IJGA Invitational at Harbour Town – Final Results

Go repeats as IJGA Invitational Champion

Kozak wins Girls Division at Harbour Town

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. – The International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) concluded the 2015 Fall Season with the annual International Junior Golf Academy (IJGA) Invitational at Harbour Town Golf Links. Junior golfers ages 10-19 years old representing 10 different states and 14 countries competed in the 36-hole Major Championship for double IJGT Merit Points, National Rankings, and AJGA Performance Stars.

Shiso Go of Kanagawa, Japan, repeated as the Boys 15-19 Division Champion in the IJGA Invitational with a tournament score of 1-over, 143. Go started off the tournament well making four birdies and firing a 1-under, 70. This was the best round recorded in the tournament and gave him a three-stroke lead going into the final day of competition.

Harbour Town Golf Links, home of the PGA Tour’s RBC Heritage, is a challenging test of golf, and even a player of Go’s caliber was going to have to play well to maintain a lead. Go did not get off to the start he wanted in the final round, making a double-bogey on the opening hole. He rebounded quickly though, with birdies on his next two holes to get it back to even-par. From there, Go was able to hold off his fellow competitors by making 12 pars in his last 14 holes. He finished with a round of 2-over, 73 and a seven-stroke victory. This was Go’s first IJGT victory of the 2015-2016 Season. Go was the 2014-2015 IJGT Player of the Year in the Boys 15-19 Division.

“Even though I won this tournament last year, I was just trying to do my best,” said Go.

Finishing in a tie for second place were Colton Tanner of Westport, Conn., and Brock Erwin of Muldrow, Okla., who both recorded tournament totals of 150.

Mason Williams of Bridgeport, W.Va., fired a final-round score of 1-over, 72, which earned him the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award which goes to the boy and girl that record the lowest final round score in each IJGT tournament.

In the Girls Division, Kayla Kozak of Bluffton, S.C., recorded her second career IJGT victory with a tournament total of 147. Kozak won in wire-to-wire fashion recording an impressive five-stroke victory. In the first round, Kozak made four birdies en route to a 3-over, 74. This only gave her a one-stroke margin heading into the final round.

Kozak used a meticulous game plan during the final round to hold off her competition. At the turn, Kozak improved her lead to three strokes, but after hole No. 12, her lead was back to one stroke. The pivotal point of the tournament came at hole No. 13 where Kozak made birdie to extend her lead to three strokes. From there Kozak made five straight pars to finish up her round of 2-over, 73 and collect the Girls Division title.

Thanksgiving Day Classic at TPC Sawgrass – Final Results

Beshoory earns first IJGT title at TPC Sawgrass

Tadokoro victorious in Girls Division

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – The International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) continued the 2015 Fall Season with the annual Thanksgiving Day Classic at TPC Sawgrass. Junior golfers ages 10-19 years old representing 14 different states and 20 countries competed in the 54-hole tournament for IJGT Merit Points, National Rankings, World Amateur Golf Rankings, and AJGA Performance Stars.

The first and final rounds were contested on the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass, which is home to the PGA Tour’s The PLAYERS Championship. The second round was held at Dye’s Valley Course, which is home to the PGA Tour’s Web.com Tour Championship.

Pryce Beshoory of Pearland, Texas, won the Boys 15-19 Division in dramatic fashion at the famed Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass. In the first round, also contested on the Stadium Course, Beshoory carded a solid 2-over, 74 to put himself in second place. Beshoory played the back nine on the Stadium Course in 3-under, 33. The leader after round one was Sampson Zheng of Orlando, Fla., who carded a 1-over, 73.

The second round switched over to the Valley Course where high winds made scoring conditions very challenging. Beshoory was able to put a solid round of 3-over, 75 together to remain within one of Zheng’s lead. Zheng also fired a 3-over, 75, a round that included four birdies.

The final round on the Stadium Course was no different as Beshoory and Zheng battled back and forth all day. After nine holes, Beshoory squared up the tournament, and then took the lead after hole No. 10. Zheng would not back down as he rebounded and tied everything after 11 holes. The two juniors remained tied until hole No. 16 where Beshoory hit the par-5 green in two and two-putted for birdie to take a one-stroke lead. Both players made par on the famous island green, hole No. 17 at TPC Sawgrass. Beshoory was able to convert an up-and-down on hole No. 18 to finish with an even-par 72 and a one-stroke victory over Zheng.

