Final results from the Carolina Classic at Colleton River Plantation Club

Cheng captures win at Carolina Classic

Vilips completes come-from-behind victory

BLUFFTON, S.C. – The International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) visited Colleton River Plantation Club this past weekend to host the Carolina Classic. Colleton River will be the site of the U.S. Junior Amateur Championship in 2015. Junior golfers that competed ranged in age from 12-19 years old and represented 16 different countries. National Rankings were at stake, as well as IJGT Merit Points. Additionally, the champion from each division received an invite to IJGT’s Bridgestone Tournament of Champions to be played at Grand Cypress Resort on May 24-26, 2014.

DSC_0820In the Boys 15-19 Division, Matt Cheng of Taipei, Taiwan, managed to come away with the victory. Going into the final round, Cheng was tied for first place with Will Miles of Hilton Head Island, S.C. Cheng was consistent on the final day and had a four–stroke lead at hole No. 16, but Miles was not going down without a fight. Miles cut Cheng’s lead to three strokes heading into the final hole. After Cheng took a triple-bogey on hole No. 18, they finished dead even, both shooting 74-75–149 to force a playoff. Tension was high for both golfers going into the playoff as they both failed to hit the fairway on their tee shots. Cheng’s second shot fell short of the green, setting him up with a short chip shot. Cheng’s chip shot was pure and nearly holed out, leaving him with a downhill three foot putt for par and the win. With confidence, Cheng stepped up to his putt and knocked it in to seal his victory.

When asked about his mindset going into the playoff, Cheng stated, “I was kind of a bit nervous, but I had to stay confident with myself [because] I know I can play well on that hole, which I did.”

After falling short on the playoff hole versus Cheng, Miles took second place, posting a 74-75—149 tournament total score. Third place ended in a tie between Keshav Sharma of New Delhi, India, and Brad Cook of Jackson, Wy., who posted scores of 78-79–157 and 80-77–157 respectively.

In the Boys 14 & Under Division, Karl Vilips of Melbourne,  Australia, battled back to take home the championship win. Going into the final round, Vilips trailed the leader by seven strokes. He responded and showcased his desire to win by shooting an even par 72, which earned him the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award. This award goes to the player who shoots the lowest score during the final round. It was also the low round of the tournament across all divisions. After no birdies in the first round, Vilips came back hungry. During the final round, he was determined to improve and finished with four birdies, posting a tournament score of 85-72-157.

When asked about his comeback and what he did differently on Sunday, Vilips replied, “I took more time with all of my shots…the first day I rushed a few of my shots which caused lots of errors.”

Takafumi Shimoji of Okinawa, Japan, came in second, shooting an 80-80—160 overall. Christian Clemence Tupamahu of Manado, Indonesia finished in third posting an 84-89—173.

 

DSC_0678The Girls Division was won by Kayla Kozak of Bluffton, S.C., earning her first IJGT championship. Kozak played very consistently throughout the weekend. She made a birdie on hole No. 9 in both round one and round two. In her final round, Kozak finished with two birdies on the day and nine pars. The windy conditions were no match for the type of golf she was playing. She continued to hit fairways and set herself up with great approach shots. Kozak shot an 80-77—157 to earn her victory.

When asked how she was feeling after winning her first IJGT event, she said, “It’s an amazing feeling, I feel honored. [The IJGT] is a great tour, the people are great and I made a lot of nice friends. I really appreciate the event.”

Second-place finisher Thamonpat Siriko of Bangkok, Thailand, recorded an 85-75—160 tournament total, which also earned her the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award for the Girls Division. Third place was won by Rei Nakatani of Tokyo, Japan who posted an 85-79—164.

Final results from the Island Challenge at the Country Club of Hilton Head

Russell tabs title at Country Club of Hilton Head

McDowell, Ohara capture first victories

 

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. – The International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) held its second Event of the Southeast this weekend. Hosted at the Country Club of Hilton Head, the Island Challenge had both National Rankings and IJGT Merit points up for grabs. Despite a weekend of trying conditions, junior golfers played with success. The participating golfers range in age from 13-19 were in pursuit of an invite to IJGT’s Bridgestone Tournament of Champions to be played at Grand Cypress Resort on May 24-26, 2014.

DSC_0419_edited-1In the Boys 15-19 Division, Nicholas Russell of Hilton Head Island, S.C., came in first in a tight race to the finish. Going into round two, Russell led by three strokes until Davis Kiger of Harrisburg, N.C., cut the lead to two on hole No. 14. Despite the narrow margin, Russell answered back with four consecutive pars to end the second round three strokes ahead. Russell’s strong start on the front nine was the key factor to maintaining the lead, adding cushion for two late double-bogeys.

When asked about his victory, Russell said, “I feel so special, I’ve been playing so many of these Events and it’s my first win in the older [Boys 15-19] Division.”

The winner of the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award went to both Russell and Kiger who both finished round two with a score of 78. The Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award is awarded to the player that shoots the lowest score during the final round.

