DC Shootout at National Golf Club – Final Results

 Powderly fires back-to-back 74’s to earn IJGT title

Cooper claims crown in Boys 14 & Under Division

FORT WASHINGTON, Md. – The International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) continued the 2015 Fall Season with the DC Shootout at National Golf Club. Junior golfers from the Northeast competed in the 36-hole tournament over Columbus Day Weekend for IJGT Merit Points and National Rankings.

Liam Powderly of Cockeysville, Md., earned the victory in the Boys 15-19 Division after putting together back-to-back scores of 2-over, 74. This was Powderly’s second victory at National Golf Club, as he also won the 2014 DC Shootout at National Golf Club in the Boys 14 & Under Division.

Using last year’s success as a confidence boost, Powderly was able to get off to a strong start in the windy conditions in the opening round. He carded an even-par, 36 on the opening nine and never looked back. Powderly made three birdies on the day and posted a three-stroke lead going into the final round.

Powderly knew the final round would not come easy as his fellow competitors would make a charge. Lou Baker of Timonium, Md., did just that getting to within one stroke after 11 holes. The turning point of the tournament for Powderly came on the 12th hole at National Golf Club, where he was able to make birdie after firing a great approach shot into the green. From there, Powderly played solid down the stretch to secure his second IJGT victory.

“Winning feels very good. I played very well this weekend so all the practice is paying off and it feels great,” commented Powderly.

Powderly’s final-round score of 2-over, 74 earned him the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award, which goes to the player who records the lowest final-round score in every IJGT tournament.

Baker finished the tournament in second place with a total score of 152. Thomas Lipowicz of Alexandria, Va., earned third place after carding a tournament total of 159.

In the Boys 14 & Under Division, Matt Cooper of Dobbs Ferry, N.Y., came out victorious after carding a tournament total of 161. Cooper got off to a hot start in the first round playing his first 11 holes in 1-under-par including three birdies. After a few setbacks, Cooper was able to post a score of 80 to build a six-stroke lead over his competition.

In the final round, Cooper focused on his own game and knew that if he played well there was no one that would be able to catch him. Cooper made three more birdies in the final round, including one to open his round. He finished the day with a score of 81, which gave him his first IJGT victory.

“My mindset coming in to today was to come in and hit greens, play my game, and make pars. I wanted to make my competitor make birdie to win so I tried to hit greens and make par,” said Cooper.

Will Tormey of Bronxville, N.Y., finished in second place with a tournament total of 164, including a 78 in the final round.

Lino Galdin of Nevny, France, won the Boys 15-19 Division after a phenomenal final round of 6-under, 65 on the par-71 Crescent Pointe Golf Club. During the first round, Galdin got off to a rough start making double bogey on his opening hole, but he was able to quickly bounce back making four more birdies on his opening nine.

The last day was a birdie fest for Galdin. On the front nine, he made birdie on three of his first five holes. Then he caught fire on the back nine closing the tournament with five birdies. In total, Galdin finished the event with a tournament score of 4-under, 138 to earn his first IJGT victory.

“I wanted to play as well as possible, and get as many birdies as I could. I had eight birdies so I’m very happy,” said Galdin.

Galdin’s score of 6-under, 65 also earned him the Clazic Low Final Round Award which goes to the boy and girl who shoot the lowest score in the final round of every IJGT event.

It took an incredible performance from Galdin to hold off Colton Tanner of Westport, Conn. Tanner finished the tournament with a tournament total of 2-under, 140 including a final-round score of 2-under, 69. Rounding out the top three was Tristan Galant of Cape Town, South Africa who finished with a tournament total of 1-under, 141 including a 3-under, 68 in the final round.

In the Girls Division, Anita Uwadia of Hilton Head Island, S.C., earned the victory in dominant fashion. Uwadia came to play in the first round carding a 4-under, 67 to build a six-stroke lead. Her round was highlighted by two eagles and one birdie.

The tournament was Uwadia’s to lose in the final round, but she did not let her foot off the accelerator. Although she did not have her “A” game, Uwadia still managed to shoot a 1-over, 72 to secure an eight-stroke victory. During the final round, Uwadia had a stretch of 13 straight pars. This was the University of South Carolina commit’s first IJGT victory.

