DeLuca and Tiefenbrunn Win Junior Amateur Age Divisions

Eureka, MO - The 15 and under and 13 and under divisions finished their championship today at Aberdeen Golf Club. It was a beautiful day for the second round of the 25th Metropolitan Junior Amateur. Coming into the second round, John DeLuca led the 15 and under division at even par with Owen Zastrow following behind at two-over par. In the 13 and under division, Houston Tiefenbrunn led after the first round at one-over par with Austin Tell in second at eight-over par. There were a combined fourteen players between the two divisions and all returned for round 2. 

The 15 and under boys took to the course first, starting at 7:00am. John DeLuca of Chesterfield came ready to put together another great round. DeLuca started his round with a par and a bogey, but bounced back to get his score into the red. With five birdies across the round, DeLuca was able to secure his spot at the top of the leaderboard at three-under (-3) par. Henry Gorin of Chesterfield was looking to better his round from the first day and did. Coming into the day at three-over par, Gorin shot a bogey-free back nine with three birdies to get to one-over par for the day. This would move him up the leaderboard in Round 2. Gorin would be the runner-up at four-over (+4) par and DeLuca would earn the champion title at three-under (-3) par. 


The 13 and under age division followed behind the 15 and under on the course. Houston Tiefenbrunn of Washington began the day with a four-shot lead over his competitors. Tiefenbrunn came back ready to stay on top and fired a second round of two-over par. With a total of three-over (+3) par, Tiefenbrunn earned the division champion trophy. Coming in behind him was Austin Telle of Kirkwood. Telle shot two strokes better in round two to bring his total score to eight-over (+8) par and place as runner-up.