Second place went to Kiger who finished with an 80-78 – 158 overall score. Rounding out the top three was Hao Yang Lin of Taichung, Taiwan, finishing with a score of 83-83 – 165 overall.

DSC_0502_edited-1In the Boys 14 & Under Division, Chandler McDowell of Springbrook, Canada, made a stand-out first impression as he took an authoritative lead during round one and continued to lead the entire tournament. Finishing 34 strokes ahead of his competition, McDowell made his first IJGT appearance successful with a first-place finish. Leading round one with a score of 76, a 21-stroke lead over Thomas Delaney of Kingwood, Texas, McDowell strengthened his lead with a round two score of 80.

In discussing what worked well for him, he stated, “I was hitting my driver really well, making a lot of putts and I made a lot of good iron shots.”

Delaney finished second, shooting a 97-93 – 190 overall score. Aaron Elmore of Rincon, Ga., came in third place posting a 101-99 – 200 overall score.

 

DSC_0537_edited-1The Girls Division also had a first-time winner finishing with a significant margin. Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award winner, Milleina Ohara of Meguro-Ku, Japan, led both rounds. Her second round featured three birdies in four holes on the front nine, which added to her lead. Runner up Jasmine Chee of Hong Kong, China, looked to rally in round one as she made par on 10 of 18 holes, but struggled to close the gap when her second round included five double-bogeys.

With the weather a factor in this weekend’s play, Ohara said, “…it was pretty cold and windy so my shots were sometimes going left and going right but I still did pretty well.”

Chee came in second shooting an 85-91 – 177 overall score while Maggie Ashmore of Kingston, Ga., rounded out the division in third with a score of 86-91 – 177 overall.

The IJGT Southeast tour will continue next weekend with the Carolina Classic at Colleton River Plantation in Bluffton, S.C. The Dye Course at Colleton River is the host of the 2015 U.S. Junior Amateur. To sign up for this Event, or others, visit IJGT.com or call (843) 785-2444.

IJGT Player of the Week – January 11-12

LUTZ, Fla. – The International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) conducted the Winter Shootout at TPC Tampa Bay in Lutz, Fla., on Jan. 11-12, 2014. This was the first tournament of the new year for the IJGT staff, and it kicked off the season with a bang.  The course staff was most helpful when the IJGT staff arrived at the venue, and the event could not have occurred at a better location.   Everyone was very pleased with the excellent shape of the course for the January weather at TPC Tampa Bay.  This week’s Player of the Week honors went to Keshav Sharma of New Delhi, India, and Jasmine Chee of Hong Kong, China.

The weather played a prominent role in the tournament as high winds of 15+mph ruled the first 18 holes. On the final round of the event, the rain from the night before left some standing water in the low areas of the course.

Sharma (left) carded a score of 79 in the first round, good enough for a tie with Parker Gillam of Cary, N.C., after battling tough conditions with winds up to 25 mph. Sharma started his round off nicely with three consecutive pars, and closed in equally impressive fashion, scoring par on five of his last six holes. Sharma’s second round was highlighted by a birdie on the par-3 No. 6, one of only four birdies on the hole throughout the weekend. Despite having to fight off a bee sting late in the second round, Sharma recorded a second round score of 83 and tournament total of 162 left him in a tie with Tennoshin Ogawa of Ichinomiya-shi, Japan. Ogawa bested Sharma in the playoff; however, it is his third top-10 finish and the best of his IJGT career.

In the Girls Division, Chee (left), who is battling a knee injury, played through the pain Friday and Saturday. She came into the first day ready to play through any conditions and stayed very consistent throughout her round. Like many golfers, Chee has superstitions, including always using a blue Sharpie to mark her golf ball before each round.  She was up to the challenge in the final round, even with the wet conditions.  Her round got off to a slow start, but she stayed tough and completed all 36 holes for the tournament. She avoided any large numbers on her card, finishing strong with eight pars on the day.  We will see her again in her next upcoming tournament at the Carolina Classic at Colleton River Plantation on January 25-26th.  Colleton River Plantation is the site of the 2015 US Junior Amateur.

Season’s first Major to be held at Crystal Springs’ Great Gorge

Crystal Springs’ Great Gorge Country Club in McAfee, NJ will play host to the first Major of the International Junior Golf Tour’s (IJGT) 2013-14 season on September 7-8. The two-day, 36-hole event is the first of six Major events during the course of the season and will showcase some of the top junior golfers from around the world. IJGT Merit points are doubled for this event.

Nestled in the rolling hills of northern New Jersey, Great Gorge is one of seven courses located at Crystal Springs Resort, creating a golf heaven for those who love the sport. Opened in 1970, the course was designed by George Fazio. Crystal Springs is only an hour drive outside of New York City.

The par-3 third on Great Gorge’s Railside course features artifacts from the railroad era in a formation reminiscent of Stonehenge.

Great Gorge hosts three distinct nine-hole courses. The Quarryside Course plays through rock outcroppings and diverse water hazards, the Lakeside Course features sparkling lakes and elevation changes, while the Railside course is the most scenic and forgiving of the three.

