Caddies are allowed to walk or ride in a cart. We will have all players eligible riding both days. A player is allowed only one caddie at a time. Caddies are not to over coach (45sec per shot MAX) their player or disrupt the play of the group. Any caddie violating these rules will be given one warning. If they continue to violate the caddie rules/Pace of Play Rules, they will be removed as caddie for their player and not allowed to caddie for any player for the rest of the tournament.

A player is responsible for the caddie and any penalties given to the caddie will be assessed to his/her player. Pull Carts are allowed for all age divisions provided the host course permits.

Caddies may be asked to share a cart if another player in their group already has a cart.

Medical Condition: Any player or spectator may use a cart due to a valid medical condition. Please contact tournament staff for all medical questions.

SOFT SPIKES ARE REQUIRED FOR THE ENTIRE TOURNAMENT.

PACE OF PLAY
The JGC Pace of Play Policy utilizes a two checkpoint system.
Players will not receive warnings unless they are being monitored.
Each group is responsible for monitoring and maintaining their own pace

To avoid penalty, groups must complete each checkpoint hole:
1. Under the allotted time, or
2. Within 15 minutes of the group ahead.
Checkpoints will be on holes #9 and #18, unless otherwise indicated.
All players in a group in breach of the pace of play policy at any checkpoint are subject to penalty.

PENALTIES
First Breach of Round = 1 stroke penalty to each player in the group.
Second Breach of Round = additional 2 stroke penalty to each player in the group.

NOTIFICATION
Any group that completes a checkpoint hole in breach of the pace of play policy will be notified by an Official. Officials at checkpoints should never be confronted. (Please reference Code of Conduct)

It is the player’s responsibility to record and include any penalties assessed on their scorecards. Penalties are to be added to the checkpoint hole where the breach occurred. (usually holes #9 or #18)

POSITION
First Group(s) off Either Tee – The first group(s) will be in breach of the pace of play policy if they take more than the allotted time to finish a checkpoint hole until they reach (within 15 minutes) any group ahead. After they reach a group ahead, both conditions must be met to be in breach of the pace of play policy.

Position with Group Ahead – To stay within 15 minutes of the group ahead, players should never have an open hole and they should be in the fairway on par 4’s and 5’s when the group ahead leaves the green.

CONCERNED PLAYERS AND APPEALS
A player concerned about slow players in a group should first remind that player of the pace of play policy and encourage them to play more efficiently. The concerned player may, before or after penalties are assessed, request an Official to monitor the group.

Appeals for exceptional situations will be considered only in the scoring area after the completion of the round and prior to the return of a player’s scorecard.

DEFINITIONS
Timing – A group’s completion time at each checkpoint is measured when the flagstick is replaced in the hole once all players in the group have holed out.

Allotted Time – The “allotted time” is the maximum time allowed to complete play of the course or the holes between checkpoints. The allotted time is predetermined by the Tournament Committee and may be adjusted between rounds. Time for ball searches, rulings, and walking or travel time between holes is included in the allotted time. The allotted time for each course will be posted in a prominent location at the tournament site. Maximum Time to Complete Holes: Par 3 (13min), Par 4 (15min), and Par 5 (18min)

Rule 6-7. Undue Delay; Slow Play states: “The player must play without undue delay and in accordance with any pace of play guidelines that the Committee may establish. Between completion of a hole and playing from the next teeing ground, the player must not unduly delay play.”

SCORING & AWARDS
Once you have finished your round, your entire group must go directly to the scoring area. Make sure that your hole by hole scores are correct; you have 2 signatures and turn in your scorecard personally. Do not rely on someone else to turn it in for you. We strongly recommend you stay until your score has been posted on the scoreboard so that there are no questions regarding your score.

SPECTATOR POLICY
A guideline infraction should be brought to the attention of Junior Golf Championship staff member or JGC rules official immediately. If an infraction is observed, warned, penalized, and it persists the player is subject to disqualification and their spectators removed from the property in compliance with JGC Code of Conduct Policy. PLEASE see Spectator Policy in its entirety on our website NEWS page.

LOCAL RULES & SCORECARDS
Each player will be given their scorecard and a Local Rule/Pin Sheet on the #1 tee. It is important that you are at your starting hole(s) 15 minutes before your tee time so that you don’t miss any important information. You should see the group in front of you hit their tee shots on #1 and to help keep tee times on time.

A player concerned about slow players in a group should first remind that player of the pace of play policy and encourage them to play more efficiently. The concerned player may, before or after penalties are assessed, request an Official to monitor the group.

Appeals for exceptional situations will be considered only in the scoring area after the completion of the round and prior to the return of a player’s scorecard.

DEFINITIONS
Timing – A group’s completion time at each checkpoint is measured when the flagstick is replaced in the hole once all players in the group have holed out.

Allotted Time – The “allotted time” is the maximum time allowed to complete play of the course or the holes between checkpoints. The allotted time is predetermined by the Tournament Committee and may be adjusted between rounds. Time for ball searches, rulings, and walking or travel time between holes is included in the allotted time. The allotted time for each course will be posted in a prominent location at the tournament site. Maximum Time to Complete Holes: Par 3 (13min), Par 4 (15min), and Par 5 (18min)

Rule 6-7. Undue Delay; Slow Play states: “The player must play without undue delay and in accordance with any pace of play guidelines that the Committee may establish. Between completion of a hole and playing from the next teeing ground, the player must not unduly delay play.”

