IJGT celebrates the NCAA’s Early Signing Period with an IJGT Photo of the Week

November 12-19, 2014, served as the NCAA’s early signing period. For many IJGT juniors, the week-long period meant the lengthy search for the college of the future was over. More than 20 juniors playing on the IJGT put on their new school colors, pulled out their finest pens and made their commitments by signing their National Letters of Intent (NLI).

“A binding agreement between a prospective student-athlete and an NLI member institution,” the NLI establishes a student-athlete’s intent to attend a particular university and to participate in a given sport.

Those IJGT members who participated in the early signing:

Bunyaporn “Nat” Zeng University of Wisconsin
Connor McKay Lipscomb University
Masato Yoshitsugu Hawai’i Pacific University
TJ Kaczan California State University – Bakersfield
J.D. Moore St. Peters University
Aaron Terrazas Oklahoma University
Isidora Nilsson University of South Carolina
Min Yi “Samantha” Huang University of North Texas
Cara Basso Penn State University
Will Hicks Erskine College
Chomchana “Cake” Phuchanbanchob California State University – Northridge
Yeji Shin Georgia Southern University
Will Miles University of South Carolina
Rachel Corry University of Virginia
Kelly Whaley University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill
Thomas Avant Drake University
Kelly Anderson Northern Illinois University
Derrick Villarreal Charleston Southern University
Carter Ehms Cedarville University
Ryan Rose – Rutgers University
Tyler Dierwechter Stetson University
Clementina Rodriguez University of Washington
Keshav Sharma Erskine University
Kasidy Beckel Radford University
Emily Mills – Rutgers University

To celebrate our juniors, we shared photos of each junior as he or she proudly signed the National Letter of Intent. Chomchana “Cake” Phuchanbanchob and her coach, Richard Wedzik, are featured in this week’s special edition of the Photo of the Week.

Foust wins Boys 15-19 Division
Whisler captures second win of season

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — The International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) traveled to Scottsdale, Ariz., for the Scottsdale Open at Troon North on Dec. 14-15, 2013. The two-day, 36-hole event provided the players with a pure desert golf experience on the club’s Pinnacle Course, where an array of natural ravines, foothills, bentgrass greens and giant granite boulders made for challenging, yet memorable play. The backdrop of Arizona’s Pinnacle Peak mountains at every turn, topped off with gorgeous weather, were a gracious add-on for the golfers, who competed for National Rankings and IJGT Merit Points.

Sam FoustIn the Boys 15-19 Division, Samuel Foust of Edina, Minn., was crowned victor with his dominating play. After a tournament-low, 2-under-par 69 in the first round put him atop the leaderboard with a four stroke cushion, Foust came out on the second day poised and determined to keep his momentum going. He ended his final round with an even-par 71, which put him at a tournament total of 2-under-par 140. This secured a nine-stroke victory for Foust, who also earned the Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award, along with Thomas Avant of Chandler, Ariz., for their even-par rounds. Foust sank 11 pars and four birdies on the day to cap off a spectacular outing.

When asked about the strongest part of his game over the weekend, as well as his mindset going into the final round, Foust explained, “Driving the ball was probably the strongest part of my game… I was just trying to expand my lead and stay ahead.”

This was Foust’s first appearance and win with the IJGT.

Rounding out the top three in the Boys 15-19 Division were Jackson Whisenhunt of Phoenix, Ariz., and Avant, who carded tournament totals of 149 and 150, respectively.

Jack WhislerThe Boys 14 & Under Division was spearheaded by Jack Whisler of Scottsdale, Ariz., who finished the two-day event with a tournament total of 166. Whisler carded respectable back-to-back 83’s on the unforgiving Pinnacle Course, and was able to extend a 14-stroke lead after the first round to an ultimate 22-stroke victory. He tallied four pars and a birdie on the par-5 number No. 5, while also playing the course’s three par-5s in even-par for his final round.

When considering any pressure on the final day to hold onto his first-round lead, Whisler stated, “I didn’t really think about that. It was just me against the course, trying to improve my score from yesterday.”

This is Whisler’s second win in as many events for the IJGT. His first win also came in his hometown, at the West Coast Kickoff at TPC Scottsdale on Sept. 1-2.

Reese Phillips of Murrieta, Calif., landed in second place with a total score of 188.

