Lane repeats as Wiltwyck Club champ
Justin Lane repeated as the Wiltwyck Golf Club’s champion, defeating Scott Kleeschulte in a duel of 16-year-old finalists.
Lane, the reigning Ulster County Amateur Club champion, defeated Kleeschulte 6 and 5 in the 36-hole championship match.
The match was tight until Lane started to take control late in the first round. He held a small lead and pulled away until wrapping it up on the 31st hole.
Lane had a big second-place finish in the PDQ/Philadelphia Runner Junior tournament in late August at the Saucon Valley Country Club in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
He shot a 2-under 71-72-71—214, just one stroke back of champion Jacob Bayer, who had 13 birdies over the three rounds, to tie for second with Alex Jamieson.
