Kieffer wins tour event

LEXINGTON, Ky. - Mt. Carmel’s Emma Kieffer held off a strong final-round charge by Claire Carlin to claim a 2-shot victory Sunday in the Golf Junior Tour 15-19 year old girls division at Champion Trace golf course in Lexington, Ky.

Kieffer’s opening-round 84 had her one shot behind Madison Saladin and she followed with a 9-over-par nine holes in Sunday’s brutal conditions in the weather-shortened event. Saladin’s rough start took her out of contention while Carlin played her first six holes in just 1-over-par to vie for the win.

When Kieffer made triple bogey on her seventh hole, the door was open for the rest of the field, but she managed a par-bogey finish while Carlin bogeyed two of her final three holes.

Seaton winds up on Vigo scramble winner

Christian Seaton thought he would miss the Vigo Coal 4-Man Scramble this year. He was wrapping up his freshman fall golf season at John A. Logan College.

But when rain delayed the tourney by one week, Seaton joined the team of Dave Crow, Sean Donahue and Jim White in time for the 36-hole affair on Saturday and Sunday.

The late addition apparently made the difference as the four-man team won the tournament by three shots. After a scorching 18-under par round of 53 on Saturday, they came home with a 60 on Sunday to finish at 113.
