For Parker Ashton, this summer has been all about building confidence.
That confidence he’s seeking got a pretty big shot in the arm this week.
Ashton, a recent graduate from St. Michael’s High School in Santa Fe, picked up four wins at the Atomic City Invitational, including an impressive victory in the men’s final of the tournament.
Sunday, Ashton outlasted Curt Norman to claim the ACI title in his first go-round at the tournament. Ashton picked up the victory on the 23rd hole of the scheduled 27-hole finale.
As he had all day, Ashton stroked a fine wedge shot onto the fifth green and set himself up for a birdie chance. He would end up parring the hole, but that would be good enough to clinch the victory over Norman, a former standout golfer for Los Alamos High School who has become a regular competitor in the tournament.
Although Norman, who two days earlier tripped up two-time defending champion Lee Sanchez, was right around par all day, Ashton’s surgeon-like iron game was simply too much to keep up with.