SCORING & AWARDS
Once you have finished your round, your entire group must go directly to the scoring areas located inside the clubhouse. Make sure that your hole by hole scores are correct; you have 2 signatures and turn in your scorecard personally. Do not rely on someone else to turn it in for you. We strongly recommend you stay until your score has been posted on the scoreboard so that there are no questions regarding your score.

SPECTATOR POLICY

Caddies are allowed to walk or ride in a cart. A player is allowed only one caddie at a time. Caddies are not to over coach (45sec per shot MAX) their player or disrupt the play of the group. Any caddie violating these rules will be given one warning. If they continue to violate the caddie rules/Pace of Play Rules, they will be removed as caddie for their player and not allowed to caddie for any player for the rest of the tournament.

A player is responsible for the caddie and any penalties given to the caddie will be assessed to his/her player. Pull Carts are allowed for all age divisions provided the host course permits.

Caddies for players that qualify will be allowed to take a cart but players must walk during play unless otherwise communicated by JGC staff. The Taylormade Junior Open will have players (8-9 Boys, 10-11 Boys, and 10-12 Girls) riding between holes and tee to green based on weather and pace of play. Carts are available on a first come, first serve basis and are not guaranteed. Legacy on Lake Lanier Golf Club has a limited number of carts available for our use.

TEE TIMES
Tee times will be posted on the “Results” page of our website by Thursday June 18th, (9pm CST).

CADDIE/SPECTATOR CARTS
Caddies are mandatory for 8-9 Boys, 10-11 Boys, and 10-12 Girls. Caddies are prohibited (not allowed) for Boys 12-13, Boys 14-18 and Girls 13-18.

Caddies are allowed to walk or ride in a cart. A player is allowed only one caddie at a time. Caddies are not to over coach (45sec per shot MAX) their player or disrupt the play of the group. Any caddie violating these rules will be given one warning. If they continue to violate the caddie rules/Pace of Play Rules, they will be removed as caddie for their player and not allowed to caddie for any player for the rest of the tournament.

A player is responsible for the caddie and any penalties given to the caddie will be assessed to his/her player. Pull Carts are allowed for all age divisions provided the host course permits.

Caddies for players that qualify will be allowed to take a cart but players must walk during play unless otherwise communicated by JGC staff. The Taylormade Junior Open will have players (8-9 Boys, 10-11 Boys, and 10-12 Girls) riding between holes and tee to green based on weather and pace of play. Carts are available on a first come, first serve basis and are not guaranteed. The Lakes at Castle Hills Golf Club has a limited number of carts available for our use. Spectator carts will only be allowed for those that need them for medical purposes. Caddies may be asked to share a cart if another player in their group already has a cart.

Medical Condition: Any player, in any age division, may use a cart due to a valid medical condition. Please contact tournament staff for all medical questions.
SOFT SPIKES ARE REQUIRED FOR THE ENTIRE TOURNAMENT.

PACE OF PLAY
The JGC Pace of Play Policy utilizes a two checkpoint system.
Players will not receive warnings unless they are being monitored.
Each group is responsible for monitoring and maintaining their own pace

To avoid penalty, groups must complete each checkpoint hole:
1. Under the allotted time, or
2. Within 15 minutes of the group ahead.
Checkpoints will be on holes #9 and #18, unless otherwise indicated.
All players in a group in breach of the pace of play policy at any checkpoint are subject to penalty.

PENALTIES
First Breach of Round = 1 stroke penalty to each player in the group.
Second Breach of Round = additional 2 stroke penalty to each player in the group.

NOTIFICATION
Any group that completes a checkpoint hole in breach of the pace of play policy will be notified by an Official. Officials at checkpoints should never be confronted. (Please reference Code of Conduct)

It is the player’s responsibility to record and include any penalties assessed on their scorecards. Penalties are to be added to the checkpoint hole where the breach occurred. (usually holes #9 or #18)

POSITION
First Group(s) off Either Tee – The first group(s) will be in breach of the pace of play policy if they take more than the allotted time to finish a checkpoint hole until they reach (within 15 minutes) any group ahead. After they reach a group ahead, both conditions must be met to be in breach of the pace of play policy.

Position with Group Ahead – To stay within 15 minutes of the group ahead, players should never have an open hole and they should be in the fairway on par 4’s and 5’s when the group ahead leaves the green.

CONCERNED PLAYERS AND APPEALS
A player concerned about slow players in a group should first remind that player of the pace of play policy and encourage them to play more efficiently. The concerned player may, before or after penalties are assessed, request an Official to monitor the group.

Appeals for exceptional situations will be considered only in the scoring area after the completion of the round and prior to the return of a player’s scorecard.

DEFINITIONS
Timing – A group’s completion time at each checkpoint is measured when the flagstick is replaced in the hole once all players in the group have holed out.

