IJGT Shamrock Shootout at Palmetto Hall – Final Results

Kim Prevails in Playoff

Lee captures second IJGT victory

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C.– The International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) hosted the Shamrock Shootout at Palmetto Hall Plantation  March 16-17. Held on the Robert Cupp Course , the IJGT Event featured elite junior golfers representing 10 states and 16 countries competing for national recognition and IJGT Merit Points. The competition was tough, and the Boys 15-19 Division ended in an exciting two-hole playoff.

5f57b6e01883d80c7978e97747ebaf11Warm weather welcomed participants to the first round of the IJGT Shamrock Shootout at Palmetto Hall where GeunTae Kim  (pictured left) of SuSeong-DaeGu, South Korea carded a 2-over-par 74 to take the lead in the Boys 15-19 Division. Kim had back-to-back birdies on Nos. 2 and 3, as well as 8 and 9 in the first round. On the back nine he carded birdies on Nos. 11, 13 and 17 to level out some of his trouble holes.

Although he was leading the division heading into the final round, Kim was not without competition. Saravit Kerdsinchai  of Nonthaburi, Thailand finished the first round with a 3-over-par 75, one stroke back of Kim. Oliver Lehman  of Bern, Switzerland was just three strokes back of Kim with 5-over-par 77.

Luckily, weather for the final round mirrored that of the first with sunny skies, warm temperatures and only a slight increase in wind speed. Kim began the round with a bogey on No. 1 but rebounded with three straight pars before his next bogey on No. 5 to shoot 2-over-par 38 on the front.

Kerdsinchai, however, made a statement starting with back-to-back birdies on Nos. 1 and 2 to take the lead. With a bogey on No. 4 and another birdie on No. 9, Kerdsinchai took the outright lead over Kim with a 2-under-par 34 on the front nine.

Kim was not defeated.

Kerdsinchai struggled on the back nine with bogeys on four holes and a double bogey on No. 14. Meanwhile, Kim was even on the back nine through No. 13 until he doubled No. 14. With another double bogey for Kim on No. 16, no one could be sure who would come out victorious. Kim birdied Nos. 17 and 18 and Kerdsinchai also birdied No. 18 to send both players into a playoff at 6-over-par 150 for the Event.

The playoff started on the par-5 15th hole where both players got up-and-down for par. On No. 16, the champion was decided when Kerdsinchai knocked his first shot into the hazard just short of the par-3 16th green and Kim hit it within 10 feet of the hole. Kim won the playoff and the Boys 15-19 Division title at the IJGT Shamrock Shootout. This was Kim’s first IJGT win.

“I was very nervous for my playoff,” Kim said. “I was fortunate to win.”

6bbcc6630e13ba733c72535b0acc8241Finishing behind Kim and second-place finisher, Kerdsinchai, was Clazic  Belts Low Final Round Award winner, Peter Cho  of Koyang, South Korea. Cho carded a 1-over-par 73 in the final round to finish the Event at 7-over-par 151.

In the Boys 14 & Under Division, Tennoshin Ogawa  (pictured right) of Ichinomiya-shi, Japan took an early lead as theKENTWOOL  Lo-Pro Award Winner with a 1-over-par 73. His closest contender was Taisuke Ono of Tokyo, Japan who carded a 6-over-par 78 in the first round.

Ogawa continued his success into the final round with a solid front-nine, 1-under-par 35. The back nine was more challenging for Ogawa who had bogeys on Nos. 10 and 14, and a double bogey on No. 13. Birdies on Nos. 11 and 17 propelled Ogawa to another 1-over-par 73, for a tournament total of 146, which won him the Event and the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award. This is Ogawa’s fifth victory during the 2012-2013 season.

“I played very well,” Ogawa said. “Everything felt very good and I was comfortable with my swing.”

Finishing behind Ogawa was Kevin Ying  of Shanghai, China with 18-over-par 162. Ono finished in third place with a tournament total of 165.

