Cameron Young is riding another wave of success. The 16-year-old from Scarborough picked up some confidence last week before he flew out to California, qualifying for the U.S. Amateur then winning the Met Junior. He shot a 2-under 70 at Martis Camp Club in Truckee during the second round of stroke-play qualifying at the U.S. Junior Amateur.
The Fordham Prep junior finished two shots behind Jim Liu, another standout from the Met section, who medaled with an 8-under total of 136.
Theo Humphrey, who also plays out of Sleepy Hollow Country Club, went 79-70 to get in. Will Bernstein of Century went 73-78 and will have to win a spot in the bracket via a playoff.
Two of the shortest holes on the course took a toll on Nicole Morales in during the final round of stroke play at the U.S. Girls’ Junior, but did not keep her from moving on to match play. The 17-year-old from South Salem who plays out of GlenArbor took a pair of double bogeys coming in, both on par 3s, and shot a 76 at Sycamore Hills Golf Club in Fort Wayne, Ind., finishing in a tie for 11th with a 1-over total of 145. Morales has qualified for match play each of the last three years.
