“I stayed with my process this weekend, I focused on not getting ahead of myself. The three-day tournament was very tiring, I was feeling really dehydrated. I made sure I drank a lot of water and got to bed early. The three day tournament was great preparation for college golf. This summer I’m going to focus on my process. I will take it one shot at a time and keep playing tournaments, I just will stay driven,” Kozak said.

Boys 15- 19 Division has a one hole play-off. Kweon Claims Girls Division

International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) Presents

The Spring Architects Cup at Architects GC

Lopatcong, N.J.

Monday, April 18, 2016

Boys 15- 19 Division has one hole play-off.

Kweon claims Girls Division. 

Lopatcong, N.J.– The International Junior Golf Tour continued their series in Lopatcong, N.J. for the Spring Architects Cup. Finally feeling like spring, over a 100 players competed this weekend. Players competed for National Rankings and IJGT Merit Points. The top five players in each division earned preferred entry into any IJGT Major Championship and the Champions of each division earned an invitation to the 2016 IJGT Tournament of Champions.

The Boys 15-19 Division had an exciting round two, with two players fighting for the championship that resulted in a playoff. Matt Graeff and DJ Griffiths both shot a one under par to compete in the play off. Graeff, from Blue Bell, P.A., had a round one score of 70 and shot even par on round two. Griffiths, of Binghamton, N.Y., fired a 73 in round one and had a comeback in round two carding a 68. Graeff claimed the champion title after a one hole playoff, where he had a birdie. Right behind the leaders, there was a tie for third. Andrew Lombardo and James McHugh shot even par to tie.

“The course was scoreable and I didn’t want to get ahead of myself. The best shot I had during the tournament was my tee shot on 16. I hit a great tee shot and stuck my second shot from 170 yards. It was the best shot because I knew where I stood and it was a pressure moment. Being the champion feels great because you always envision yourself in a playoff and winning it,” said Graeff.

With eleven boys competing in the Boys 14 & Under Division, Maxwell Sorger took the first place title home. Sorger, of Montclair, N.J., shot a 9 over par, a total of 151. Coming in 3 strokes behind Sorger was Jude Cummings. Cummings, of Pittsford, N.Y., shot a total of 154. Stephen Lorenzo, of Lower Gwynedd, P.A., took the third place title with a total of 156.

“My mind set was simple; come in and put up a good number, and if I did that I would have a chance. My best shot was my second shot on 18, I hit it close from 170 yards and made the birdie putt. I credit my short-to-mid irons for my win today,” remarked Sorger.

The Girls Division also had the top three players at a close range. Shooting a three-over par was Jessie Kweon. Kweon, of Little Neck, N.Y., had five birdies and nothing higher than a bogey. One stroke behind the leader was Katie Lee. Lee, of Ringoes, N.J., fired a total of 146. There was a tie for third place between Caroline Hodge and Esther Park. Both girls shot six-over par, a total of 148.

International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) Presents Hilton Head Open at Palmetto Hall Golf Club Hilton Head Island, SC

Sunday, April 10, 2016

 

Hilton Head Island, S.C. – The International Junior Golf Tour continued their tour in Hilton Head Island, SC to the Palmetto Hall Golf Club. Brutal winds played a huge factor this weekend, along with the uncharacteristic cold temperatures. The Hilton Head Open had players competing for National Rankings and IJGT Merit Points. The top five players in each division earned preferred entry into any IJGT Major Championship and the Champions of each division earned an invitation to the 2016 IJGT Tournament of Champions.

 

 The Boys 15-19 Division started out with 42 competitors and ended with 30 players. Even though the course played long, with the help of the wind, HaoHua Zhang took first Place. Zhang, of Howey-in-the-Hills, F.L., shooting a total of 154. He finished with 6 birdies, and one stroke within second place. Philip Chen of Taiwan, Taipei, and Jacob Lampe of Zionsville, IN, both tied for second place. Chen and Lampe both shot a total of 155.

           “I was nine strokes behind after the 8th hole but I never gave up. I knew that I needed to make some birdies to make something happen. My best shot was on hole nine, I hit one really close with my 9 Iron and made a birdie, which ended up being a three shot swing and allowing me to get back in it.I really liked the course. It was very difficult but fair, the wind was a big factor,” remarked Zhang

Collier Curd of Bowling Green, KY, won the Boys 14 Division with a total of 166. This is Collier’s third win with the IJGT this Spring. Battling the wind, like all competitors, he kept a 15 stroke difference between him and second place. Reed Sweigart of Roswell, G.A., took second with a total of 181. Siyu Liao of Urmqi, China, came in third with a total of 191.

