San Ramon boy wins second junior golf title of season

Alamo, San Ramon girls finish in top 10 in separate division at Haggin Oaks

A nine-shot improvement in the final round spurred San Ramon resident Anay Roge to his second Hurricane Junior Golf Tour title of the year at the Sacramento Junior Shootout earlier this month.

Roge finished the tournament at 17-over-par for a two-stroke victory in the boys 11-13 division of the competition at the Alister MacKenzie course at Haggin Oaks Golf Complex in Sacramento.

The win came less than a month after Roge took home the trophy at the tour's event at Shadow Lakes Golf Club in Brentwood.

Roge opened the two-day tournament at Haggin Oaks with a round of 85 at the par-72 course. All three competitors in the division were within one stroke of each other after the first round.

The San Ramon boy separated himself in the final round, shooting a 4-over-par 76 to finish atop the leaderboard at 17-over-par -- two shots clear of runner-up Blake Knox, of Nevada City.

Roge and third-place finisher C.J. Grassner, of Lincoln, led the division with two birdies each.

In other action, the San Ramon Valley had a pair of top-10 finishers in the girls 14-18 division.

Alamo's Annika Borrelli tied for fourth place at 21-over-par, and San Ramon resident Alexis Browne shot 25-over-par to tie for ninth. Reisha Savadatti, of Los Altos, won the division at 9-over-par.

In the boys 14-15 division, Roge's older brother Ansh started playing but did not finish the tournament for unspecified reasons.

First of all, I must appreciate Anay Roge for his great achievement. Golf is one of my favorite sports items and I love to play it whenever have some time out of work, as I work for a writing service online. One thing is sure when considering how he plays at this stage, he is soon going to make things big in the senior level.
