In the Boys 15-19 Division, J.T. Bloomer of Boise, Idaho, and Ryan Hicks of Santa Monica, Calif., will be two of the players going head-to-head. Bloomer is competing in his second season on the IJGT, and will look to continue his streak of hot play after tying for second at the Pacific Coast Open at Half Moon Bay on Nov. 16-17. Hicks will be making the first appearance of his third season with the IJGT after placing a remarkable top ten in all three of his events during the 2012-2013 season.
The Boys 14 & Under Division will feature Cole Skach of Reno, Nev., Mikee Ordona of Upland, Calif., and Chandler Fanticola of Newport Beach, Calif. Skach is in his second season with the IJGT, and this will be his third event of the season after playing in the NorCal Junior at Darkhorse Golf Club and the Pacific Coast Open at Half Moon Bay, where he placed third and tied for fourth, respectively. Ordona, a four-season veteran with the IJGT, will be looking for his first win of the season after coming in second place at the West Coast Kickoff at TPC Scottsdale, and landing in a tie for fourth place at the Pacific Coast Open at Half Moon Bay. Fanticola is a newcomer to the IJGT, and will be looking to make a strong start in his first-ever IJGT Event.
The Girls Division will also see a fresh face in Madeleine Garay. The La Jolla, Calif., native will be eager to make a great first impression on the tour and grab a respectable finish in her initial IJGT Event!