13000158_10156803257695026_3956045129168850118_n

             “I thought that I would play well coming into the weekend, especially coming off of a win at Royce Brook. The course was really tough and the wind made it even harder. My best shot was on hole 12 when I chipped in from a downhill lie next to the bunker. I really liked the course, hole 18 was my favorite tee shot. I hit a stinger there both days,” commented Collier.

 The Girls Division Champion carded a 152, and was awarded to Linda Trockel of Berlin, Germany. After being tied with Kayla Kozak from day one, Trockel pushed through the conditions to secure her first place title. Kozak of Bluffton, S.C., came in second shooting a 154. Third place in the Girls Division was claimed by Wint Phoo Aung. Aung of Yangon, Myanmar, shot a total of 156.

13000238_10156803266815026_6130409723819404326_n

              “Coming in to today, I was very confident that I could win. I was in a similar situation last weekend at Innisbrook with the AJGA. My ball striking was really good this weekend. I didn’t hit many bad shots and I really liked hole 16. I played it one under for the weekend,” said Trockel.

 

The IJGT also recognizes the Clazic Belts Low Final Award Winners.

Junior golfers ages 10-19 years old representing 10 different states and 14 countries competed in the 36-hole Major Championship for double IJGT Merit Points, National Rankings, and AJGA Performance Stars.

Harbour Town Golf Links, home of the PGA Tour’s RBC Heritage, is a challenging test of golf, and even a player of Go’s caliber was going to have to play well to maintain a lead. Go did not get off to the start he wanted in the final round, making a double-bogey on the opening hole. He rebounded quickly though, with birdies on his next two holes to get it back to even-par. From there, Go was able to hold off his fellow competitors by making 12 pars in his last 14 holes. He finished with a round of 2-over, 73 and a seven-stroke victory. This was Go’s first IJGT victory of the 2015-2016 Season. Go was the 2014-2015 IJGT Player of the Year in the Boys 15-19 Division.

“Even though I won this tournament last year, I was just trying to do my best,” said Go.

Finishing in a tie for second place were Colton Tanner of Westport, Conn., and Brock Erwin of Muldrow, Okla., who both recorded tournament totals of 150.

Mason Williams of Bridgeport, W.Va., fired a final-round score of 1-over, 72, which earned him the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award which goes to the boy and girl that record the lowest final round score in each IJGT tournament.

In the Girls Division, Kayla Kozak of Bluffton, S.C., recorded her second career IJGT victory with a tournament total of 147. Kozak won in wire-to-wire fashion recording an impressive five-stroke victory. In the first round, Kozak made four birdies en route to a 3-over, 74. This only gave her a one-stroke margin heading into the final round.

Kozak used a meticulous game plan during the final round to hold off her competition. At the turn, Kozak improved her lead to three strokes, but after hole No. 12, her lead was back to one stroke. The pivotal point of the tournament came at hole No. 13 where Kozak made birdie to extend her lead to three strokes. From there Kozak made five straight pars to finish up her round of 2-over, 73 and collect the Girls Division title.

Kozak’s final-round score of 2-over, 73 was the lowest score of the event in the Girls Division, and also earned her the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award.

“It is an honor to win, because the competition was great. This tournament has given me the momentum for 2016 and the confidence to know I can play well,” commented Kozak.

Haruka Shintani of Setagaya, Japan, finished in second place with a tournament total of 152. Yuki Nakayama of Kawasaki, Japan, ended the tournament in third place after recording a score of 157.

During the final round on the El Campeon Course at Mission Inn Resort, weather conditions became challenging with the wind picking up with gusts of over 20 mph. Galdin was able to get off to a steady start and turn in 1-over, par 36 to maintain a one-stroke lead heading into the back nine. After a double-bogey on hole No. 11, Galdin temporarily gave up the lead, but bounced back with birdies on holes Nos. 13 and 17 to finish one stroke ahead of the field and claim the title.

She put on a clinic to close out the tournament making three birdies and six pars to finish with a 3-under, 34 on the back nine. This outstanding performance vaulted her into first place and gave Kuchakalla the Girls Division title.

“It feels very good to play my first event and play well enough to win. The first day the conditions were tough, but today I adapted well to the course,” said Kuchakalla.

Gonzalez finished in second place with a tournament score of 154. Tracy Lee of Seoul, South Korea, ended the event in third place with a tournament total of 155.

Shoichiro Sakamoto of Japan, was crowned the Laurel Springs School Major Champion in the Boys 14 & Under Division after finishing with a tournament total of 171. This was the first IJGT title for Sakamoto, who had previously finished runner-up in the 2015 Georgia Open at Savannah Quarters.
