O’Donovan nabs IJGT Player of the Week honors – Sept. 9, 2014

The IJGT returned to the Colleton River Plantation Club, official site of the 68th U.S. Junior Amateur for 2015, on September 6-7, 2014, to host the IJGT Junior. After an opening round of beautiful weather, mother nature had other plans for round two. Inclement weather halted juniors in the middle of play, requiring tournament officials to cut the tournament short.

With a first round score of 78 to finish in the top-10 of the Boys 15-19 Division, Jack O’Donovan of Pittsford, N.Y., earns IJGT Player of the Week honors.

In his third season with the IJGT, O’Donovan entered the field for the IJGT Junior in the Boys 15-19 Division for the first time in his career. Despite the longer yardages of the new division, O’Donovan recorded his lowest 18-hole score to date (78).

The highlight of his round was two birdies on holes No. 9 and 14. The two birdies ties his record for the most birdies in a single round of IJGT tournament play. O’Donovan finished tied for 6th at Colleton River, his sixth consecutive top-10 finish.

Congratulations to Jack O’Donovan on both his Player of the Week honors as well as his performance in the IJGT Junior!
