The Rocky Mountain Section PGA Boys and Girls Jr. Championships are in the books and the Section’s best are off to the Junior PGA Championships.

Congratulations go out to 15-year-old Ella Arnzen of Boise, Idaho, as she outlasted 15-year-old Cara Carter from Eagle, Idaho, in a playoff to take the honors in the 2023 Rocky Mountain PGA Girls Junior Championship.  Her rounds of 73-71=144 put her in the playoff at 4-over-par for the tournament and her birdie on the 1st playoff hole was good enough for victory.  By virtue of their excellent play, Ella and Cara earned spots in to the 48th Girls PGA Junior Championship being contested at Hot Springs Country Club in Hot Springs, Arkansas, this August.

Kudos are also in order to Rexburg, Idaho’s 18-year-old boys’ champion Ashton McArthur.  His fantastic rounds of 63-68=131 earned him a solid 4-shot victory.  15-year-old Justin Anderson from Idaho Falls, Idaho, needed a birdie on the first playoff hole to take the second qualifying spot to the PGA Junior Championship.  His steady rounds of 67-68=135 got him to the promised land.  Both Ashton and Justin cemented their spots in to the 48th Boys Junior PGA Championship also being contested at Hot Springs Country Club.

The Rocky Mountain Section PGA wishes to thank the city of Idaho Falls, Idaho, PGA Professionals Kevin Kavran and Tyson Bowen, and host facility Sage Lakes Golf Course and their helpful, willing and hospitable crew for hosting the 2023 Rocky Mountain Section PGA Junior Championship.
