LINDEN – The Flint Jr. Golf Association awarded the last major of the season on Monday at Spring Meadows Country Club. Powers Catholic freshman Jolie Brochu carded a career-low 78 to win the coveted Mallon Cup in the Jack Nicklaus Group. Fenton’s Jackson Forguth won the title for the boys in the Jack Nicklaus Group.
The Mallon Cup is usually the second Cup awarded during the season, but that week at Warwick Hills was rained out.
FJGA Director Loyd Walter noted that Monday was an unseasonably cool summer day.
“It was not enough to cool down the putter of Jolie Brochu,” said Walter. “The Powers freshman scored a career low round of 78 to tie Fenton’s Keegan Miller. Brochu was crowned champion of the event determined by scorecard handicap tiebreaker.”
Evan VanDeputte fired 85, Karsen Johnston 87, Sydney Harding 88 and Madison Zloto and Elizabeth Gibbs 90.
Jackson Forguth of Fenton won the boys’ Mallon Cup carding a score of 74. Trevor Bailey was four strokes back at 78, Nick Bruett and Nick Brown had matching 80s and Dylan Conte 83. John George and Jake Waun fired 84s, Dylan Mullaney 85, Luke Harrington and Jack Reece Miller 86s and Trevor Maizland and Evan Finsterwald 87s. Jack Vollmar, Mason Cooper and Austin Kibby carded 88s.
Next week the Nicklaus Group will be playing the final regular-season event at Davison Country Club. The outcome of the event will determine the Braun Cup Champion, said Walter.
Tournament play begins for the 5- and 9-hole divisions Monday with the tournament qualifier. Qualifiers from each flight will return on Tuesday for the semifinal and final round of match play to determine champions.
