SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. (June 25, 2019) -- Matt Simon of Friar's Head won an abbreviated 18-hole version of theĀ 98th Long Island Junior Championship, Tuesday at Southampton Golf Club. Several downpours halted play, soaking the course and not allowing players to return to the course. Players had only played six to eight holes during the morning, leading to a match of the previous day's cards between Simon and Jesse Goodman, who both carded 74s. Simon's 37 on the back nine edged Goodman's 38 and earned him the title.

The Long Island Boys Championship and Long Island Girls Championship took place on Monday. Jack Estrella of Muttontown Club carded an 85 to win the Boys title by to shots over Jack Blackmore of Southampton. Ella Coady of Southampton shot 98 to claim the Girls title.
