Cheboygan’s PJ Maybank III Wins Michigan Junior State Amateur Championship
The 15-year-old golfer, who is an online student with Cheboygan Schools, defeated Evan McDermott of Spring Lake 5 and 4 in Thursday’s championship match.
“To be the number one junior in Michigan, that means a lot to me,” Maybank III said. “I played pretty solid this afternoon, made a good birdie putt on 8, got the lead and made a couple more on the back nine to win. This feels amazing. This was one of my big goals coming into the summer – to do well in this event and hopefully win it. I’m very happy I won.”
Maybank III previously won the Drive, Chip and Putt before the Masters Tournament as a 13-year-old and has won several junior tournaments with the Golf Association of Michigan and other traveling golf circuits.
