IJGT celebrates the NCAA’s Early Signing Period with an IJGT Photo of the Week

November 12-19, 2014, served as the NCAA’s early signing period. For many IJGT juniors, the week-long period meant the lengthy search for the college of the future was over. More than 20 juniors playing on the IJGT put on their new school colors, pulled out their finest pens and made their commitments by signing their National Letters of Intent (NLI).

“A binding agreement between a prospective student-athlete and an NLI member institution,” the NLI establishes a student-athlete’s intent to attend a particular university and to participate in a given sport.

Those IJGT members who participated in the early signing:

Bunyaporn “Nat” Zeng University of Wisconsin
Connor McKay Lipscomb University
Masato Yoshitsugu Hawai’i Pacific University
TJ Kaczan California State University – Bakersfield
J.D. Moore St. Peters University
Aaron Terrazas Oklahoma University
Isidora Nilsson University of South Carolina
Min Yi “Samantha” Huang University of North Texas
Cara Basso Penn State University
Will Hicks Erskine College
Chomchana “Cake” Phuchanbanchob California State University – Northridge
Yeji Shin Georgia Southern University
Will Miles University of South Carolina
Rachel Corry University of Virginia
Kelly Whaley University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill
Thomas Avant Drake University
Kelly Anderson Northern Illinois University
Derrick Villarreal Charleston Southern University
Carter Ehms Cedarville University
Ryan Rose – Rutgers University
Tyler Dierwechter Stetson University
Clementina Rodriguez University of Washington
Keshav Sharma Erskine University
Kasidy Beckel Radford University
Emily Mills – Rutgers University

To celebrate our juniors, we shared photos of each junior as he or she proudly signed the National Letter of Intent. Chomchana “Cake” Phuchanbanchob and her coach, Richard Wedzik, are featured in this week’s special edition of the Photo of the Week.

Team Canada takes home the John Clark Trophy in 2014 Euro Junior Cup

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland – IJGT’s Team USA took to Drumoig Golf Club today, August 8, 2014, for the final round of the 2014 Euro Junior Golf Cup in St. Andrews, Scotland.  The weather was perfect when the teams took to the course but changed very quickly as the teams rounded the turn.  The inclement weather lead to a cancellation of the round in which only one complete group had finished.  At the conclusion of tournament, Canadian Junior Golf Association’s (CJGA) Team Canada finished with 43.5 points and took home the John Clark Trophy.  Following in second was FIFE’s Team Scotland with 41.5 Points in third was Team USA with 32 points.

Team USA played well again in the incomplete final round but could not come away with the points needed.  Danny Dougherty of Wilmington, Del., continued his hot streak winning both points and making his final total five and a half points to lead Team USA.  Also playing well and grabbing two points for Team USA in round three were playing captain, Cara Basso of Downingtown, Pa., John Kalavritinos of Potomac, Md., and Christopher Chiminski of Penns Park, Pa.  Ryan Hicks of Santa Monica, Calif., once again exhibited a strong performance adding a point and a half.   Also contributing to Team USA’s points were Jack O’Donovan of Pittsford, N.Y., and Dylan Plis of Camillus, N.Y., who each carded a point of their own.  Rounding out the scoring was Michael Ordona of Upland, Calif., who secured a half-point for Team USA.

After the event, non-playing co-captain, Zach Pennington stated, “I am very impressed with not only how our team played today but how we represented the red, white and blue.   We are truly honored to wear these colors in match play against two great teams.  The Canadians and Scots were great competitors and they played well all week.  I am proud of what we did here in Scotland as we arrive home with our head held high.”

Euro Junior Cup Round Two: Strong performance by Basso keeps Team USA close

 

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland – IJGT’s Team USA took to Leven Links for the second round of the 2014 Euro Junior Golf Cup on August 7, 2014.  Weather was beautiful and the course was in fabulous condition.  Leven Links sits right off of the sea bringing in strong winds that changed throughout the round.  This proved as a true test for Team USA as they fell back in points, now trailing the Canadian Junior Golf Association’s (CJGA) Team Canada by nine points and FIFE Team Scotland by seven and a half points.  After two rounds, the standings have Team Canada with 29.5 points, Team Scotland with 28 points and Team USA with 20.5 points.

