Hershey, Pa. – The first stop on the IJGT’s fall season was at the Hershey Country Club in on August 30-31, 2014, for the Labor Day Classic. Beautiful weather, competitive play and wonderful hospitality from the Hershey Country Club employees combined for an ideal weekend of golf. The IJGT is proud to award the Player of the Week honors to Michael Reed-Price of Dresher, Pa., of the Boys 15-19 Division and Vienna Winalski of West Hartford, Conn., of the Girls Division.
Reed-Price was unpleased with his first round score, but recovered by shooting a 2-over-par 73 in his final round. He recorded a score of par or better on 16 holes and had a streak of eight straight pars to begin the round. With a birdie on the difficult par-4 No. 17, Reed-Price was able to improve upon his first round score by a staggering 11 strokes.
After a slow start to the tournament, Winalski bounced back in her final round also improving by 11 strokes. Winalski’s determination to improve was evident as she was able to score equal or better than she did in round one on all but two holes. Her 11 stroke improvement was one of the largest improvement of scores in the Girls Division.
Congratulations to Winalski and Reed-Price on their accomplishments. The IJGT looks forward to seeing these kinds of performances continue as we move on with the rest of our fall tour!
