Six birdies and an eagle propelled Brian Humphreys to the Central Oregon Junior golf tournament championship, which took place July 23 and 24 at the Juniper Golf Course in Redmond, Ore.
The 14-year-old from Washougal fired a 6-under par 72 in the final round to reach the top of the leaderboard in the boys division. His rounds of 78 and 66 gave him a two-day total of 114 strokes.
"My thoughts after the [final] round were very confusing," Humphreys said. "First of all, I was very pleased that I had finally had a breakthrough round because my play in national and regional tournaments prior to Central Oregon had not met my expectations. But I was also trying not to be too satisfied with my play because I knew that if one of the leaders had a good day, I could be in a playoff or even lose the tournament."
