Weigle awarded top honors from Alaska Junior Golf Association

AnchorageAugust 29, 2013 

Harry Weigle, a freshman at Steller, recently wrapped up an impressive summer on the golf course. He won three of the last four tournaments on the Alaska Junior Golf Association’s schedule and was awarded the Stand Out Player honor for the most outstanding junior golfer across all AJGA age groups. 

Among Weigle’s three victories was a boys state match play title for players age 13 to 15. Weigle, 13, came through in the clutch, winning in a playoff after forcing extra holes with a 40-foot putt on the 18th hole of the championship match. 

Weigle’s strong play qualified him for a spot in a U.S. Kids Golf regional qualifier in California in November.       

Weigle, also an avid baseball player and bowler, has shown a knack for sports that require repetition and concentration. His accomplishments on the lanes include outbowling two-time senior Professional Bowlers Association champion Ron Mohr in a sanctioned tournament in Anchorage last winter. Mohr and Weigle were teammates in the event, but Weigle rolled a three-game series of 764 to Mohr’s 738. 

Weigle plans to bowl for West High this winter.
