Breitenstine shoots 33 on back nine to defend title.

BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich.  It was all Green High School at the top of the American Junior Golf Association Junior Championship leaderboard.

Cade Breitenstine rallied past fellow Bulldog Maxwell Moldovan to finish at 12-under and win by one stroke at Forest Lake Country Club. Breitenstine, the event’s defending champion and a Kent State recruit, shot 1-under 70 in Thursday’s third and final round. He made six birdies on the day, including four on a back nine that saw him shoot a 3-under 33.

Moldovan, the reigning Ohio High School Athletic Association Division I state champion, led after the first two rounds. He shot a course-record 62 in the first round Tuesday, which featured nine birdies and no bogeys. He shot a 6-under 29 — a personal best for nine holes — on the front.

Breitenstine, a senior this upcoming season, shot 65, 66 and 70 for the three rounds. His first round included his first hole-in-one. Moldovan, a junior, went 62 and 67 in the first two rounds. He was 4-over after seven holes Thursday before playing the final 11 holes at 2-under.

After Moldovan at 11-under, the next closest competitor was Canadian Kelvin Lim at 7-under in the 72-player field.
