The Southern Texas PGA had its third junior golfer receive an exemption into the Junior PGA Championship, set to take place July 29-August 1 at Miramont Country Club. Daniel Martinez (Austin) went wire-to-wire at this week's PGA Junior Series event at Taconic Golf Club in Williamstown, Mass. Martinez put together rounds of 69-77-74 for a three-day total of seven-over-par, 220 to win the Boys 15-18 Division and ultimately earn a spot into one of the most coveted junior events in the country.
