The IJGT Summer Series continued to heat up as the Summer Series at Olde Stonewall took place July 8-9, 2014, in Ellwood City, Pa., and the Summer Series at Oyster Reef took place July 11-12, 2014, in Hilton Head, S.C. Both events featured juniors from numerous countries and states. As chosen by the fans, Matthew Barto of Leechburg, Pa., and Yu Lun Huang of Taiwan, are both featured in this week’s IJGT Photo of the Week.
In the northeast, Barto nabbed first in the Boys 15-19 Division at Olde Stonewall. His scores of 71-74–145 overall was eight strokes ahead of the competition. Barto’s round was highlighted by 11 pars and two birdies.
In the southeast, despite the tournament being cut short because of inclement weather, Huang’s first round score was enough to finish first in a tiebreaker. A birdie on the par-5 No. 2 was the hole that determined her victory over Nicole Lu who also tallied a score of 74. Huang was in Hilton Head to train with the IJGA and the event at Oyster Reef was her first IJGT event.
Congratulations to both Barto and Huang and we look forward to seeing them both again in future tournaments!