This was my first IJGT Tournament and I had a blast. I love the tour and the international people. It was great to play with them,” commented Beshoory.

Beshoory’s final-round score of even-par, 72 earned him the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award which goes to the boy and girl that record the lowest final round score in each IJGT tournament.

Zheng claimed runner-up honors with a tournament total of 222. Shiso Go of Kanagawa, Japan, took home third place after finishing with a tournament score of 227.

Sera Tadokoro of Osaka, Japan, won the Girls Division in wire-to-wire fashion with a tournament score of 239. Tadokoro opened up the tournament with a first-round score of 82 to build a one-stroke cushion over the rest of the field. Consistent winds of 15 mph with gusts of over 20 mph made the difficult Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass even more challenging.

Tadokoro took control of the tournament in the second round on the Valley Course. She carded a 3-over, 75 to build a six-stroke lead. Her round of 75 was the lowest of the tournament in the Girls Division.

The final round did not get off to a good start for Tadokoro. She made the turn with a 45 on the front nine, and her lead of six strokes was gone. Caroline Hodge of Larchmont, N.Y., fought back to tie it up. Tadokoro was able to maintain her composure and she played her first four holes on the back nine in 1-under-par to reclaim her lead. Tadokoro closed with a 1-over, 37 on the back nine to claim a four-stroke victory, which was her sixth career IJGT title.

“My long game was working for me, my driver and irons. I had fun playing on the Valley Course,” said Tadokoro.

Hodge finished in second place with a tournament total of 243. Hodge’s final-round score of 80 earned her the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award in the Girls Division. There was a tie for third place between Wint Phoo Aung of Yangon, Myanmar, and Kristin Whitehead of Johannesburg, South Africa, who finished with a tournament score of 252.

Will Whittaker of Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., won the Boys 14 & Under Division in wire-to-wire fashion carding a three-day total of 244. Whittaker got off to a great start in the first round at the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass carding a 78 to build a seven-stroke lead. His round of 78 was the lowest round of the tournament in the Boys 14 & Under Division.

In the second round, Whittaker did not have his best game in the challenging weather conditions on the Valley Course. However, his fellow competitors were not able to make up much ground leaving Whittaker with a five-stroke lead going into the final round.

Whittaker knew that if he was able to play his game, he would control his own destiny. After nine holes, Whittaker still led by five shots, but after two double-bogeys his lead evaporated to nothing when Ty Vanitvelt of Grand Blanc, Mich., made birdie on hole No. 12 to square things. Whittaker was not going to back down and he responded like a true champion playing his last six holes in 2-under-par including back-to-back birdies on the famous 16th and 17th holes at TPC Sawgrass. Whittaker closed the final round with an 81 to claim the victory, which was his first IJGT tournament victory.

“I have played at this same tournament three times. From my first time playing to today, I have knocked off 50 strokes. I have been working really hard,” said Whittaker.

Vanitvelt took home second place after finishing with a tournament total of 249. Chase Phillips of Hilton Head Island, S.C., finished in third place with a tournament total of 257.

The IJGT will conclude the Fall 2015 Season in Hilton Head Island, S.C., with the IJGA Invitational on Dec. 12-13, 2015. The Major Championship will feature AJGA Performance Stars, National Rankings and double IJGT Merit Points. It will be contested at Harbour Town Golf Links, home of the PGA Tour’s RBC Heritage.

HOWEY-IN-THE-HILLS, Fla. – The International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) continued the 2015 Fall Season with the Laurel Springs School Major Championship at Mission Inn. Junior golfers ages 10-19 years old representing 20 countries and seven different states competed in the 36-hole Major Championship for double IJGT Merit Points and National Rankings.

Lino Galdin of Nesmy, France, was victorious in the Boys 15-19 Division at Mission Inn Resort after he carded a tournament total of 3-over, 147.

During the final round on the El Campeon Course at Mission Inn Resort, weather conditions became challenging with the wind picking up with gusts of over 20 mph. Galdin was able to get off to a steady start and turn in 1-over, par 36 to maintain a one-stroke lead heading into the back nine. After a double-bogey on hole No. 11, Galdin temporarily gave up the lead, but bounced back with birdies on holes Nos. 13 and 17 to finish one stroke ahead of the field and claim the title. This was Galdin’s first Major Championship and third victory of the Fall 2015 Season.

