Brett Windsor, who will be a junior this fall at Boonville High School, competed in the Missouri Golf Association's Jr. Amateur Stroke Play Championship, held Monday and Tuesday in Smithville at Paradise Pointe.
The 14-18 year old group played at the Posse Golf Course, while the girls division played the Outlaw Course.
On Monday, Windsor shot a 1 over par 73 to put himself in a tie for 10th place with 117 players participating. He played a solid round on Monday morning, and was a couple missed putts from shooting under par, and moving up the leader-board. Chase Hannah of Leawood, Kansas and Zac Dittmer of Kansas City each shot 3 under 69 to lead the field after Day 1. Windsor had three birdies, to go along with 11 pars and four bogeys.
On Tuesday, Windsor had the 1:20 p.m. tee time and got off to a slow start by playing the first five holes at 4 -over. He struggled with his driver and again missed a few putts. That would be the story of the round, along with the extreme afternoon heat. He had some difficulty hitting his driver consistently in a good position, and then missed some putts. He managed, after the slow start of playing the front 9 at 4 -over, to finish the back 9 at 1-over, for a total second round score of 77.
Windsor finished with a two day total of 6-over par 150. That placed him in a tie for 21st. Chase Hannah (University of Kansas signee) took home the first place trophy with a two-day total of 7-under par 137. Zac Dittmer shot 3-under 141 as runner-up. Windsor was a little disappointed in his finish, but had a good experience playing alongside a Mizzou signee (Alec Palen-Rogersville) and a K-State signee(JP Derksen-Blue Springs) in Tuesday's round. He went shot for shot with both. It was a good measure of his game, and he got a chance to compete against some of the best junior players in Missouri and Kansas.
