Cipolla, Ono & Littlefield among those to nab IJGT Player of the Week honors – May 4, 2014

NORTHEAST TOUR

VICTOR, N.Y.- The IJGT returned to Ravenwood Golf Club for the Rochester Open at Ravenwood on May 3-4, 2014. The course is a favorite of the players in the northeast and led to a strong field. Although round one saw light rain, the conditions were much better for scoring than on Sunday during round two. The final round saw temperatures only getting up into the mid 40’s with gusts of up to 50 mph. Despite the tough conditions, many players managed to shoot impressive rounds, including Peyton Steigerwald of Penfield, N.Y., and Maren Cipolla of Lewiston, N.Y.

 

PEYTON

Steigerwald, who was playing in his first tournament of the year, secured a second-place finish in part to an impressive final round 73. Steigerwald had a solid round on Saturday, shooting a first-round 80, highlighted by 12 pars.  On day two, the Penfield, New York, native shot the low round for the tournament, firing an impressive 73. Facing tough conditions, Steigerwald managed two birdies on the front nine. His final round showed consistency again, with 13 pars and only one bogey and a double bogey.  On both days of the tournament, the 2015 graduate made par on the 10th through 16th holes. For his great round on day two, Steigerwald secured the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award for the boys. We wish Peyton the best of luck and hope to see him soon.

 


cip

Cipolla, playing in just her third IJGT tournament, had a strong finish thanks to her consistent play throughout the weekend. In her first round, she never scored higher than bogey, en route to a score of 83. Going in to the final round, she was just four strokes off the lead and in contention for her first IJGT victory. The high winds caused trouble for all of the competitors, but Cipolla was again consistent throughout the round and avoided any high numbers. While the winds caused a lot of difficulty on the par-3 holes over the weekend, Cipolla played them especially well at just three over par. She finished the weekend with a total score of 170 and her second top 3 finish. We wish Cipolla the best of luck throughout the rest of the season and into summer.

 

SOUTHEAST TOUR

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. – The IJGT hosted the IJGT SC Callaway Jr. World Qualifier at the challenging Golden Bear Golf Club in Hilton Head Island, S.C., May 3-4, 2014, as the 2014 Spring Schedule nears the end. The Jack Nicklaus inspired course is true test with tough greens, narrow fairways and many shot-altering trees. Taisuke Ono of Tokyo, Japan, and Jasmine Chee of Hong Kong, China, were up to the challenge and earned themselves IJGT Player of the Week honors.

OnoIn his 11th tournament of the 2013-2014 IJGT season, Ono finished his first round at a 2-over-par 74, five shots behind leader, Parathakorn Suyasri of Chonburi, Thailand. Ono was not satisfied and was hoping for the coveted opportunity to play in the Callaway Junior World Championship. Ono came out firing during Sunday’s final round, beginning his second round on the front nine at 4-under par, 32, with a stretch of 3 birdies in four holes. Ono finished round two with nine pars, five birdies, and four bogeys to finish 1-under, with tournament scores of 74-71—145. His 145 tournament score left him to faceoff with Suyasri in a sudden death playoff for the chance to compete in the world’s largest junior golf tournament, the Callaway Junior World Championship. Although Ono played exceptionally well, Suyasri came out victorious in the playoff. Ono’s overcame the different obstacles to post a final round of 1-under-par to earn the Clazic Low Final Round Award. We congratulate Ono on his exceptional performance in his personal best finish of the 2013 -2014 IJGT seaso, and look forward to seeing him compete in the 2014 IJGT Bridgestone Tournament Of Champions, May 24-26, 2014, in Orlando, Fla.

CheeIn the Girls Division, Chee trailed by five strokes after round one behind leader, Yuki Nakayama, of Kawasakishi, Japan. With a round-one score of 78, Chee found herself in eighth place. With great focus, Chee prepared mentally for her final round and came back for Sunday’s final round by shaving six strokes off of her first round score, including two birdies, two bogeys and 14 pars. Chee earned herself the Clazic’s Low Final Round Award for the Girls Division, shooting an even par 72. Her determination and focus on her precision and short game elevated Chee to second place at Golden Bear, with a total tournament score of 150. Chee is scheduled to compete in the 2014 spring season finale, May 24-26 in Orlando, FL, at IJGT Bridgestone Tournament of Champions.

The course was designed by an Illinois native, D.A. Weibring, and includes a stretch of holes that is set upon the Rock River, made for an exciting and challenging event. Connor Littlefield of Waukee, Iowa, and Ashley Childers of Mt. Vernon, Montana, both have received IJGT Player of the Week honors.

In the second round, Littlefield only carded three bogeys, while also knocking in three birdies and 12 pars. He finished the round with an even-par 71, a 12-stroke improvement over his first-round score, to earn a share of second place with Matt Henderson, of Des Peres, Montana. Littlefield’s final round even-par 71 was the lowest round shot by anybody else in the boys’ division, earning him the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award.
