Cole Krantz of Windsor and Caroline Jordaan of Cherry Hills Village won titles Friday in the Colorado PGA Junior Championship at Indian Tree Golf Club in Arvada, and by doing so each qualified for the national PGA Junior Championship, set for Bryan, Texas Aug. 3-6.
Krantz shot a 1-over-par 71 in Friday’s final round, leaving him with a 2-under 138 total in the boys competition. That was good for a two-stroke victory over U.S. Junior Amateur qualifier Coby Welch of Highlands Ranch and Alec Poorman of Boulder. Welch closed with a 71 and Poorman with a 73.
We started fitting Cole three years ago and have seen tremendous changes in his strength and ability. He is now one of the longest hitters in the Colorado Junior Golf Association and certainly deserves his recent win. Congratulations and good luck at the PGA Junior Championship!
