Holcomb's outstanding efforts have earned him a spot at the Junior PGA Championship, August 3-6 at Miramont Country Club in Bryan. Hailee Cooper (Montgomery) controlled her performance over the course of the tournament. Winning the overall girls with a five-under-par, 139, Cooper will also be playing at the upcoming Junior PGA Championship.
