As the afternoon wore on, the whispers of "59" were heard throughout the Cherry Island Golf Course in Elverta, CA.

Bradley Reeves of Woodbridge established a new course record at Cherry Island Golf shooting a score of 61 (11 under par) in the second round of the Sacramento County Junior Golf Championship. His 11-under for Wednesday was a whopping 16 shots better than his first round of 77, and was the difference in being named Overall Boys Champion.

With a mere three holes to play, Reeves was 11-under par and had a shot at immortality... almost unheard of as a kid who just finished his junior year of high school.

He was close, but he lipped out a birdie putt on his 16th hole, made par on his 17th and make a great up and down to save par on his last hole. His final score of 11-under 61 was good enough to best the course record by one stroke. Now his scorecard will be on display in the Pro Shop.

Reeves has had a great year, winning the Golfweek Northern California Junior Invitational and the Golfweek West Coast Junior Invitational in mid-May.

Brook Riley of Manteca fired to consecutive sub par rounds of 69 and 70 to become the 2015 Overall Girls Champion.
