College Station, Texas – Daniel Moon shoots 2-under 69 in the Final Round to win the Spring Preview’s Boys 15-18 Division at The Golf Club at Texas A&M. Mimi Burton captured the Girls 12-18 Division, while Reese Roberts won in the Boys 14 & Under Division.
Winners: Temple’s Daniel Moon trailed by four strokes heading into Sunday’s Final Round. He finished with rounds of 70-69 to get to 3-under 139 overall and two strokes ahead of the field. Mimi Burton of Austin captured the Girls 12-18 Division after shooting consecutive rounds of 2-over 73. She made four birdies on Sunday and five in total over 36 holes to win by one stroke and claim her first LJT victory. Reese Roberts of Dallas won the Boys 14 & Under Division after shooting 3-under 68 in the Final Round and erasing a five-stroke deficit. Roberts had five birdies in his final 18 holes and only one double-bogey en route to finishing at 3-over 145 overall.
Top Finishers: Tomek Pickrell posted a 5-under 66 in the blistery winds and finished tied for second in the Boys 15-18 Division along with Daniel Zou and Nathan Ty Pheng. Andrew Tan and Jacob King finished tied for sixth, while Tyler Gardner, Eston Duff, Joe Stover and Xing Luo tied for seventh. In the Girls 12-18 Division, Maelynn Kim finished second, while Kate Tilma, Jiyu Han and Avery Blake tied for third.

In the Boys 14 & Under Division, Elijah Estonilo and Coltrane Mittag finished tied for second, while Eli Walker Campbell finished fourth and Brooks Harper finished fifth.
Weather: Sunday’s weather mimicked Saturday’s weather with temperatures up around 80 degrees and winds consistently blowing around 20 miles per hour with gusts upwards of 35 mph. The sun shined a little more than the previous day, but the wind added bite to the golf course.
Host Course: The Golf Club at Texas A&M is hosting the Spring Preview for the first time in the event’s 16-year history. The club took on a $5 million renovation in 2013 and Texas A&M’s own Jeff Blume handled the redesign. The par-71 course is playing at around 6,700 yards in the Boys 15-18 Division, 6,300 yards in the Boys 14 & Under Division and 5,800 yards in the Girls 12-18 Division.
Tournament History: The Spring Preview field was increased to 120 players in 2021 after seeing more than 250 players sign up. Past champions of this event include William Zalatoris, Maddie Szeryk, Stratton Nolen, Brad Dalke, Nathan Weant, Brendan Redfern, Travis Vick, Julia Beck, Cole Hammer, Hailee Cooper, Kyle Hogan, Turner Hosch and Hanna Alberto.
Next Up: The Legends Junior Tour heads to Waco on March 12-14 for the Texas Cup Invitational. Ridgewood Country Club is hosting the first Major event for the Boys 15-18 Division in 2021 and the 84-player field will be set on March 3.
