Bishop claims Rudolph Junior Classic at Chattahoochee

By staff
The 2013 Rudolph Junior Classic concluded on Sunday at Chattahoochee Golf Club in Gainesville. The Rudolph 36 hole junior tournament was originally scheduled in December but was postponed due to excessive rain.

Eric Forberg had a strong second round 74 (154 total) to overtake first round leader Blake Parkman and win the 10-13 age division. Parkman fired an 80 (159) to finish in second, five shots back. Finishing in third with a solid 79 (161) was Gainesville golfer Joe Carter.

In the 14-15 age division, Christian Payne posted a second round 81 (163) to hold off Gainesville's Drew Lasseter who shot 81 (166) finishing second. North Hall Trojan Bartley Forrester had the comeback round of the day with a 78 (173) to finish solo third.

The overall 2013 Rudolph Champion and winner of the 16-18 division was Gainesville Red Elephant Jackson Bishop. Bishop fired a second round 75 (146). North Hall Trojan Hunter Young was in the hunt all day, but fell two shots short with a 75 (148).

Red Elephant Grant Lasseter charged up the leader board with a fine 73 (153) finishing alone in third place.

The Rudolph Junior Classic is an annual event hosted by Big Red Junior Golf.
