Full Timer, Zheng âJamesâ Liang of China, landed his first win yesterday after a rained out final round at the AJGA Junior at River Creek Club in Leesburg, VA.
James opened the event by shooting a 66 on Tuesday (which also happened to be his 17th birthday) to take the first round lead. His round of 66 included 8 birdies!
On Wednesday, day two of the event, James showed no signs of slowing down on his chase for his first AJGA win, backing up his opening 66 with a 2-under-par 70. James carded three birdies in the second round to maintain a two-shot lead heading into Thursday's final round.
And on Thursday, bad weather moved in and after coming in from the weather multiple times, the 3rd round was cancelled and James was declared the winner!
James is taught by Senior Leadbetter Instructor, Malcolm Joseph!
Congratulations James on your first AJGA win!
