Champion of the 2016 New England Amateur Championship
James Turner, an 18 year old from Gloucester, Massachusetts, posted a four-round score of 7-under par 273 at Hartford Golf Club to capture the 2016 New England Amateur Championship. His final round score of 5-under par 65 was two strokes shy of the competitive course record and secured him a five-stroke margin of victory.
The turning point came on the final day when Turner played Holes 10 to 13 at 4-under par. That dominating stretch included an eagle, one par and back-to-back birdies on the 12th and 13th holes. It marks the 35th time that a Bay State golfer has won this Championship which began in 1926. Read More