“It feels amazing to win. That’s what keeps me going. The more I win, the more I want to keep playing,” commented Uwadia.

Finishing in second place in the Girls Division was Linda Trockel of Berlin, Germany, with a tournament total of 147. Melany Chong of Mississauga, Canada, finished in third place with a total score of 148. Chong fired a 1-under, 70 in the final round to earn the Clazic Low Final Round Award in the Girls Division.

Chase Phillips of Hilton Head Island, S.C., earned the title in Boys 14 & Under Division after putting together two solid rounds for a tournament total of 151. Phillips started the tournament with a 76 and had two birdies in his round to build a two-stroke lead heading into the final round.

Phillips came mentally prepared for the final round and started off well shooting a 38 on his opening nine holes. His fellow competitors were within striking distance until Phillips slammed the door shut with a birdie on his 14th hole of the day. He finished the day with a 4-over, 75 giving him his second IJGT title in the Boys 14 & Under Division.

“I knew I had the lead after hole after my 14th hole when I had a birdie…I was very excited but stayed focused,” said Phillips.

Bridgestone Golf Tournament of Champions – Final Results (May 25, 2015)

Galant birdies second playoff hole to win Boys 14 & Under Division

Montenegro comes from behind to earn Boys 15-19 Division Title 

The International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) traveled to Orlando, Fla., to host the Bridgestone Golf Tournament of Champions over Memorial Day Weekend, May 23-25, 2015. Juniors competed in warm and sunny conditions for IJGT Merit Points, national rankings, AJGA stars and exemptions into the North American Junior Amateur, Players Amateur, Bobby Chapman Junior Invitational, International Junior Masters, South Carolina Junior Golf Association Junior Azalea and South Atlantic Women’s Amateur Championship during the three-day, 54-hole event.

The Boys 15-19 Division played the East/North Course in rounds one and three and the New Course in round two while the Boys 14 & Under and Girls Divisions played the New Course in rounds one and three and the East/North Course in round two.

Tristan GalantTristan Galant of Cape Town, South Africa, shot a division-low 2-under 70 in the final round to force a playoff in the Boys 14 & Under Division. Galant and Robin Williams of Leeds, United Kingdom, both finished with 219 three-day totals. The duo played the par-4 first hole on the New Course as their first playoff hole. Both Galant and Williams hit the fairway off the tee and hit their approach shots on the green before two-putting to make par and force a second playoff hole. The pair moved on to the par-5 second hole on the New Course. Both players found the green in three giving themselves a chance for birdie, but it was Galant who made his birdie putt to win the playoff and the Boys 14 & Under Division.

“I was feeling like I was the man,” Galant said of his playoff experience. “I was coming back. I made an eight on a hole on the back nine and I told myself ‘I will succeed today,’ and I finished the job.”

Galant followed his eight on the par-4 fourth hole on the New Course with birdies on holes No. 5 through 7. “I knew that was the only way I would come back to win,” he said of the three consecutive birdies, the highlight of the tournament for him.

Galant had 13 birdies during the tournament, enough to earn him the EyeLine Golf Golden Putter Award, the award presented to the juniors to card the most birdies in each division.

Robin Williams finished second in the Boys 14 & Under Division. Williams shot an even-par 72 in round three, which included four birdies. Genki Otani of Kyoto, Japan, finished third with a 226 tournament total.

Marco MontenegroMarcos Montenegro of Buenos Aires, Argentina, shot a 3-under 69 in the third round to finish with an even-par 216 tournament total, good for first place in the Boys 15-19 Division. Montenegro made par or better on holes No. 1 through 15 in the third round and had just one bogey during the round. He carded 16 birdies to earn the EyeLine Golf Golden Putter Award in the Boys 15-19 Division.

When asked about his win, Montenegro said, “I feel very happy because I started so-so the first round, but I thought I could play better the next two days and I’m very happy to win the tournament.”

Montenegro’s third-round 3-under 69 landed him in a three-way tie for the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award, the award presented to the male and female junior to card the lowest score in the final round of an event. He shared the award with Parker Gillam of Cary, N.C., and Shiso Go of Kanagawa, Japan. Gilliam carded a double-eagle on the East Course’s par-5 ninth hole.