“I was striking the ball well this tournament,” commented Galdin.

Finishing in second place at the Laurel Springs School Major Championship at Mission Inn was Tennoshin Ogawa of Ichinomiya-shi, Japan, with a tournament total of 148. Ogawa fired an even-par, 72 in the final round earning him the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award, which goes the boy and girl who record the lowest final-round score in every IJGT tournament. This was also the lowest score of the tournament regardless of division.

There was a three-way tie for third place with a tournament score of 152 between Ono, Takahiro Nojima of Shibuya-Ku, Japan, and HaoHua Zhang of Howey-in-the-Hills, Fla.

In the Girls Division, newcomer Navika Kuchakulla of Orlando, Fla., earned the Laurel Springs School Major Championship crown with a tournament score of 5-over, 151. Kuchakulla earned the victory in comeback fashion with a final-round score of even-par, 73. Her final-round score also earned her the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award, and it represented the lowest score of the tournament in the Girls Division.

Kuchakulla started the day trailing first-round leader Ximena Gonzalez of Queretaro, Mexico, by only stroke. Kuchakalla’s deficit actually widened to three strokes after the front nine in the final round. She put on a clinic to close out the tournament making three birdies and six pars to finish with a 3-under, 34 on the back nine. This outstanding performance vaulted her into first place and gave Kuchakalla the Girls Division title.

“It feels very good to play my first event and play well enough to win. The first day the conditions were tough, but today I adapted well to the course,” said Kuchakalla.

Gonzalez finished in second place with a tournament score of 154. Tracy Lee of Seoul, South Korea, ended the event in third place with a tournament total of 155.

Shoichiro Sakamoto of Japan, was crowned the Laurel Springs School Major Champion in the Boys 14 & Under Division after finishing with a tournament total of 171. This was the first IJGT title for Sakamoto, who had previously finished runner-up in the 2015 Georgia Open at Savannah Quarters.

Pennsylvania Junior at Out Door Country Club – Final Results

Bennett fires 1-under, 71 to win title

Simpson collects first victory in Girls Division

YORK, Pa. – The International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) continued the 2015 Fall Season with the Pennsylvania Junior at Out Door Country Club. Junior golfers ages 10-19 years old representing four different states competed in the 36-hole tournament for IJGT Merit Points and National Rankings.

Ford Bennett of Owings Mills, Md., earned the Boys 15-19 Division title with a superb final round of competition. Heading into the final round only one stroke back of first-round leader, MJ Bricker of York, Pa., Bennett knew that victory was well within his reach if he played to his capabilities.

In the final round, both players got off to solid starts with Bricker making the turn in 1-over, 37 and Bennett in 2-over, 38. Bennett, who trailed by two strokes heading into the last nine holes, got hot very quickly making four birdies on the back nine, including three in a row from holes Nos. 12-14. Bennett wound up shooting a 1-under, par 71 in the final round and finished with a tournament total of 148 which gave him a five-stroke victory.

Bennett’s final-round score of 1-under, 71 was the lowest round of the tournament in any division, and also earned him the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award, which goes to the boy and girl who record the lowest final-round score at every IJGT tournament.

“I was one shot behind and I wanted to come out and shoot a low number. If I didn’t win it’s ok. I just wanted to have fun,” said Bennett.

Bricker finished in second place with a tournament total of 153. There was a tie for third place between Jack Halleron of Timonium, Md., and Jairus Gaines of Baltimore, Md., who recorded tournament scores of 155.

In the Girls Division, Charlotte Simpson of Towson, Md., was victorious after carding a tournament score of 164. Simpson built a large lead in the first round after she carded an 82 in cold and challenging conditions at Out Door Country Club. Simpson did not get off to a great start in the final round, but she rebounded quickly and saved her best for last carding a 39 on her back nine including a birdie on hole No. 14. Simpson ended the day with another 82 and the victory was her first of the 2015-2016 season equaling her total number of victories from the 2014-2015 season.

Kendel Abrams of New Freedom, Pa., earned second place after carding a tournament score of 170. Finishing in third place was Cailey Roman of York, Pa., with a total score of 218.

Abrams and Simpson both earned the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award in the Girls Division with their scores of 82 on the final day.
