A couple of girl golfers with Kingco connections, including a Mount Si player, took on some of the best youth girl golfers in the nation recently at a major junior tournament in Boise.
The Trusted Choice Big “I” Junior Golf Classic was held from July 29-Aug. 2, and it attracted a large number of top young golfers, including local high-school stars Katie Somers and Jordan Allyne.
Somers, a senior-to-be at Mount Si, struggled, shooting rounds of 80, 82, 80 and 78 for a total of 320, which earned her a 23rd-place finish. The first round on July 30 started out rough, with bogeys on two of her first four holes, then she double-bogeyed her sixth and seventh holes before settling down for a nice second nine.
On July 31, her 82 for a two-round total of 162 was just enough to make the cut. This round, like the first, also started out on a tough note, with bogeys on two of the first four holes. She birdied holes 10 and 13, but bogeyed five other holes in her ending nine. She also had three double bogeys in this round.
