  • HANDA CUP: World Legends finally beat U.S. on eighth try OLD HICKORY, Tenn. – It took eight tries, but the LPGA Legends Tour finally witnessed a breakthrough in its premier team event on Sunday.

  • HANDA CUP: Jones wins twice, but U.S. trails after Day 1 OLD HICKORY – Some golf history could be made on Sunday at the LPGA Legends Tour’s ISPS Handa Cup. The World team was winless in the first seven stagings of the team competition that matches LPGA players 45 and over from the U.S. against their Legends counterparts who were born internationally. The U.S. won the ...
  • HANDA CUP: Captains Carner, Nilsson take opposite approaches with pairings . OLD HICKORY, Tenn. – The ISPS Handa Cup is one of the premier events on the LPGA’s Legends Tour and its eighth staging at Hermitage Golf Club on the outskirts of Nashville figures to be something special.

  • LPGA LEGENDS: Chip on 18 gives Kane a big win in the rain FRENCH LICK, Ind. – Lorie Kane let a victory slip away on the LPGA Legends Tour two weeks ago when she lost in a five-hole playoff to Rosie Jones in the Harris Charity Classic in Maine. There was no such negative carryover to Sunday when Kane put herself in position to win again, however. The ...
  • LPGA LEGENDS: Kane, Rinker are best at coping with Dye Course in Round 2 FRENCH LICK, Ind. – The wind blew harder and from a different direction in Saturday’s second round of the LPGA Legends Championship. Some of the pin positions at the Pete Dye Course at French Lick Resort were more difficult, too. “Add in that Pete Dye designed this place, and that raised it another notch,’’ ...
  • LPGA LEGENDS: Tour rookie sets course record in Round 1 FRENCH LICK, Ind. – The five-year old Pete Dye Course at French Lick Resort figured to be a mystery to the players in the LPGA Legends Championship. The layout, loaded with elevation changes and spectacular views, had never hosted a premier women’s event before welcoming the biggest in the history of the LPGA’s senior circuit. Dina ...
  • French Lick hosts biggest-ever LPGA Legends event FRENCH LICK, Ind. – The stage is set for what amounts to more than just a golf tournament. The Legends Championship presented by Humana is a week-long celebration of women’s golf at French Lick Resort. The Legends is the official senior tour of the Ladies PGA. It has been in existence since ...
  • BMW CHAMPIONSHIP: A home game was just what Luke Donald needed This has been a tough season for Luke Donald. The world’s No. 1 player for 55 weeks in 2011 and 2012 missed the cut in both the British Open and PGA Championship. Some home cooking, though, got him out of his funk. The former Northwestern golfer came into the BMW Championship on his home ...
  • BMW CHAMPIONSHIP: Monday finish dampens first visit to Conway Farms Slugger White, the PGA Tour’s vice president for rules and operations, knew rain was going to fall at the BMW Championship on Sunday. He just didn’t know how much. The PGA Tour deals with weather issues all year long, and usually has the answer to minimizing the problems related to them. That wasn’t the ...
  • BMW CHAMPIONSHIP: Leaders benefitted by not hitting a shot For Jim Furyk, leader of the BMW Championship through 54 holes, Sunday turned into a day to watch football on television. For Steve Stricker, his closest pursuer, it was a day for family time. For all the 64 players left in the third event of the four-tournament FedEx Cup Playoff series it was a ...
  • BMW CHAMPIONSHIP: Schedule change continues to benefit Stricker Play less, but play better. Not a bad formula for a golfer as long as it works. It’s definitely worked for Steve Stricker this season. Seeking more family time Stricker cut his PGA Tour schedule almost in half but that didn’t reduce his skill level. On Saturday the University of Illinois alum from Madison, ...
  • BMW CHAMPIONSHIP: Furyk’s 59 takes attention away from Streelman Life is good for Kevin Streelman this week. On Sunday Chicago’s only homegrown PGA Tour player enjoyed a Bears’ game and steak dinner with some old high school buddies. On Friday the plan was to watch a high school football game between Wheaton South, Streelman’s alma mater, and arch-rival Wheaton North. Each night in between ...
  • BMW CHAMPIONSHIP: Stricker raves about Snedeker’s putting Steve Stricker posted a solid 66 in the first round of the BMW Championship on Thursday, but he knew he was just a side show. Playing partner Brandt Snedeker put on a putting display that was hard to match, and Stricker found it a challenge to focus on his own game instead of becoming more of ...
