Golf News Congratulations go out to the Derby City All Stars. The team won the 2018 KPGA PGA Jr. League Championship this past weekend! The team competed at Quail Chase Golf Course on Saturday’s stroke play qualifier and shot a 6 under par total for 9 holes. That was the low score for the Pool they were in and advanced them into the Semi Finals on Sunday! The morning match was played against the All Stars from Western Kentucky. It was a tight match throughout and ended in a 6-6 tie. This forced a sudden death playoff to reach the Championship match. Abe Williams and Andrew Mainka from Louisville CC were called on to play the playoff hole and made birdie to beat Western Kentucky! In the Finals we faced Triple Crown and were neck and neck again. Gage Mizuguchi from Louisville CC hit their approach shot on the 9th hole to about 4 feet and Luke Daley drilled the putt to seal the 6 ½ point to 5 ½ point victory and the 2018 Trophy. We will now head to Olive Branch CC in Mississippi on September 8th and 9th! We will be competing against Triple Crown again as well as The Gulf States Section representative and the Tennessee Section representative. We will play all three teams and the team with the best record will win the Regional Final! There are 12 Regional Finals being contested across the country, representing all 41 of the PGA of America Sections plus 7 at large bids. It is humbling to note the Kentucky Section received one of these At Large bids due to the tremendous participation in the section. The winners of these 12 Regionals will head to Scottsdale AZ in November for the National Championship! We are so excited to have such a great group of kids on this team. They only had 5 days to meet and get to know each other before they went out and played over the weekend. They have handled themselves with superior class and character and we are excited to see where this journey leads!

The Derby City team is made up of the following players: Big Spring CC: Luke Daley, Abe Williams, Liam O’Grady and Jake McMahan Louisville CC: Andrew Mainka and Gage Mizuguchi Audubon CC: Aidan Riggs Wildwood CC: Luke Ebel Hurstbourn CC: Houston Hall and Jacob Holzer Just a side note – Andrew Mainka and Abe Williams shot 12 under as a team for 19 Holes! Andrew, in a fit of panic, faced his fears by playing in the playoff with Abe and hit the approach shot to about 4 feet and made the putt to win our morning match! It was an incredible shot, considering his very first shot of the day was a shank off the 7th tee!
