SUNRIVER — Poor air quality caused by Central Oregon wildfires resulted in the cancellation of the final round of the Sunriver Junior Open at Sunriver Resort’s Meadows course on Thursday.
It was the second straight day that the American Junior Golf Association tournament was shut down because of smoky conditions. As a result, the originally scheduled 54-hole tourney, featuring 132 boys and girls players representing 20 states and three countries, ended in an 18-hole championship.
The boys division title was shared by two Washington golfers, as Spokane’s Nate Plaster and Liberty Lake’s Zach Stocker each finished at 4-under-par 67. Oregon’s Scott Kennon, from Bandon, was third with a 68. Bend’s William Fleck tied for 55th with a 77.
Kornkamol Sukaree, from Huntington Beach, California, claimed the girls division championship — her fifth AJGA win — with a 3-under 68. Kathrine Chan, from Richmond, British Columbia, Canada, was second at 69. Bend’s Olivia Loberg finished with an 80 to tie for 19th, and Sophie Dalfonsi, also of Bend, rounded out the 33-player field with a 92.
