Junior World Qualifier at Golden Bear – Final results (May 3, 2015)

Cheng wins Boys 15-19 Division in playoff fashion

Myers captures first IJGT title 

The International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) Southeast Tour remained in Hilton Head Island, S.C., to host the Junior World Qualifier at Golden Bear on May 2-3, 2015. Juniors competed in warm and sunny conditions for IJGT Merit Points, national rankings, and exemptions into the IMG Academy Junior World Championship and North American Junior Amateur during the two-day, 36-hole event.

Matt ChengMatt Cheng (left) of Taipei, Taiwan, and Ryoto Furuya of Alpharetta, Ga., were tied for first in the Boys 15-19 Division with 147 tournament totals after 36 holes. The pair faced off in a playoff on the par-5 18th hole. Cheng sent both of his approach shots into the middle of the fairway and reached the green in three to set himself up nicely for birdie. He ended up making par to win the playoff and the Boys 15-19 Division.

“Amazing,” Cheng said when asked how it felt to win this weekend. “I haven’t won a tournament in a while so it’s good to be back.”

Cheng carded a 2-over 74 in the first round to put himself in contention for the title. He then carded six birdies in round two on the way to a 1-over 73 second-round score. He carded 10 birdies during the tournament to earn the EyeLine Golf Golden Putter Award, the award presented to the junior to card the most birdies in each division. Cheng’s 2-iron was the best club in his bag this weekend. “My 2-iron saved me a lot on this course since it’s so narrow.”

Cheng was particularly successful on par-5s, which he had a division-best 4.5 average on for the weekend.

Second-place finisher Furuya carded a 1-over 73 in round one and a 74 in round two to finish with a 147 tournament total.

There was a three-way tie for third in the Boys 15-19 Division. Dong Jin Park of Seoul, South Korea, Jason Stokes of Channel Islands, Jersey, and Frederic Ruess of Hamburg, Germany, finished with 148 tournament totals. Park carded a 3-under 69 in the second round to earn the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award, the award presented to the male and female juniors to card the lowest scores in the final round of an event.

Sophie GuoSophie Guo (left) of Bluffton, S.C., edged out second-place finisher Jasmine Chee of Hong Kong, China, to win the Girls Division by two strokes. Guo earned both the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award for her second-round 2-over 74 and the EyeLine Golf Golden Putter Award for her eight birdies.

“I’m glad I won because this is the first win I have in the whole year so I’m happy,” Guo said after her victory.

Guo carded back-to-back birdies three times during the tournament.

Chee matched Guo’s round one even-par 72 to share the lead after round one, but carded a 4-over 76 in the second round to finish with a 148 tournament total, good for second place in the Girls Division.

Lita Huber of Montevideo, Uruguay, finished third with a 153 tournament total.

Betty Horaney of Longview, Texas, carded her first-ever hole-in-one on the par-3 eighth hole.

Bronson MyersBronson Myers (left) of Columbia, S.C., earned his first IJGT victory, winning the Boys 14 & Under Division by four strokes. He knocked one stroke off his round one 4-over 76 to card a 3-over 75 in round two, good for a 151 tournament total.

The highlight of the tournament for Myers came in round one. “Yesterday on [hole No.] 18 I was like 100 yards out and I put it to a foot-and-a-half and made birdie, so that was pretty cool,” he explained after the tournament. The 18th hole was Myers favorite and he birdied it both days. He finished with six birdies to earn the EyeLine Golf Golden Putter Award for the Boys 14 & Under Division.

Brett Schell of St. Augustine, Fla., finished second with a 155 two-day total. Chase Phillips of Hilton Head Island, S.C., rounded out the Boys 14 & Under Division finishing third with a 164 tournament total.

They matched each other stroke for stroke on the first playoff hole, both carding birdies on the par-5 hole No. 10. The playoff continued to hole No. 18, where both players made par. The duo returned to hole No. 10 where they stayed neck and neck by making par. The action then returned to the 18th hole, where Hui won the fourth playoff hole and locked down his victory in the Boys 15-19 Division. When asked how he remained focused during the playoff, Hui kept it simple responding, “Just hit the ball straight.”

