Jansen Smith Wins 91st Texas State Junior Championship

Jansen Smith of San Angelo stood in the middle of the par-5 18th fairway at Summit Rock Golf Club. He shared the lead of the 91st Texas State Junior Championship with John Keefer. Seventy-two yards separated Smith’s third shot from the flag. His approach landed on the front edge of the green and skipped toward the hole. The ball dropped. The small gallery surrounding the 18th hole erupted. Smith’s walk-off hole out was enough to win the Texas State Junior Championship by one stroke at a total of 8-under par.  Read more
