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."

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.