The Americans were led by team captain, Cara Basso of Downingtown, Pa., who dominated the entire round and won each of her matches.  Basso’s round was followed by the match featuring Danny Dougherty of Wilmington, Del., who once played well for the second consecutive round and won one and a half points.  Each winning a point of his own for the USA was Christopher Chiminski of Penns Park, Pa., John Kalavritinos of Potomac, Md., Ryan Hicks of Santa Monica, Calif., Tanner Elder of Jefferson City, Mo., and Jack O’ Donovan of Pittsford, N.Y.   The remaining half-point for Team USA was earned by Michael Ordona of Upland, Calif.

After round two, non-playing co-captain, Molly Moore stated, “The results may show that we are behind but I am proud of this team and know that they played tough today. There were a lot of close matches that really could have gone either way. The bus ride home was energetic and Team USA is ready to battle back tomorrow. This will be an interesting finish from an exciting three days of matchplay.”

Team USA finishes its time in Scotland with the final round of play at Drumoig Golf Club in St. Andrews.  Tee times begin promptly at noon local time.

2014 Bridgestone Tournament of Champions – Final results

Furuya wins his first Tournament of Champions appearance

Oishi and Sukaree victorious in their first-ever IJGT event

ORLANDO, Fla. – The IJGT hosted the 2014 Bridgestone Tournament of Champions on May 24-26, 2014 at Grand Cypress Golf Club. The season-ending tournament was sponsored by Bridgestone Golf and featured a field of 129 juniors representing 17 states and 15 countries. Juniors competed in humid weather with temperatures in the 90s for AJGA stars, national rankings and special tournament exemptions.

DSC_0832Ryoto Furuya of Wesley Chapel, Fla., led the Boys 15-19 Division all three rounds en route to his championship title. In his first Tournament of Champions appearance, Furuya began competition play by carding par or better on 17 of 18 holes in his opening round. Using the 4-under-par score in round one as momentum, Furuya returned for round two to post his lowest score of the tournament, a 5-under-par score of 67. He carried his lead into the final round and despite carding his highest score of the three-day tournament, he went on to secure the title of champion with score of 68-67-75 – 210 overall. A staggering 13 total birdies and a scoring average of 70, the lowest average of the tournament, highlighted Fuyura’s victory.

Finishing in second place was Keshav Sharma of New Delhi, India, helped by 12 birdies and one eagle to tally scores of 73-70-71 – 214 overall. Rounding out the Boys 15-19 Division was Geuntae Kim of Daegu, South Korea, with scores of 71-75-70 – 216 overall. Kim’s final-round score of 70 was the lowest in both boys divisions, earning him the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award. This award is given to the boy and girl who shoot the lowest score in the final tournament round.

“The first few holes I was very nervous. On the first hole, unfortunately I hit it right and went on to make a double bogey but after the front nine, I still had a lead. I didn’t worry about it, stayed strong and hung in there and managed to come out with a victory,” said Furuya.

DSC_0030Atsuya Oishi of Hiroshima, Japan, turned his first IJGT appearance into a lasting impression as he turned his three-day lead into a victory. In the Boys 14 & Under Division, Oishi began the tournament with his best round where he compiled five birdies and an eagle for a round-one score of 67. The 5-under-par score gave him a four-stroke lead going into round two where three birdies were the highlight of his score of 76. After adding two additional birdies in the final round, Oishi totaled 10 birdies to tie for the most birdies in the Boys 14 & Under Division. He finished the tournament with scores of 67-76-74 – 217.

Just two strokes behind him in second was Ryota Furuhashi of Shizuoka, Japan, who carded scores of 73-76-70 – 219 overall. Furuhashi’s 2-under-par score of 70 also made him a Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award winner. In third was Sampson Zheng of Kissimmee, Fla., finishing with scores of 71-75-74 – 220 overall.

When he compared the New Course to the East/North combination he played each of the three days, Oishi said, “The East/North Courses had too much rough which was tricky. That’s why I liked the New Course better.”

