DAYTON, OH (July 12, 2022) – TJ Kreusch and Medha Pothuru earn their first wins of the 2022 SOPGA Junior Golf season at Player’s Tour Gem City Junior Open.

TJ Kreusch of Kettering, Ohio took advantage of the short commute to this week’s competition and showed up at the first round ready to compete. Two birdies and three bogeys in the first round put him at the top of the leaderboard overnight by one stroke at one-over-par, 72. Though the second round held a few obstacles, Kreusch fought hard to card a second round score of 10-over-par, 81, and claim his first win of the season by one stroke.

Pothuru claimed her first win on the SOPGA Junior Tour this season by finishing four strokes ahead of the field.
