Colt Martin of Pendleton was the boys winner and Kerington Lamb of Easley was the girls champion at the Upstate Junior played at Smithfields in Easley.
Martin needed a three hole playoff before he was able to top Brandon Masters for the boys 16-18 title and overall championship.
Lamb started the final round with the lead and shot her best round in a tournament carding an even par 72 the second day to win the girls overall title.
“This is the best round I have ever had here and the first time I have shot even par in a tournament,” said the girls champion.
Lamb didn’t get off to a fast start, instead a double bogey on the second hole dropped her out of the lead.
“There were some tough competitors out there and I was glad I could stay close to them especially after the way I started,” she said.
The Easley High School golfer made up the shots she lost and by the end of the round had gotten back to even to hold a big lead over the rest of the field.
“This is my home course and to get my first big win here is great. I hit everything pretty solid today and after a bad start I was really glad to pull it together and win,” said Lamb.
Emma Reid finished second with a 159 total while Ashlee Richardson finished at 160 for third place.
Martin trailed Brandon Masters and Tanner Pilgrim by a shot going into the final round. The Pendleton High School golfer shot the best final round in the boys division. He posted a 3-over par 75 for a 148 total.
Masters added a 76 to his first round 72 to end regulation play tied with Martin. Pilgrim fell off the pace and would finish tied for second in the boys 13-14 year old division.
Martin and Masters each birdied the first playoff hole and parred the second. On the third hole Martin was able to claim the Upstate Junior title with a par.
“I really wasn’t playing very well coming into this tournament, but I have always played well here,” said the winner. “I was hoping I could get my game back out here. I still didn’t play the way I wanted to, but I played well enough to win,” he said.
The boys 13-14 year old championship was won by Zach Lawter. He shot two rounds of 76 for a one shot victory over Will Brooks and Pilgrim.
The boys 10-12 year old division title was won by Nicholas Smith with Robert Thompson finishing second.
The girls 13-14 year old champion was Emily Dunlap. The Mauldin golfer shot rounds of 75 and 74 for a 149 total and a five shot victory over Katie Whitfield of Clemson. Elle Johnson of Spartanburg finished third in the age group division.
