The Ping Junior Golf summer circuit is in full swing, as two more tournaments were contested Sunday and Monday.

McPherson’s Jacob Lackey, who was a factor in the McPherson City Tournament last month, continued his fine summer with high finishes. 

On Sunday, he shot a 79 at Hesston to finish in a tie for seventh. Also for McPherson, scores included Casey Cheek (85), CJ Steiner (91), Michael Smith (96) and Tommy Smith (129).

The golfers were right back at it Monday at Fox Ridge in Newton. Lackey was third with a 78, with other scores including Cheek (90), Steiner (90), Michael Smith (106) and Tommy Smith (106).

Jacob Wilson of Wichita Crestview won the Hesston event with a 76, while Jared Burns of Crestview sizzled at Fox Ridge with a 70.

Crestview is hosting the next event July 22.