DSC_0101In a tight race in the Girls Division, Kornkamol Sukaree of Bangkok, Thailand, edged out second-place finisher Cara Basso of Downingtown, Pa., for first in in her first-ever IJGT event. Basso came out strong to lead the division after round one, posting a 1-under-par score of 71. In a close second, Sukaree posted back-to-back scores of 73 in rounds one and two to position herself tied for the lead with Basso heading into the final round. With the championship in reach for both, Sukaree tallied her tournament-best four birdies and 10 pars in round three to secure the victory. Sukaree finished the tournament with scores of 73-73-72 – 218 overall. Her round-three even-par score of 72 earned her the girl’s Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award.

Carding just one less birdie than Sukaree in round three, Basso finished in second by one stroke with scores of 71-75-73 – 219 overall. Rounding out the Girls Division in third was Yunjie Zhang of Haikou City, China, with scores of 76-73-73 – 222.

“I just tried to play the best I could each day. My approach shots were really good,” said Sukaree.

In addition to the three-round tournament, the weekend included additional events for family and friends. Following registration and the practice rounds, juniors participated in the Bridgestone Longest Drive Competition and enjoyed a welcome reception at Grand Cypress Golf Club. On  Saturday, May 25, 2014, it was an evening of fun and thrills at two Universal parks.

Basso, Weiss among those that earn IJGT Player of the Week honors – March 22-23, 2014

Northeast Tour

Malvern, Pa. – The IJGT continued the Northeast Tour with the Philly Challenge at White Manor March 22-23, 2014. While snow threatened the likelihood of the tournament early on in the week, sunny skies and wind helped to clear the course in time for the event. The staff at White Manor Country Club worked diligently to ensure that the course was prepared for its first golf of the season. Players enjoyed uncharacteristically warm temperatures in the mid-60s during round one but wind gusts up to 20 mph required the golfers to adjust their shots. Despite cooler temperatures, round two saw lots of great golf and many players improving on their scores, including Brendan Bacskai, of Berwyn, Pa., and Cara Basso, of Downingtown, Pa., who earned Player of the Week honors from the Northeast Tour.

bacskaiBacskai competed in his second IJGT event of the year in the Boys 15-19 Division. He played in the College Series at the University Of Maryland in early October 2014, finishing T10. During the first round at White Manor Country Club, Bacskai carded six pars and one birdie in tough conditions on his way to a 10-over-par, 81, to tie for 17th. Bacskai was determined to bounce back and move up the leader board in the final round. He did just that, playing very consistent and carding 12 pars and one birdie in less windy conditions and cutting six strokes off his first-round total for a final round of 75. Overall, Bacskai finished with an 81-75–156 overall, on his way to a tie for a 2nd place. We are all excited and looking forward to seeing what Bacskai can do the rest of the 2014 IJGT season.

 

bassoBasso, playing in her fourth season with the IJGT, added another top-five finish to her tournament resume after coming back from a tough first round. While she handled the par-3s very well in round one, scoring par or better on three of four, she had difficulty navigating the remaining holes. A great deal of resiliency allowed her to put round one behind her en route to improving her score by 14 strokes in round two. Basso matched or beat her score on all but one hole in the final round, including a birdie on the par-five No. 6, after struggling with it in round one. Her final round score of 76 earned her the Clazic Belts Low Final Round award, along with Brynn Walker. We wish Basso the best of luck and look forward to watching her compete in future tournaments.

Southeast Tour

Columbia, S.C. – The IJGT hosted the Palmetto Open at the Columbia Country Club March 22-23, 2014. Despite forecasted rain, the weather held out for a dry two-day tournament. The weather was perfect for golf with sunny skies, tame winds, and temperatures in the mid 60s. Temperatures dropped into the mid 50s and overcast skies threatened rain on day two. This week’s Southeast Players of the Week were John Weiss of Columbia, S.C., and Milleina Ohara of Meguro-Ku, Japan.

WeissNew to the IJGT, Weiss, had an impressive showing at the course he trains regularly, finishing second in the Boys 14 and Under Division. Weiss started strong in round one shooting an impressive 78. That round included four birdies and seven pars. Facing tougher conditions on day two, Weiss shot an 80, which included 11 pars and a birdie on the tough par-4 No.6 hole. After regulation, Weiss was tied to force a playoff for first. Though his bogey on the playoff hole was not enough for a victory, Weiss made a bold introduction for himself on the tour.

