The IJGT traveled to Dormie Club, rated the No. 2 course to play in the state of North Carolina by Golfweek, to host the Major Championship. Offering national rankings and IJGT merit points, juniors competed on a pristine golf course under tough competition. Following the event, the fans have spoken and a photo of Gabriela Teran of Managua, Nicaragua, and Lita Huber of Montevideo, Uruguay, was selected as the fan-favorite IJGT Photo of the Week!
Teran finished in second with a tournament total 154 while Huber finished in third just four strokes behind. Competing in their fourth event of the season, both girls had participated in the IJGT College Series at NC State, the IJGT Lowcountry Open at Oldfield Golf Club and the Georgia Open at Savannah Quarters.
Teran’s best round was her opening round at the Major, featuring two birdies and 11 pars. Adding 12 more pars in her second round, Teran nabbed second place in the Girls Division. She has finished in the top-10 in 13 of 15 events.
Huber finished third with scores of 79 and 80, her round of 79 being her first ever tournament score in the 70s. Huber has participated in 16 IJGT events and placed in the top-10 in 10 of those events.
Congratulations to Teran and Huber!
