Lexi Read’s putter got hot on the back nine Sunday to win the Tour 18 Summer Championship.

Read rolled in three birdie puts on the final nine holes to finish the Texas Junior Golf Tour event at 12-over par 156. The Bridgeport senior finished four strokes ahead of Bedford’s Brooke Sullivan.

“It’s a big confidence booster coming at the end of the summer,” Read said.

“[My game] is coming along really well.”

Read shaved six strokes off her first round in the second day. She opened with an 81 that included a double bogey on 18.

In the second round, she shot 3-over on the front nine. Then after bogeys on 10 and 11, Read rolled in birdies on 12 and 14. After a bogey on 15, she birdied the par 4 No. 16 to get back to even on the back nine. She had pars on 17 and 18.

“The second day I was making a lot of par saves and getting birdies where I could,” Read said. “I was spraying it everywhere the first day.”