Although he led after the first and second rounds, Ryoto Furuya of Alpharetta, Ga., finished a stroke behind Montenegro with a 217 three-day total. Carlos Marrero of Valencia, Venezuela, rounded out the Boys 15-19 Divison with a 218 tournament total, just two strokes off the lead.

Karen MiyamotoKaren Miyamoto of Howey-in-the-Hills, Fla., the Girls Division round one leader, fired a 1-over 73 in the third round to regain control of the Girls Divison. She finished with a 228 tournament total and earned both the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award and the EyeLine Golf Golden Putter Award.

Miyamoto’s favorite hole was the New Course’s par-5 17th. “This hole was hard, but today I birdied it,” she said after the tournament.

Sera Tadokoro of Osaka, Japan, who lead the Girls Division after the second round, finished second with a 233 three-day total. Holly McCann of Raleigh, N.C., finished third with a 239 tournament total.

Orlando Open final feat image

Stokes finishes with an 8-under 136 to win Boys 15-19 Division

Yamamoto dominates Girls Division

 The International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) Southeast Tour traveled to Lake Buena Vista, Fla., to host the BGGA Orlando Open on May 9-10, 2015. Juniors competed in warm and sunny conditions for IJGT Merit Points, national rankings and North American Junior Amateur exemptions during the two-day, 36-hole event.  

Jason StokesJason Stokes (left) of Channel Islands, Jersey, made par or better on every hole in the first round to record a 5-under 67 and give himself a two-stroke lead heading into the final round. He finished under par again in the second round, carding a 3-under 69 to finish with an 8-under 136 tournament total and the Boys 15-19 Division title.

“It feels good,” Stokes said after his victory. “It’s my last tournament in America, so it’s good to leave with a win.”

Stokes carded nine birdies during the weekend to earn the EyeLine Golf Golden Putter Award, the award presented to the juniors to card the most birdies in each division. Two of his birdies came on the par-4 third hole. Stokes found particular success on the front nine in general, carding 3-under 33s on the front in both rounds.

Tsukasa Kimishima of Howey-in-the-Hills, Fla., finished second with a 5-under 139 tournament total. He made par or better on every hole on the back nine in round one. Tiger Lee, also of Howey-in-the-Hills, Fla., rounded out the Boys 15-19 Division, finishing third with a 3-under 141 tournament total. Lee finished the tournament strong making par or better on holes No. 1 through 9—his back nine because he began on hole No. 10—in round two.

Fourth-place finisher Frederic Ruess of Hamburg, Germany, earned the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award, the award presented to the male and female juniors to card the lowest scores in the final round of an event, with a 4-under 68 in the second round.

Mami YamamotoMami Yamamoto (left) of Tokyo, Japan, built off her round one 2-under 70 to card a 5-under 67 in the second round. She finished with a 7-under 137 tournament total to win the Girls Division by five strokes.

“I only missed one green yesterday, so I could have played better if I made more putts,” Yamamoto said, recapping her victory. “My goal today was to make more putts and it worked.”

In addition to the Girls Division title, Yamamoto also walked away with the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award and the EyeLine Golf Golden Putter Award for her nine birdies.

Karen Miyamoto of Howey-in-the-Hills, Fla., finished second with a 2-under 142 tournament total. Kelly Whaley of Farmington, Conn., carded a 1-over 145 two-day total to finish third.

 

Tristan GalantTristan Galant (left) of Cape Town, South Africa, came from behind to win the Boys 14 & Under Division. Galant bounced back from a 5-over 77 in the first round to card an even-par 72 in round two.

“It feels great,” Galant said when asked about his victory. “It takes hard work to become a champion like this…I’m very proud of myself and I’d like to thank everyone who supported me.”

Galant carded eight birdies during the tournament to earn the EyeLine Golf Golden Putter Award for his division.

Marc Sabria of Barcelona, Spain, recorded a 152 tournament total to finish second. Lake Worth, Fla., native Tyler Stachkunas finished third with a 161 two-day total.

He used three birdies to card a 2-under 33 on the front nine in the second round.