 

 

 

M. OharaOhara, playing in her third tournament since winning at Country Club of Hilton Head got off to a shaky start in round one. She finished the first round with a score of 82 highlighted by nine pars. Determined to reach the winners circle, Ohara tallied two birdies and ten pars to improve her first-round score by five strokes. She finished the tournament with a total of 159 to place third. The third-place finish becomes her third top-five finish in the 2013-2014 season.

Congratulations to our Players of the Week from both the Northeast and Southeast Tours!

 

 

The Final Challenge at Hershey Links – Final Results

Marone earns second win of the season

Basso holds on for victory 

HUMMELSTOWN, Pa. – The International Junior Golf Tour’s (IJGT) Northeast Tour was in Hummelstown, Pa. on Oct 26-27 for The Final Challenge at Hershey Links. The two-day, 36-hole tournament was hosted by Hershey Links, with players competing for national rankings and IJGT Merit Points. The field consisted of 78 players, ages 10-19, representing seven states.

With Hershey Links set to close for good in early November, the course played host to its final IJGT Event. A common stop on the IJGT schedule, Hershey Links is situated on 175 acres of what used to be farmland. The course, a former host of a Division III National Championship, features a wide ravine that comes into play on seven holes, as well as numerous ponds, bunkers, and tall fescue throughout the course. For the Boys 15-19 Division, the event was competed at 6,658 yards, with the Boys 14 & Under Division playing at 5,919 yards, and the Girls Division at 5,648 yards. Due to the course’s location, wind played a huge factor all weekend, with gusts up to 30 miles per hour and temperatures in the 40s.

The Boys 15-19 Division came down to the final hole, and for a second time this season, Eamon Marone of Belvidere, N.J., came out on top.

marone hlMarone opened his tournament by shooting a 40 on the front nine. He turned things around quickly, shooting an even-par 36 on the back, including a birdie on No. 10. His score of 76 put him one back of Nick Geiman of York, Pa., who shot a first-round 75 to take the lead. David Ross of Lorton, Va., also shot a 76, and joined Geiman and Marone in the final pairing during the final round. Brandon Berry of Great Falls, Va., Jack Peden of Vienna, Va., and Ethan Bunzel of Scarsdale, N.Y., all fired a 77 to sit two strokes back.

Marone got off to a blistering start during the final round. He birdied the opening hole, a dogleg right par-5, and then drove the green at the third hole. Marone could not sink the eagle putt, but picked up another birdie to sit at 2-under-par through three holes. Both Ross and Geiman opened their rounds with three pars, and followed it up with another par at the fourth hole, while Marone bogeyed. The three flip-flopped the lead throughout the front nine, but Marone’s finished with a 37 and opened up a two-stroke lead on both of his partners entering the back nine.

In front of the group, things were not going as smoothly for most players. The wind became stronger and the likes of Berry, Peden, and Bunzel slowly faded from the lead. Rij Patel of Hunt Valley, Md., turned his game up a notch while most of the field struggled. Patel carded a first round 80, but responded with a final-round 74, including birdies at No. 11 and No. 17 as part of a 1-under-par 35 on the back nine to shoot a 74. Already in the clubhouse with a final total of 154, Patel waited as Marone, Geiman, and Ross finished their rounds.

The lead continued to switch hands, and after a birdie for Ross, a par for Geiman, and a double-bogey for Marone at the 15th, the three were tied at 8-over-par for the tournament. Marone jumped back ahead with a par on the long par-5 16th, picking up a stroke on Geiman and two strokes on Ross. Marone had another par on hole No. 17, but Ross birdied to get within one, while Geiman fell two strokes back with a bogey.

The tournament came down to the 18th hole, an uphill par-5 back to the clubhouse. None of the three found the fairway with their drives, but each hit great shots out of the rough and were inside 100 yards for their approach shots. Geiman’s shot landed on the front of the green, and he had a long uphill putt to a back hole location. Ross also landed on the front, with Marone’s shot to the middle of the green giving him the best look at birdie. After both Geiman and Ross were unable to connect from long distance, Marone was left with a two-putt from 20 feet to seal the victory. He came close to finishing in fashion, as his birdie putt burned the left edge of the cup, before tapping in for par and the victory with a final score of 76-76-152.