  • BMW CHAMPIONSHIP: 66 isn’t good enough for Tiger Forget that shocking tie for 65th place finish that Tiger Woods posted in the Deutsche Bank Classic in Boston two weeks ago. That knocked the world’s No. 1-ranked player from first to second in the FedEx Cup Playoff standings, but that blip is a distant memory now. Woods didn’t have his best stuff on Thursday ...
  • A move to the north will freshen up the BMW Championship The PGA Tour hasn’t visited the north suburbs in 41 years, when the Western Open was staged at Sunset Ridge Country Club in Northfield. That’s surprising, given the golf enthusiasm demonstrated annually in the area and the wide area of quality courses available. Other golf tours did make appearances. The U.S. Women’s Open was played at ...
  • Pro-ams are an important part of the BMW Championship The biggest reason the top golfers on the PGA Tour will be at Conway Farms in Lake Forest this week isn’t because of the $8 million in prize money that’ll be on the line. The Western Golf Assn. conducts its BMW Championship to raise money for its Evans Scholars Foundation. While the 72-hole tournament doesn’t start ...
  • ILLINOIS WOMEN’S OPEN: Fifth Michigan golfer in six years wins the title There were possibilities for Chicago golfers to make significant history in Friday’s final round of the 19th Illinois Women’s Open at Mistwood in Romeoville. Berwyn’s Nicole Jeray tried to become the first professional to win event three times. Burr Ridge’s Samantha Postillion hoped to give her family a fourth IWO titles, her mother Kerry having ...
  • ILLINOIS WOMEN’S OPEN: Another Jeray-Postillion duel — but with a twist ILLINOIS WOMEN’S OPEN: Another Jeray-Postillion duel – but with a twist The story lines couldn’t be more appropriate going into Friday’s final round of the 19th Phil Kosin Illinois Women’s Open at Mistwood in Romeoville. Nicole Jeray, the LPGA Tour veteran from Berwyn, is poised to join amateur Kerry Postillion as the only three-time champions of Illinois’ ...
  • ILLINOIS OPEN: Kinney dominates playoff for first pro victory There were lots of doubts about who would win the 64th Illinois Open during Wednesday’s final round at The Glen Club in Glenview. In fact, no one did. Antioch’s Joe Kinney, who’s been laboring on golf’s mini-tours, clearly showed who was best in the three-man three-hole cumulative score playoff that determined the champion, however. Kinney, 26, ...
  • ILLINOIS OPEN: India takes lead despite double bogey finish Deerfield’s Vince India played his college golf at Iowa and started his professional career this spring on the PGA Latino-American circuit, where his tournaments were in Mexico, Argentina, Uruguay, Colombia and the Dominican Republic. India was right at home on Tuesday in the 64th Illinois Open, however. Opening with a 20-foot putt for eagle ...
  • ILLINOIS STATE AMATEUR: Tee-K Kelly is halfway to a sweep ROCKFORD – Tee-K Kelly had an inkling this would be his week at the 83rd Illinois State Amateur golf championship at Aldeen Golf Club. “I told my Dad on the first day that this was the most nervous I’ve been in a long time, because I knew I had a shot to win,’’ he said. ...
  • JDC: Spieth becomes PGA Tour’s first teenage champion in 82 years SILVIS, IL. – It’s not unusual for golfers to get their first PGA Tour victory at the John Deere Classic. Jordan Spieth became the 19th player in the tourney’s 43-year history to do it on Sunday. Spieth’s win, though, was different from all the others – a lot different. Still two weeks away from his 20th ...
  • JDC: Changing of the guard after Summerhays shoots 62? SILVIS, IL. – Could Sunday bring a changing of the guard at the John Deere Classic? Saturday’s developments at TPC Deere Run certainly suggested that’s a strong possibility. Zach Johnson and Steve Stricker, the poster boys for the PGA Tour stop over the last four years, fell off the pace in the third round as ...
  • JDC: Zach Johnson doesn’t need to be perfect to retain lead SILVIS, IL. – Zach Johnson is not only on the board of directors for the John Deere Classic, he’s also the defending champion. Those roles might seem a burden for the PGA Tour’s leading member from nearby Iowa, but so far Johnson’s kept his focus. He tacked a second round 66 to the 64 he ...