Allotted Time – The “allotted time” is the maximum time allowed to complete play of the course or the holes between checkpoints. The allotted time is predetermined by the Tournament Committee and may be adjusted between rounds. Time for ball searches, rulings, and walking or travel time between holes is included in the allotted time. The allotted time for each course will be posted in a prominent location at the tournament site. Maximum Time to Complete Holes: Par 3 (13min), Par 4 (15min), and Par 5 (18min)

Rule 6-7. Undue Delay; Slow Play states: “The player must play without undue delay and in accordance with any pace of play guidelines that the Committee may establish. Between completion of a hole and playing from the next teeing ground, the player must not unduly delay play.”

SCORING & AWARDS
Once you have finished your round, your entire group must go directly to the scoring area. Make sure that your hole by hole scores are correct; you have 2 signatures and turn in your scorecard personally. Do not rely on someone else to turn it in for you. We strongly recommend you stay until your score has been posted on the scoreboard so that there are no questions regarding your score.

SPECTATOR POLICY
A guideline infraction should be brought to the attention of Junior Golf Championship staff member or JGC rules official immediately. If an infraction is observed, warned, penalized, and it persists the player is subject to disqualification and their spectators removed from the property in compliance with JGC Code of Conduct Policy. PLEASE see Spectator Policy in its entirety on our website NEWS page

LOCAL RULES & SCORECARDS
Each player will be given their scorecard and a Local Rule/Pin Sheet on the #1 & #10 tee. It is important that you are at your starting hole(s) 15 minutes before your tee time so that you don’t miss any important information. You should see the group in front of you hit their tee shots on #1 and to help keep tee times on time.

Lone Star Junior - Update (Second Round Information) - May 24, 2015LONE STAR Players -

Utilizing the event board council's input, course information, ranking bylaws, qualification guidelines for exemptions, and our tie breaker policy, we determined the final course of action for this event.

The second round and the event has been canceled due to the course being closed. The lake levels have superseded the safety levels on #6 and #7 and made them unplayable. This was the primary reason for the cancelation of the event. We have five courses within 20min of the property for a possible playable course and each one is under water and not playable.

Based on the summer schedule of the players entered, availability of course(s), completing the event as one event, and time lines for qualifying events we will not reschedule the second round. JGC has created a discount code ONLY for the players entered in this event (0515). Please use this code when entering your next event. We also increased number of players we can take at the Taylormade Junior Open to accommodate additional players. We will be using a split tee format (am/pm) at the Taylormade Junior Open.

North American Junior Am qualifying spots, Optimist International qualifying spots, Texas Junior Golf Tour qualifying spots, and IMG Academy Junior World qualifying spots will all be determined based on the holes completed per qualifying age division(s).

Golfweek, Junior Golf Scoreboard, and AJGA are removed from the event due to the items listed above. Unfortunately, we cannot just play another 18holes to get to our 36hole minimum for these rankings. Contiguous play is required as well as maintaining the field of players on both days. This would be extremely challenging since the field is comprised of seven different states. If we did reschedule the one day we may only get the very top in each age group that mattered and then that wouldn't qualify because we didn't meet the minimum number of players to be ranked. It's a complicated situation that we've been digesting since 4am.

Awards for the event will be handed out today from 10-11am at the course. If your name is listed below you can pick up your awards at the course or I will be mailing to you next week.

Parent Feedback - March 7, 2015We hope everyone is doing well during the challenging weather conditions. It's been a blessing to have the opportunity to meet so many wonderful players and families throughout our journey with golf. We know the sacrifices families make when it comes to supporting your children's future. We share those sacrifices as many of our juniors are just now picking up the game. We try to help further our players and families aspirations surrounding this wonderful game. We do what we can and when a parent shares their success and the impact we've made it makes the sacrifices worthwhile and brings extreme excitement. I provided an exciting note below from a family experiencing the next phase of their golfing career. We look forward to a successful year and seeing everyone at the Junior Masters!</strong>

SOFT SPIKES ARE REQUIRED FOR THE ENTIRE TOURNAMENT.

PACE OF PLAY
The JGC Pace of Play Policy utilizes a two checkpoint system.
Players will not receive warnings unless they are being monitored.
Each group is responsible for monitoring and maintaining their own pace

To avoid penalty, groups must complete each checkpoint hole:
1. Under the allotted time, or
2. Within 15 minutes of the group ahead.
Checkpoints will be on holes #9 and #18, unless otherwise indicated.
All players in a group in breach of the pace of play policy at any checkpoint are subject to penalty.

PENALTIES
First Breach of Round = 1 stroke penalty to each player in the group.
Second Breach of Round = additional 2 stroke penalty to each player in the group.

NOTIFICATION
Any group that completes a checkpoint hole in breach of the pace of play policy will be notified by an Official. Officials at checkpoints should never be confronted. (Please reference Code of Conduct)

It is the player’s responsibility to record and include any penalties assessed on their scorecards. Penalties are to be added to the checkpoint hole where the breach occurred. (usually holes #9 or #18)

POSITION
First Group(s) off Either Tee – The first group(s) will be in breach of the pace of play policy if they take more than the allotted time to finish a checkpoint hole until they reach (within 15 minutes) any group ahead. After they reach a group ahead, both conditions must be met to be in breach of the pace of play policy.