13f0f7dc407a329867b9ad8411f0af94 (pictured left) of Bundang-Gu, South Korea took home the title in the Girls Division after impressive rounds both days of the IJGT Shamrock Shootout. Lee led the division after winning the KENTWOOL Lo-Pro Award in the first round with a 7-over-par 79.

During the final round, Lee carded three birdies on the front nine on her way to a 2-under-par 34. She struggled on the back nine with four bogeys and three double bogeys, but luckily her front nine was strong enough to hold her lead and get her the victory with a 14-over-par 158. This is Lee’s second IJGT victory this season.

 

“I was putting really well,” Lee said. “I am looking forward to playing in the next event at Oldfield.”

Lee was awarded the Clazic Belts Low Final Round along with Moyu Sasaki  of Tokyo, Japan for carding 7-over-par 79.  Sasaki finished second with 15-over-par 159. Finishing in third place was Isidora Quevedo  of Santiago, Chile with 18-over-par 162.

The IJGT will make the next southeast tournament stop at Oldfield Golf Club  for the Low Country Junior , March 23-24. The Greg Norman design will test all aspects of the golf game and provide breathtaking views of South Carolina’s Lowcountry.

The Georgia Junior at Savannah Harbor – Final Results

Miles captures first victory at Savannah Harbor

Schneider Takes Home Georgia Junior Title

SAVANNAH, GA. – The International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) hosted the Georgia Junior Feb. 23-24 at The Club at Savannah Harbor. The IJGT Georgia Junior at Savannah Harbor featured 78 elite junior golfers from all over the world. Friday’s heavy rain and frigid temperatures made the course extra challenging for all of the competitors over the weekend. Will Miles  of Hilton Head Island, S.C. and Ceha Lee  of Bundang-Gu, South Korea battled the rain to prevail in the Boys 15-19 and Girls Divisions respectively, while Jan Schneiderof Erlangen, Germany took home his second title of the year by outlasting Will Thomson  of Pittsford, N.Y. by a single stroke in the Boys 14 & Under Division.

d13a9187fc23d7fb103f6830c96f76a9The Boys 15-19 Division  was the most competitive division of the tournament with the top 3 spots being separated by the smallest of margins, as Austin McCulloch  of Alexandria, Minn. and Ewen Ferguson  of Hilton Head Island, S.C. both posted an even-par 144 on the weekend, which put them tied for second place. The biggest surprise of all was Miles, who shocked the field after being down four strokes when the final round began. Miles, who was four strokes behind first round leader Chris Magi of Montreal, Canada, overcame all odds and took home his first championship victory in dramatic fashion.

“I knew it was going to take under par to win, so I played aggressive, but smart aggressive,” said Miles. “I didn’t go at all the flags, but I picked the right spots to go for it.”

Miles, who has never won a title, really wanted to bring home a first place finish at the Georgia Junior. “After finishing second in the past two tournaments it feels so good to finally bring home a first place finish,” said Miles.

With his 2-under-par 70 on Saturday, Magi earned himself the Lo-ProKENTWOOL Socks  Award which goes to the player who has the lowest first round score at every IJGT tournament.

 

In addition to his second place finish, McCulloch’s final round score of 4-under-par 68 was the best score on Sunday earning him the Clazic Belts  Low Final Round Award.

b9ffecf994aaf5a1131e3ea7f4d34b79In the Boys 14 & Under Division , Schneider took home his second division victory in only his third event on U.S. soil. The rain never affected Schneider’s play after posting an even-par 72 on Saturday in the soaking wet conditions. His impressive opening round was good enough to give him the lead heading into Sunday.

“It’s always good to have the lead after the first round, but I knew the second round was going to be tough,” said Schneider.

