Space Coast Junior Golf Tour

SUNTREE COUNTRY CLUB • BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Ryan Allison has set the record for lowest 18-hole score on the Space Coast Junior Golf Tour (JGT), carding a 2-under 70 Monday at rain-softened Suntree Country Club.

Allison, of Melbourne, recorded four birdies, to go along with 2 bogies. It was the lowest personal score Allison has posted in competition.

“I started getting some confidence after making birdie on the 6th and even though I bogied the 8th,” Allison said.

The bogey, on the 8th, came after Allison flew the green and failed to get up and down for par.

“Except for the 8th hole,  I felt like I was hitting my irons good and even when I missed a little,  the ball was still on the green and my lag putting was good today so I had a lot of short tap-ins for par.”

Allison, 17, made the turn at 1 under par and finished with a nice run on the back nine, as he birdied holes 14 and 16.  His only flaw was a three putt bogey on the 18th.  Allison recorded the lowest 18-hole score ever at a Space Coast JGT event.

“Coming down the stretch, I didn’t play as well as I could have, because I had 5 or 6 putts inside 10 feet that I feel I could have made – and then I three putted 18 for bogie,” said Allison after the round.

“I definitely felt it could have been better.”
