As we near the conclusion of October and gear up for November, the IJGT traveled both south and north for events on October 18-19, 2014. The IJGT’s Southeast Tour visited Savannah Quarters Country Club to host the Georgia Open, an event that featured a field of more than 80 juniors. Weather began with a fall crispness before the sun warmed things up. This week’s IJGT Photo of the Week from the Georgia Open, as decided by the fans, features Conor Bryne of Dublin, Ireland.
Playing in his third IJGT event of his career, Bryne used scores of 76 and 79 to earn him his third consecutive top-20 finish. The highlight of Bryne’s performance at the Georgia Open was four birdies, two of which were on long par-5 holes, and 20 pars. In just three events, Bryne has racked up 11 total birdies and carries a scoring average of 76. This is the second consecutive week that Bryne has been selected for our Photo of the Week. Congratulations Conor!
While the IJGT’s Southeast Tour took over Savannah Quarters Country Club, the Northeast Tour visited Penn State University to host the College Series at Penn State on the campus’ Blue Course. The northern weather has begun to create an added challenge for juniors on already difficult courses. This week’s IJGT Photo of the Week from the northeast features College Series Champion, Douglas Kulikowski of Pittsford, N.Y.
In his fourth event, Kulikowski nabbed his second IJGT victory by two shots. Kulikowski combined scores of 73 and 74 for a tournament total 147 with a performance highlighted by seven total birdies and 19 pars. His 147 ties his IJGT career best two-day score and the win is his third top-five finish. Congratulations Douglas!