Schneider’s second round was one of the most exciting to watch with second place finisher Thomson nipping at his heels all day long. Thomson was able to equal Schneider’s Sunday total, but his one shot deficit from Saturday turned out to be the final margin, leaving him with his second straight runner-up finish by one stroke in as many weeks. James Wohler  of Savannah, Ga. rounded out the top three in the division with a 151 total on the weekend.

“It was a hard second round for me with Will [Thomson] being paired up with me,” said Schneider. “Will is such a good player, so I knew the second round was going to be tough.”

 

 

 

e0f037b01a2c0279371dc51cab8d5dcfIn the Girls Division , Lee fought off stiff competition to take home her first IJGT title of the season by posting a 1-over-par 145 total on the weekend. Lee, who was being pursued by second place finisher Cake Phuchanbanchob  of Chiang Mai, Thailand, and third place finisherMaggie Ashmore  of Kingston, Ga., began the weekend with a three stroke lead, and never looked back, as she took home the division title by two strokes.

“I just tried to stay calm going into Sunday,” said Lee. “I acted like I wasn’t in the lead, because knowing I was leading would make me feel more nervous.”

Lee’s 1-under-par 71 on Saturday, earned her the Lo-Pro KENTWOOL Socks Award which goes to the player who has the lowest first round score at every IJGT tournament.

For the Girls Division, the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award went to Phuchanbanchob and Ayaka Nakayama  of Kanagawa, Japan who both shot even-par 72 on Sunday at Savannah Harbor.

The next IJGT event will be Family Weekend at Port Royal  Mar. 2-3 on Hilton Head Island, S.C. The IJGT’s Family Weekend is always a hit with the parents, and this year will be no different as families will be traveling in from all over the globe to participate.

Golden Gate Junior at Presidio Golf Course (Major) – Final Results

Ralph Wins First IJGT Event at Presidio

Sborov Secures Major in Girls Division

SAN FRANCISCO – The International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) traveled out west this past weekend to host their second Major tournament of the Spring 2013 Season – the IJGT Golden Gate Junior Major Championship  at the beautiful Presidio Golf Course. As one of the oldest golf course west of the Mississippi River, this hilly and scenic Par-72 course played short, but difficult, tipping out at roughly 6400 yards in total. Although sunny for the entire weekend, 15-20 m.p.h. winds were not favorable for the junior golfers when dealing with the elevation changes around the golf course.

In the Boys 15-19 Division, scores averaged in the mid 80’s after round one, with the leader Nicholas Turner of Reno, Nev., sitting atop the leaderboard at 7-over-par 79. Hitting fairways and getting up and down around the greens allowed Turner to be even-par through his first six holes of the day. It was clear that several players felt frustration after their round, but many returned quickly to the practice green and range to prepare for their final round Sunday. Joshua Ralph  also of Reno, Nev., was one of these players who was within striking distance of Turner’s lead. After two birdies on the back nine on Saturday, Ralph was ready to go low Sunday with a strong desire to be in contention in the final round.

20d60a040669df21574302df27c3d2bdConditions for Sunday were comparable to round one, but players likeHarrison Holetz  of Incline Village, Nev., learned from their previous rounds. Adapting to the course and adjusting his game was necessary to compete for the title of ‘Major Champion’. Holetz, who shot a 9-over-par 81 in the first round, had a rough start to round two going 3-over-par through four holes. However, Holetz battled back, making three birdies on his back nine to finish with an even-par 36 and a 7-over-par 79 total. Round one leader Turner stayed in contention with 10 pars and one birdie to shoot a 81 for the final round, but it was not enough to beat out Ralph. With a 160 overall for the tournament, both Holetz and Turner finished tie for second place. Ralph, who had four birdies on the front nine remained focused and took control of the tournament, with a final round of 6-over-par 78. His tournament total of 158 was two strokes clear of second place.

When asked about the key to his success this weekend, Ralph had a one word answer. “Persistence. If I had a bad hole or a bad shot, I just persevered through the round,” commented Ralph.

