Torrey Pines High School golfer wins Under Armour®/Hunter Mahan Championship

Tournament champion Ryan Burgess

After a rain-shortened nine-hole final round, TPHS senior Ryan Burgess finished at a 6-over-par 182 to win the Boys Division of the Under Armour®/Hunter Mahan Championship, held April 13-15 at the Gleneagles Country Club in Plano, Texas.

Due to weather delays, the final round was shortened to nine holes, where the Boys Division played Nos. 12-18, 1 and 2 at par 34 (3,218 yards). The Boys Division 45-hole par was 176.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Under Armour®/Hunter Mahan Championship was a 45-hole stroke play competition played on the par-71 Gleneagles Country Club. The event features 48 boys and 23 girls, ages 12-18, from 13 states and four countries. The Boys Division played the course at 6,837 yards while the Girls Division played the course at 5,971 yards.

Burgess, who was in the final-round leader group at this event in 2011, led by two strokes heading into Sunday’s final round. He was able to finish the shortened nine-hole final round with a 3-over-par 37 to secure his first AJGA victory.

“It feels great to get a win,” said Burgess, who is joining Southern Methodist’s golf squad in the fall. “It helped a lot [playing in this event last year] to play in the wind because the wind was really high. It taught me to handle my nerves and to not get upset when I get a bogey here or there.”
