Overstreet qualified June 27-28 by shooting an even par 144 (69 on day one and 75 on day two) at the Tumwater Valley Golf Course. The top four from the junior world state event qualified for the championship. Overstreet finished second, besting out 98 other competitors in his 14- to 17-year-old age group.

Overstreet said he has never played at Torrey Pines, just visited. But he likes his chances.

“I started the year off not that hot, but I worked on my game through the spring and have been getting a lot better,” Overstreet said.