Ralph’s final round 6-over-par 78 earned him the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award , which goes to the lowest score posted in round two of every IJGT tournament. More importantly, this earned Ralph the title of IJGT Major Champion.

1b782384b68b9b1b749bb3117a28fffaIn the Boys 14 & Under Division, Michael Tan  of Carmichael, Calif., used his impressive short game to his advantage with excellent chip shots and numerous one-putts. Tan posted an impressive score of 3-over-par 75 in round one. Also finishing strong for the day with three straight pars was Grant Leppek  of Rocklin, Calif., who was only five shots back of Tan in round one, posting an 8-over-par 80 for the day. Knowing that the course was playing tough, staying consistent was important for Leppek in his second round where he shot an 84 to give him a 164 tournament total, which earned him second place for the tournament.

Griffin Cooper  of Yerington, Nev., and Michael Bove  of Truckee, Calif., both had similar thoughts, hoping to post lower scores the second time through the course. After a frustrating 86 in round one, pars for Cooper were a saving grace, ending his second round with four of them to come back and shoot a 10-over-par 82 in round two. Consistency was Bove’s strategy after his round one of 84, and with five pars and one birdie on his back nine; he did just that posting another 84 for round two. Cooper and Bove finished tied for third place.

After getting off to a rough start and doubling the first hole, Tan bounced back with two birdies on the front nine to shoot a 9-over-par 81 overall for the second round. This earned Tan his first IJGT Major Championship title in his first ever IJGT event.

During the Awards Ceremony, Tan expressed views about Presidio Golf Course that were shared by many of the competitors. “I would like to thank the course. It was in great condition. There was lots of wind, and it was really tough,” said Tan.

Tan’s score of 3-over-par 75 on Saturday earned him the KENTWOOL Socks Lo-Pro Award , which goes to the player who shoots the lowest first round score in every IJGT tournament.

The Girls Division was by far the closest in score after the first round. 13-year-old Amelia McKee  from Paso Robles, Calif., hit her drives well off the tee to put her in great position for birdies and pars, finishing with an 8-over-par 80 for the first round. At one shot back, Alexandra Sborov  from Pleasanton, Calif., expressed some frustration with her round in the scoring area, but a great birdie on No. 18 enforced some positivity going into the final day. Avery French  of Laguna Niguel, Calif., a four-time IJGT winner last season, felt frustration as well after posting a round of 85, yet was eager to get back out on the course in round two to make a comeback.

McKee started her second round hitting a fantastic fairway bunker shot, which lead to a birdie. She followed that with three straight pars to extend her lead to two strokes. Unfortunately the back nine was a bit challenging with windy conditions, as McKee finished her round with an 86, to post a 166 overall total, and take home second place in the Girls Division.

McKee’s 8-over-par 80 earned her the KENTWOOL Socks Lo-Pro Award for the lowest first round score in the Girls Division.

French, spending a good amount of time on the range early in the morning on Sunday, kept it consistent from the first day, making six pars on the front nine. Unfortunately, putting became troublesome on the back nine, beginning with a double-bogey on ten. French finished third for the tournament, posting a tournament total of 169.

6bc0b7394e85d2ae60025ef24eb90ec8Sborov’s positivity paid off going into round two. Learning from her mistakes from the first round, consistency sealed the Major victory for her after putting together two nine-hole scores of 39, to finish at 159 overall giving her a seven stroke victory.

Sborov came into round two with a different mindset that allowed her to perform better. “Today I wanted to focus on myself and not so much the outcome,” said Sborov.

Sborov’s 6-over-par 78 on Sunday was the low round of the tournament in the Girls Division and also earned her the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award.

Over the course of the weekend, there were many great shots under these difficult conditions, yet none greater than Kent Kao’s  (Pinole, Calif.) hole-in-one of hole No. 13. This 175 yard Par-3 played extra difficult due to a tree that obstructed Kao’s view of the green from the teeing ground.

