Hoodkroft Team has Lead After Round One of Junior Team Championship

June 21st, 2021

Francestown, NH- It was a bright but windy day as the first round of the 2021 Junior Team Championship got underway at Crotched Mountain GC where the team of Jeremy Burke (Hoodkroft CC) and Sam Maurice (Hoodkroft CC) found themselves sitting on top of the leaderboard with their score of four over par, 75.

The team started out strong and kept their momentum going today. After making the turn at +2, the pair claimed the top spot on the leaderboard, and never gave it up. “We have played many times together on a team in this setting. We have played together almost everyday of the summer at Hoodkroft CC for the last three years” said Maurice when asked about why Burke and himself work so well together as a team.

This can be clearly seen as both team members contributed to the score pretty evenly through out the round today. Maurice carded two birdies on the front nine, and one on the back, which definitely boosts the team towards the top, but Burke was able to make some key saves with pars to help keep the team there. They were able to rely on each other to get the job done on each hole. With a thick tree line stretching down either side of many of the holes, going into the final round tomorrow the pair hopes to keep the ball in play and have fun as a team.

Burke and Maurice aren’t completely alone at the top. Only one stroke behind them are the team of Sam Timmer (Youth on Course) and Mitchell Cormier (Keene Country Club) with their score of five over par, 76. Both members contributed birdies, pars, and sometimes some key bogey saves to claim their spot.

With very different conditions from the dry heat and wind in the forecast, many groups will be looking to make their move to chase down the leaders, in the tight race for this year’s title. The Final Round of the 2021 Junior Team Championship will get underway at 8AM tomorrow morning.
