Golfing brothers Curtis and Tyler Mitchell continued their strong play in the Pepsi Junior Golf Tour, with Tyler winning four straight events.

Tyler took medalist honors at events in Franklin, Louisville, and Shelbyville from July 13-22.

His 71 was good enough to win the 13-14-year-old age division by one shot July 13 at Kenny Perry’s Golf Club in Franklin.

He followed that up with a convincing five-shot victory July 15 at the Crossings in Louisville. His score of 73 bettered second place Logan Edelan of Bardstown, who shot a 78.

Mitchell also swept a pair of events in Shelbyville last week.

His 2-under-par 70 provided a six-shot margin of victory at Weissinger Hills July 21.

The next day, he shot a 78 at the Shelbyville course and won in a playoff.

Mitchell’s hot streak has propelled him to the top of the Junior Tour point standings with 700 points, 55 more than second place Grant Hinton of Elizabethtown.

Meanwhile, Tyler’s older brother Curtis won a pair of events during the same time to stay in the top five in the standings for the 15-16-year-old age division.

Curtis won the July 13 event in Franklin with a 67, four shots better than the second place finisher.

Jordan McNichols was fourth with a 72, and Taylor Lowary was 22nd with an 84.

Mitchell also won the July 22 event at Shelbyville by one shot by firing a 1-over 73.

The day before, Mitchell was fourth at Weissiner Hills with a 76, which was seven shots behind the winner.

At the Crossings in Louisville July 15, Mitchell’s round of 80 was two behind Louisville’s Nick Shubert and was good for fourth place.

McNichols finished 12 in the age group with an 88.

Mitchell finished third in the July 12 event at Mineral Mound Golf Course in Lyon County with an 81, which was 11 shots behind James Stevenson’s winning score.

McNichols shot an 85 to finish sixth, while Lowary shot a 90 to finish seventh.

Tyler Mitchell finished second in the 13-14-year-old age group with a 75, three shots behind Henderson’s Chris Thomas.
