HERSHEY, Pa. – The International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) hosted the Hershey Classic on May 10-11, 2014 on the East Course at Hershey Country Club. Weather in round one included rain showers and a 30-minute delay, eventually forcing some golfers to be postponed until 8:00 a.m. the next morning. The weather for the final round made up for it however, with temperatures reaching into the high 70s. Out of the 112 golfers that came out to play in this event, James Nicholas of Scarsdale, N.Y. earned Photo of the Week.
Nicholas played extremely well during the Hershey Classic, which earned him his fourth IJGT Championship the season. After sinking a 20-foot putt to force a playoff, Nicholas pulled out the victory after four playoff holes. With this victory, Nicholas moved himself to the #1 ranking on tour. Congratulations on your victory and Photo of the Week honors. We look forward to seeing Nicholas at the Bridgestone Tournament of Champions to be played at Grand Cypress Resort on May 24-26, 2014.
