NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - Wednesday morning kicked off the Second Round of the Junior Ambassador Classic Golf Tournament.

For the Boy’s 15-18 division it was Teegan Sonneman who took first place by carding a two day total of 144. He shot an impressive 70, one under par, in round one and then fired back with a 74 in round two. Sonneman says he loved the experience of playing in this tournament and that he is excited to see his hard work paying off.
“Feeling pretty good about it means a lot to be, how much work I put in the outcome... I knew after the first round shooting under par I had to come out and play strong today and if I had one bad shot just keep grinding,” Sonneman says.
