TULSA â€” Three local golfers competed in the 2013 Oklahoma Junior Optimist Tournament on Wednesday at Page Belcher Golf Course.
Poteau's Ryan Ward won his age division title with a 71, while Cameron Yellowjacket golfer Kody Whitehead was third at 76.
Ward's sister, Hannah â€” the two-time Class 4A state champion â€” tied for first place in her division with a 71, but lost the playoff to end up as runner-up.
Both Wards qualified for the Junior National Optimist Tournament, which will be July 25-29 in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.
