2017 Championship Highlights

It was a horserace from start to finish that tested every last nerve over a three-day period, but when the last scorecard was signed it was Dillon Brown (CC of Halifax) who emerged victorious. Brown carded a three-round score of 8-under par 205 at The Orchards Golf Club to capture the 99th Massachusetts Junior Amateur Championship.