Position with Group Ahead – To stay within 15 minutes of the group ahead, players should never have an open hole and they should be in the fairway on par 4’s and 5’s when the group ahead leaves the green.

CONCERNED PLAYERS AND APPEALS
A player concerned about slow players in a group should first remind that player of the pace of play policy and encourage them to play more efficiently. The concerned player may, before or after penalties are assessed, request an Official to monitor the group.

Appeals for exceptional situations will be considered only in the scoring area after the completion of the round and prior to the return of a player’s scorecard.

DEFINITIONS
Timing – A group’s completion time at each checkpoint is measured when the flagstick is replaced in the hole once all players in the group have holed out.

Allotted Time – The “allotted time” is the maximum time allowed to complete play of the course or the holes between checkpoints. The allotted time is predetermined by the Tournament Committee and may be adjusted between rounds. Time for ball searches, rulings, and walking or travel time between holes is included in the allotted time. The allotted time for each course will be posted in a prominent location at the tournament site. Maximum Time to Complete Holes: Par 3 (13min), Par 4 (15min), and Par 5 (18min)

Rule 6-7. Undue Delay; Slow Play states: “The player must play without undue delay and in accordance with any pace of play guidelines that the Committee may establish. Between completion of a hole and playing from the next teeing ground, the player must not unduly delay play.”

JUNIOR MASTERS presented by PGA TOUR Superstore and hosted by Bridgestone G - April 15, 2014The 4th Annual JUNIOR MASTERS presented by PGA TOUR Superstore and hosted by Bridgestone Golf is complete and Green Jackets have been awarded. This event continues to grow globally and boasted 136 players from 13 States and 2 Countries! This momentum is attributed to the players and their families for their positive feedback and we cannot thank you enough!

The Atlanta area has been hit with seasonably cold weather this year. The weather was the primary reason for the greens not healing up from their February punching. It was fair for everyone and everyone had to play the same course and we appreciate the understanding. The biggest challenge for managing the event was the limitation on carts. It was the first time after hundreds of events I could not get access to a cart for marshaling on the course. This was true for many others on the first day but we finally got carts towards the middle of the second round. We have worked this process out with other properties for a seamless process when dealing with carts but they had their own ideas/methodology.

JUNIOR MASTERS presented by PGA TOUR Superstore and hosted by Bridgestone Golf is very excited to announce our 2014 JUNIOR MASTERS Champions! JGC would like to congratulate all participants on their accomplishments and their involvement with junior golf. Each age division provided its own set of memorable endings. The event provided our first three repeat Champion (Steven Fisk)...we also had three players capturing their second Green Jackets (Luke Clanton, Tyler Lipscomb and Abigail Bolt). The event wouldn't be normal without a playoff (or 2). The Boys 14-15 & 10-11 Divisions came down to a playoff to claim the Green Jackets. Congratulations to both players for closing it out on extra holes!

2014 JUNIOR MASTERS Champions presented by PGA TOUR and hosted by Bridgestone Golf
Boys 16-18/Overall Champion - Steven Fisk (Stockbridge, GA)
Boys 14-15 Champion - Dylan Lillard (Cleveland, TN)
Boys 12-13 Champion - Tyler Lipscomb (Carrollton, GA)
Boys 10-11 Champion - Luke Clanton (Hialeah, FL)
Boys 8-9 Champion - Abhay Gupta (Concord, NC)
Girls 15-18/Overall Champion - Madison Caldwell (Dawsonville, GA)
Girls 13-14 Champion - Abigail Bolt (Woodstock, GA)
Girls 10-12 Champion - Kennedy Noe (Knoxville, TN)
Girls 8-9 Champion - Bailey Shoemaker (West Edmeston, NY)

Boys 16-18 Division kept it close with both final pairings posting numerous birdies. It was three time Champion Steven Fisk from Stockbridge, Georgia, posting a two day total 146 for his third Green Jacket. Steven also captured the Overall Boys Championship. Michael Bakker from Windermere, Florida, was a close runner up posting a two day total 147. It was 2011 Junior Masters Champion Wyatt Larkin from Morganton, Georgia, rounding out the top three for the Boys 16-18 Division. I would like to say that Michael, Wyatt, and Steven showed the utmost respect to their playing competitors/staff and showed why they are great role models for younger players. Wyatt Larkin is past recipient of the AJGA Jerry Cole Sportsmanship Award...well deserved.

It was apparent after seeing the score cards of Dylan Lillard from Cleveland, Tennessee, and Avery Price from Gastonia, North Carolina, we were headed for a playoff to determine the Boys 14-15 Division. The playoff lasted four holes before Dylan Lillard closed out the match with a par and a two day total 149. Avery Price captured runner up honors. Addison Nix from Auburn, Alabama, and Austin Mancilla from Lawrenceville, Georgia, tied for third. I would put Addison Nix on the same Sportsmanship plateau as his older peers.

Madison Caldwell from Dawsonville, Georgia, carded a two day total 146 for her first Green Jacket in the Girls 15-18 Division and the Girls Overall Championship. Kaur Hamanprit from Lawrenceville, Georgia, kept it close and maintained pressure on the leader but fell short by one stroke closing with a two day total 147 and runner up honors. Janet Mao from Johns Creek, Georgia, rounded out the top three with a two day total 148 playing in her second Junior Masters. Her little brother had the better finish in 2014 but still a very close sibling rivalry!