  • ILLINOIS WOMEN’S AMATEUR: Youngest champion in 80 years is just 16 ILL. WOMEN’S AMATEUR: Youngest champion in 80 years is just 16 The Illinois Women’s Golf Assn. has conducted a state amateur championship for 80 years, and this year’s version produced its youngest-ever champion. Bing Singhsumalee, 16, won the tourney in spectacular fashion, chipping in for birdie on the first hole of a sudden death playoff to defeat ...
  • ENCOMPASS CHAMPIONSHIP: Couples’ birdie blitz didn’t faze Stadler Craig Stadler’s first Champions Tour win in eight years seemed a foregone conclusion for awhile on Sunday. After all, he had a five-shot lead after playing his first six holes at North Shore Country Club in Glenview. That lead wasn’t so safe, though. A combination of Fred Couples’ birdies and Stadler’s own shaky play turned the ...
  • ENCOMPASS CHAMPIONSHIP: Stadler’s a surprise leader entering final round ENCOMPASS CHAMPIONSHIP: Stadler’s a surprise leader entering final round Who would have expected Craig Stadler to be the 36-hole leader of the Encompass Championship? Well, certainly not Craig Stadler. The veteran long ago nicknamed the Walrus hasn’t won a tournament since 2004 and hasn’t even been in contention in one since 2007. Three months ago he was on ...
  • ENCOMPASS CHAMPIONSHIP: Another Langer-Frost duel begins A 3-hour 28-minute rain delay disrupted the return of the Champions Tour to Chicago on Friday, but it didn’t interrupt the season-long duel of the circuit’s two top players. Bernhard Langer, the season money leader and No. 2 in the season-long battle for the coveted Charles Schwab Cup, posted a 5-under-par 67 at North Shore ...
  • ENCOMPASS CHAMPIONSHIP: Irwin aims for sixth victory on Chicago courses No golfer ever has had the success that Hale Irwin has enjoyed on Chicago courses. Not Fred Couples, not Mark O’Meara, not Bernhard Langer, not Tom Lehman, not even Illinois Golf Hall of Famer Jay Haas or Nick Price – the last winner of back-to-back Western Opens at Cog Hill back in the early 1990s. All ...
  • SENIOR PGA: Kohki Idoki overcomes three Champions Tour superstars ST. LOUIS – Who would have expected this? Three of the top stars in American golf were in position to win the 74th PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club on Sunday. None did. The first major title of the year on the Champions Tour instead went to Kohki Idoki, a 5-foot 5-inch 136-pound Japanese golfer ...
  • SENIOR PGA: Perry-Cochran scenario makes for a neat story ST. LOUIS – It’s not unusual for the PGA to pair friends in the first two rounds of its tournaments. That’s why Kenny Perry and Russ Cochran played together in the first two rounds of the 74th PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club. The results, though, don’t always come out they did on Thursday and ...
  • IPGA MATCH PLAY: Malm notches an historic repeat Curtis Malm won both player-of-the-year awards handed out by the Illinois PGA last year, and – judging by what happened in the first of the section’s four major championships of 2013 – there’s no reason to think he won’t pull off another sweep this season. Malm became the first player in 25 years to win back-to-back ...
  • Northwestern golfer breaks a Luke Donald record Luke Donald was a three-time All-American and an NCAA champion for Northwestern before he went on to his brilliant career as a professional, which included his earning the status of the world’s No. 1 golfer. One of Donald’s most cherished collegiate records went by the wayside on Tuesday when NU junior Jack Perry posted a 54-hole ...
  • IPGA PLAYERS: Orrick wins again, but Malm sweeps player-of-the-year awards GALENA, IL. – It was a rarity when Steve Orrick won the Illinois PGA Championship in August. He was the first non-Chicago area club professional to take that title in 60 years. It wasn’t so unusual for Orrick, the head man at Country Club of Decatur, to rule the last of the section’s four major ...
  • RYDER CUP: Kaymer’s attitude adjustment paid off in the end Germany’s Martin Kaymer changed his attitude. For that he was rewarded Sunday with the honor of assuring the Ryder Cup would remain in Europe for two more years. Kaymer hadn’t been playing well leading into this year’s Ryder Cup. In fact he skipped the last qualifying tournament for Team Europe even though he held the ...
