Adam Wood, a rising junior from Zionsville (Ind.), won the 95th Western Junior golf championship on Friday at Village of Golf, Fla.

Wood, who shot under par in each of his four rounds during the week, finished with a score of 279, which was nine strokes under par. The Duke University pledge won by four shots over a trio of golfers. The top four qualified for the upcoming Western Amateur at Exmoor Country Club in Highland Park, Ill.

The newly crowned champion told media members, "I had my A game the entire week and I hit the shots when I had to. I shot myself out of last year's tournament on the back nine when I was in contention, but this is a fantastic tournament filled with some of the best players in the world and I'm glad I'm joining a group of such prestigious champions."