Finding trouble is not difficult on Great Gorge, as the three courses combine to have 72 bunkers and 15 water hazards. The Rail course plays the longest, at 3,405 yards from the back, with Lake coming in at 3,402 and Quarry at 3,308.

Allyson Wentworth will look to build off a strong 2012-13 season in which she recorded five top-10’s in six IJGT events. Sam Goldenring finished in the top-10 in all four events he competed in and will look to carry that momentum while making the jump to the Boys 15-19 division.

Crystal Springs last hosted an IJGT event in September of 2011. New Jersey’s Max Greyserman earned a two-shot victory in the Boys 15-19 division, Andrew Nappi of Pennsylvania won the Boys U-14 Division at +12 for the two days, and Camilla Vik of Greenwich, CT took home the title in the Girls Division.

The Georgia Junior at Savannah Harbor – Final Results

Miles captures first victory at Savannah Harbor

Schneider Takes Home Georgia Junior Title

SAVANNAH, GA. – The International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) hosted the Georgia Junior Feb. 23-24 at The Club at Savannah Harbor. The IJGT Georgia Junior at Savannah Harbor featured 78 elite junior golfers from all over the world. Friday’s heavy rain and frigid temperatures made the course extra challenging for all of the competitors over the weekend. Will Miles  of Hilton Head Island, S.C. and Ceha Lee  of Bundang-Gu, South Korea battled the rain to prevail in the Boys 15-19 and Girls Divisions respectively, while Jan Schneiderof Erlangen, Germany took home his second title of the year by outlasting Will Thomson  of Pittsford, N.Y. by a single stroke in the Boys 14 & Under Division.

d13a9187fc23d7fb103f6830c96f76a9The Boys 15-19 Division  was the most competitive division of the tournament with the top 3 spots being separated by the smallest of margins, as Austin McCulloch  of Alexandria, Minn. and Ewen Ferguson  of Hilton Head Island, S.C. both posted an even-par 144 on the weekend, which put them tied for second place. The biggest surprise of all was Miles, who shocked the field after being down four strokes when the final round began. Miles, who was four strokes behind first round leader Chris Magi of Montreal, Canada, overcame all odds and took home his first championship victory in dramatic fashion.

“I knew it was going to take under par to win, so I played aggressive, but smart aggressive,” said Miles. “I didn’t go at all the flags, but I picked the right spots to go for it.”

Miles, who has never won a title, really wanted to bring home a first place finish at the Georgia Junior. “After finishing second in the past two tournaments it feels so good to finally bring home a first place finish,” said Miles.

With his 2-under-par 70 on Saturday, Magi earned himself the Lo-ProKENTWOOL Socks  Award which goes to the player who has the lowest first round score at every IJGT tournament.

 

In addition to his second place finish, McCulloch’s final round score of 4-under-par 68 was the best score on Sunday earning him the Clazic Belts  Low Final Round Award.

b9ffecf994aaf5a1131e3ea7f4d34b79In the Boys 14 & Under Division , Schneider took home his second division victory in only his third event on U.S. soil. The rain never affected Schneider’s play after posting an even-par 72 on Saturday in the soaking wet conditions. His impressive opening round was good enough to give him the lead heading into Sunday.

“It’s always good to have the lead after the first round, but I knew the second round was going to be tough,” said Schneider.

Schneider’s second round was one of the most exciting to watch with second place finisher Thomson nipping at his heels all day long. Thomson was able to equal Schneider’s Sunday total, but his one shot deficit from Saturday turned out to be the final margin, leaving him with his second straight runner-up finish by one stroke in as many weeks. James Wohler  of Savannah, Ga. rounded out the top three in the division with a 151 total on the weekend.

“It was a hard second round for me with Will [Thomson] being paired up with me,” said Schneider. “Will is such a good player, so I knew the second round was going to be tough.”

 

 

 

e0f037b01a2c0279371dc51cab8d5dcfIn the Girls Division , Lee fought off stiff competition to take home her first IJGT title of the season by posting a 1-over-par 145 total on the weekend. Lee, who was being pursued by second place finisher Cake Phuchanbanchob  of Chiang Mai, Thailand, and third place finisherMaggie Ashmore  of Kingston, Ga., began the weekend with a three stroke lead, and never looked back, as she took home the division title by two strokes.

“I just tried to stay calm going into Sunday,” said Lee. “I acted like I wasn’t in the lead, because knowing I was leading would make me feel more nervous.”

Lee’s 1-under-par 71 on Saturday, earned her the Lo-Pro KENTWOOL Socks Award which goes to the player who has the lowest first round score at every IJGT tournament.

For the Girls Division, the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award went to Phuchanbanchob and Ayaka Nakayama  of Kanagawa, Japan who both shot even-par 72 on Sunday at Savannah Harbor.

The next IJGT event will be Family Weekend at Port Royal  Mar. 2-3 on Hilton Head Island, S.C. The IJGT’s Family Weekend is always a hit with the parents, and this year will be no different as families will be traveling in from all over the globe to participate.

“My drives were really good off the tee,” Spencer-White said, “I hit almost all of the fairways.”
