Junior golfers kick off 2013 Tour in the Rockies
The Aspen Times
The 2013 Tour in the Rockies is off and swinging.
The junior golf summer series at River Valley Ranch Golf Club in Carbondale started Wednesday with the opening rounds of pay.
“We had 21 juniors playing in our first event,” said Alden Richards, director of golf and instruction at River Valley Ranch. He’s also the longtime Aspen High School girls golf coach.
“In its ninth year, the Tour in the Rockies is designed for juniors who would like competitive-play opportunities in the Roaring Fork Valley,” Richards said.
The tour is played at River Valley Ranch each Wednesday evening for juniors age 12 and older.
They will play a seven-week season, playing for point and medals.
“The Tour Championship, on July 31, will determine which junior golfer will take home the Tour Championship Trophy,” Richards said.
In the opening round of play, Lauren Murphy led the way with a 39.
Dolores Sharaf was next at 48.
Mae Sharaf shot 65.
In the boys 12-and-under, JR Principe led with a 45. He was one shot ahead of Jack Pevny and Coulter Zowig (46).
Derek Leydecker led the boys 13-and-older division. Will Pember was next at 44.