Marone noted the turning point of his victory was when, “I got up-and-down at Nos. 16 and 17 which was big in moment and in the scale of things.”

Ross finished second with scores of 76-77-153, and Geiman and Patel tied for third place with tournament totals of 154. Patel’s 74 won him the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award.

For the fifth time this season, Joe Parrini of York, Pa., won the Boys 14 & Under Division.

parrini hlParrini’s card was filled with birdies during the first round, as he scored five of them, including four on the front nine. He finished his first round with a score of 79.

Jack Halleron of Timonium, Md., did not have nearly as many birdies as Parrini, but he avoided any big mistakes en route to taking the lead after the first round. Halleron carded 11 pars to go along with his lone birdie at No. 12 to shoot a 77. Teddy Trosset of Cooperstown, N.Y., fired an 82, highlighted by a birdie at hole No. 5, one of the toughest holes on the course, to join the final group with Halleron and Parrini in the final round.

Things did not go as smoothly for the group, as the three struggled on their opening nines in the final round. With the greens becoming firm from the cold weather, it was difficult to stick any shots close to the hole. Trosset shot the low nine-hole score of the three, finishing with a 41. Halleron’s two-stroke lead remained intact, as both he and Parrini shot 43s.

Trosset fell back from the group after a rough start to his final nine. Halleron also had his first bad hole of the week, leaving Parrini alone on top. To Halleron’s credit, he responded on the par-4, second hole with a birdie at the third hole. Parrini also made birdie at the third hole, to maintain his one-stroke advantage.

The tires came off the tracks for Halleron after that, and Parrini played it safe the rest of the way in, shooting a front-nine 39 to finish with a score of 82 for the day. At a total of 161 for the tournament. Parrini earned the four-stroke victory over Trosset, whose final totals were 82-83-165, with Leo Hernandez of Stewartsville, N.J., finishing third with scores of 82-84-166.

“You just had to hit the low punch shots and take the wind out of play,” Parrini pointed out as the biggest key to his victory.

In the Girls Division, Cara Basso of Downingtown, Pa., rode a sizzling start during the first round on her way to victory.

bassoStarting on the back nine, Basso quickly got into red numbers with a birdie on the par-3, 11th. She added another birdie at No. 13, navigating the conditions to perfection. A couple setbacks at holes Nos. 15-16 brought her back to even-par, but Basso responded with a birdie on No. 18 to finish her opening nine at 1-under-par.

The winds picked up as the day went on, and Basso was unable to match her brilliant start after making the turn. She did, however, avoid making any big mistakes after a double-bogey on No. 1. Basso, like many in the field, could not solve the tough fifth and sixth holes, bogeying each on her way to a front-nine 40. Her final score of 40-34-74 was the low round of any division and put her seven shots ahead of Katie Walsh of Baldwinsville, N.Y., and Haley Bookholdt of Columbus, N.J., entering the final round.

Basso started strong again during the final round with four pars. Her only blemishes on her opening nine were a bogey at No. 14 and a double-bogey at No. 17, on her way to a 39. Basso ran into some troubles on the front side with double-bogeys on Nos. 4, 5, and 7.

While Basso was struggling, a few groups ahead of her, Liza Freed of Alexandria, Va., was making a run. Freed had been 10 shots back of Basso entering the final round and was 11 back at the turn, but she only bogeyed twice on her final nine of the weekend, finishing with scores of 84-78-162 for the tournament.

Basso was able to hold on, though, as she carded a par at the eighth hole and a bogey at the ninth hole to earn the three-stroke victory. Basso’s final scores were 74-85-159. Bookholdt and Carley Hopton of Madison, N.J., tied for third with a final total of 164.

Freed’s 78 was good enough to win her the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award.

