The IJGT traveled to Kiawah Island, S.C., to host the South Carolina Open on February 14-15, 2015. In exchange for beautiful ocean views on both the Ocean Course and the Turtle Point course, juniors braved cold and blustery conditions as they competed for IJGT Merit Points and national rankings during the two-day, 36-hole event.
A photo of the Boys 14 & Under Division champion Thomas Pfoestl of Schenna, Italy, was selected as this week’s IJGT Photo of the Week. Pfoestl shot 83 in both rounds on the way to a division-best tournament total of 166. He carded two birdies in round two on the par-5 10th hole and the par-5 13th hole.
Pfoestl maintained his No. 1 ranking on the International Junior Golf Tour with the win. The victory was his third this season and second in a row. Pfoestl’s other first-place finishes came in the MAJOR Championship at Dormie Club in November and the Carolina Classic at Colleton River in January.