  • RYDER CUP: Donald’s fast start was the key to Europe’s comeback Luke Donald did his job perfectly for Team Europe on Sunday. With his team trailing 10-6, captain Jose Maria Olazabal sent former world No. 1 and Northwestern alum Donald out first in Sunday’s singles in hopes of building some quick momentum for his team. Donald didn’t disappoint. His opponent, long-hitting Bubba Watson, had been a ...
  • RYDER CUP: Poulter’s five-birdie finish gives Europe some hope There may be no better match play competitor in Ryder Cup history than England’s Ian Poulter. He’s kept Team Europe alive – at least barely – through two days of the 39th staging of the event at Medinah, and he gave a pulsating finish to Saturday’s session. After playing partner Rory McIlroy made birdie at ...
  • RYDER CUP: European captain’s picks were too much for Tiger Opening day at the 39th Ryder Cup didn’t go well for Team Europe on Friday, but the gang that won four of the last five competitions did win one battle. The two captain’s picks made by European captain Jose Maria Olazabal were twice as productive as the four captain’s picks made by U.S. captain Davis Love ...
  • U.S. MID-AMATEUR: Nathan Smith’s well-earned fourth title sets a record Pittsburgh’s Nathan Smith made U.S. golf history Thursday en route to earning another coveted invitation to next April’s Masters tournament. Smith became the first four-time winner of the U.S. Mid-Amateur – the national championship for players 25 and over — with a tense victory over Canadian Garrett Rank in the 36-hole final at Conway Farms, in ...
  • U.S. MID-AMATEUR: Smith, Rank final will be historical — no matter who wins No golfer in the 32-year history of the U.S. Mid-Amateur has won the tournament four times. Nathan Smith could be the first to do it today at Conway Farms, in Lake Forest. Smith, from Pittsburgh, won the national championship for amateurs 25 and over in 2003, 2009 and 2010. He advanced to another final ...
  • BMW CHAMPIONSHIP: McIlroy is simply the best as season reaches its climax CARMEL, Ind. – Sunday’s wrapup to the BMW Championship didn’t bode well for the U.S. team’s chances in the upcoming Ryder Cup matches at Medinah. Two members of the European Ryder Cup team, Rory McIlroy and Lee Westwood, played together in the next-to-the-last twosome and finished at the top of the leaderboard with McIlroy reinforcing his ...
  • BMW CHAMPIONSHIP: Ten-birdie round shows Mickelson is back in the groove CARMEL, Ind. – Phil Mickelson was a reluctant competitor when the Western Golf Assn. held the Western Open and its successor, the BMW Championship, at Cog Hill in Lemont. He just didn’t like the course, and said so. The results showed it, too. From his first appearance in 1992 until the final staging at ...
  • ILLINOIS PGA: Finally a non-Chicago club pro wins The likelihood of Steve Orrick winning the 90th Illinois PGA Championship Wednesday didn’t seem good. No club professional from outside the Chicago area had won the event since Mike Sipula in 1952, and Orrick had two better established playing partners in the final threesome at Stonewall Orchard in Grayslake. Illinois coach Mike Small had ...
  • ILLINOIS AMATEUR: Prchal ends title run by college players MARION, IL. – The college players’ domination of the Illinois State Amateur golf tournament is over. Collegians had won eight straight times until Glenview’s Quinn Prchal came through with rounds of 66-69 on Thursday at The Links at Kokopelli to notch a two-stroke victory over Derek Meinhart of Mattoon. Prchal went through the three-day ...
  • WESTERN AMATEUR: Williams completes an historic sweep The Western Golf Assn. went to its present format for its Western Amateur Championship in 1956,. Calling for 72 holes of stroke play qualifying and then four rounds of match play, the 110-year old tourney is one of the most grueling in golf and few players handled that immense challenge as well as Chris ...
  • WESTERN AMATEUR: Williams betters his own record in stroke play Chris Williams set the Western Amateur scoring record for 72 holes when he went 16-under-par last year at North Shore Country Club, in Glenview. This year, with the 110-year-old tourney moving to Exmoor, in Highland Park, he did even better. The University of Washington senior buzzed around Exmoor in 66-67 in Thursday’s 36-hole session to ...
