Player of the Week: Janie Jackson

Monday, August 9, 2010

Janie Jackson, of Huntsville, Ala., shot 2-under 211 (73-71-67) at the Vanderbilt Legends Club’s South Course in Franklin, Tenn., to win the AJGA’s Franklin Junior by one shot.

Jackson, 16, eagled the par-5 18th hole in the final round after an hour and a half rain delay. She had put her second shot to 6 feet before the horn blew for weather, and drained the putt when she returned to the course. This is Jackson’s second career AJGA win.
