Meyers fires brilliant 64 to win The Els Family trophy
David Meyers recorded the best round ever in a Glacier Junior Series tournament when he won The Els Family trophy with a brilliant eight-under-par 64 at The Els Club Copperleaf on Sunday.
Eric Wower and Dean Martin tied for second on 67.
The popular junior golf series features some 25 regional events around the country and was launched in 2010.
Meyers, a member of the Ernie Els & Fancourt Foundation, attributed his win to a small technical swing change that he believes has given him a better understanding of his swing and overall game.
“This is my best round in a tournament,” Meyers said. “
It could not have come at a better time. I am really working hard on my game. My hands were too active in the swing. I have changed that and am therefore really looking forward to the two National Order of Merit tournaments during the July holiday.”
According to the 17-year-old Meyers, everything in his game was solid.
He his loops of 33 and 31 at Copperleaf included two eagles and five birdies and he incurred just a single drop.
