Florio Advances at Junior PGA Championship
ST ALBANS, MO -- After capturing the New England Junior PGA Championship earlier this month at Shaker Hills Country Club, Alexis Florio (native of Cranston, RI) is now showcasing her talent at the national event and making the New England section proud.
Florio has displayed her consistency through two rounds at the 42nd Junior PGA Championship at firing even-par 72 on each of the first two days and making the cut of 6-over par to advance to the final two days of the event at Country Club of St. Albans in St. Albans, Missouri. Through 36 holes, she has made four birdies, four bogeys, and 28 pars. With temperatures reaching upwards of 97 degrees this week, her steadiness has been impressive to say the least.
Of the 71 players that remain, Florio heads into the third round T27 with her tee time set at 9:34 AM for Thursday. From the entire New England Section, best of luck Alexis!
