IJGT Discovery Tour at Blue Heron Pines – Final Results

The International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) hosted its first Discovery Tour event of the season in the Northeast on October 12. The tournament was hosted by Blue Heron Pines Golf Club in Egg Harbor City, N.J. The nine-hole event featured players ages 8-11. Rainy and windy weather was present throughout the day.

Discovery Tour Blue Heron Pines 058In the Boys Division, Ryan D’Ariano of West Chester, Pa., came out victorious. D’Ariano fired a 40 on the front nine of Blue Heron Pines. He began his day with a par on the first hole, but dropped a stroke on the par-3 second hole. D’Ariano quickly recovered with his only birdie at the third hole. Perhaps the highlight of D’Ariano’s round came at the par-3 fourth hole, as he got up-and-down for par from beneath a tree. Jay Collela of Marcellus, N.Y., finished in second place with a 44. Colella took advantage of the two par-3s on the front side, playing them at 2-under-par. A tough three-hole stretch to end the round opened the door for D’Ariano to earn the victory. Clay Breidenstein of Hummelstown, Pa., finished third.

Discovery Tour Blue Heron Pines 060In the Girls Division, Elizabeth Beek of Blue Bell, Pa., won for the second time in her IJGT Discovery Tour career. Beek hit 7-of-7 fairways in regulation on her way to shooting a 46. She began her round with a bogey but made an up-and-down for par on the second hole to gain some momentum. On the par-4 seventh hole, Beek hit her approach shot within 10 feet of the cup and left herself a chance for birdie, but her putt skimmed the edge of the cup and did not fall. She recorded the second par of her round on the hole. The 8-year-old will be playing in the IJGT’s next Discovery Tour Event on Oct. 26, 2013 at Hershey Links in Hummelstown, Pa.
