There are overwhelming victories, then there is the sort of utter domination that Josiah Hakala put up over the weekend at Willowbend CC on Cape Cod.
The sophomore at Mascenic Regional High School in New Ipswich, N.H., put up a pair of 3-under 69s to finish with a total of 138 and roll to a 10-stroke win in the Challenge Cup Cape Cod Junior Classic. Thomas Finn of Locust Valley, N.Y., shot 79-69 to finish second.
Halaka's story isn't a simple as a 10-shot victory on a demanding golf course. It was not quite five years ago when Hakala was involved in a freakish bicycle accident that required him to spend Christmas in the UMass Medical Center in Worcester.