Hui knocked 10 strokes off his round one score to card an even-par 70 in round two. He led his division in birdies with seven. He birdied the par-5 10th hole in both rounds. His second round even-par 70 earned him the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award, the award presented to the male and female junior to card the lowest score in the final round of the event.

Stokes started the second round strong making par on the first seven holes and finished the tournament in second place. In third was Chandler McDowell of Springbrook, Canada with a 153 tournament total.

Jackson Skeen of Johnson City, Tenn., finished in second with a tournament total of 164. Chase Phillips and Yuxuan Zou, both of Hilton Head Island, S.C., finished just two strokes behind Skeen to finish in third with tournament totals of 166.

Foxley, Guo nab IJGT Player of the Week honors – Nov. 4, 2014

Returning to the Palmetto Hall Plantation, the IJGT’s Southeast Tour hosted the IJGT Island Open on the Arthur Hills Course on November 1-2, 2014. Cold temperatures and heavy winds greeted juniors for round one, forcing the field to utilize layered clothing and winter hats to fend off the conditions. Round two offered improved conditions thanks to the sun and juniors found it easier to post low scores. Following the event, the IJGT is proud to award this week’s Player of the Week honors to Rowan Foxley of Arlington, Wash., and Sophie Guo of Bluffton, S.C.

Foxley, Rowan 11.4.14

Rowan Foxley finished finished T8 at the IJGT Island Open

Foxley started slowly in the first round but bounced back tremendously in round two. Through the tough conditions of round one, Foxley struggled with bogeys but went on to post seven pars on the day. Returning for round two with determination, he carded five birdies and seven pars to shave an impressive 14 strokes from his round one score. Foxley’s round-two 1-over 73 not only moved him into the top 10 but also earned him the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award, the award presented to the junior with the lowest score in the final round of the event.

Foxley finished eighth which becomes his first top-10 finish on the IJGT.

Guo, Sophie 11.4.14

Sophie Guo finished 3rd in the IJGT Island Open

The conditions of round one also troubled Guo but much like Foxley, she came back strong in round two. Guo posted an even-par 72 for the second round, an impressive twenty-two stroke improvement from her round-one score. Her performance consisted of three birdies and ten pars, five of which came consecutively to finish her round. Guo’s Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award performance moved her from seventh to third, her second top-three finish of the season.

Congratulations to both Rowan Foxley and Sophie Guo on their Player of the Week honors!

Koguchi nabs first IJGT win at Palmetto Hall
Tadokoro earns first victory of the season and third career IJGT win

The IJGT hosted the IJGT Island Open at Palmetto Hall on the plantation’s Arthur Hills Course on November 1-2, 2014. Cold temperatures and heavy winds greeted juniors for the opening round before conditions improved for round two. Juniors from various states and countries competed for IJGT merit points and national rankings.

DSC_1398cWataru Koguchi of Fotouka, Japan, finished first in the Boys 15-19 Division by combining scores of 78 and 73 for a two-day total of 151. With consistent scoring in both rounds, Koguchi carded five total birdies and 21 total pars for his tournament. Koguchi entered the final round three strokes back of then leader, Brett Krekorian of Andover, Mass. His final-round 73 tied for the lowest final-round score of the division, allowing him to move into first and win by three strokes. The second-round 73 also earned Koguchi a share of the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award, the award presented to the male and female junior(s) with the lowest score in the final round of the tournament.

In second place was Santiago Diaz of Merida, Mexico, with a two-day total of 154. Sharing third place was Krekorian and Aaron Terrazas of Veracruz, Mexico, both carding a tournament total 155.

Rowan Foxley of Arlington, Wash., also earned the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award by matching Koguchi’s second-round 73.

DSC_1556cIn the Boys 14 & Under Division, Mikus Ming of Smiths, Bermuda, was victorious. After posting a round-one score of 87 and sitting in second behind then leader Arthur Draijer of Sandweiler, Luxembourg, Ming posted the low final round of his division, an 89, to move into first and capture the title. Using his 5-iron to sink a hole-in-one on the 160-yard par-3 No. 6 was the highlight of Ming’s first round. He also added 13 pars and a birdie to his performance.

