Onishi Comes From Behind to Claim Sea Pines Junior Heritage

Kaito Onishi (Bradenton, FL) had the round of the day to claim the Championship.  In wind gusted up to 25 miles an hour and temperatures hovered at 45 degrees, Onishi was able to fire the only round of even par. His two day total of 145 was one shot clear of J.J. Gresco (Scottsdale, AZ) and Doc Redmond (Raleigh, NC ) who both finished three over par.  Day one leader, Shiso Go (Bluffton) was six over par on his last six holes to let the title slip out of his grasp, finishing two off the pace at four over for the tournament.

Local Nimmer Claims Title

After 36 holes of very competitive golf on two world class venues, Bryson Nimmer of Bluffton sat atop the leaderboard at even par, 143.  Joining him ahead of the field was local resident Andrew Orischak.  Both players were within three shots of the lead after day one.  Nimmer sat one shot back at even par and Orischak three back at two over.  When the scorecards were turned in, Orischak posted a two-under par, bogey free round of 70.  Nimmer made it interesting, posting a bogey and three birdies in the final five holes, including holing out for birdie from the greenside bunker on the final hole.

Nimmer and Orischak proceeded to head to the par-four 18th hole once all the scores had been turned in to start their playoff.  Nimmer stuck an eight iron inside of six feet on his approach shot and made the birdie putt to claim his title, joining the likes of many PGA Tour players who have been champions of The Sea Pines Junior Heritage!

The event is hosted by The Sea Pines Resort and competed over Harbour Town Golf Links for the first round. The final round was contested on the Pete Dye designed Heron Point course, Sunday, February 8.  Two talented players will walk away with the Lighthouse Trophies befitting of their respective championships. The SC Junior Golf Association would like to recognize The Sea Pines Resort for presenting and hosting this prestigious event along with Nike Golf, Coca-Cola, and the Heritage Classic Foundation for making this must play tournament.

The 2015 Sea Pines Junior Heritage consisted of an 84 player field.  Six players were derived from local qualifying and the rest of the field was set with 78 invited players.  Thirteen states and multiple countries were represented in the 24th edition of the nationally renowned junior championship.

Huskey captures 2014 Sea Pines Junior Heritage.

Keenan of Greenville, SC captured the boy’s division on the first hole sudden death over Ben Schlottman of Advance, NC.

Huskey, a high school senior, started the day poorly with a pair of opening bogies. Two-over-par after two holes was not what he envisioned when he stepped on the first tee one shot behind the leaders.

Despite the early nerves, he settled down and all that washed away with an eagle three on the par five fifth hole. From there he made five straight pars before jumping into a share of the lead with back-to-back birdies on the 12th and 13th.

Koepka: How Junior Golf is Done!

Chase Koepka, playing in the last tournament of his junior career started the day three strokes back and two-over-par. Before he started he told his friend Ashlan Ramsey, “Let’s get it done.”

Chase posted the second lowest round of the day, a one-over-par 72. The key point in the round was a clutch up-and-down on Harbour Town’s waterfront 18th.

That was good enough to  join a three-way playoff that he won on the first extra hole with a par. Chase reflected, “How better way to go out? On top, winning one of the best junior tournaments in the country.”

2011 Results – Boys

All eyes may be on the Super Bowl but not in the small South Carolina town of North Augusta. Two of their own,  Matthew NeSmith and McKenzie Talbert, took on the best junior golfers country and won the boys and girls titles respectfully at the Sea Pines Junior Heritage. The two-day event was held February 5-6th at the picturesque Ocean Course and the Famed Harbour Town Golf Links in The Sea Pines Resort on Hilton Head Island South Carolina.

On the boys’ side of the event, NeSmith, a high school junior, started the day with share of the lead. He knew the field was world class but wasn’t really nervous. What nerves he did feel he described as a “good nervous.”  And although he lost the lead to an opening hole birdie by first round co-leader  Trey Valentine, NeSmith said he was most worried about “Stephen (Behr) making a run.” An event he explained he had become accustom to.

