Pepsi Golf Tour

Alexander shines at Lexington stop

GLASGOW — Several local high school golfers have been performing very well this summer in youth golf tournaments around the state.

Just this past week, Glasgow High School golf standout Emily Alexander picked up a victory on the Pepsi Tour.

Alexander, competing in the Girls 16-18 Division of the Pepsi Tour stop at the University Club of Kentucky in Lexington, finished first by shooting a 4-over par, 75.

The Pepsi Tour, sponsored by the Kentucky Junior Golf Association, and the Musselman-Dunne Tour, are just two organizations that provide youth the opportunity to compete in golf tournaments around the state each summer.

Chase Landrum, a member of the boys’ golf team at Glasgow High School, finished first in the Boys 13-14 Division at the Lexington course. Landrum shot even par, 71.

Also competing in the same division as Landrum was Tompkinsville’s Trey Isenberg. Isenberg finished ninth in the overall standings with an 86, 15 strokes over par. Trevor Isenberg, also of Tompkinsville, took second in the Boys 10-Under Division at the University Club in Lexington. Isenberg fired a 49 and that put him 13 strokes over par.

Landrum also recently competed in a Pepsi Tour stop at The Bull at Boone’s Trace Golf Club in Richmond. Landrum took first in the Boys 13-14 Division with a 3-under par, 69.

In other area golf action: Tompkinsville’s Jonathan Shaw competed in the recent 2012 Kentucky Golf Association Match Play Championship.

Shaw opened the tournament against Garrett Hinton of Elizabethtown and lost the opening match, 4 and 2.

Thomas Wells of Glasgow qualified to compete in the upcoming Kentucky Open. Wells fired a 72 in his qualifying round on Monday at the Glasgow Golf and Country Club.