In second was Draijer with a total 178 and rounding out the top-three was Aiden McCloskey of Northboro, Mass., with a tournament total 183.

 

DSC_1591cFinishing first in the Girls Division was Sera Tadakoro of Osaka, Japan.

With the help of 11 pars and four birdies, Tadokoro’s second round, even-par 72 was tied for the lowest score of the tournament. She earned one of two Clazic Belts Low Final Round Awards for the girls, the second going to Sophie Guo of Bluffton, S.C., who also scored an even-par 72.

In second was Huang with a total 157 and Guo finished third with a two-day total 166.

Yarnall, Lapvisuttisin among those receiving IJGT Player of the Week honors – Sept. 30, 2014

NORTHEAST TOUR

The IJGT’s Northeast Tour was in Rochester, N.Y., for The Upstate Challenge at Brook Lea Country Club. With ideal golfing weather the juniors recorded quality scores during both days of the tournament. Impressive play from Sean Stanistreet of Camillus, N.Y., and Caroline Yarnall of East Aurora, N.Y., earned the pair IJGT Player of the Week honors for the northeast this week.

stanistreet

Stanistreet of the Boys 15-19 Division, began the tournament with a slower than desired start, posting a round one score of 79 but returned for round two with a fire in his belly. With birdies on four holes, including the extremely difficult par-5 No. 2, Stanistreet shaved six strokes from his round one score and recorded a 1-over 73 for the final round. A solid swing off of the tee and clutch putting were the key to his impressive final round performance. His score was good enough to put him in contention down the stretch and landed him in a three-way tie for third place.

yarnall

Yarnall of the Girls Division, maintained her consistent play throughout both rounds of the tournament. She made par on the difficult par-4 No. 8 on both days and also made par on the hazardous par-5 No. 10 on the final day. Her positive attitude carried her through her entire performance and the IJGT expects great things from her in the future.

Congratulations to both Sean Stanistreet and Caroline Yarnall with their praise-worthy performances this week. We wish them luck as they continue their golf play throughout the fall season.

SOUTHEAST TOUR

The IJGT hosted the Lowcountry Open at Oldfield Golf Club in Okatie, S.C., on September 27-28, 2014, as a part of the 2014 fall Southeast Tour.  The course was in great shape and despite the small amount of rain that was in the forecast, the players proceeded to shoot low rounds throughout the weekend. Following the event, Sophie Guo and Pongpalin Lapvisuttisin were named the Players of the Week in the southeast.

Sophie Guo

Guo was able to jump out to a first round lead by shooting a 1-under 71 on Saturday with back-to-back birdies on holes 13 and 14, and a streak of six consecutive pars on the front nine.  In round two had a consistent finish by carding ten pars and three birdies, boosting her to her highest finish on tour to date, a second place finish only one stroke behind the leader.

Pongpalin Lapvisuttisin

In the Boys 15-19 Division, Lapvisuttisin nabbed Player of the Week honors thanks to yet another strong bid at a comeback on Sunday.  Lapvisuttisin’s first round score of 77 landed him in a tie for 15th, however he recovered and shot a 1-under 71 on Sunday which put him in the hunt, along with giving him a share of the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award for the weekend.  Lapvisuttisin recorded even par on the front and finished his second round bogey-free on the back.  Lapvisuttisin’s strong final round was enough to hoist him to a tie for eighth place in the tournament.

Congratulations to both Sophie Guo and Pongpalin Lapvisuttisin on their achievements and being named Southeast Players of the Week.

After sharing the lead in the Boys 15-19 Division after round one, Tennoshin Ogawa of Ichinomiya-shi, Japan, and Conor Byrne of Dublin, Ireland, battled to the final hole before Ogawa endured for victory.

Cake Phuchanbanchob of Chiang Mai, Thailand, secured first in the Girls Division after combining consistent rounds of 72 for a two-day total of 144.
