Winners: Trevor Algya shot 5-under 67 in the final round to get to 6-under overall and into a three-way tie atop the Boys Division. The sudden-death playoff was held on Lantana’s 18th hole and his birdie on the second playoff hole secured his victory. Sophie Biediger clinched her first victory with the Legends Junior Tour after capping off a wire-to-wire victory in the Girls Division. She finished at 5-under-par and eight strokes ahead of the field. Biediger made 11 birdies in 54 holes.

Golf Course: Lantana Golf Club was founded in 2002 and the course was designed by Jay and Carter Morrish. The par-72 layout is playing to almost 6,800 yards in the Boys Division and 5,800 yards in the Girls Division. Inspired by the beauty of Texas Hill Country, the course maximizes the wooded terrain and natural beaty of the land. The signature hole on the course is the par-3 15th
Weather: The weather turned out to be great on Tuesday with temperatures in the mid-80s and the sun shining throughout the afternoon. The wind was steady around 10 miles per hour.
Tournament Format: The Collegiate Preview is a 54-hole stroke-play event for players ages 14-19 that have an active membership with the Texas Junior Golf Alliance. The event is divided into two divisions: Boys and Girls.
Texas Junior Golf Alliance: The Alliance is a joint venture between the Texas Golf Association, Northern and Southern Texas PGA and Houston Golf Association. The goal of the Alliance was to allow junior golfers a clear path to the best tournaments in Texas. Each of the three tier-two organizations (STPGA, NTPGA, HGA) conduct events that serve as qualifiers into the statewide tier-one events run by the Legends Junior Tour (LJT). This allows players to compete in local events in which they can earn spots to play in statewide tournaments.
Next Up: The Legends Junior Tour heads to Oakmont Country Club for the Lanny Wadkins Junior Championship on July 12-13. Qualifying for the 95th Texas Junior Amateur is going on across the state and the Texas Junior Amateur returns to The Clubs of Kingwood on July 26-28.
