IJGT Alumni Shine at Western Refining College All-American

The International Junior Golf Tour had three alumni shine at the Western Refining College All-American which took place November 7-8, at El Paso Country Club.

Zach Jaworski, a current senior at Vanderbilt University, earned the victory after putting together a solid 3 day performance of 71-69-67 for a 6 under 207 total. Jaworski won the event by shooting the best final day score, 67, and holding off Vanderbilt teammate Matthias Schwab, who finished in a three way tie for second place.

Jaworski struggled in the middle of his round with bogeys on 7 and 8. He recovered strongly over the last ten holes, where he carded 4 birdies and 6 pars. This is what Jaworski told Golfstat.com following his round, “Off the tee I wasn’t as solid as I would have liked, but around the greens I got the putter going and got hot. I made a lot of birdies coming in and a 32 on the back nine really did it.”

Two other IJGT Alumni had successful showing in the tournament. Zach Wright of LSU finished in three way tie for second and Beau Hossler finished tied for fifth. Hossler started the in 11th place but was able to card his eighth round under par for the season which helped move him into a tie for 5th.
