Shattuck-St. Mary’s golfer sits in first place of prestigious junior tournament.

Riverside, IL- Parker Reddig ’17 leads the 2015 Western Junior Championship after the first day of play. Reddig shot a 2-under 68 at Riverside Golf Club in North Riverside, IL, good enough for a three-way tie for first. 

Reddig was one of eight golfers to shoot under par on the first day. “It was tough, not gonna lie,” Reddig said. “It’s a shorter course but it wasn’t playing short today. The greens were tough. Hopefully, it dries up here in the next couple of days.”

Reddig currently sits in a good position as the field will be whittled down to 44 golfers after the second day of play. 

The tournament brings in the best 156 junior golfers from 40 states as well as internationally. PGA Tour stars such as Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, and Rickie Fowler are among the names that have competed at the Western Junior Championship in previous years.
