Golf: Henry Do wins Coca-Cola Junior Championship

HARBOR SPRINGS — Henry Do of Canton won the Coca-Cola Junior Championship boys division at Boyne Highlands after shooting a 4-under-par 68 en route to a 5-under-par tournament total 211. Jacqueline Setas of East Lansing shot a 3-over-par 75 for a tournament total 222 to win wire-to-wire in the girls division.

Do made five birdies in the last eight holes, beginning with the par-5 No. 11 and built on that momentum by draining a 30-foot birdie putt on the par-3 No. 12. The win is Do’s third in his AJGA career.

“It’s great to cap off my junior career at an event like this.” Do said. “I’m going off to college and I can really build on this and keep it going.”

Will Grimmer of Cincinnati, finished second with a 4-under-par 68 and a tournament total 215. Tied for third are Brandon Barrows of Lake Orion, who shot a 1-under-par 71, and Connor Dudley of Fremont, Ohio, who shot a 1-over-par 73, for a tournament total 216.

Setas started the round with the lead, and never looked back. Setas, a Michigan State recruit, had back-to-back birdies on Nos. 9 and 10. She stuck a 9-iron to within four feet on the par-5 ninth hole and made the putt for birdie. On No. 10 she stuck a wedge close for another birdie putt. Setas played her first Coca-Cola Junior Championship at Boyne Highlands five years ago.

“It’s pretty surreal because five years ago, I was just little kid trying to shoot under 100,” Setas said. “So now to win here is really great.”

Pader Her of Lansing came in second after shot a 3-over-par 75 and finished for a tournament total 225. Tied for third with a tournament total 226 were Heather Ciskowski of Barrington, Ill., who shot a 1-over-par 73, and Harley Dubsky of Valparaiso, Ind., who shot an even-par 72.
