WACO — Eight-year-old Colt Jeffress is tied for second place through two rounds at the 9th Annual Starburst Junior Golf Classic, leading a trio of Stephenville golfers at the event.
Jeffress shot an even-par 36 in Monday’s round at Waco’s Connally Golf Course, and was three-over Tuesday at The Lake Country Club. His total score of 75 is seven shots behind leader Philip Barbaree of Shreveport, La., but places him ahead of 25 other players.
Meanwhile, Sarah Fulfer, 15, and Jonathan Pringle, 14, were also testing themselves against some of the area’s best young golfers.
Fulfer, who recently finished a season on the Stephenville High School varsity, was tied for 16th out of 41 through the first day of scoring, shooting an 88 at Wildflower Country Club.
Pringle also shot an 88, at Bear Ridge Golf Club, and was in a five-way tie for 58th among 93 players.
The classic concludes Wednesday.