The next IJGT event will be Family Weekend  at Port Royal March 2-3 on Hilton Head Island, S.C. The IJGT’s family weekend is always a hit with the parents, and this year will be no different as families will be traveling in from all over to participate.

The Georgia Junior at Savannah Harbor – Final Results

The International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) hosted the Georgia Junior Feb. 23-24 at The Club at Savannah Harbor. The IJGT Georgia Junior at Savannah Harbor featured 78 elite junior golfers from all over the world. Friday’s heavy rain and frigid temperatures made the course extra challenging for all of the competitors over the weekend. Will Miles  of Hilton Head Island, S.C. and Ceha Lee  of Bundang-Gu, South Korea battled the rain to prevail in the Boys 15-19 and Girls Divisions respectively, while Jan Schneiderof Erlangen, Germany took home his second title of the year by outlasting Will Thomson  of Pittsford, N.Y. by a single stroke in the Boys 14 & Under Division.

Will MilesThe Boys 15-19 Division  was the most competitive division of the tournament with the top 3 spots being separated by the smallest of margins, as Austin McCulloch  of Alexandria, Minn. and Ewen Ferguson  of Hilton Head Island, S.C. both posted an even-par 144 on the weekend, which put them tied for second place. The biggest surprise of all was Miles, who shocked the field after being down four strokes when the final round began. Miles, who was four strokes behind first round leader Chris Magi of Montreal, Canada, overcame all odds and took home his first championship victory in dramatic fashion.

“I knew it was going to take under par to win, so I played aggressive, but smart aggressive,” said Miles. “I didn’t go at all the flags, but I picked the right spots to go for it.”

Miles, who has never won a title, really wanted to bring home a first place finish at the Georgia Junior. “After finishing second in the past two tournaments it feels so good to finally bring home a first place finish,” said Miles.

With his 2-under-par 70 on Saturday, Magi earned himself the Lo-Pro KENTWOOL Socks  Award which goes to the player who has the lowest first round score at every IJGT tournament.

In addition to his second place finish, McCulloch’s final round score of 4-under-par 68 was the best score on Sunday earning him the Clazic Belts  Low Final Round Award.

Jan SchneiderIn the Boys 14 & Under Division , Schneider took home his second division victory in only his third event on U.S. soil. The rain never affected Schneider’s play after posting an even-par 72 on Saturday in the soaking wet conditions. His impressive opening round was good enough to give him the lead heading into Sunday.

“It’s always good to have the lead after the first round, but I knew the second round was going to be tough,” said Schneider.

Schneider’s second round was one of the most exciting to watch with second place finisher Thomson nipping at his heels all day long. Thomson was able to equal Schneider’s Sunday total, but his one shot deficit from Saturday turned out to be the final margin, leaving him with his second straight runner-up finish by one stroke in as many weeks. James Wohler  of Savannah, Ga. rounded out the top three in the division with a 151 total on the weekend.

“It was a hard second round for me with Will [Thomson] being paired up with me,” said Schneider. “Will is such a good player, so I knew the second round was going to be tough.”

Ceha LeeIn the Girls Division , Lee fought off stiff competition to take home her first IJGT title of the season by posting a 1-over-par 145 total on the weekend. Lee, who was being pursued by second place finisher Cake Phuchanbanchob  of Chiang Mai, Thailand, and third place finisherMaggie Ashmore  of Kingston, Ga., began the weekend with a three stroke lead, and never looked back, as she took home the division title by two strokes.

“I just tried to stay calm going into Sunday,” said Lee. “I acted like I wasn’t in the lead, because knowing I was leading would make me feel more nervous.”

Lee’s 1-under-par 71 on Saturday, earned her the Lo-Pro KENTWOOL Socks Award which goes to the player who has the lowest first round score at every IJGT tournament.

For the Girls Division, the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award went to Phuchanbanchob and Ayaka Nakayama  of Kanagawa, Japan who both shot even-par 72 on Sunday at Savannah Harbor.