The Girls 13-14 Division was decided when 2012 Junior Masters Champion Abigail Bolt from Woodstock, Georgia, posted the lowest back nine during the final round for their division to capture her second Green Jacket and a two day total 157. Another local player Alejandra Ayala from Alpharetta, Georgia, captured runner up honors in her first Junior Masters. Lauren Miller from Niceville, Florida, rounded out the top three with a two day total 163.

The Boys 12-13 Division had defending Champion Tyler Lipscomb from Carrollton, Georgia, holding off a strong charge from Andy Mao and Karl Vilips to capture his second Green Jacket with a two day total 142. Andy Mao from Johns Creek, Georgia, claimed runner up honors with a two day total 144. The lowest round of the event (67) and Junior Masters final round record went to Karl Vilips from Jackson Springs, North Carolina, to round out the top three

Kennedy Noe from Knoxville, Tennessee, playing in her first Junior Masters made the most out of the trip by capturing her first Green Jacket posting a two day total 162 in the Girls 10-12 Division. Makenna Rodriguez from Delray Beach, Florida, took home runner up honors and Madison Logan from Brasstown, North Carolina, rounded out the top three.

The Boys 10-11 Division also came down to a playoff between 2013 Junior Masters Champion Luke Clanton from Hialeah, Florida, and Walter Ghaffar from Lumberton, North Carolina. It was Luke Clanton prevailing on the first playoff hole to capture his second Green Jacket with a two day total 150. Walter Ghaffar took home runner up honors. It was Liam Shin from Norcross, Georgia, and Blake Parkman of Atlanta, Georgia, showing a tie for third to round out the division.

In the Boys 8-9 Division it was Abhay Gupta from Concord, North Carolina, holding off a strong charge from Frisco, Texas, player Davis Ovard to capture his first Green Jacket with a two day total 148. Davis showed his older brother his runner up flag proclaiming the better finish. Alexander Hughes from Dawsonville, Georgia, rounded out the top three.

The Girls 8-9 Division was close but Bailey Shoemaker from West Edmeston, New York, prevailed claiming her first Green Jacket with a two day total 149. The Green Jacket will show well with snow still on the ground. It was Brooke Gober from Hoover, Alabama, making a charge for the Green Jacket only to come up short for runner up honors. Sara Im from Duluth, Georgia, captured third place to round out the top three.

We would like to thank our players and parents for their continued support. JGC would also like to thank the PGA TOUR Superstore and Bridgestone Golf for their continued support of Junior Golf.

PGA TOUR Superstore - Press Release - April 9, 2014PGA TOUR Superstore Growth Plans Signal Experiential Retail is Alive and Well

Mega-Golf Retailer Adding 1 Million Square Feet of New Golf Retail Space over Next Five Years
New stores planned in Florida, Arizona and Texas in 2014

ATLANTA, GA (April 8, 2014) -- PGA TOUR Superstore today announced three new store openings in 2014 and an ambitious growth strategy that will more than double its current retail footprint, adding one million square feet of new golf retail space over the next five years.

As part of its growth plan, the mega-golf retailer will open new interactive retail experience stores this fall in Orlando, Florida; North Scottsdale, Arizona; and Southlake, Texas.

“Despite a flat retail landscape in the golf industry, we have growth plans that prove experiential retail is alive and well,” said PGA TOUR Superstore President and CEO Dick Sullivan. “We currently have plans to grow PGA TOUR Superstore’s presence by up to 25 percent per year over the next five years in locations across the U.S.

PGA TOUR Superstore currently has 19 retail stores ranging from 40,000 to 50,000 square feet per store. Each store has up to 14 custom fitting simulators and practice bays in every location. The retailer plans to have up to 50 locations by 2018.

“What’s different about PGA TOUR Superstore is we purposely design our stores with what the golfers want from an experience and product assortment point of view,” added Sullivan. “When it snows in Chicago or New York, golfers can come into our stores, work on their game and see their ball flight on our launch monitors. And they can putt on our 2,000 square-foot putting greens. This experiential format works, and we’re excited to roll it out to many more markets over the next several years.”

PGA TOUR Superstores provide unique experiences to golf enthusiasts of all levels. Each store features certified golf pros, personalized golf lessons and the best in golf technology, equipment, apparel, custom fitting and repairs. The stores are owned and operated by Golf & Tennis Pro Shop, Inc., whose controlling owner and chairman is Arthur M. Blank, retired Home Depot Co-Founder and owner of the Atlanta Falcons.

“We couldn’t have picked three better markets to expand in this year,” added Sullivan. “Orlando is a new market for us and builds on our presence in Florida, while Southlake and North Scottsdale allow us to add stores into two existing markets.”

