Mustang's June Tigert fires 61 at Trosper Park

Mustang senior June Tigert shot a 9-under-par 61 Sunday in a runaway victory of the Oklahoma Junior Golf Tour Trosper Challenge at Trosper Park.

Tigert, The Oklahoman's All-City Girls Golfer of the Year last spring, carded eight birdies, one eagle and one bogey in the final round to win the tournament by 11 strokes.

“I just felt good. I was hitting good shots, making putts — just giving myself a chance,” Tigert said. “It was tons of fun, and it was even better, because I was playing with all my friends and they were all supporting me.”

Her 61 came one day after she recorded her career-best score of 66 in the first round of the Trosper Challenge. For the 36-hole tournament, Tigert had 12 birdies, one eagle and one bogey to finish at 13-under-par 127.

Tigert shot 28 on the front nine Sunday, including three birdies and an eagle on holes 6-9.

“I try not to think about my score during the round and just wait until the end,” Tigert said. “I had no idea I could do that until I actually did it.”

Edmond North's Allison Sell, the first-day leader after shooting 65, finished second at 2-under 138.
