2021 Girls Junior Americas Cup

Team Idaho - History in the Making

About Us

The 43rd Girls Junior Americas Cup was undoubtedly one for the books. After two years of event preparation and three days of incredible golf, the Girls Junior Americas Cup came to a close at BanBury Golf Course in Eagle, Idaho. 

As the Final Round began, Team Idaho knew that they would need to play their game if they wanted to take home the 1st place title. After a long day of leaderboard shifts, three teams managed to battle it out and fight until the very last hole. While all teams put up a tough fight, Team Mexico played strong and brought home the victory with a three-day total of -19 under par. 

Our Story

With a staggering performance across all four teammates, team Idaho made history by finishing in 2nd place for the first time in GJAC history!

Team Idaho started off strong and finished even stronger with their jump from 3rd place to 2nd over the course of these three rounds. Teammates Carly Carter, Emily Cadwell, Kelli Ann Strand, and Brooke Patterson all played with passion and heart while representing their home state.

 

Finishing 2nd in the Individual Stroke Play,  Kelli Ann Strand had a well-earned final round by going 3-under. Through 54 holes, Strand ended up shooting scores of 72-64-68 = 204 (-9). When asked how it felt to make Idaho history, Strand said “It felt really good because usually were playing against each other and this week gave us the opportunity to support one another.”

 

Emily Cadwell had an unbelievable three days by going 5-under total for the tournament. When asked if she would do anything differently, Cadwell stated that “we played really well and exceeded the goal we set out, so no we are very happy with how we performed.”

 

Carly Carter who shot 2-under for the tournament stated that “everyone played well together when it came down to the wire” when asked about her highlight for the tournament.

 

Brooke Patterson had a phenomenal last day by going 1 over for the day finishing with a 10 foot eagle putt on 18 green.

 

Team Idaho shot a total combined score of 610 (-16).
