Gary Daniels, BERWYN, PA.
Daniels shot a final-round, 4-under 68 to win the Frank H. Chapman Memorial
Cup at Jericho National Golf Club in New Hope, Pa. Daniels hit 16 greens in
regulation and carded six birdies en route to his first Golf Association of Philadelphia victory in 32 years.
Latanna Stone, BRANDON, FLA.
The 10-year-old Stone qualified for the U.S. Women’s Amateur by shooting 70
at the Wanderers Club in Wellington, Fla. Stone, who trains under Charlotta
Sorenstam, sister of Annika and an LPGA winner in her own right, broke the
previous record for youngest qualifier by two years.
Ryan Graham, BUFFALO, WYO.
Graham had to fight until the very end of the Wyoming Amateur Championship
at Buffalo Golf Club to claim victory. A birdie on the final hole gave Graham a
2-under total of 214 after 54 holes, enough to cement a one-stroke victory over
Cameron Lindell, who held the lead entering the back nine of the final round.
Andrew Mason, HUNTINGDON VALLEY, PA.
Temple University alumnus Mason, an amateur, successfully defended his title
at the GAP Open Championship at Pine Valley Golf Club in Clementon, N.J.
Mason went 70-74 for a 4-over 144 to beat James Kania Jr., and Travis Deibert
at 6 over.
Richy Werenski, SOUTH HADLEY, MASS.
Werenski entered the final round of the Porter Cup at Niagara Falls Country
Club with a four-shot lead and never relinquished it. The 20-year-old’s consistent play over four rounds was key in his victory, carding only a single bogey
for the entire tournament on his way to a 17-under 263 total and a two-stroke
victory over runner-up Denny McCarthy.
