Lacefield earns All-Region honors
Woodford County Middle School eighth-grader Bradford Lacefield wrapped
up the 2020-21 Golfweek Junior Golf Tour with All-Region First Team
honors. Lacefield’s three-day total of two-over-par 218 (70-75-73) May
29-31 at the University of Kentucky tour championship was good enough
for a fourth-place finish against the top competition in the region.
“I am thankful for this award and glad the hard work paid off,” said
Lacefield. “It was a year-long process that required a lot of hard work
and dedication playing against the best players in the Midwest.”
Fresh off of a trip to Augusta for the National Drive, Chip and Putt
Championship in April, the young lefty has taken his game to new heights
in 2021. Lacefield’s play has been consistent over the past year, with
21 of 22 rounds in the 70’s. He picked up a win in March at Gibson Bay
golf course in Richmond and posted 11 top-10 finishes throughout the season.
As high school golf approaches, Lacefield appears primed to make some
noise in the 9th Region.
