FALL RIVER: The Margeson brothers have some new hardware they’re bringing back home to Fall River.
Brady Margeson captured the 2017 COBRA PUMA Bantam boys Championship at the Ken-Wo Golf Club. Three years ago at the Junior Championships in Paragon, Margeson’s older sibling, Shaun Margeson, won the same championship.
It was Brady’s first win at a provincial championship; he is a member of Ashburn.
In the final, Brady fired a 76, which was the low round in the Bantam Division. He finished with a two round total of 158 (+6). Finishing in second and one stroke behind Margeson was Jordan Cooper from the Northumberland Links. The Fall River native carded a two-day total of 159 after rounds of 81-78. Kien Fudge from Lunenburg is a member of the Public Player Club and finished alone in third place.
The 12-year old who lives in Vietnam during the winter is a member of the Song Be Golf Resort finished with a two-day total of 162.
Shaun Margeson won the 2017 COBRA PUMA Championship at Ken Wo Golf Club. The 18-year-old Fall River native, who plays at Ashburn, came from behind to successfully defend his title.
Shaun Margeson will be heading to the University of Costal Georgia in Brunswick, GA this fall.
Finishing tied for second were third round leader Jakob Wamboldt from Northumberland Links and John Mosher from Chester. Mosher fired 73 and Wamboldt fired a 76 during the final round and they finished with four day total of 289.
