Will Hacker fell just short of a junior championship for the 10-12 Division Resorters in 2020. He will get a chance for redemption on Saturday morning.
Hacker, who was the best seed in the division after a 38th in qualifying this year, won another close fight on Friday after battling 12th seeded Ellie Sticha in a 2-up final. Graham Odland will be waiting for him in the final after the sixth seed won a close match against second seed Jaxn Hacker on Friday.
Odland took an early lead in his semi-final game against runner-up Jaxn Hacker and eventually led to a 2-1 win that took him one win from a title.
Odland started his round on the second nine with a par that gave him an instant one-hole advantage after Hacker’s bogey. Both players got into trouble at par-5 12, but Odland’s double bowey was enough to take the hole before his par at 13 made him 3-up.
Hacker made it a match with consecutive wins on holes 14 and 15 over a bogey and a par. Both players bogeyed No. 16 before a bogey win at 17 for Odland ended the match.
Will Hacker and Odland tee off for the championship on Saturday at 8 a.m. from hole 10.