The next IJGT event will be Family Weekend at Port Royal  Mar. 2-3 on Hilton Head Island, S.C. The IJGT’s Family Weekend is always a hit with the parents, and this year will be no different as families will be traveling in from all over the globe to participate.

Golden Gate Junior at Presidio Golf Course (Major) – Final Results

SAN FRANCISCO – The International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) traveled out west this past weekend to host their second Major tournament of the Spring 2013 Season – the IJGT Golden Gate Junior Major Championship  at the beautiful Presidio Golf Course. As one of the oldest golf course west of the Mississippi River, this hilly and scenic Par-72 course played short, but difficult, tipping out at roughly 6400 yards in total. Although sunny for the entire weekend, 15-20 m.p.h. winds were not favorable for the junior golfers when dealing with the elevation changes around the golf course.

Joshua RalphIn the Boys 15-19 Division, scores averaged in the mid 80’s after round one, with the leader Nicholas Turner of Reno, Nev., sitting atop the leaderboard at 7-over-par 79. Hitting fairways and getting up and down around the greens allowed Turner to be even-par through his first six holes of the day. It was clear that several players felt frustration after their round, but many returned quickly to the practice green and range to prepare for their final round Sunday. Joshua Ralph  also of Reno, Nev., was one of these players who was within striking distance of Turner’s lead. After two birdies on the back nine on Saturday, Ralph was ready to go low Sunday with a strong desire to be in contention in the final round.

Conditions for Sunday were comparable to round one, but players likeHarrison Holetz  of Incline Village, Nev., learned from their previous rounds. Adapting to the course and adjusting his game was necessary to compete for the title of ‘Major Champion’. Holetz, who shot a 9-over-par 81 in the first round, had a rough start to round two going 3-over-par through four holes. However, Holetz battled back, making three birdies on his back nine to finish with an even-par 36 and a 7-over-par 79 total. Round one leader Turner stayed in contention with 10 pars and one birdie to shoot a 81 for the final round, but it was not enough to beat out Ralph. With a 160 overall for the tournament, both Holetz and Turner finished tie for second place. Ralph, who had four birdies on the front nine remained focused and took control of the tournament, with a final round of 6-over-par 78. His tournament total of 158 was two strokes clear of second place.

When asked about the key to his success this weekend, Ralph had a one word answer. “Persistence. If I had a bad hole or a bad shot, I just persevered through the round,” commented Ralph.

Ralph’s final round 6-over-par 78 earned him the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award , which goes to the lowest score posted in round two of every IJGT tournament. More importantly, this earned Ralph the title of IJGT Major Champion.

Michael TanIn the Boys 14 & Under Division, Michael Tan  of Carmichael, Calif., used his impressive short game to his advantage with excellent chip shots and numerous one-putts. Tan posted an impressive score of 3-over-par 75 in round one. Also finishing strong for the day with three straight pars was Grant Leppek  of Rocklin, Calif., who was only five shots back of Tan in round one, posting an 8-over-par 80 for the day. Knowing that the course was playing tough, staying consistent was important for Leppek in his second round where he shot an 84 to give him a 164 tournament total, which earned him second place for the tournament.

Griffin Cooper  of Yerington, Nev., and Michael Bove  of Truckee, Calif., both had similar thoughts, hoping to post lower scores the second time through the course. After a frustrating 86 in round one, pars for Cooper were a saving grace, ending his second round with four of them to come back and shoot a 10-over-par 82 in round two. Consistency was Bove’s strategy after his round one of 84, and with five pars and one birdie on his back nine; he did just that posting another 84 for round two. Cooper and Bove finished tied for third place.

After getting off to a rough start and doubling the first hole, Tan bounced back with two birdies on the front nine to shoot a 9-over-par 81 overall for the second round. This earned Tan his first IJGT Major Championship title in his first ever IJGT event.

