The IJGT hosted the second tournament of the Summer Series at Ridgemont Country Club of Greece, N.Y. The two-day tournament took place on July 1-2, 2014. Players and spectators enjoyed great weather and a pristine course operated by an accommodating and friendly staff.
Great competition made for a truly special tournament. Despite challenges presented by quick and undulating greens, juniors posted many low scores. Special congratulations are in order for Emily Connors and Scott Chambers for receiving the IJGT Player of the Week honors.
Playing in her fourth IJGT event, Connors posted her best career finish. After finishing round one standing in third, Connors returned looking to improve in round two. Connors shaved one stroke from her round-one score to stave of competition and take home third. Seven pars in round two were the highlight of her performance en route to her finish.
Coming off his victory with the IJGT at Ravenwood Country Club in May, Chambers posted his third top-10 finish of the season. His four-stroke improvement from round one illustrated the drive and determination he brought to round two. Chambers’ score of 79 in round two was highlighted by 10 pars and a birdie to help him into fourth place. The birdie on the par-4 No. 8 in round two becomes his 12th birdie in just three events with the IJGT.
Congratulations to both Connors and Chambers and we are eager to see them again in tournament play!
