Washington’s Peck Defeats Beck For U.S. Junior Amateur Title

Shoal Creek, Ala. – Cameron Peck, 17, of Olympia, Wash., won six of the first eight holes against Evan Beck, 17, of Virginia Beach, Va., and went on to claim the U.S. Junior Amateur title at Shoal Creek golf course, 10 and 8. It was the largest margin of victory since the event went to a 36-hole final four years ago.

Shoal Creek, Ala. – There is nothing razzmatazz about Cameron Peck. Attention-seeker he’s not. Want a classic sound byte? Forget it. Heck, silent screen star Charlie Chaplin comes across as more vociferous than the 17-year-old U.S. Junior Amateur champion from Olympia, Wash.

Shoal Creek, Ala. – Being the last in line is never pleasing. Neglected. Forgotten. Anxious. It’s sort of like waiting for a love interest to call only to see no missed calls. That was Evan Beck’s plight prior to the U.S. Junior Amateur. Not literally of course.