That never happened and Matthew gained possession of the lead on the third hole and never looked back. He explained that everyone needs to learn how to play for themselves and he did last fall. He approaches every round like one at home with friends. “I focus on playing golf and making shots.  I am not competitive like Tiger Woods… but I have found my game.”

NeSmith’s even par 71 was good enough for a four-under-par finish and a three stroke margin of victory.

Finishing in second place was Valentine.  Although it was not a win, the Melbourne, FL player’s 74 today and one-under par finish was respectful for the challenging Harbour Town Golf Links.

Finishing out the top 5 where: Stephen Behr at even-par 143, James Yoon 144 and defending champion Jim Liu at 145.

Struggles are nothing new to Andrew Yun.

By ZACH VAN HART, ISLAND PACKET – He spent much of 2007 revamping his swing and much of Sunday slugging through a round that tested his fortitude. But a year¹s worth of struggles produced a weekend to remember, as Yun defeated Julian Suri on the second sudden-death playoff hole to win the Verizon Junior Heritage on a sunny Sunday at Harbour Town Golf Links.

Despite a 3-over-par 74 in the final round, Yun¹s first-round lead stood up for a monumental title. The same was true for girls winner Marta Silva Zamora, who fired a 4-over 75 but won anyway by two strokes. On a pristine day at famed Harbour Town, the leaders stumbled but never tumbled and showed mettle down the stretch.

For 16-year-old Yun, it was a breakthrough victory. The Chandler, Ariz., resident endured a self-described terrible ¹07, one that forced him to reconnect with his former coach in Seattle, where Yun moved from in 2006. Yun, playing in his third Junior Heritage, couldn¹t suppress a grin after Saturday¹s 4-under round or Sunday¹s gritty performance.

³To win any tournament is a big deal, especially one like the Verizon Junior Heritage,² he said. ³It came after such a bad slump. It¹s like I was reborn again.²

Yun made few mistakes but struggled putting. He finally broke through on the par-3 17th, sinking a 25-foot putt for birdie ‹ his only of the round. Yun gave the stroke back with a bogey on No. 18, setting the stage for his playoff against Suri.

Coincidentally, Yun and Suri also tied here last year, finishing in seventh place. This time, their gridlock forced them to return to the par-4 No. 1 for the tournament¹s first playoff since 2005. After both parred the hole, they moved to the 332-yard ninth. Both players ran into trouble immediately. Yun landed in the left rough, 100 yards from the pin, his path deterred by nearby trees.

But Suri had bigger issues, his ball laying inches from a tree trunk in brush right of the fairway and his path to the green completed obstructed. Later describing his lie as a bad break after his tee shot ricocheted off a tree, Suri needed two strokes to punch out to the fairway and carded a double bogey.

After a risky line-drive 5-iron put him in a back bunker, Yun eventually sank a 2-foot bogey putt to preserve the win.

The Junior Men’s division saw a few changes on the leader board throughout the day as well as a strong push for the championship by Bud Cauley (Jacksonville, FL). Cauley started the day at 1-over par but his day with a birdie on the par-4 first hole at the Harbour Town Golf Links followed by an eagle on the second hole. Cauley finished the day at 4-under for the round and 3-under for the tournament giving him a second place finish in his second appearance at the Verizon Junior Heritage.

But playing at the tournament on your birthday has proven to be good luck for Cole Spencer (Greer, SC) who successfully defended his 2006 championship and celebrated his birthday today. “I didn’t have high expectations coming into this tournament since I have not been playing so well,” Spencer said. Spencer finished the tournament with a round of 71 and a total for the tournament of 4-under par. “The front nine holes were a pretty big struggle for me but I got it together and shot par on the last thirteen holes.”

Rounding out the top ten positions behind Spencer and Cauley were Ji Moon (Lake Mary, FL); Byeong-Hun An (Bradenton, FL); Jacob Burger (Orangeburg, SC); Wes Roach (Knoxville, TN);Brooks Koepka Wellington, FL); Sean Brannan (Hollidaysburg, PA) Andrew Yun (Tacoma, WA); Julian Suri (St. Augustine, FL) Henry Zaytoun lll (Raleigh, NC) and Bryan Harris (Rancho Mirrage, CA).
