Jacob Oaks Birdies Final 4 Holes to Win T-O Jr Title

Jacob Oaks of Ardmore, Oklahoma birdied his final four holes on his way to a 3-under 69 in the final round to clinch the Texas-Oklahoma Junior Golf Tournament Boys' Open Championship.

Oaks led from the end of the second round through the end of the tournament, trailing only after a 1st-round 72 that put him two shots behind Stratton Nolen.

Nolen, from Austin, finished in second place for the second straight year at the T-O, but at just 16 he still has two more chances at the title. He finished with a 1-over 73 for a 2-over 288 overall.

Nolen was playing in honor of his best friend, Blaine Smith of Wichita Falls, who died of Muscular Dystrophy last year.

Through sponsorships and donations, he pledged $229.75 for each birdie he made during the tournament to the MDA of Wichita Falls, and with 8 birdies on the week, he made $1,838.

He will continue collecting "Birdies 4 Blaine" at three more tournaments this summer: The HP Byron Nelson Junior, the Firecracker Amateur Championship, and the AJGA Valero Texas Open Junior.
