The IJGT held it’s third Discovery Tour event in the Northeast on May 17, 2014 at Greate Bay CC. The Discovery Tour allows junior golfers ages 8-12 to experience what it is like to play in a junior tournament. It provides an opportunity for juniors to play at some of golf’s top venues, learn the rules of tournament play, and meet others of the same age in a fun and competitive atmosphere.

The playing field was represented by Andrew Sample of New York, N.Y., and Clay Breidenstine of Hummelstown, Pa., at the Discovery Tour at Greate Bay CC. Accompanied by their fathers who caddied for them, each golfer had some amazing shots and played by rule No. 1 which is to have fun.

DSC06208Breidenstine finished in second place with a score of 78. Throughout his round Breidenstine had some great all around shots. From drives to putts, Breidenstine made a variety of good shots. This was his first IJGT event and we hope to see him in the future.

He started out strong by making bogey at his first two holes. Sample continued to play consistently to finish out his round and take his second championship at the Discovery Tour this season. We want to congratulate him on his two wins this season as we look forward to seeing him at upcoming events.

The Discovery Tour isn’t your normal golf tournament. As the IJGT is known for helping junior golfers with advance skills compete and dominate competitive junior golf, the Discovery Tour is a no-pressure alternative to normal IJGT events. It allows young golfers, with little or no experience, to get a feel for what it is like to play in a competitive tournament. This is a great opportunity for any child to play with their peers, sharpen their skills, and most importantly have fun.