This was the Fall finale for IJGT’s West Coast Tour, which will be in action next on Feb. 1-2, 2014, for the Major Championship at Presidio Golf Course in San Francisco, Calif. To register for this Event, or others, visit IJGT.com or call (843) 785-2444.

Highlighted Players of the Week – May 11-12, 2013

 

Northeast Tour

C.J. HughesThe International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) made its second to last trip of the Northeast Tour at Hershey Country Club  for the IJGT Major Championship Presented by IJGA this past weekend.  This Event is one of many golfers’ favorites and most importantly was our second Major Championship of the Northeast Tour.  The course was in spectacular shape all weekend and a true test to all golfers.  However, the weather did not help the players with scattered showers on Saturday and wind gust of nearly 20 mph on Sunday.  Through the tough conditions, C.J. Hughes of Indiana, Pa., and Zora Moore of Milford, N.J., overcame the adverse conditions and earned Player of the Week honors.

Hughes is no stranger to IJGT tournaments.  He has played in six events this season and had four top-10 finishes including back-to-back top-five finishes in the Boys 14 Under Division.  This weekend Hughes was determined to finish strong for the final Major of the 2012-2013 IJGT Northeast Season.  He got off to a good start on the first day with all pars and three bogeys on the front nine and some confidence going into the back nine.  Hughes kept the momentum going after the turn starting with a birdie and finishing with all pars and one bogey carding an impressive 3-over-par 74 and even-par on the back nine.

This great showing put Hughes in second place going into the final round, only one stroke back of the leader Evan Katz of Washington, D.C..  On Sunday the weather conditions were even worse.  Battling the winds, Hughes once again showed poise and consistency.  He started off the second round a little slow, but bounced back with impressive back-to-back birdies on holes Nos. 5 and 6.  Hughes battled Katz all weekend, but ultimately fell short of the title.  Although he fell short of a title, he did tie for a second-place finish and his first of the 2012-2013 IJGT Season.  We would like to congratulate C.J. Hughes on a great weekend and look forward to seeing him in Orlando, Fla., for the Bridgestone Golf Tournament of Champions.

Zora MooreIn the Girls Division, Moore earned herself a well-deserved Player of the Week honor.  This was Moore’s third IJGT tournament of the Northeast Tour, where she placed second with an 81-80—161 final score.  Moore was very consistent with her game all weekend, which was not easy to do considering the brutal weather conditions.  Seeking her first IJGT title, Moore received her second, second-place finish this past weekend.  Moore was down three strokes going into Sunday’s round so she knew she would have to go low on Sunday’s round.  Moore went on to par 10 holes on her final day, carding a 9-over-par 80 and a second-place finish.  We would like to congratulate Zora Moore on a great tournament, and we wish her the best of luck at the Bridgestone Golf Tournament of Champions.

 


Southeast Tour

Aaron ElmoreLast weekend, the International Junior Golf Tour traveled to Orlando, Fla., for the Orlando Junior at Falcon’s Fire Golf Club. Players were introduced to both a magnificent Rees Jones designed course in the peak of its condition as well as the unpredictable weather of central Florida. While known for sunshine, Orlando delivered a nasty dose of rain that bogged the course down for Sunday and added a new dimension of difficulty for the final round. What could have been a disastrous day for most, a few players managed to step up to the challenge and take the course head on.

Aaron Elmore has been a regular player on the IJGT Discovery Tour since his debut in November at Oyster Reef where he finished in first place. Aaron has performed well on the Discovery Tour, finishing first, second, or third in six of seven tournaments. Elmore made an exciting leap into the Boys 14 Under Division over the weekend, and finished in an astonishing second place. It is quite an achievement when his graduation year, 2020, is taken into consideration. Elmore did not let a lack of experience stand in his way, and showed great poise and course management en route to carding a day-to-day score of 88-81. He also managed to lead the division in par-3 performance with a 3.38 average. The IJGT wishes Aaron the best, and is very excited to watch this young player develop in future tournaments.

Wei-Wei ZhangWei-Wei Zhang, playing in her first IJGT event as part of the Gary Gilchrist Golf Academy, finished in an impressive third place. Zhang carded a final-round score of 1-under-par 71, a noteworthy achievement considering the increased difficulty of the course from Saturday to Sunday. Besides going 1-under-par on Sunday, Zhang also scored an incredible 28 pars on the weekend, which placed her second in the division in that category. Zhang showed great maturity, poise, and confidence en route to her third-place finish and the IJGT looks forward to seeing her in the future.

