2024 Spartanburg Junior County Am Recap

First Tee — Upstate South Carolina hosted the Spartanburg Junior County Amateur Championships on Wednesday and Thursday June 26th-27th and what an awesome tournament it was. We again want to thank everyone who came out to Woodfin Ridge. The weather difference between Round 1 and Round 2 was crazy, with the hottest day on record this year in the Upstate for Round 1 and clouds with rain showers for Round 2. Not to mention a 20 degree difference in temperature!

Spartanburg Junior County Amateur Boy’s Champion: AK Milner 150 (+6) 

The boys 13-18 division was an all out battle this year with a new era of junior golfers. The division this year however was highlighted by AK, as he becomes the youngest champion in tournament history. He just turned 13 in February! We also have a great story to tell. His father Kyle Milner, who is a great amateur golfer himself, actually withdrew from a golf tournament to make sure he was there for AK’s winning moment. While talking to Kyle and watching AK putt on the 18th green, Kyle says “watching this moment was far too important than any other golf tournament, AK doesn’t even know I am here yet.” This was then followed up by AK seeing his dad on the patio and sharing a memory that will live on forever. Congratulations again to AK!

Spartanburg Junior County Amateur Girl’s Champion: Poppy Dawson 143 (-1)

Poppy closed out a great two days of golf and has a great story to tell on the Girls side of the championship. Poppy is now a back to back champion winning in 2023 and 2024. However, this year she did it playing along side her younger sister who also won her division! Congratulations again to Poppy!