During the Awards Ceremony, Tan expressed views about Presidio Golf Course that were shared by many of the competitors. “I would like to thank the course. It was in great condition. There was lots of wind, and it was really tough,” said Tan.

Tan’s score of 3-over-par 75 on Saturday earned him the KENTWOOL Socks Lo-Pro Award , which goes to the player who shoots the lowest first round score in every IJGT tournament.

Alexandra SborovThe Girls Division was by far the closest in score after the first round. 13-year-old Amelia McKee  from Paso Robles, Calif., hit her drives well off the tee to put her in great position for birdies and pars, finishing with an 8-over-par 80 for the first round. At one shot back, Alexandra Sborov  from Pleasanton, Calif., expressed some frustration with her round in the scoring area, but a great birdie on No. 18 enforced some positivity going into the final day. Avery French  of Laguna Niguel, Calif., a four-time IJGT winner last season, felt frustration as well after posting a round of 85, yet was eager to get back out on the course in round two to make a comeback.

McKee started her second round hitting a fantastic fairway bunker shot, which lead to a birdie. She followed that with three straight pars to extend her lead to two strokes. Unfortunately the back nine was a bit challenging with windy conditions, as McKee finished her round with an 86, to post a 166 overall total, and take home second place in the Girls Division.

McKee’s 8-over-par 80 earned her the KENTWOOL Socks Lo-Pro Award for the lowest first round score in the Girls Division.

French, spending a good amount of time on the range early in the morning on Sunday, kept it consistent from the first day, making six pars on the front nine. Unfortunately, putting became troublesome on the back nine, beginning with a double-bogey on ten. French finished third for the tournament, posting a tournament total of 169.

Sborov’s positivity paid off going into round two. Learning from her mistakes from the first round, consistency sealed the Major victory for her after putting together two nine-hole scores of 39, to finish at 159 overall giving her a seven stroke victory.

Sborov came into round two with a different mindset that allowed her to perform better. “Today I wanted to focus on myself and not so much the outcome,” said Sborov.

Sborov’s 6-over-par 78 on Sunday was the low round of the tournament in the Girls Division and also earned her the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award.

Over the course of the weekend, there were many great shots under these difficult conditions, yet none greater than Kent Kao’s  (Pinole, Calif.) hole-in-one of hole No. 13. This 175 yard Par-3 played extra difficult due to a tree that obstructed Kao’s view of the green from the teeing ground.

The next IJGT event will be Family Weekend  at Port Royal March 2-3 on Hilton Head Island, S.C. The IJGT’s family weekend is always a hit with the parents, and this year will be no different as families will be traveling in from all over to participate.

