The 2022 Savannah Junior City Amateur got underway on June 27 at Bacon Park Golf Course, and some of the city's best junior golfers delivered a birdie blitz in the 36-hole event.

In the Boys 13-14 age group, both Chad Chadwell, 13, and Hal Dollander, 14, carded under par scores. Chadwell, who will be a freshman, at Benedictine MIlitary School in the fall, played holes 8 through 11 in 5-under par and posted a round of 3-par 68, but he only leads Dollander by two strokes after a 1-under par 70 for the Calvary rising 8th grader.

The lowest score of the day was turned in by 12-year-old Kohki Maeda, who finished with a 4-under par 67 to lead the Boys 10-12 age group. But he only leads Richmond Hill's Sahaj Patel by five strokes after Patel carded a 1-over par 72.


In Girls 10-14, Maya Lilja, 12, turned in a nearly flawless round of even-par 71 and leads by two strokes over Madison Woodrum from Richmond Hill. And in the Girls Championsip flight, Sofia Ray has a commanding 11-stroke lead after carding a solid first-round score of 85.

The Boys Championship is a tight match between Quentin Brooks and Samuel Reynold, who both carded rounds of 5-over 76 from the gold tees in the first round. And in the Boys 15-18 age group, Bowen Kicklighter posted an 8-over 79 and holds and a three-stroke lead over Ryan Kicklighter and a four stroke lead over Collin Halligan.
