The IJGT traveled to Avondale, Pa., to host The Summer Series at Hartefeld National on July 28-29, 2015 at Hartefeld National. Juniors competed in sunny conditions for IJGT Merit Points and national rankings during the two-day, 36-hole event.

Following the tournament, the IJGT is pleased to award Player of the Week honors to Marc Groenhuysen of West Chester, Pa., and Kelli Andersen of Staten Island, N.Y.

Groenhuysen made a comeback from his first round of 86, to improving his score by 13 strokes by carding a 1-over 73 for his final round.  He did this by making an early birdie on hole No. 2 and then back-to-back birdies at holes Nos. 7 and 8.  Making the turn at 2-under, Groenhuysen battled the back and had a par streak from hole Nos. 13-17.  This great round moved him up in the ranks to ninth place with a two-day total of 159 for the Boys 15-19 Division.