Final Results from the Architects Cup

 

Panagos takes home the Architects Cup
Menon wins back-to-back IJGT Titles

LOPATCONG, N.J. – The International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) returned to beautiful Architects Golf Club in Lopatcong, N.J., April 27-28 for the 2013 IJGT Architects Cup. 111 junior golfers ages 9-19 representing seven states and two countries were treated with amazing weather and scenic views during this two day, 36-hole competition.

Jack PanagosIn the Boys 15-19 Division, Jack Panagos of Hillsborough, N.J., took home the Architects Cup first-place trophy after two great rounds of golf this weekend. Panagos played a very impressive first round with five birdies carding a 1-under-par 70, but Architects Golf Club employee, Eamon Marone of Belvidere, N.J., had the lead heading into Sunday after carding a 2-under-par 69 on Saturday. Marone earned KENTWOOL Lo-Pro honors on his home course with his spectacular first-round play.

Panagos started his final round off with a bang with four consecutive birdies on the front nine, and lead the Boys 15-19 Division by two stokes at the turn. Second-place finisher Roland Massimino of Lumberville, Pa., birdied his first two holes on the back nine, making it an exciting back nine. Panagos carried his momentum into the back nine by carding two birdies and five pars to earn himself his first IJGT Title with a 3-under-par 139 final score.

“It feels awesome to win the title,” said Panagos. “I knew it would be tough to win this weekend with all of the great competition, and I feel really happy.”

Massimino finished in second right behind Panagos with a weekend 1-under-par 141. Rounding out the Boys 15-19 Division top three was Marone, Armando Olivieri of Greenwich, Conn., and Jake van Arkell of Haverford, Pa., all carding a weekend even-par 142.

Nate MenonComing off a first-place finish in the Boys 14 Under Division at the Western Pa. Major at Nemacolin, Nate Menon of Wyomissing, Pa., wanted to carry last weekend’s success into the Architects Cup. Menon started his weekend with a first-round 1-over-par 72, and found himself in a three-way tie with Sam Goldenring of Florham Park, N.J., and John Felitto of Mountainside, N.J. The Boys 14 Under Division was filled with low scores heading into Sunday, and Menon needed a spectacular final round to repeat last weekend’s success.

Menon started his second round off with a bang making birdies on his first two holes, giving him an early two-stroke lead. With two more birdies on the front nine, Menon had the championship title in his sights after the turn. After an impressive eagle on No. 1 (his 10th hole), Menon never looked back and carded a spectacular 6-under-par 65 in his final round, earning him Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award honors. With his great play over the weekend, Menon carded a weekend 5-under-par 137 tournament total.

“It feels really good to win this week,” said Menon. “I knew I had to shoot under-par in the second round to win this weekend, and thankfully I was able to do that.”

Goldenring finished in second place right behind Menon with a weekend 2-over-par 144. Rounding out the top three in the Boys 14 Under Division was Drew Tomback of New York City, N.Y., carding a final score of 147.

Brynn WalkerIn the Girls Division, Brynn Walker of St. Davids, Pa., carried a three stroke lead heading into Sunday’s final round. Her first-round 3-over-par 74 consisted of three birdies and nine pars, which earned her KENTWOOL Lo-Pro honors. With a talented field in the Girls Division, Walker had to bring her best game into Sunday’s final round.

Walker’s first round lead dwindled after a shaky front nine, giving Camilla Vik of Greenwich, Conn., a chance at a comeback. Vik’s front-nine score of 1-under-par 34 put the pressure back on Walker, who responded with birdies on No. 10 and No. 14. Walker was now in the driver’s seat and had the IJGT Title in her sights. Her first round lead was just too much for Vik, and Walker took home her first IJGT Title by carding a weekend 9-over-par 151.

“I’ve been chasing an IJGT Title for awhile,” said Walker. “After playing in three events this year it feels very good to win one.”

Finishing right behind Walker was Vik with a weekend 12-over-par 154. Vik’s final-round score of 3-over-par 74 earned her the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award. Rounding out the top three in the Girls Division was Cara Basso of Downington, Pa., carding a tournament total 13-over-par 155.

The IJGT Northeast Tour will travel to Ravenwood Golf Club in Victor, N.Y., to host the AB Golf Desgins Junior May 4-5. To sign up for this Event, or others, visit IJGT.com or call (843) 785-2444.
