2019 Upstate Junior Classic

Upstate Junior Classic

Saturday, June 29 and Sunday, June 30

The 2019 Upstate Junior Classic will be held at Smithfields Country Club.

The tournament is open to all junior golfers ages 10 - 18 as of June 29, 2019 and still enrolled in high school.

The story of the this year's championship might have been the weather. The high temperatures and humidty certainly took a toll on all of the participants.

Coming out on top in the boy's division was Lleyton Renner (74-70 ) of Simpsonville, SC who outlasted fellow playing partner, Trey Howard (75-71 ) of Woodruff, SC. Renner and Howard were tied for the lead heading to the final hole. With both players hitting solid approach shots, Renner was able to hole his putt first forcing Howard to take an aggressive run to to force a playoff. Howard's putt just missed allowing Renner to claim this year's title.

The girl's title was won by Sydney Roberts of Chesnee, SC. Roberts, who held a 3-shot lead heading into the final round, was able to distance herself early in the day on her way to a 9-shot victory over Isabella Britt and Ashley Looper.
