Special to the Independent
Scottsdale resident Lindsey Weaver at the Winn Grips Heather Farr Classic

Scottsdale resident Lindsey Weaver broke the Winn Grips Heather Farr Classic women's course record with a 7-under-par 64 and finished at the top of the Girls Division after a playoff with Amy Lee of Brea, Calif.

The tournament was hosted by Longbow Golf Club.

Conducted by the American Junior Golf Association, the Winn Grips Heather Farr Classic is a 54-hole stroke play competition played on the par-71 Longbow Golf Club.

The event featured 96 boys and 48 girls, ages 12-18, from 19 states and 6 foreign countries. The Boys Division played the course at 7,033 yards while the Girls Division played the course at 6,150 yards.

In the girls division, Weaver finished at 7-under-par 206 and went to a sudden-death playoff on the par-4 No. 10. At the playoff, Ms. Weaver sank a three-foot putt for par to claim her eighth career AJGA victory.

"This is probably the highlight of my career as a junior golfer,"” Ms. Weaver said in an April 9 press release. "I don't think any other victory has been quite like this, especially this tournament which is so prestigious."
