The IJGT traveled to Kiawah Island Resort in Kiawah Island, S.C. February 15-16, 2014 to host the Major Championship. Round one was held on the Jack Nicklaus designed Turtle Point Golf Club. The final round was held on the famed Ocean Course, which has hosted events such as the 1991 Ryder Cup and 2012 PGA Championship. Strong winds during the first day created a challenging round for the competitors, while day two was ideal for the elite competitive field.
This week’s Photo of the Week features Ritwik Jain of New Delhi, India, the sixth place finisher in the Boys 15-19 Division.
Jain came into the Major Championship at Kiawah after a three-way tie for ninth place at IJGT’s Island Open at Dolphin Head on February 8-9, 2014. He played a strong and consistent tournament scoring 81 in both rounds, tying for sixth on the weekend in his division. Jain hopes to continue his pattern of placing in the top 10 in the Georgia Junior at Savannah Harbor February 22-23, 2014.
Coming in a close second for Photo of the Week was Lee Hammerschmidt who also had a solid 13 likes on his photo from this weekend.
