Gillman Wins Junior PGA in Historic Fashion

Updated: Friday, August 1 2014, 10:51 PM CDT

If Lake Travis High School's prom falls in late April next year, Cavaliers junior Kristen Gillman may have a bit of a problem. She'll be double-booked that weekend. And not many high schoolers will have her excuse. Gillman has won the right to play in an official LPGA tournament next April.

She did so by lapping the field at the 2014 Junior PGA Championship in Bryan. The Alabama verbal-commit carded six birdies on the day to win the 39th Junior PGA Championship by eleven shots. Her score of -16 breaks the all-time scoring record by three shots.

Gillman shared the lead after 54 holes in the 2013 Junior PGA Championship, ultimately finishing in a tie for third. In the final round today, she shot 5-under-par 66 to win the Patty Berg Trophy in her third Championship appearance.

“I went to the final hole one back last year [2013 Junior PGA Championship] and I still felt like there were some shots I left on the golf course, which would have given me a chance to win or at least get me in a playoff,” said Gillman. “I wanted to get revenge this year.”

Gillman entered the final round with a six-stroke lead and never let up.

“I tried not to change my game plan in the final round even though I had the big lead,” said Gillman. “I wanted to keep making a lot of birdies and not make many mistakes. I’m actually still in shock I won, it hasn’t all sunk in quite yet.”

The victory gives Gillman a spot on the US Junior Ryder Cup team and puts her into next year's field at the LPGA Swinging Skirts Open.

Fellow Austinite Kaitlyn Papp finishes tied for 7th place.
