13 year old Alexa Pano from Lake Worth dominates at the Junior Honda Classic

13 year old golf phenom Alexa Pano from Lake Worth continued to prove why there's such a buzz surrounding her, winning the 16-18 girls category at her hometown Junior Honda Classic by 11 strokes on Sunday.The tournament welcomed over 300 junior players from 21 different countries, giving Pano that International feel she's grown used to over the past few years. But, this time, she was happy to get a chance to play in her own backyard.

"I get to stay at home," says Pano with a smile. " But also a lot of people (here) that have wanted to come and watch me, that live around here, but (haven't been able to) because I'm always travelling. (It's great to) get to see a lot of (those) people."

Pano added that this was the perfect warmup for this year's first Major coming up. She'll be competing in the Women's Sputh Atlantic Amateur Championship in California starting on Wednesday.

It was Tom McKibbin from Ireland winning the boys 16-18 category, a guy who Palm Beach Garden's Rory McIlroy acknowledged last year on social media when he had some success. Last year's winner Luke Gifford from Boca Raton finished just three back of McKibbin.

Executive Director of the Honda Classic Ken Kennerly couldn't be more happy with the growth of the Junior Honda Classic, and how it further establishes the brand by giving junior golfers the one of the great opportunities of their young lives.

"We really aspire to give these young people a fantastic experience," says Kennerly. "We want to give them as much of a professional experience as we possibly can. The (tournament) has really grown nicely.
