Jason Liu and Angela Garvin repeat as Junior Connecticut PGA Champions

Duo First to Accomplish Feat Since 1977-1978

MIDDLEFIELD, Conn. (July 2, 2015) –Jason Liu and Angela Garvin dominated the field at Lyman Orchards Golf Club to repeat as champions of the Junior Connecticut PGA Championship, becoming the first duo to successfully defend their respective titles since Cara Andreoli and Ron Mac in 1977 and 1978.


Liu of Windsor, Conn. ran away with the Boys Division title with stellar rounds of 71-69 (140, -3) on the Gary Player and Robert Trent Jones Courses. After opening his second round with an even-par front nine, Liu closed in style with a bogey-free back nine that included three birdies. Over his two rounds, Liu amassed an impressive eleven birdies over thirty-six holes.


In a tight race for second, Tim Rotermund of Madison, Conn. carded rounds of 76-73 to finish at six-over, 149, narrowly edging Aaron Montgomery of Lakeville, Conn. (79-72, 151, +8) and Rasmey Kong of North Haven, Conn. (78-73, 151, +8).


Garvin (Feeding Hills, Mass.) displayed precise golf throughout the championship to distance herself in the Girls Division. With rounds of 77-74 on the Jones and Player Courses, Garvin finished seven strokes clear of the field at 151, +8. Her consistent play proved to be critical, as over the thirty-six holes Garvin did not card a score worse than bogey on any hole for the championship.


Sydney Stengel of Morris, Conn. posted rounds of 80-78 (158, +15) to edge Maisie Filler of Bloomfield, Conn. (80-79, 159, +16) for second place in the Girls Division. Stengel closed strong with pars on her final five holes at the Player Course to narrowly edge Filler.


Garvin continues her impressive run of golf this week, adding the Junior Connecticut PGA Championship to her title at The Ledges Junior Open. Both Garvin, class of 2019, and Liu, class of 2017, will have opportunities to three-peat at next year’s 41st Junior Connecticut PGA Championship.


Thank you to General Manager Jason Beffert, Head Golf Professional Dan Valk, Superintendent Darren Wondolowski and the staff at Lyman Orchards for their first-rate hospitality.
