Staub and Edmonds Capture Don Law Golf Academy Junior Championship
Boynton Beach native Nicklas Staub has become one of South Florida’s top junior golfers over the past two years. The 14 year old has found himself atop the leader board frequently, and this weekend was no different. Staub opened up round one with a 2-under-par 70 to find himself tied for the lead with Port St. Lucie native Daisuke Nakano. Staub battled tough conditions on Sunday as winds reached 25 mph and rain passing through the course on and off throughout the round. Despite the tough elements, Staub still managed to put together a final round 1-under-par 71 to capture the Overall Boy’s Title. Palm Beach native Allan Kournikova would take home the boy’s 13-15 age division title, while Nakano would take home the boy’s 16-18 age division title.
Laura Edmonds moved to Weston, FL 2 months ago. During that time she managed to win her first Challenge Tour event last month, and this weekend she managed to capture her first Championship Tour event to prove she can hang with the section’s top junior golfers. Edmonds, fired an opening round even-par 72 to put herself two strokes clear of Doral native Skylee Shin. Edmonds put together another even-par 72 on Sunday to capture the Overall Girl’s Title by 7 strokes.
