47th Utah Junior State Amateur wraps at Park City GC

Bonneville High’s Parker Bunn captured the Junior State Amateur title in the UJGA’s Boys 15-18 Division

After winning the longest match of the morning in what may rank as the most competitive final day in the match-play era of the Utah State Jr. Amateur, Parker Bunn was convinced he had played even more holes than he actually did.

That’s forgivable. Bunn and Bowen Mauss made only two extra trips up and down the No. 18 fairway of Park City Golf Club, but all the twists and turns at the end of their championship match in the Boys 15-18 division made it seem like more.

“Stressful. Stressful,” Bunn said, describing a closing sequence with one player or the other winning five of the last six holes.

That was the only one of Friday’s seven final matches that went to extra holes. Four others, though, went to No. 18 and the other two each lasted at least 16 holes. A closer look at the 47th Jr. Am, conducted over five days at four courses.
