Stansell wins Pigeon Dove, Jasper's Minor takes third

Posted

No golfer broke par in the boys championship flight of the 48th annual Pigeon Dove Junior Championship at Musgrove Country Club on Tuesday.

Homewood’s Avery Stansell came the closest, and it proved to be enough as he won the tournament by four strokes. Stansell entered the day in second place, one stroke back of Jackson Bowman.

Stansell finished with seven bogeys and three birdies to finish with a three-over par 74 and a two-day total of 146.

Gadsden’s Bowman, who shot an even par 71 in Monday’s first round, shot a 79 on Tuesday, taking second place at 150. Jasper’s Patrick Minor finished in a tie for third place with Northport’s Bryant Raynowska.

After a double bogey on the third hole, Minor played at one over par the rest of the way, shooting a 74 for a two-day total of 153, seven strokes behind Stansell.

Parrish’s Daniel Martin and Haleyville’s Jack Lawson tied for fifth place at 157, Alexander City’s Trey Shockley was seventh at 162, Savannah Georgia’s Haddon Watson was eighth at 165 while Dora’s Cameron McAllister, Kimberly’s Grant Gurley, Glencoe’s Justin Graham and Pinson’s Charlie Foster finished tied for ninth at 168.

Martin and Lawson tied atop the boys 14-15 division.

In a hotly contested 13-14 division, Cullman’s Will Drake finished as the low medalist with a two-day total of 144. Drake, who had four birdies and three bogeys on Tuesday, started the day five strokes behind the leader, but fired a one-under par 70 on Tuesday, edging out Townley’s Sebastian Whitten and Hoover’s Jacob Lee by a stroke.

Whitten the day 1 leader, followed up a 69 with a 76. Helena’s Jack Childers and Winfield’s Elliott Overton finished tied for fourth, three strokes back of Drake.

In another close battle, both Madison’s Haley Blevins and Birmingham’s Molly Davidson finished tied in the girls championship flight. Blevins held a two-stroke lead coming into the day. She shot a 79 for a 155 total and Davidson followed up Monday’s 78 with a 77 for a 155 finish.

Jasper's Alley Waldrop placed third two strokes back at 157 after a second-round 77.
