Joiner’s run comes up a swing short

Despite a strong run on the final day, Adam Joiner missed winning the Colorado Golf Association Junior Stroke Play Championship medal by an eyelash.Down by four shots to defending event champion Tyler Parsloe entering the final day of the 54-hole, three-day tournament at the Flatirons Golf Club in Boulder, Joiner shaved Parsloe’s lead to one stroke going into the tournament’s final hole by firing an even round of 69.Joiner’s Wednesday round gave the Carbondale resident a three-day total of 208. Parsloe, who finished with a three-over round of 72 on the day, concluded play with a mark of 207. Left with a 19-foot putt after Joiner finished up, Parsloe, a junior to-be at ThunderRidge High School, secured the victory by calmly sinking his shot. Teddy Karlinski of Aspen concluded the tournament in a sixth-place tie with three other golfers at 214. Connor Rakowski, a student at Basalt High School, carded a tournament score of 220 and was 19th overall in the field of 40 players. Jim Knous survived two days of cuts to end at 227.
