OPELIKA — Adam Sanders completed a dominating week in the Southeastern Junior Match Play Championship with a 4 and 2 win against Florance’s Michael Peter on Friday to win his first SJGT title.

The event was played at the Robert Trent Jones’ Grand National course.

The rising senior at Oxford took control of the match with a 30-foot birdie putt on No. 1 and closed it out with a 30-footer for birdie on No. 16.

“This means a lot,” Sanders said. “I’ve been putting in the hours in practice, and it feels good to finally pay off.”

Sanders went 2-up with a birdie on No. 4 and was 3-up through 12. Peters won the 14th hole, then Sanders closed it by winning the next two.

He won just as decisively in the quarter- and semifinals on Thursday.

“I played really well in all my matches. I played really solid,” Sanders said. “I just never let a negative thought creep into my head.”

Sanders will play in the Future Masters in Dothan July 1-3.
