“I didn't start hitting the ball well until the back nine, but I was just putting myself in a place where I could make up and down or I wasn't making big numbers,” said Lee after his round. “I was just having fun when I played. I think it's way easier to stay playing well when you're having fun.”

Former two-time winner of the Westchester Boys' Championship Harrison Browne of Westport, Conn., finished in second place in the Junior Championship after shooting a 3-over 74 and Michael Asselta of Ramsey, N.J., carded a 4-over 75 for second place in the Boys' Championship, respectively.

The day also served as a sectional qualifier for the 106th Met Junior Championship Sponsored by MetLife and the 55th MGA/MetLife Boys' Championship, which take place at Echo Lake Country Club, July 17-19, and Gardiner's Bay Country Club, July 27-28. The top 13 junior finishers advanced to Echo Lake, while the top five eligible boys competitors aged 15 or under advanced to Gardiner's Bay.
