Final results from the Major Championship at Kiawah Island Resort

Kim earns first Major Championship win

Valdes wins back-to-back at Kiawah

KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. – The International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) stopped at Kiawah Island Resort over the weekend to host the Major Championship. Round one was held on the Jack Nicklaus designed Turtle Point Golf Club. The final round was held on the famed Ocean Course, which has hosted events such as the 1991 Ryder Cup and 2012 PGA Championship. Round one had wind gusts ranging from 20 mph to 30 mph. The weather for the final round was ideal with winds around 10 mph and temperatures in the mid 50s. The field of competitors had a total of 99 golfers across three divisions and represented 16 different countries. At stake were double IJGT Merit Points, National Rankings, and AJGA Stars for the Boys 15-19 Division and the Girls Division. Furthermore, 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.

Kim TrophyIn the Boys 15-19 Division, Geuntae Kim of Daegu, South Korea, prevailed with a come-from-behind victory earning him his first Major Championship. Kim had two birdies in the first round, but also made two double-bogeys. Heading into the final round he was trailing the first-round leader, Yuan Li of Haikou City, China, by only one stroke. The final round was where Kim played some of his best golf and made his move. He started off shaky being 4-over-par after five holes, but he managed to battle back. He found his stride and made par on 10 consecutive holes. Kim topped off his par streak by adding a birdie on the par-5, hole No. 16. He finished the back nine with a score of even-par 36. He made par on 22 of 36 holes during the tournament. Kim has finished within the top ten in all eight of his events played with the IJGT, four of them being first-place finishes. Kim’s weekend numbers totaled to 79-76—155.

When asked about his mindset going into the final round trailing, Kim replied, “I was actually just trying to get par. I knew that over par was going to win.”

Second place ended in a tie between Luigi D’Amico of Forli, Italy, and Chang Ju Lee of Seoul, South Korea. D’Amico shot 82-75—157 and Lee posted a score of 80-77—157. D’Amico’s score of 75 in the final round earned him the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award, which goes to the player that shoots the lowest score during the final round.

Valdes TrophyThe Girls Division was won by Ana Paula Valdes of Morelia, Mexico, which totaled her third IJGT Championship this season. Valdes won the Major Championship at Kiawah in 2013 and came back this year to defend her title. After day one she found herself headed into the final round trailing by four strokes. Valdes remained calm and played within her game. She made par on 26 of 36 holes, including 14 pars during the final round. Both days Valdes picked up her game on the back nine. On day one, she shot a 1-over-par 37 on the back nine including one birdie. On day two, she shot a 3-over-par 39, but managed to string together seven consecutive pars. Valdes is ranked within the top ten for the Girls Division with the IJGT and has finished within the top five for every event she has played. Her final round score of 77 earned her the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award in the Girls Division. She posted scores of 77 at Turtle Point and 77 at the Ocean Course for a two day total of 154.

When asked how she was feeling headed into the final round trailing, Valdes said, “Every time I am back from the lead, it gives me more motivation to do well and keep fighting.”

Nikita Arjun of Bangalore, India, nabbed second place recording scores of 73-82–155. Third place went to Rei Nakatani of Tokyo, Japan, who posted scores of 79-78—157.

Vilips TrophyIn the Boys 14 & Under Division, Karl Vilips of Melbourne, Australia, took home his seventh IJGT Championship this season. Coming off a first place finish in the Carolina Classic at Colleton River Plantation, Vilips looked to keep his win streak alive. During round one at Turtle Point, he totaled 11 pars and one birdie to take the division lead firing a 5-over-par 77. Vilips had a three-stroke lead in the division after his first round and never looked back. On day two, he started out strong making par at seven holes in a row to finish the front nine with a 2-over-par score of 38. On the back nine, Vilips started to struggle a bit more due to the wind picking up as five out of the nine holes were right on the Atlantic Ocean on the Ocean Course. Despite the conditions, he managed to keep it together finishing the day with a score of 81, which stretched his division lead to seven strokes and won him the Major Championship. Vilips’s numbers for the weekend were 77-81—158.

When asked about his mindset going into the final round with the lead, Vilips responded, “I didn’t want to completely blow it, so I played smart on holes with water because driver into the wind could go anywhere. I wanted to hit the greens and in safe areas.”

Chandler McDowell of Springbrook, Canada, came in second place, shooting an 80-85—165 overall. Connor Creasy of Abingdon, Va., finished in third place posting an 87-80—167.

The IJGT’s next Event will be the Georgia Junior at Savannah Harbor on Feb. 22-23, 2014. The club at Savannah Harbor has played host to PGA Tour events like the Champions Tour’s Legends of Golf. To sign up for this Event, or others, visit IJGT.com or call (843) 785-2444.

