Thirteen-year-old Kaely Krayeski of Wellington won the South Florida PGA Junior Golf event held at the Hobe Sound Country Club in Hobe Sound. The 36-hole tournament was held Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 6 and 7.
Competing in the girls age 14-15 division, Krayeski won the event by a four-stroke margin. She recorded rounds of 78 and 78, for a 156 total. This is Krayeski’s second win in the last three events in the 14-15 age division, since she decided to move up to the more difficult age division in August.
“This is a great win for Kaely, who is coming off a difficult bout with an asthma condition earlier in the summer. Kaely continues to improve and gains momentum when she is healthy,” said her coach, PGA Master Professional Kevin Perkins. “It is her second win in the older division and fourth overall win on this tour this year. Again, I am very pleased with her continued improvement.”
Mary Janiga, also of Wellington, finished second with rounds of 81 and 79.