Carolina Championship at Kiawah Island (Major) – Final Results

Valdes Victorious in First IJGT Major
Santibanez Wins First Title at Kiawah Island
KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. – Bone chilling temperatures did not stop the International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) from returning to Kiawah Island Golf Resort to host the first Major Championship of 2013. The Carolina Championship at Kiawah Island  took place Feb. 16-17 and featured 106 elite junior golfers ages 10-19 representing 20 states, Washington D.C., and 18 countries competing for national recognition and double IJGT Merit Points. Despite the sub-freezing temperatures and wind gusts up to 20 miles per hour, Saravit Kerdsinchai  of Nonthaburi, Thailand and Ana Paula Valdes  of Morelia, Mexico came away with victories in the Boys 15-19 and Girls Divisions, respectively. Alejandro Santibanez  of San Luis Potosi, Mexico took home his first IJGT victory in the Boys 14 & Under Division.
The first round of the Carolina Championship was held on the Turtle Point course. Cold temperatures, strong wind and light bursts of rain made the course a true challenge for all participants. The final round of this IJGT Major event was held at the toughest course in America – the home of the 1991 Ryder Cup and the 2012 PGA Championship – the Ocean Course. Freezing temperatures and oceanic winds paired with a course designed by golf’s most challenging course designer, Pete Dye, made for an exciting round.
0f136501ad26a7a9ac93d72521b581daIn the Boys 15-19 Division, Kerdsinchai’s consistency was the key to his overall success. Carding 6-over-par 78 at Turtle Point put him tied for fourth heading into the final round at the Ocean Course. Kerdsinchai started the final round with a double bogey on No. 10 but followed up with three pars in a row.
“I didn’t feel like I played my best,” Kerdsinchai said of his final round. “I just tried not to make any mistakes.”
Kerdsinchai finished the final round with another 6-over-par 78 to propel him to a tournament total of 12-over-par 156.
“It feels good to win,” he said. “I feel confident and I can move forward now.”
Finishing just behind Kerdsinchai was Will Miles  of Hilton Head Island, S.C., who carded 16-over-par 160. Finishing in third place was Patrick Albanesi  of Avon, Conn., with 17-over-par 161, and tied for fourth wereColeman Self  of Greenwood, S.C., and Bryson Nimmer  of Bluffton, S.C., carding 18-over-par 162.
The KENTWOOL  Lo-Pro Award was given to Nicholas Rodriguez  of East Northport, N.Y., Albanesi, andWilliam Sheedy  of Washington, D.C., who carded the low first-round score of 3-over-par 75. The Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award went to Kerdsinchai and Ryan McCarthy  of Rockville Center, N.Y., with 6-over-par 78.
c8f54416908cbfbf39d93139819aa4f1In the Girls Division, Valdes carded an impressive 1-over-par 73 at Turtle Point along with Phimnipha Wongwaiwate  of Chiang Mai, Thailand andAracelly Maria Jimenez Rios  of Merida, Mexico, to receive the KENTWOOL Lo-Pro Award and share the lead heading into the final round. Valdes carded pars on Nos. 1 and 2 but faulted with a double bogey on No. 3. A late-round birdie on the par-5 No. 16 after a handful of pars and a few bogeys on the back launched her to 5-over-par 77 for the round and 6-over-par 150 for the event.
“I’m actually really happy [about my round today] because the conditions were really tough,” Valdes said. “I hit the ball really well even with the strong wind.”
This is Valdes’s second win of the 2012-2013 season after her victory at the Florida Swing  at Falcon’s Fire Golf Club in Sept.
Finishing behind Valdes was Wongwaiwate with 11-over-par 155. In third place was Tokyo, Japan native and winner of the Clazic Belts Low Final Round, Moyu Sasaki  who carded 4-over-par 76 at the Ocean Course to finish 13-over-par 157.
08cacedfeebd15585e0c374806a27231For the Boys 14 & Under Division, Santibanez began the final round two shots behind the leader after carding a 5-over-par 77 at Turtle Point.
“I was really nervous for the first round,” Santibanez “I started hitting greens and fairways and I calmed down.”
Santibanez said that the transition from Turtle Point to the Ocean Course proved to be difficult and reflected in his score.
“I had to change my club selection,” Santibanez said, “I had to change the type of shot I hit because of the wind.”
In the second round, Santibanez carded eight pars for the round and birdies on Nos. 8 and 16. Santibanez had a tight final-round race to finish against Pittsford, N.Y., resident William Thomson , and both carded 7-over-par 79 in the final round. Ultimately, it was Santibanez’s first round that propelled him to his first IJGT victory with 12-over-par 156.
“I’m going to feel really confident [heading into future events], now that I have won,” he said.
Thomson finished second place for the event carding 13-over-par 157. Sheedy finished in third place for the Boys 14 & Under Division with 18-over-par 162.
The IJGT will host two events Feb. 23-24 – the Golden Gate Junior at Presidio Golf Course  in San Francisco and the Georgia Junior at Savannah Harbor  in Savannah, Ga.

“My drives were really good off the tee,” Spencer-White said, “I hit almost all of the fairways.”
