Alex finished in red figures, shooting 69 to claim first place in his boys age division (12-13 flight) in a TYGA one-day tourney at Alamance Country Club. He had won the TYGA one-day event at Talamore Golf Resort last Wednesday.

Albany, a rising Freedom High junior who qualified for the NCHSAA state championships this past fall, shot an 83 to finish third in the girls 16-18 division. (Complete tournament results and details, including hole-by-hole scores, pars and yardages, were not available.)

They are the son and daughter of PGA Tour caddie Duane Bock, who posted on Facebook this week that both Alex’ and Albany’s scores were “career-low tournament rounds.”
