Pennsylvania Junior at Out Door Country Club – Final Results

Bennett fires 1-under, 71 to win title

Simpson collects first victory in Girls Division

YORK, Pa. – The International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) continued the 2015 Fall Season with the Pennsylvania Junior at Out Door Country Club. Junior golfers ages 10-19 years old representing four different states competed in the 36-hole tournament for IJGT Merit Points and National Rankings.

Ford Bennett of Owings Mills, Md., earned the Boys 15-19 Division title with a superb final round of competition. Heading into the final round only one stroke back of first-round leader, MJ Bricker of York, Pa., Bennett knew that victory was well within his reach if he played to his capabilities.

In the final round, both players got off to solid starts with Bricker making the turn in 1-over, 37 and Bennett in 2-over, 38. Bennett, who trailed by two strokes heading into the last nine holes, got hot very quickly making four birdies on the back nine, including three in a row from holes Nos. 12-14. Bennett wound up shooting a 1-under, par 71 in the final round and finished with a tournament total of 148 which gave him a five-stroke victory.

Bennett’s final-round score of 1-under, 71 was the lowest round of the tournament in any division, and also earned him the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award, which goes to the boy and girl who record the lowest final-round score at every IJGT tournament.

“I was one shot behind and I wanted to come out and shoot a low number. If I didn’t win it’s ok. I just wanted to have fun,” said Bennett.

Bricker finished in second place with a tournament total of 153. There was a tie for third place between Jack Halleron of Timonium, Md., and Jairus Gaines of Baltimore, Md., who recorded tournament scores of 155.

In the Girls Division, Charlotte Simpson of Towson, Md., was victorious after carding a tournament score of 164. Simpson built a large lead in the first round after she carded an 82 in cold and challenging conditions at Out Door Country Club. Simpson did not get off to a great start in the final round, but she rebounded quickly and saved her best for last carding a 39 on her back nine including a birdie on hole No. 14. Simpson ended the day with another 82 and the victory was her first of the 2015-2016 season equaling her total number of victories from the 2014-2015 season.

Kendel Abrams of New Freedom, Pa., earned second place after carding a tournament score of 170. Finishing in third place was Cailey Roman of York, Pa., with a total score of 218.

Abrams and Simpson both earned the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award in the Girls Division with their scores of 82 on the final day.

College Series at University of Maryland – Final Results (May 17, 2015)

Halleron captures fifth IJGT title

Ayanian earns first IJGT win 

The International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) Northeast Tour traveled to Maryland to host the College Series at University of Maryland on May 16-17, 2015. Juniors competed for IJGT Merit Points, national rankings and North American Junior Amateur exemptions during the two-day, 36-hole event.

McLean, Va., native Justin Ayanian built off his round one lead to win the Boys 15-19 Division title. He started the first round off strong making par on holes No. 1 through 8. The highlight of the tournament for him was carding an eagle on the par-5 13th hole on the way to recording a 1-under 35 on the back nine in round one. “I hit 5-iron from 206 yards, stuck it to six feet and made the putt,” he said of the eagle. Ayanian shot a 1-over 72 in round one and a 3-over 74 in round two good for a 146 tournament total and sole possession of first place.

“It’s my first win with the IJGT,” Ayanian said after the tournament. “It feels good. I’ve been in contention in a few tournaments, but I finally put it all together today.”

After finishing the first round two strokes off of the lead, Michael Jones of Potomac Md., almost made a comeback, but his attempt came just short as he finished the tournament one stroke behind Ayanain. After a 10-hole par-or-better streak in round one, Jones had an eight-hole par-or-better streak in round two that included three birdies. He was coming off a win in last weekend’s IJGA Junior Open at Hershey Country Club.

Karsen Rush of Chambersburg, Pa., placed third in the Boys 15-19 Division with a 149 two-day total. Rush birdied the par-5 13th hole in both rounds.

After carding a 1-under 70, the lowest score of the weekend, in round one, Jack Halleron of Timonium, Md., shot a 3-over 74 in round two, good for a 144 tournament total and first place in the Boys 14 & Under Division. Halleron carded a division-high nine birdies during the tournament to earn the EyeLine Golf Golden Putter Award. He carded back-to-back birdies twice in round one.

The win was Halleron’s fifth of the season. “It is very exciting [to win],” Halleron said after the tournament. “I’ve won a few tournaments this season, but it always feels good to win.”

Fellow Timonium, Md., native Lou Baker finished in second with a 150 tournament total. He birdied the par-5 ninth hole in both rounds. John Updike of Wayne, Pa., finished in third with a 151 two-day total.

Caroline DeLoach of Fairfax, Va., won the Girls Division with a 166 tournament total. “My short game was working very well this weekend,” DeLoach said after her victory. “I was able to get up-and-down a lot during the round. I have been working on my short game lately and it paid off this weekend.” Her second-round 80 earned her the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award, the award presented to the male and junior to card the lowest score in the final round of an event.

Johnni Parlett of Owings, Md., carded a 169 tournament total to finish second in the Girls Division. Skylar Sload of Ashburn, Va., finished third with a 172 two-day total.

The IJGT will conclude its spring season with the Bridgestone Golf Tournament of Champions at Grand Cypress Golf Club on May 24-26, 2015. To sign up for this event, or others, visit www.IJGT.com or call (843) 686-1500.

Lou Baker of Timonium, Md., and James Meyers of Wexford, Pa., both have two top-three finishes this season, but have yet to win an event.

In the Boys 15-19 Division, Michael Jones of Potomac, Md., is coming off a victory in last weekend’s IJGA Junior Open at Hershey Country Club and will look to extend his winning streak.
