Last weekend, April 25-26, 2015, the IJGT Northeast Tour traveled to Havre de Grace, Md., to host the Major Championship at Bulle Rock while the IJGT Southeast Tour remained in Hilton Head Island, S.C., to host the IJGT Island Open at Palmetto Hall. Juniors competed for IJGT Merit Points, national rankings and North American Junior Amateur exemptions during the two-day, 36-hole events.
The Boys 14 & Under Division champion at Palmetto Hall, McCloskey carded a 78 in round one and an 85 in round two to finish with a 163 tournament total. His division-best six-hole par-or-better streak lasted from holes No. 3 through 8 in round one. The victory was McCloskey’s second consecutive IJGT win; he finished first in the IJGT Oldfield Junior earlier this month.
Cleary carded five birdies during the Major Championship at Bulle Rock to earn the EyeLine Golf Golden Putter award for the Girls Division. Her 172 tournament total landed her in fifth place. She found the most success on the par-5 second hole and the par-4 14th hole, both of which she birdied in both rounds.
