Kim, Goodmanson Win Warrior Cup in 16-18 Age Division
Joanna Kim of Edina and River Goodmanson of Buffalo won the 2017 Warrior Cup in the 16-18 age division held today at GreyStone Golf Club. This is an invite-only, 18-hole event featuring players who have previously won tournaments on the Valspar Junior Tour earlier this summer.
This marks Kim’s second consecutive Warrior Cup title in the 16-18 age division as she becomes the latest Kim sister to win the Warrior Cup. Joanna’s younger sister, Janice, won this same event in the 13-15 age division last Monday at Northfield Golf Club.
Kim fired a 2-over 74 to edge Alayna Eldred of Osakis by a single shot. Despite having two double-bogeys, she was able to bounce back each time with timely birdies. Her round was highlighted by an even-par back nine including three birdies in five holes.
Goodmanson nailed a 12-foot birdie on the first playoff hole to defeat Tyler Burkum of Maple Grove and Carter Taney of Savage. The trio finished regulation in a deadlock at even-par 72.
He was 1-under on the front nine with back-to-back birdies on the par-5 6th and par-3 7th. Goodmanson also played the par-3’s at 1-under for the day; two shots better than Taney and three shots better than Burkum.
