Roets, Sealy Find
Riches in Puerto Rico
Jason Roets of South Africa survived a
sudden-death playoff on Monday to win the in-
augural AJGA Puerto Rico Junior Open. Monifa
Sealy of Trinidad and Tobago won the girls’
division at Trump International Golf Club in Rio
Grande, Puerto Rico.
Julian Lerda of Buenos Aires, Argentina, and
Roets finished at 1-over-par 217 on the par-72
Championship course to force extra holes. When
Lerda’s six-foot par putt skirted the hole, Roets
rolled in a three-footer to seal the victory.
“I don’t really have the words,” Roets said.
“It’s a great feeling.”
With his victory, Roets earned
a sponsor’s exemption to the PGA
George Cunningham of Litchfield Park, Ariz.,
finished one shot back in a tie for third at 2-over-
par 218. Emiliano Grillo of Argentina finished
fifth at 3-over-par 219.
