Hixon captures NHGA Junior crown
Hixon of Rye buried a 30-footer for birdie on the par four, fourth hole and eventually held on for a 2-up decision for the 2013 New Hampshire Golf Association Junior Championship at the Campbell’s Scottish Highlands Golf Course in Salem Wednesday.
After falling behind by three holes just seven holes into their match play championship flight, Paradis mounted a comeback. He won the par 4, 17th hole with a birdie and closed his deficit to one with a par on the par five, second hole, the 11th hole into the match.
“Give him credit, it was a good shot,” said Paradis of Hixon. “I three-putted the 14th, 15th and 16th holes to start the match and that was my story. My putter was off today.”
“My ball striking all week was good, but (yesterday) I just didn’t finish well with my putting game. Tom stayed steady and got the job done.”
