JACKSONVILLE, NC (April 2, 2017) -- This time last
week Daniel Azallion of Hilton Head, S.C. was sitting
on the waiting list for the Jimmy Anderson Boys'
Invitational just hoping to get the call that there was
a spot for him to play. Azallion, a high school
sophomore, got the call Friday afternoon after
multiple withdrawals and took advantage of the
opportunity winning the 9th edition of the Anderson
Boys' with a two day total of four under par 140.
"I was focused on hitting good drives, just
picking good targets and giving myself opportunities
to make birdies and it worked out today" said
Azallion played the George Cobb designed
course at Jacksonville Country Club bogey free on
Sunday and his last 28 holes of the tournament
without a bogey.
First round leader Chris Kim of Cary, N.C. got
off to a rocky start Sunday shooting a four over par
40 on first nine holes, but battled back on the back
side with a three under 33 to finish with a round of
73 just one shot behind Azallion at 141.
2015 NC Junior Boys' champion Jack Massei of
Cary, N.C. finished in third place after rounds of 70
and 72 and finished two shots back at two under par
142. Reigning NC Junior Boys' 13 and Under
Champion Jackson Van Paris of Pinehurst, N.C.
finished in fourth place at one under par 143. Tied
for fifth at even par 144 were Austin Bonfiglio of
Holly Spring, N.C. and Kevin Burris of Conway, S.C.