Carolina Championship at Kiawah Island (Major) – Final Results

Valdes Victorious in First IJGT Major
Santibanez Wins First Title at Kiawah Island
KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. – Bone chilling temperatures did not stop the International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) from returning to Kiawah Island Golf Resort to host the first Major Championship of 2013. The Carolina Championship at Kiawah Island  took place Feb. 16-17 and featured 106 elite junior golfers ages 10-19 representing 20 states, Washington D.C., and 18 countries competing for national recognition and double IJGT Merit Points. Despite the sub-freezing temperatures and wind gusts up to 20 miles per hour, Saravit Kerdsinchai  of Nonthaburi, Thailand and Ana Paula Valdes  of Morelia, Mexico came away with victories in the Boys 15-19 and Girls Divisions, respectively. Alejandro Santibanez  of San Luis Potosi, Mexico took home his first IJGT victory in the Boys 14 & Under Division.
The first round of the Carolina Championship was held on the Turtle Point course. Cold temperatures, strong wind and light bursts of rain made the course a true challenge for all participants. The final round of this IJGT Major event was held at the toughest course in America – the home of the 1991 Ryder Cup and the 2012 PGA Championship – the Ocean Course. Freezing temperatures and oceanic winds paired with a course designed by golf’s most challenging course designer, Pete Dye, made for an exciting round.
0f136501ad26a7a9ac93d72521b581daIn the Boys 15-19 Division, Kerdsinchai’s consistency was the key to his overall success. Carding 6-over-par 78 at Turtle Point put him tied for fourth heading into the final round at the Ocean Course. Kerdsinchai started the final round with a double bogey on No. 10 but followed up with three pars in a row.
“I didn’t feel like I played my best,” Kerdsinchai said of his final round. “I just tried not to make any mistakes.”
Kerdsinchai finished the final round with another 6-over-par 78 to propel him to a tournament total of 12-over-par 156.
“It feels good to win,” he said. “I feel confident and I can move forward now.”
Finishing just behind Kerdsinchai was Will Miles  of Hilton Head Island, S.C., who carded 16-over-par 160. Finishing in third place was Patrick Albanesi  of Avon, Conn., with 17-over-par 161, and tied for fourth wereColeman Self  of Greenwood, S.C., and Bryson Nimmer  of Bluffton, S.C., carding 18-over-par 162.
The KENTWOOL  Lo-Pro Award was given to Nicholas Rodriguez  of East Northport, N.Y., Albanesi, andWilliam Sheedy  of Washington, D.C., who carded the low first-round score of 3-over-par 75. The Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award went to Kerdsinchai and Ryan McCarthy  of Rockville Center, N.Y., with 6-over-par 78.
c8f54416908cbfbf39d93139819aa4f1In the Girls Division, Valdes carded an impressive 1-over-par 73 at Turtle Point along with Phimnipha Wongwaiwate  of Chiang Mai, Thailand andAracelly Maria Jimenez Rios  of Merida, Mexico, to receive the KENTWOOL Lo-Pro Award and share the lead heading into the final round. Valdes carded pars on Nos. 1 and 2 but faulted with a double bogey on No. 3. A late-round birdie on the par-5 No. 16 after a handful of pars and a few bogeys on the back launched her to 5-over-par 77 for the round and 6-over-par 150 for the event.
“I’m actually really happy [about my round today] because the conditions were really tough,” Valdes said. “I hit the ball really well even with the strong wind.”
This is Valdes’s second win of the 2012-2013 season after her victory at the Florida Swing  at Falcon’s Fire Golf Club in Sept.
Finishing behind Valdes was Wongwaiwate with 11-over-par 155. In third place was Tokyo, Japan native and winner of the Clazic Belts Low Final Round, Moyu Sasaki  who carded 4-over-par 76 at the Ocean Course to finish 13-over-par 157.
08cacedfeebd15585e0c374806a27231For the Boys 14 & Under Division, Santibanez began the final round two shots behind the leader after carding a 5-over-par 77 at Turtle Point.
“I was really nervous for the first round,” Santibanez “I started hitting greens and fairways and I calmed down.”
Santibanez said that the transition from Turtle Point to the Ocean Course proved to be difficult and reflected in his score.
“I had to change my club selection,” Santibanez said, “I had to change the type of shot I hit because of the wind.”
In the second round, Santibanez carded eight pars for the round and birdies on Nos. 8 and 16. Santibanez had a tight final-round race to finish against Pittsford, N.Y., resident William Thomson , and both carded 7-over-par 79 in the final round. Ultimately, it was Santibanez’s first round that propelled him to his first IJGT victory with 12-over-par 156.
“I’m going to feel really confident [heading into future events], now that I have won,” he said.
Thomson finished second place for the event carding 13-over-par 157. Sheedy finished in third place for the Boys 14 & Under Division with 18-over-par 162.
The IJGT will host two events Feb. 23-24 – the Golden Gate Junior at Presidio Golf Course  in San Francisco and the Georgia Junior at Savannah Harbor  in Savannah, Ga.