 


West Coast Tour

Thomas AvantTroon North, an exquisite golf course carved out of the High Sonoran Desert in Scottsdale, Ariz., was host to an exciting weekend of competition at the PURE Grips Shootout at Troon North. The moments of awe and wonder at the incredible beauty of the desert course are short lived, as it certainly burned more than a few players over the weekend. Temperatures hovered in the 90’s both days and turned the Monument course into a test of stamina, precision and practical course management.

In the Boys 15-19 Division, Thomas Avant finished with a final score of 78-80 and finished in second place. Avant was able to card three well-executed birdies over the weekend while also keeping small mistakes to a minimum. Highlights for Avant include leading the division with a 4.15 par-4 average while also managing to card 19 pars over the course of the weekend. Avant has a lot to be proud of after his performance on the daunting Monument Course.

Moibhi TyndallMoibhi Tyndall, playing in his third IJGT West Coast event, was ready for the challenges of desert golf. Tyndall made smart decisions throughout the weekend that set him up for an impressive second-place finish in the Boys 14 Under Division. Tyndall’s positive attitude and head-on approach to the difficult course earn him Player of the Week honors, and the IJGT hopes to see Tyndall in action again soon.

Final Results from the PURE Grips Shootout at Troon North

 

Christifulli captures crown at Troon North
Nam earns first IJGT title in Boys 14 Under Division

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – The International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) hosted the PURE Grips Shootout at Troon North Golf Club on May 11-12. The Scottsdale heat played a factor as the competitors trudged up and down the hills on the Monument Course at Troon North. Two champions were crowned giving their mothers an unforgettable Mother’s Day present.


Michael ChristifulliMichael Christifulli of Paradise Valley, Ariz., earned his first IJGT title of the season after putting together a gritty final-round score of 5-over-par 77.  On Saturday, Christfulli got off to a hot start going 1-under-par in his first eight holes. After an even-par 36 on the front nine, he ran into a few obstacles on the difficult back nine to finish with a score of 3-over-par 75.

Christifulli was not alone atop the leaderboard after Saturday’s round. TJ Kathrineberg of Mesa, Ariz., had a share of the lead with a 3-over-par 75. Both players earned KENTWOOL Socks Lo-Pro Award honors with their first-round score.

Sunday was a tough day for scoring conditions as the round from Saturday physically drained many of the competitors. The Monument Course tests your playing ability as well as your physical ability. Christifulli was determined to come up with the victory because he wanted redemption after not being able to play in the PURE Grips Junior Open back on Dec 8-9, 2012 at Troon North – Pinnacle Course. Down the stretch, Christifulli made two key birdies on the back nine that gave him the cushion he needed to secure the victory.

“My plan was to put the ball in play,” said Christifulli. “I knew that approach would give me a chance, but I also tried to make some good putts.”

Coming in second place was Thomas Avant of Chandler, Ariz., finishing with a tournament total of 158. Finishing in a tie for third place were Jackson Whisenhunt of Phoenix, Ariz., and Kathrineberg carding a 159 tournament score over the weekend.
Mason NamIn the Boys 14 Under Division, Mason Nam of Scottsdale, Ariz., ran away with his first IJGT title after putting together a solid final-round score of 5-over-par 77. Nam got off to a slow start on Saturday carding a front-nine score of 5-over-par 41. Things turned around quickly on the back nine where Nam made three birdies en route to a 2-under-par 34. His score of 3-over-par 75 earned him KENTWOOL Socks Lo-Pro Award honors.

On Sunday, Nam got off to a great start playing his first 12 holes in 1-over-par. His fellow competitors could not match his great start giving Nam a clear path to victory. Although he did not finish as strong as he would like, Nam was still very pleased with his victory.

“Definitely one of the hardest courses I have played in a tournament,” said Nam. “It was in really good condition.”

Finishing in a tie for second place were Cole Shintaku of Honolulu, Hawaii, and Moibhi Tyndall of Mountain View, Calif., with scores of 162.

The Clazic Belts Low Final Round Award went to the champions Christifulli and Nam for their scores of 5-over-par 77.
