In the first Major Championship of the 2014-2015 season, the IJGT headed to Out Door Country Club in York, Pa., to host more than 30 juniors on the hunt for the title. The fans have spoken and in addition to congratulating Joe Parrini, a York native, on his first Major win in his new division, they also chose his photo as this week’s IJGT Photo of the Week!
Parrini, in his fourth season with the IJGT, competed for the first time in the Boys 15-19 Division in a Major Championship. Before graduating to the new division, Parrini competed in the Boys 14 & Under Division and participated in four Majors.
Parrini wasted no time warming up at the Major Championship at Out Door CC as he took an early divisional lead in round one. Highlighted by an eight-hole par-or-better streak that included three birdies, Parrini posted a 1-over-par 73 to open his tournament. Ready for more, he returned for round two and added 13 pars and back-to-back birdies on holes 12 and 13 to finish strong with a 74. His two-day total 147 was enough to earn him his first Major title as a member of the Boys 15-19 Division and his first win of the season.
