Austin Wiggerman Gets it Done on the Links

Austin Wiggerman won the the boys senior division of the Billy Vahldieck Jr. Amateur Golf Tournament.  Congratulations Austin!

Two rounds weren’t enough to crown a champion in the boys senior division. Austin Wiggerman and Tyler Ross each shot two-day totals of 150, forcing a sudden-death playoff.

After both players got up-and-down for par on the first playoff hole, Ross pushed his tee shot left on the par-3 second and Wiggerman found the green with an easy 4-iron from 190 yards out. Wiggerman three-putted for the win after Ross couldn’t escape trouble.

“I played pretty solid here, but I never felt comfortable on the first nine,” said Wiggerman, who will be a senior at Crystal Lake South. “I came back and I made four birdies on the back nine, really a confidence-booster going into the playoff.”

    Just received this great news from proud papa Kirk.

    Austin was named “Player of the Year” for Golf and was the overall points leader in the MCJGA (McHenry County Junior Golf Association) to win the prestigious award outright. High School try-outs begin today and we hope to see more press headlines in the near future!

    Congrats Austin!
