SNJGA Members Dominate Nevada State Junior Amateur

It was another terrific tournament for members of the Southern Nevada Junior Golf Association. All four winners of the Nevada State Junior Amateur at Boulder Creek were SNJGA golfers.–By Brian Hurlburt, www.lasvegasgolfinsider.com

Yet again, the hard work and dedication of the membership is showing up with these results on a local, state, regional and national levels. And a special thanks to Boulder Creek for hosting this prestigious tournament.

Winning titles were RJ Arone (Boys 15-18), Eunice Han (Girls 15-18), Tripp Hildreth (Boys 13-14) and Emmerson Hinds (Girls 13-14).

Han won the Girls 15-18 division with a stellar total of 4-under 140 to defeat Natalie Cheong by two strokes. Dakota Tallent was third at 2-over par.

Han had two birdies in her final three holes.

And Han summed up her week on Instagram:

“I had the opportunity to win the Nevada State Junior Amateur championship today with a two day total of 140. (73/67) thank u to snjga and to boulder creek for allowing me to play here in wonderful conditions. next stop: world stars!”

Arone, a Bishop Gorman golfer, had a blistering two rounds of golf and finished at 11-under 133 and win the Boys 15-18 division by seven shots over Caden Gambini. Lukas Taggart was third.

Arone played a four-hole stretch five-under-par with three birdies followed by an eagle andΒ said it was the best golf he has played in a tournament.

Arone via Instagram:

“Caught a W in the Nevada State Junior Amateur with a 2 day total of -11 and by far my best tournament yet. I’d like to thank snjga for running a great tournament and Boulder creek for letting us play there. I’d also like to thank my fellow competitors, it was a lot of fun out there and it was because of you guys, and to my parents for making this all possible. Onto the next.”

Hinds won the Girls 13-14 division finished at even par to run away with the victory.

Hinds had five birdies the second day through 17 holes before double bogeying the 18th hole, her only blemish on the card.

“This one was on the calendar for a year. There were big nerves because she wanted to protect her house. -3 under today, even for the tournament, and a resounding win. Thank you to @snjrgolf to Boulder Creek … for making the place look and play great.”–Hinds from Instagram.

Hildreth also played outstanding golf to finish at 6-under 138 and four shots clear of Jack Cook and win the boys 13-14 division. Elijah Marshall was third.

Hildreth birdied three holes (5th, 6th and 16th) both days in his victory. One other hole, the 13th, he went eagle-birdie.