  • ILLINOIS WOMEN’S OPEN: First three-way playoff goes to Tulane’s Troyanovich The men’s Illinois Open is limited to in-state residents, the women’s version isn’t. The impact of that was clearly evident in Friday’s final round of the Phil Kosin Illinois Women’s Open at Mistwood in Romeoville. For the first time in the tourney’s 18 stagings the title was decided in a playoff with Michigan amateur Samantha ...
  • ILLINOIS WOMEN’S OPEN: Miller could become first high school champion In its 17 previous stagings the Illinois Women’s Open has never had a high school champion. That could change today when Stevenson’s Stephanie Miller enters the final round as the co-leader. Miller, 17, also has a great pairing for the shootout at Mistwood, in Romeoville. She’ll play with the other co-leader, Chicago amateur Nora Lucas. ...
  • ILLINOIS OPEN: New pro Scodro is thriving on state Opens Wednesday’s final round of the 63rd Illinois Open didn’t have the spectacular shots that were so abundant in Round 2, but it certainly had more drama. Recent Notre Dame graduate Max Scodro and Eric Meierdierks, the tourney’s 2010 champion, waged a two-man duel all day long at The Glen Club in Glenview before Skodro took the ...
  • ILLINOIS OPEN: Back-to-back eagles, 263-yard hole-out ignite Round 2 Wilmette’s Eric Meierdierks shot 68s in both the first and second rounds of the 63rd Illinois Open at The Glen Club in Glenview. His second 18, on Tuesday, was the more notable on a day in which the weather was so hot players were allowed to wear shorts for only the fourth time in the ...
  • JOHN DEERE CLASSIC: Johnson steals the thunder from Stricker this time SILVIS, IL. – Steve Stricker’s bid for an historic four-peat at the John Deere Classic fizzled on Sunday, but the end result was almost as good for an emotionally-drained gallery at TPC Deere Run. Zach Johnson, almost as popular as Stricker in the Quad Cities, got the win in one of the strangest playoffs in PGA ...
  • JOHN DEERE CLASSIC: Stricker, Johnson both have a chance to win this time SILVIS, IL. – As far as the multitudes of fans pouring into the John Deere Classic are concerned the leaderboard couldn’t be any better than this for today’s final round. Steve Stricker, going for an historic fourth straight title, is in the final twosome. Iowa resident Zach Johnson, a long-time tournament board member who has spurred ...
  • JOHN DEERE CLASSIC: Stricker’s still within striking distance after Round 2 SILVIS, IL. – Steve Stricker is still very much in contention for an historic fourth straight win midway through the PGA Tour’s John Deere Classic, but the battle lines were more clearly drawn on Friday. Stricker, hoping to become only the fifth player in professional golf’s last 140 years to win a major tournament four straight ...
  • JOHN DEERE CLASSIC: Stricker within 4 of leader after Round 1 SILVIS, IL. –If Steve Stricker is to make golf history by winning the John Deere Classic for a fourth straight year he’ll have to pick up his game on the front nine of TPC Deere Run. Stricker struggled badly on the front nine in Thursday’s opening round, the shot 6-under-par on the back side to post ...
  • U.S. WOMEN’S OPEN: Choi ignites another Korean celebration KOHLER, Wis. – There was a poignant moment midway through the final round of the 67th U.S. Women’s Open on Sunday. Se Ri Pak, who won the tournament at Blackwolf Run in 1998, was finishing her round just as two other Korean golfers – Na Yeon Choi and Amy Yang – were making the turn for ...
  • U.S. WOMEN’S OPEN: Another Korean golfer is poised to win KOHLER, Wis. – There doesn’t seem to be a question about whether a South Korean golfer will contend for the U.S. Women’s Open title. After all, four players from that little country won the biggest tournament in women’s golf in the last seven years. Now the question is, which one will win it ...
  • U.S. WOMEN’S OPEN: This is what Wie has been waiting for KOHLER, Wis. – Finally Michelle Wie is back – well, at least for a day. Long touted as the next superstar of women’s golf, Wie fired a 6-under-par 66 in the second round of the 67th U.S. Women’s Open at Blackwolf Run on Friday, an indication that her lengthy run of mediocre play might ...
