Championship at PGA National Golf Club in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.
Berger, of Key Biscane, Fla., is No. 140 in the Golfweek/Titleist Junior Rankings. He held off Andrew Goodman of Palm City, Fla., who shot 71.
Poland’s Mateusz Jedrzejczyk, China’s Zhong Yang Fu and Germany’s Peter Ganser tied for third.
The boys’ 16-18 division was shorted to 18 holes due to inclement weather.
Ian Mankoff of Lake Forest, Ill., and Clancy Waugh of North Palm Beach, Fla., were the co-champions of the 13-15 division. Both finished at even-par 144 for the tournament. Waugh carded 71 – the low round of the day – to earn and share of first place. Mankoff was 1 over with four birdies in the final round. Both are in the Class of 2013.
New Mexico’s Benjamin Albin totaled a two-round score of 152 to take home the title in the 11-12 division. The 12-year-old Santa Fe native finished with a final-round 72 to win by five shots.
