Hoff off to great start . . .
Windsor’s Will Hoff, playing in his first AGJA tournament on his home turf, made an impressive showing recently.
Hoff, a member of the Windsor High golf team, carded a 3-under-par 141, including a 5-under 67 in the first round at Windsor GC. It was the lowest round of the tournament. His efforts included an eagle on the par-5 No. 4 hole during the first round.
“It means a lot to have such a great event so close to home,” said Will. “If it was any other way I wouldn’t have played in it or had this opportunity. I really hope this win launches my junior golf career.”
Runner-up to Hoff was Parker Bond of Phoenix, Ariz., who shot a 1-under-par 143, which featured seven birdies over 36 holes.
The Girls Division winner was Gracie McGovern of Scottsdale, Ariz., who captured her first AJGA title and shot the low second-round score and finished with a 3-over-par 147.
The Girls Division runner-up was Gabriella Eifrig of Newport Beach with seven birdies on her way to a total of 5-over-par 149.
The AJGA Preview at Windsor was held March 18-20, 2022, just the second AJGA event held at the club. The 36-hole, stroke-play tournament had a 78-player field and was played at 6,518 yards for the Boys Division and 5,630 yards for the Girls Division.
