The IJGT traveled to Lorton, Va., to host the first northeast event of the spring season, the IJGT Battle at Laurel Hill, on March 14-15, 2015. Juniors played through rain in round one and wind in round two of the two-day, 36-hole event. Following the tournament, the IJGT is proud to award Player of the Week honors to Katy, Texas native Ashni Dhruva and Anthony Cordaro of Pittsburgh, Pa.
Dhruva recorded the lowest score in the entire field in round one, an even-par 71. She carded a division-best five birdies on Saturday including back-to-back birdies on holes No. 4 and 5. Dhruva finished second in the Girls Division with a tournament total of 155. The IJGT Battle at Laurel Hill was Dhruva’s second IJGT event, she also finished second in the IJGT Junior at Palmetto Dunes earlier this month.
Cordaro knocked five strokes off his round one 84 to card a 79 in round two, good for a two-day total of 163 and a share of fourth place in the Boys 15-19 Division. He made par a division-best 20 times and his longest par-or-better streak came on holes No. 7 through 11 in round two.
Congratulations to both Ashni Dhruva and Anthony Cordaro on their IJGT Player of the Week honors!