About the New Stores in 2014:
• Orlando – The Orlando store will be located at 7603 Turkey Lake Road near the intersection of Turkey Lake Road and West Sand Lake Road in Bayhill Plaza. This 50,000 square foot store will be the third Florida location for PGA TOUR Superstore, following its Delray Beach and Naples locations.
• Scottsdale – The new North Scottsdale store will be located at 7000 East Mayo Blvd. This store will be the third in Arizona for PGA TOUR Superstore, joining the existing Scottsdale and Chandler locations.
• Southlake – The Southlake, Texas store will be located on the southwest corner of Southlake Boulevard and Kimball Avenue. This store will be the third in Texas for PGA TOUR Superstore, joining two Plano store locations.

Second Breach of Round = additional 2 stroke penalty to each player in the group.

NOTIFICATION

POSITION
First Group(s) off Either Tee – The first group(s) will be in breach of the pace of play policy if they take more than the allotted time to finish a checkpoint hole until they reach (within 15 minutes) any group ahead. After they reach a group ahead, both conditions must be met to be in breach of the pace of play policy.

Position with Group Ahead – To stay within 15 minutes of the group ahead, players should never have an open hole and they should be in the fairway on par 4’s and 5’s when the group ahead leaves the green.

CONCERNED PLAYERS AND APPEALS
A player concerned about slow players in a group should first remind that player of the pace of play policy and encourage them to play more efficiently. The concerned player may, before or after penalties are assessed, request an Official to monitor the group.

Appeals for exceptional situations will be considered only in the scoring area after the completion of the round and prior to the return of a player’s scorecard.

JUNIOR GOLF CHAMPIONSHIPS - Spectator Policy - March 10, 2014Parents, relatives, friends, and other spectators are welcomed and encouraged to come out to the course to watch the competition. The following guidelines have been established to ensure a level playing field for all contestants.

• Spectator carts may be permitted during tournament rounds (if available). Spectator carts are considered a privilege and may not be offered at certain courses. The host course's rules and regulations regarding spectator carts take precedence over Junior Golf Championship policy unless otherwise specified. Carts must stay on the cart path at all times except in case of weather evacuation. Only two spectators may ride in a cart at any given time.

• Spectators need to stay clear of the playing areas (tee boxes, fairways, greens) and should walk on the cart paths.

• When driving in carts, please be adhere to other players by ceasing to drive while others are preparing to hit.

• Keep a proper distance from the players – a minimum of 25 yards is recommended. Parents and spectators cannot walk with players during tournament play or engage in conversation.

• Do not give advice to any player. Talking to competitors during tournament rounds is not allowed, as it could be perceived as giving advice resulting in a two-stroke penalty on the player. (Please refer to USGA Rule 8-1 for definition).

• Spectators are not to give rulings to competitors before, during, or after the tournament round – only Junior Golf Championships rules officials are authorized to give rulings to competitors.

• Cellular phones, beepers, and other electronic devices are permitted, but should be set to silent/vibrate/off mode to keep from disrupting players.

• Under no circumstance will pets of any kind be allowed on the course.
A guideline infraction should be brought to the attention of Junior Golf Championship staff member or JGC rules official immediately. If an infraction is observed, warned, penalized, and it persists the player is subject to disqualification and their spectators removed from the property in compliance with JGC Code of Conduct Policy.

It is the player’s responsibility to record and include any penalties assessed on their scorecards. Penalties are to be added to the checkpoint hole where the breach occurred. (usually holes #9 or #18)

POSITION
First Group(s) off Either Tee – The first group(s) will be in breach of the pace of play policy if they take more than the allotted time to finish a checkpoint hole until they reach (within 15 minutes) any group ahead. After they reach a group ahead, both conditions must be met to be in breach of the pace of play policy.

Position with Group Ahead – To stay within 15 minutes of the group ahead, players should never have an open hole and they should be in the fairway on par 4’s and 5’s when the group ahead leaves the green.

CONCERNED PLAYERS AND APPEALS
A player concerned about slow players in a group should first remind that player of the pace of play policy and encourage them to play more efficiently. The concerned player may, before or after penalties are assessed, request an Official to monitor the group.

Appeals for exceptional situations will be considered only in the scoring area after the completion of the round and prior to the return of a player’s scorecard.

DEFINITIONS
Timing – A group’s completion time at each checkpoint is measured when the flagstick is replaced in the hole once all players in the group have holed out.

Allotted Time – The “allotted time” is the maximum time allowed to complete play of the course or the holes between checkpoints. The allotted time is predetermined by the Tournament Committee and may be adjusted between rounds. Time for ball searches, rulings, and walking or travel time between holes is included in the allotted time. The allotted time for each course will be posted in a prominent location at the tournament site. Maximum Time to Complete Holes: Par 3 (14min), Par 4 (16min), and Par 5 (18min)

Rule 6-7. Undue Delay; Slow Play states: “The player must play without undue delay and in accordance with any pace of play guidelines that the Committee may establish. Between completion of a hole and playing from the next teeing ground, the player must not unduly delay play.”

SCORING & AWARDS
Once you have finished your round, your entire group must go directly to the scoring areas located inside the clubhouse. Make sure that your hole by hole scores are correct; you have 2 signatures and turn in your scorecard personally. Do not rely on someone else to turn it in for you. We strongly recommend you stay until your score has been posted on the scoreboard so that there are no questions regarding your score.

