REDMOND — Bend teenager Madison Odiorne nearly completed a miraculous finish Tuesday in the final round of the Central Oregon Junior.
Odiorne, 15, eagled Juniper Golf Course's par-5 18th hole to move to 2-over-par for the 36-hole tournament and force a sudden-death playoff with Kaitlin Collom, a 15-year-old from Klamath Falls.
Playing Juniper's par-4 first hole, Odiorne, a Summit High School sophomore and 2012 Class 5A state champion, found a greenside bunker on her approach shot on the first playoff hole. And she could not get up and down to match Collom's par.
In the Junior Division, Bend's Ryan Crownover finished in a tie for 15th place at 11 over, 10 shots behind winner Alec Fourie of Portland.
Brian Humphreys of Washougal, Wash., shot a 6-under 66 Tuesday to win the tournament's Boys Division at even par.
The Central Oregon Junior, an Oregon Golf Association tournament, attracts some of the top young golfers in Oregon.
