Boys golf: Bulldogs defend Metro title

Ottumwa High School golfer Cale Leonard watches his approach shot to the 17th green during the CIML Metro meet last fall at Cedar Creek Golf Course in Ottumwa.

ANKENY — Cale Leonard secured his second straight win this summer, rolling to the win at the Iowa PGA Junior Tour’s Mid-Summer Classic on Tuesday.

Leonard dominated the field in the boys 16-18 division, finishing as the only golfer to finish under par over the two-day tournament. Leonard followed a three-under par 68 in the opening round with a five-under par final round total of 66, posting an overall two-round total of 134 (-8), beating runner-up Corbin Walker of Ankeny by nine shots at the Briarwood Golf Club.

Leonard’s Ottumwa High School teammate, Joe Hammer, placed fifth in the Mid-Summer Classic. After entering the final round just two shots back of Leonard, Hammer struggled on Tuesday in the final round shooting a nine-over-par 80 to finish with a two-round total of 150 (+8).
