It was the third time LedgeRock Golf Club has hosted a Regional competition, but a first for the Delaware 1 All-Stars: the team will be traveling to the West Coast for the PGA Jr. League Championship presented by National Car Rental!

The Philadelphia PGA Section Champion Delaware 1 All-Stars met the New Jersey PGA Section Champion League 8 All-Stars Saturday morning, winning 11 ½ to ½, while the Met PGA Section Champion Suffolk County 2 All-Stars narrowly defeated the Central New York Syracuse East 2 All-Stars 6 ½ to 5 ½.

Both the Delaware 1 All-Stars and the Suffolk County 2 All-Stars kept their winning streak alive, defeating the Syracuse East 2 All-Stars and League 8 All-Stars, respectively, both with scores of 8 to 4.

The teams met for their championship match Sunday morning, with the Delaware 1 All-Stars punching their ticket to Scottsdale with a 9 to 3 victory.

On the Suffolk County 2 All-Stars was PGA Jr. League veteran Logan Knipe. Golf Channel’s Morning Drive featured Logan back in 2015 when he was a 7-year-old PGA Jr. League player. Logan was born with two holes in his heart, but that hasn’t slowed him or his love of the game down!
