Hogg, Chuasiriporn win juniors


Serge Hogg and Jenny Chuasiriporn won the boys and girls overall titles, respectively, in the local segment of the annual Middle Atlantic PGA Pro-Junior tournament at Rocky Point Golf Course yesterday.

The course escaped much of the day's rainy weather, with only five of 22 groups forced to wait out a 45-minute delay before completing their rounds.

Hogg, playing from Longview Golf Course, won on a match of cards after tying with Dean Blankenship of Wakefield Valley GC. The 3 handicappers registered a 1-over-par 73. Chuasiriporn, 14, a previous winner in events on this eastern Baltimore County course, had her best round for the site, 39-3978.

Hogg, 16, and a Calvert Hall senior, went 4-over par on the last three holes of the front nine, then dipped 3 under on the return for 39-34 against a par of 35-37. Blankenship, 17, a senior at Westminster High School, had an interesting day with the putter, as he had five birdies and four three-putts on his way to six bogeys for 36-37.

Jimmy Hyams of Woodholme CC won the pro sweeps with a 4-under-par 35-33-68.