SPECTATOR POLICY
A guideline infraction should be brought to the attention of Junior Golf Championship staff member or JGC rules official immediately. If an infraction is observed, warned, penalized, and it persists the player is subject to disqualification and their spectators removed from the property in compliance with JGC Code of Conduct Policy.

Player Advisory Board - April 12, 2013Junior Golf Championships will establish a Player Advisory Board to better capture player perspectives and to maintain a high level of consistency. This Player Advisory Board will be headlined by our Year End Champions Kenzie Wright and Josh Radcliff. All Year End Champions will maintain a spot on the Player Advisory Board until graduation.

JGC Player Advisory Board Qualifications: (minimum)
JGC Past Champion
Academic Excellence
Charity and Community Supporter/Promoter
Sportsmanship Advocate

Junior Golf Championships reserves the right to invite and remove players from their Player Advisory Board. Players selected to the Player Advisory Board will be granted one year on the Player Advisory Board. A player may be invited to maintain a spot for additional calendar years. Each JGC Player Advisory Board member will not be given or granted special privileges. This Player Advisory Board is designed to help prepare all players for their next step in golf.

JGC has a significant following and being able to invite everyone is challenging. We want a wholistic view on junior golf not just the older divisions that currently get all the attention. If we include all age groups it allows us to help players develop at an earlier stage. Please send us your player(s) information if they meet our minimum requirements. We will review and keep them on file for future assignments.

We strongly encourage players to provide feedback regardless if they reside on the board. Everyone has an opinion and allowing the players to provide their feedback is something we encourage. Yes, all parents have opinions but this is designed to get the players involved in the dialog.

As always JGC would like to thank all our players and parents for their continued support. It won't be long and someone else will have to handle JGC as our kids are becoming junior players as well.

Justin Hogue

• The rankings will only count the oldest age division unless all players play from the same tees and the fields can be combined to create one event.

• Golfweek reserves the right to add and drop tournaments at any time.

Awards will be handed out for each age division as soon as all scores have been verified and posted and the order of finish has been determined for that age group.

JUNIOR CHAMPIONSHIP is 36 holes, stroke play, under USGA Rules, and Local Rules may be established by JGC.

TEE TIMES
Tee times will be posted on the “Results” page of our website by September 5th (8pm CST).

CADDIE/SPECTATOR CARTS
Caddies are mandatory for 8-9 Boys, 10-11 Boys, 8-9 Girls, and 10-12 Girls. Caddies are prohibited (not allowed) for Boys 12-13, Boys 14-18 and Girls 13-18.

Caddies are allowed to walk or ride in a cart. A player is allowed only one caddie at a time. Caddies are not to over coach (45sec per shot MAX) their player or disrupt the play of the group. Any caddie violating these rules will be given one warning. If they continue to violate the caddie rules/Pace of Play Rules, they will be removed as caddie for their player and not allowed to caddie for any player for the rest of the tournament.

A player is responsible for the caddie and any penalties given to the caddie will be assessed to his/her player. Pull Carts are allowed for all age divisions provided the course permits.

Caddies for players 11 years old or younger will be allowed to take a cart but players must walk during play. Carts are available on a first come, first serve basis and are not guaranteed. Spectator carts will be allowed based on availability. Any medical condition requiring a cart for play needs to be brought to the JGC staff immediately. Caddies may be asked to share a cart if another player in their group already has a cart.

Medical Condition: Any player, in any age division, may use a cart due to a valid medical condition(s). Please contact tournament staff for all medical questions.

SOFT SPIKES ARE REQUIRED FOR THE ENTIRE TOURNAMENT.

PACE OF PLAY
The JGC Pace of Play Policy utilizes a two checkpoint system.
Players will not receive warnings unless they are being monitored.
Each group is responsible for monitoring and maintaining their own pace

To avoid penalty, groups must complete each checkpoint hole:
1. Under the allotted time, or
2. Within 15 minutes of the group ahead.
Checkpoints will be on holes #9 and #18, unless otherwise indicated.
All players in a group in breach of the pace of play policy at any checkpoint are subject to penalty.

PENALTIES
First Breach of Round = 1 stroke penalty to each player in the group.
Second Breach of Round = additional 2 stroke penalty to each player in the group.

NOTIFICATION
Any group that completes a checkpoint hole in breach of the pace of play policy will be notified by an Official. Officials at checkpoints should never be confronted. (Please reference Code of Conduct)

It is the player’s responsibility to record and include any penalties assessed on their scorecards. Penalties are to be added to the checkpoint hole where the breach occurred. (usually holes #9 or #18)

POSITION
First Group(s) off Either Tee – The first group(s) will be in breach of the pace of play policy if they take more than the allotted time to finish a checkpoint hole until they reach (within 15 minutes) any group ahead. After they reach a group ahead, both conditions must be met to be in breach of the pace of play policy.

Position with Group Ahead – To stay within 15 minutes of the group ahead, players should never have an open hole and they should be in the fairway on par 4’s and 5’s when the group ahead leaves the green.

CONCERNED PLAYERS AND APPEALS
A player concerned about slow players in a group should first remind that player of the pace of play policy and encourage them to play more efficiently. The concerned player may, before or after penalties are assessed, request an Official to monitor the group.

Appeals for exceptional situations will be considered only in the scoring area after the completion of the round and prior to the return of a player’s scorecard.

