The Northeast Tour of the IJGT traveled to Nemacolin Woodlands Resort to host the College Prep Series on April 19-20th, 2014. The College Prep Series tournaments are 54-hole contests designed to prepare juniors for future college tournaments. The field of 43 competitors played on the Links and Mystic Rock Courses at Nemacolin hoping to earn IJGT Merit Points and national rankings. This week’s IJGT Photo of the Week from the Northeast Tour features Benjamin Morris of Reistertown, Md.
In just his second IJGT event this season, Morris earned first place in event at Nemacolin. During the final round, he totaled four birdies, three of which came in the final five holes. Morris won his respective division by a difference of two strokes. His numbers for the weekend were 76-77-74–227. We congratulate Morris on his victory at Nemacolin and for being selected Photo of the Week this week. We hope to see more of him this season at upcoming IJGT events.
The Southeast IJGT team headed west to host the Arizona Junior at Ak-Chin Southern Dunes Golf Club on April 18-19, 2014. The two-day 36-hole event featured a field of 15 juniors ranging in age from 13-17 years old. The warm Arizona sun provided warm temperatures for this two-day event. This week’s IJGT Photo of the Week in the southeast features Michael Braunstein, of Roslyn Heights, N.Y.
Braunstein posted scores of 77-80–157 to finish in seventh place in the Arizona Junior. Braunstein totaled 20 pars throughout 36 holes and added a birdie to his round on each day. This is his fourth season playing in IJGT events and we look forward to seeing more of him this year!
