Kingsland, Usner and Vesely Win North Texas Classic
FLOWER MOUND, Texas – Zach Kingsland of Austin outlasted a crowded leaderboard to win the North Texas Classic. Kingsland’s final round 3-under 69 was just enough to secure his first victory in the LJT Boys 15-18 Division this year.
In the Boys 14 & Under Division Jack Usner of The Woodlands fired a final round 6-under 66 to claim the division title. Austin’s Kaylee Vesely posted a final round 4-under 68 to win the Girls 12-18 Division.
Kingsland started the final round one shot back of first round leader Thomas Bockholt III. Knowing that he needed to make up some ground, he started off hot with birdies on the first two holes. Kingsland would go on to shoot 3-under 33 on the front side and close with an even-par 36 on the back to get the win.
Finishing one shot back was Junwoo Park of Farmers Branch. Park started the day tied for second with Kingsland. Park posted a steady round of 2-under 70 to finish one shot off the lead. Lake Jackson’s Jacob Borow used a final round score of 1-under 70 to finish in third place. San Antonio’s Patrick Kahanek finished fourth at 3-under, while Matthew Watkins, Connor Adams, David Harrison and Bockholt finished tied for fifth at 2-under.
Jack Usner came from three shots back on Sunday to claim the title. Usner knew he had some ground to make up and came to play in the final round. He used eight birdies and a back nine score of 5-under 31 to win by three shots over first round leader Matthew Foster.
Dallas’ Foster shot a final round even-par 72 to finish in second place. Tyler Lee of Dallas recorded a final round score of 3-over 75 to hold onto a third place finish.
Kaylee Vesely of Austin ran away in the Girls 12-18 Division on Sunday thanks to her final round score of 4-under 68. After starting the day with a seven shot lead, Vesely never looked back and pushed her margin of victory to an impressive 12 shots.
This is Vesely’s second win of the year on the Legends Junior Tour.
Meagan Winans of Richardson and Melena Barrientos of Plano tied for second in the division at 147 overall. Winans shot a 1-under 71 on Sunday, while Barrientos shot a final round 1-over 73. Three players tied for fourth to round out the top five in the division.
The Legends Junior Tour would like to thank Bridlewood Golf Club for hosting the North Texas Classic. The Legends Junior Tour travels down to College Station, October 13-14 at The Campus Course at Texas A&M for the Fall Classic.
