Going into round two, Go was tied for first place with Trey Wren of Suffolk, Va., with a recorded score of even-par. Go’s strong start on the front nine was the key factor to maintaining the lead, adding cushion for one late double-bogey. He recorded par or better on his first 11 holes en route to a final-round score of 3-under-par 69 to capture the title.

Second place went to Xue Wen Luo of Haikou, China, who finished with a 76-69 – 145 overall score. Rounding out the top three was Print Yusabai of Pattaya, Thailand, finishing with a score of 73-73 – 146 overall.

The winner of the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award, went to Go, Luo, and Ryan Pongrac of Freehold, N.J., who all finished round two with a low score of 3-under-par 69. The Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award is awarded to the player(s) who shoot the lowest score during the final round.

Kelly WhaleyThe Girls Division would be decided by a playoff round between Kelly Whaley of Farmington, Conn., and Cake Phuchanbanchob of Chiang Mai, Thailand. Phuchanbanchob, who finished round one five back from front-runner Whaley with a score of 77, started the second round of the tournament strong. She recorded par or better on her first 15 holes playing them in 6-under-par. Whaley, who led coming out of round one, maintained the surge from Phuchanbanchob, and finished strong to even up the scores after hole No. 18. Both juniors finished the tournament with an overall score of 147 forcing a sudden-victory playoff.

The playoff round was played on hole No. 1 with Whaley winning with a birdie securing her first-place finish. Her scores for the tournament were 72-75 – 147 overall.

When asked about her playoff win, Whaley stated “I felt pretty good. My strategy was to stay calm and take it one shot at a time.”

Ogawa wins first IJGT event of the season
Kedlaya & Leyva nab first wins in first IJGT appearances

The IJGT returned to Colleton River Plantation Club on September 6-7, 2014, for the IJGT Junior. Inclement weather forced round two to be called off, leaving round one scores to determine the winners of each division. Thirty-three juniors competed for national rankings and IJGT merit points at the official venue for the 68th U.S. Junior Amateur coming in July 2015.

Round two of the IJGT Junior began at 9 a.m. but as storms rolled in in the early afternoon, tournament officials were forced to cease play. With juniors having completed varying numbers of holes, the tournament was cancelled and round one scores were used to determine divisional winners.

DSC_0788 copySharing the lead for the Boys 15-19 Division at the conclusion of round one, Tennoshin Ogawa of Ichinomiya-shi, Japan, and Shiso Go of Tokyo, Japan, went to a scorecard playoff. Based on the scores of the back nine, Ogawa came away victorious. Both Ogawa and Go were par or better on eight of nine holes on the back nine but it was Ogawa’s four birdies that led him to a 2-under 34. Finishing in second, Go carded a 1-under 35 on the back nine highlighted by two birdies on the back nine. In a tie for third, Chandler McDowell of Alberta, Canada, and Brett Inserra of Upper Saddle River, N.J., finished with scores of 76.

When asked what worked well for him, Ogawa said, “Obviously ball striking, I hit 15 greens. My strategy was to hit more greens this weekend.”

Dong Jin Park of Seoul, led the Boys 14 & Under Division at the conclusion of round one. Park was declared a justified withdraw before teeing off in round two, leaving Mariano Leyva of Puerto Rico, the winner of the division. His score of 85 was highlighted by eight pars and one birdie. Finishing in second was Thomas Pfoestl of Schenna, Italy. He recorded a score of 88 in his first IJGT event of his career.

Leyva said, “My putting was great this weekend, I didn’t three-putt at all. A couple putts did lip out but I just kept focused.”

Ankita Kedlaya of Bangalore, India, won the Girls Division with a score of 81. Despite competing unopposed, Kedlaya posted eight pars and a birdie en route to her first victory in her first IJGT tournament.

As a first-year student at the International Junior Golf Academy (IJGA), Kedlaya said, “I really enjoy working with my coach Tim (Vickers), he’s a really good and it has been a good transaction coming here [to the IJGA].”
