2015 Western Junior Winner: Chun An Yu
Chun An Yu, of Orlando, Florida, won the 98th Western Junior in a thrilling playoff at Riverside Golf Club in North Riverside, Illinois.
Yu – an unranked 16-year-old who relocated to Orlando, Florida, from Taiwan in January – beat Yechun “Carl” Yuan, the nation’s No. 19 ranked junior, with a par on the first playoff hole. Yuan bogeyed, the last in a string of five that doomed the University of Washington golf commit.