“I am happy I played well this weekend,” Reichert said after his victory. “I was a little rusty this winter so it was nice to come out here and play well.”

There was a three-way tie for second in the Boys 15-19 Division: Matt Dreimiller, Sean Dain and Danny Gianniny all finished with 152 tournament totals. William Gladstone carded six birdies to win the EyeLine Golf Golden Putter Award.

IJGT Island Open at Palmetto Hall – Final Results (April 26, 2015)

McCloskey wins second consecutive Boys 14 & Under title

McCann wins first IJGT event  

The International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) remained local to host the IJGT Island Open at Palmetto Hall on April 25-26, 2015. Juniors competed for IJGT Merit Points, national rankings and North American Junior Amateur exemptions during the two-day, 36-hole event. Round one of the event was suspended due to lightning and torrential rain. The completion of round one and all of round two were both played on Sunday, in warm and sunny conditions.

Conor Byrne Palmetto HallConor Byrne (left) of Dublin, Ireland, shot a 2-under 70 in round one on his way to a 1-under 143 tournament total and his second IJGT title of the season in the Boys 15-19 Division. He carded back-to-back birdies three times during the tournament and finished with eight total birdies. “My favorite hole was hole No. 14,” he said after the tournament. “I had two birdies there this weekend, so that was nice.” He made par or better on 17 of 18 holes in round one. According to Byrne his driver was the best club in his bag this weekend. “I hit a lot of fairways, which put me in good position,” he said.

Taisuke Ono of Tokyo, Japan, finished second with a 147 tournament total. He carded nine birdies to win the EyeLine Golf Golden Putter Award, the award presented to the junior to card the most birdies in each division.

Rowan Foxley of Arlington, Wash., finished third with a 149 tournament total. He carded an even-par 72 in the second round to earn the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award, the award presented to the male and female juniors to card the lowest scores in the final round of an event.

Holly McCann Palmetto HallFor Girls Division winner Holly McCann (left) of Raleigh, N.C., the highlight of the tournament was her round one 1-under 71. “That’s my first tournament under par, so it’s really memorable,” she said after the event.

The 14-year-old McCann carded a 77 in round two to finish with a 148 tournament total and sole possession of first place. She carded three birdies in round one and two more in round two to finish with five total. She had a division-best 17-hole par-or-better streak, which began with a birdie on the par-5 tenth hole in round one and ended with the par-3 eighth in round two.

Ankita Kedlaya of Bangalore, India, carded a 150 tournament total to finish second in the Girls Division. She made par or better on every hole on the front nine in both rounds.

Gabriela Teran of Managua, Nicaragua, finished third with a 152 tournament total.

Fourth-place finisher Bunyaporn Zeng of Bangkok, Thailand, carded nine birdies during the tournament to win the EyeLine Golf Golden Putter Award for the Girls Division. Her second-round 2-over 74, which included two sets of consecutive birdies, also earned her the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award for the girls.

Aidan McCloskeyAidan McCloskey (left) of Northborough, Mass., carded a 163 tournament total to earn his second consecutive Boys 14 & Under Division title. He won the IJGT Oldfield Junior earlier this month. The secret to McCloskey’s success this weekend was his iron game. “The best club in my bag this weekend was my 8-iron,” he said after the final round. “I hit it pretty good; this whole tournament I always seemed to have it.”

Matthew Camel of Greenwich, Conn., and Keegan Vaugh of Myrtle Beach, S.C., tied for second with 166 tournament totals. The duo had identical scores of 81 in round one and 85 in round two. Vaugh carded three birdies to earn the EyeLine Golf Golden Putter Award for the Boys 14 & Under Division.

In a tie for second, Kyle Vance of Audubon, Pa., and Daniel Reiger of Collegeville, Md., both carded a two-day total of 3-over 145.

Sim shot a first round 69, and followed up her 2-under first round with a gritty second round 73. During her final round, the New Jersey native shot an even-par 35 on the front nine.

In second place in the Girls Division, Brynn Walker of St. Davids, Pa., shot a two-day total of 144. The University of North Carolina commit managed to secure a Clazic Belts Low Final Round award in the Girls Division and the Eyeline Golf Golden Putter award for the girls.
