Challenge at Highland Meadows Boys 10-12 Winner: Brayden Bozak
Brayden Bozak who resides in Littleton Co wins again for the youngest Boys 10-12 division. Consistent play allowed him to win by 10 strokes. He is joined by Dillon Stewart of nearby Ft Collins who had the shot of the weekend sinking a 40 footer for second and Boulder CO resident Freddie Gluck was thrilled to take third.
Local Littleton golfer Brayden Bozak was tied for the lead with Elisandro Aragon who resides in nearby Highlands Ranch Colorado. They both shot an 88 for the first round but Brayden was able to get his first win since he has advanced from the Mini Tour. His final score was 88-81. Elisandro has an 88-85 and they are joined by Tyler Mulligan from Parker Colorado with a 90-84. Tyler Findlow from Parker Colorado just missed the top three scoring a 92-83 for the Boys 10-12 division. Glen Ullin North Dakota’s Gehrig Geiss is a youngster on the move. He rounds out the top five.
There was a tie for first place in the Boys 10-12 division between Cade Kilkenny and Brayden Bozak, both from neighboring cities in CO. A sudden death playoff determined the winner. Brayden got an eagle on Pine Creek’s very tough hole #1 to win for his division. Brayden had a three shot lead the first day shooting an 81. The second day he shot just two strokes higher, which gave room for Cade to move up the leaderboard. Dillon Stewart played aggressively and finished only two strokes behind the leaders, shooting his lowest tournament scores of the season, 83, 83 for a combined total of 166.