  • CDGA AMATEUR: Rain delay was a boost for Davan Friday’s 36-hole championship match of the 93rd Chicago District Amateur was interrupted by a 2-hour 40-minute rain delay, and the break had a big impact on the outcome. Michael Davan and David Lawrence, two players who just completed their collegiate eligibility with plans to turn pro in the fall, were locked in a tight battle when ...
  • SENIOR PGA: Chapman surprise win is still hard to imagine BENTON HARBOR, MI. — To put it mildly, it’s hard to fathom Roger Chapman’s victory in the Senior PGA Championship on Sunday. In 16 full seasons (and parts of a few others) on the European PGA Tour Chapman had just one victory – in a tourney called the Brazil Rio De Janeiro 500 Years Open ...
  • SENIOR PGA: A Chapman breakthrough, or an Irwin comeback? BENTON HARBOR, MI. – If you look at golf’s big picture, there are two significant stories brewing going into Sunday’s final round of the 73rd Senior PGA Championship. The more obvious one is Roger Chapman, the English pro who tied the record at the new Harbor Shores course with a 7-under-par 64 on Saturday to ...
  • BIG TEN MATCH PLAY: Donald is helpful in spurring NU’s three-peat BRADENTON, FL. — The current Northwestern men’s team was no match for the Wildcats’ alumni, but taking a pasting from world No. 1 Luke Donald and his cohorts did have its upside. It prepared the Wildcats well for another un at the Big Ten Match Play Championship. Despite winning the title the previous two years, the ...
  • BMW Championship: Rose Holds Off Senden LEMONT, IL. — Wire-to-wire champions were rare in the 20 years that Cog Hill has hosted the PGA Tour, and European winners of the BMW Championship and its longstanding predecessor, the Western Open, were rarer still. England’s Justin Rose met both criteria Sunday after holding off his Australian playing partner, John Senden, on what’s expected to ...
  • John Deere Classic: Stricker Pulls Off A Miracle SILVIS, IL:. — Steve Stricker had 10 previous wins on the PGA Tour, but none had quite the flair of Sunday’s three-peat at the John Deere Classic. Stricker, now the 20th player to win a PGA Tour event three years in a row since World War II, had a five-stroke lead entering the back nine only ...
  • Western Amateur: Cantlay Upset In Final GLENVIEW, IL. — Patrick Cantlay was the world’s top-ranked amateur golfer entering Saturday’s championship match of the 109th Western Amateur at North Shore Country Club in Glenview. The UCLA sophomore was low amateur at this year’s U.S. Open and a top -25 finisher in three PGA Tour events. Not only that, but Cantlay had eliminated Chris ...
  • Illinois Amateur: Iowa Golfers Rule Again GLEN ELLYN, IL. — The Illinois State Amateur seems to be turning into the Iowa Invitational. At least over the last two year’s the big event for Illinois players ended up as a showcase for the University of Iowa’s golf program. In 2010 Deerfield’s Vince India was a seven-shot winner of the State Am at Beverly ...
  • Illinois Open: Another Win For New Trier HAWTHORN WOODS, IL. — Wilmette’s Philip Arouca hadn’t done much in professional golf — until he teed off in the 62nd Illinois Open at Hawthorn Woods Country Club. Then he couldn’t do much of anything wrong. Arouca, 26, opened 65-67 in the 54-hole tournament, then held off a challenge by Libertyville’s Michael Schachner to take a ...
  • Illinois Women’s Open: A Milestone Win For Pearson ROMEOVILLE, IL. — Wheaton’s Jenna Pearson became the first golfer to win the Phil Kosin Illinois Women’s Open as both an amateur and a professional when she captured the 17th staging of the event at Mistwood in Romeoville.

  • CDGA Amateur: English Is Best On Medinah No. 3 MEDINAH, IL. — The 92nd Chicago District Amateur took an unusual twist. The championship match was played on a different course than all of the preliminary competition, but no one was complaining. Medinah Country Club played host to the tournament, and the 36-hole stroke play qualifying competition was to be played on its Nos. 1 and ...
  • U.S. Girls Junior: Thailand Golfer Is Medalist, Champion OLYMPIA FIELDS, IL. — Ariya Jutanugarn was the easily the medalist at the 63rd U.S. Junior Girls Championship at Olympia Fields, but she was leery about getting into a match play situation with the title on the line. “I don’t like match play, because you don’t know when you’re going to lose,” the 15-year old from ...
