Claggett Claims Texas Girls’ Invitational Victory
MONTGOMERY— Tillie Claggett won the Texas Girls’ Invitational with an overall score of 4-under 212 at Bentwater Yacht & Country Club’s Weiskopf Course on Sunday. The victory marks Claggett’s second victory with the Legends Junior Tour, but first major victory. She joins the likes of fellow champions Jaravee Boonchant, Maddie McCrary and Anne Chen as players with their names etched onto the Nez Muhleman Trophy.
The Woodlands-native was the only player under par and posted rounds of 71-68-73. She started her final round with a birdie on No. 2, but dropped a shot with a bogey on No. 9 to turn at 5-under overall. She made a birdie on the par-5 11th and finished with bogeys on holes 15 & 16 to get to 4-under and finish with four strokes ahead of the field.
The Texas Girls’ Invitational is a 54-hole stroke play event for girls that are members of the Texas Junior Golf Alliance. The event is one of the top-ranked tournaments in Texas.
Katy’s Maelynn Kim continued to improve her level of play as the tournament progressed. Starting the day three groups ahead of Claggett, Kim carded a final round 3-under 69 to finish in second place at even par 216. Kim was the only player under par in the final round and finished strong with three birdies in the final five holes.
Austin’s Darrelyn Webster finished third in the Texas Girls’ Invitational at 1-over 217. Webster matched her second round and posted a score of even-par 72 in the final round. Ashleen Kaur of Houston finished fourth in the event at 2-over 220. Cedar Park’s Jiyu Han and San Antonio’s Grace Jin both finished tied for fifth at 3-over 219, after matching final round scores of 5-over 77.
Yvonne Chamness of Austin finished in solo seventh at 4-over 220. Chaemin Kim of Austin and Sara Tomaszewski of Mexico finished tied for eight at 5-over 221, and San Antonio’s Lindsay Lee rounded out the top ten at 6-over 222.
Bentwater Yacht & Country Club hosted the Texas Girls’ Invitational for the sixth time in the tournament’s history. The event returned to the Weiskopf Course for the second year in a row. The course was designed by Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish and stretched out to 6,125 yards for the tournament.
The day started with temperatures in the mid to low 70’s and rose into the low 90’s by the end of play. The sun was shining all day and winds remain relatively calm; wavering between 6-10 mph throughout the round.
Next up for the Legends Junior Tour is the North Texas Classic at Tangle Ridge Golf Course in Grand Prairie. The North Texas Classic routinely features one of the best tournament fields on the LJT Open event schedule.
