IJGT ELITE News
May 20-31, 2015
Many of the IJGT ELITE playing in the professional ranks had a solid showing last weekend on tour. IJGT alumna, Kelly Shon of Port Washington, N.Y., finished in a tie for third place at the ShopRite LPGA Classic presented by Acer. The tournament was held on the Bay Course at the Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club. As a junior, Shon competed in an IJGT event in 2006 on the Pines Course at Seaview finishing in a tie for eighth place. Shon finished the tournament at 5-under and collected her best finish in an LPGA event during her rookie year on tour. Finishing in a tie with Shon was fellow IJGT alumna, Morgan Pressel of Boca Raton, Fla. Pressel had the lead going into the final round, but after a 2-over 73, she settled for a respectful third-place finish.
On the Web.com Tour, Richy Werenski of South Hadley, Mass., finished in 11th place at the Rex Hospital Open at TPC Wakefield Plantation in Raleigh, N.C. This was Werenski’s best finish on the Web.com Tour this season, which is his first as a professional.
