2024 Pro-Junior Championship Results

VERSAILLES, KY –  A beautiful morning in the heart of horse country marked the beginning of the 2024 Pro-Junior Championship presented by Titleist. Professionals across the Bluegrass were joined by three junior golfers for the team scramble event. All eleven groups teed off at 9 a.m. in a shotgun start at The Woodford Club.

Birdies were dropping early and often, with 111 scored on the day across all teams. No crew started off hotter than that of professional Corey Stith from Elizabethtown Country Club. Stith was joined by junior golfers Rylan Jones, Jase Cook, and Jackson Mayes as they rocketed to ten-under-par through the first nine holes. 

As the round progressed, things continued to heat up as professional Casey Schneider’s crew of Emery Busald, Lucas Cousineau, and Grant Stetter went on an eight-hole birdie streak. Grant Stetter, a rising senior at Beechwood High School, finished off the round by sinking an eagle putt on their final hole. Stetter’s putt solidified the group's final score of 55 (-17).

On the other side of the course, Stith’s team was still firing on all cylinders. The round culminated with the group standing at -17 on their final hole of the day. A tough wedge shot over a bunker left the team with a fifteen-foot breaking putt for the win. With all the pressure on his shoulders, Jackson Mayes, a rising senior at Grayson County High School, answered the call. “I knew walking up to the green that we needed to drain that putt,” says Mayes. “ Corey gave me a good line, and I was due a putt all day. The adrenaline was flowing, but you have to embrace it in moments like that”. 

Speaking on the team’s win with a final score of 54 (-18), professional Corey Stith said, “Rylan, Jase, and Jackson are not only three of the best players in our state, but they are great young men and fun to be around. As an instructor, seeing my students find success and building friendships with them is what makes teaching so rewarding. As far as the next generation goes, I think our state is in great shape.”
