Local golfers compete in 28th Andrew Haley Memorial Junior Golf Tournament

BEDFORD COUNTY, Va. (WDBJ) -- Smith Mountain Lake served as the backdrop for the 28th the Andrew Haley Memorial Junior Golf Tournament Monday at Mariner's Landing.

Coming off a victory in Richmond's junior Match Play Championship last week, Franklin County's John Hatcher Ferguson is bringing that momentum back home. The Hampden-Sydney commit tied for second place last year and sits in the same position at even par going into the final round.

"Well, this has always been a great tournament. It's been one of my favorite tournaments. It's close to home. The staff is great. The volunteers are awesome. Playing two different courses, you kinda come into both days with a different approach. It'll be a different set of greens, different speeds, different cut. Just hopefully be able to roll it a little better tomorrow," Ferguson said.

The tournament will finish up Tuesday at the Waterfront.