DEFINITIONS
Timing – A group’s completion time at each checkpoint is measured when the flagstick is replaced in the hole once all players in the group have holed out.

Allotted Time – The “allotted time” is the maximum time allowed to complete play of the course or the holes between checkpoints. The allotted time is predetermined by the Tournament Committee and may be adjusted between rounds. Time for ball searches, rulings, and walking or travel time between holes is included in the allotted time. The allotted time for each course will be posted in a prominent location at the tournament site. Maximum Time to Complete Holes: Par 3 (13min), Par 4 (15min), and Par 5 (18min)

Rule 6-7. Undue Delay; Slow Play states: “The player must play without undue delay and in accordance with any pace of play guidelines that the Committee may establish. Between completion of a hole and playing from the next teeing ground, the player must not unduly delay play.”

SCORING & AWARDS
Once you have finished your round, your entire group must go directly to the scoring areas located inside the clubhouse. Make sure that your hole by hole scores are correct; you have 2 signatures and turn in your scorecard personally. Do not rely on someone else to turn it in for you. We strongly recommend you stay until your score has been posted on the scoreboard so that there are no questions regarding your score.

SPECTATOR POLICY
A guideline infraction should be brought to the attention of Junior Golf Championship staff member or JGC rules official immediately. If an infraction is observed, warned, penalized, and it persists the player is subject to disqualification and their spectators removed from the property in compliance with JGC Code of Conduct Policy. PLEASE see Spectator Policy in its entirety on our website NEWS page

LOCAL RULES & SCORECARDS
Each player will be given their scorecard and a Local Rule/Pin Sheet on the #1 tee. It is important that you are at your starting hole(s) 15 minutes before your tee time so that you don’t miss any important information. You should see the group in front of you hit their tee shots and help keep tee times on time.

SOFT SPIKES ARE REQUIRED FOR THE ENTIRE TOURNAMENT.

PACE OF PLAY
The JGC Pace of Play Policy utilizes a two checkpoint system.
Players will not receive warnings unless they are being monitored.
Each group is responsible for monitoring and maintaining their own pace

To avoid penalty, groups must complete each checkpoint hole:
1. Under the allotted time, or
2. Within 15 minutes of the group ahead.
Checkpoints will be on holes #9 and #18, unless otherwise indicated.
All players in a group in breach of the pace of play policy at any checkpoint are subject to penalty.

PENALTIES
First Breach of Round = 1 stroke penalty to each player in the group.
Second Breach of Round = additional 2 stroke penalty to each player in the group.

NOTIFICATION
Any group that completes a checkpoint hole in breach of the pace of play policy will be notified by an Official. Officials at checkpoints should never be confronted. (Please reference Code of Conduct)

It is the player’s responsibility to record and include any penalties assessed on their scorecards. Penalties are to be added to the checkpoint hole where the breach occurred. (usually holes #9 or #18)

POSITION
First Group(s) off Either Tee – The first group(s) will be in breach of the pace of play policy if they take more than the allotted time to finish a checkpoint hole until they reach (within 15 minutes) any group ahead. After they reach a group ahead, both conditions must be met to be in breach of the pace of play policy.

Position with Group Ahead – To stay within 15 minutes of the group ahead, players should never have an open hole and they should be in the fairway on par 4’s and 5’s when the group ahead leaves the green.

CONCERNED PLAYERS AND APPEALS
A player concerned about slow players in a group should first remind that player of the pace of play policy and encourage them to play more efficiently. The concerned player may, before or after penalties are assessed, request an Official to monitor the group.

Appeals for exceptional situations will be considered only in the scoring area after the completion of the round and prior to the return of a player’s scorecard.

DEFINITIONS
Timing – A group’s completion time at each checkpoint is measured when the flagstick is replaced in the hole once all players in the group have holed out.

Allotted Time – The “allotted time” is the maximum time allowed to complete play of the course or the holes between checkpoints. The allotted time is predetermined by the Tournament Committee and may be adjusted between rounds. Time for ball searches, rulings, and walking or travel time between holes is included in the allotted time. The allotted time for each course will be posted in a prominent location at the tournament site. Maximum Time to Complete Holes: Par 3 (13min), Par 4 (15min), and Par 5 (18min)

Rule 6-7. Undue Delay; Slow Play states: “The player must play without undue delay and in accordance with any pace of play guidelines that the Committee may establish. Between completion of a hole and playing from the next teeing ground, the player must not unduly delay play.”

SCORING & AWARDS
Once you have finished your round, your entire group must go directly to the scoring areas located inside the clubhouse. Make sure that your hole by hole scores are correct; you have 2 signatures and turn in your scorecard personally. Do not rely on someone else to turn it in for you. We strongly recommend you stay until your score has been posted on the scoreboard so that there are no questions regarding your score.

SPECTATOR POLICY
A guideline infraction should be brought to the attention of Junior Golf Championship staff member or JGC rules official immediately. If an infraction is observed, warned, penalized, and it persists the player is subject to disqualification and their spectators removed from the property in compliance with JGC Code of Conduct Policy.

COLORADO Junior Open - Post Event News - July 11, 2012The 1st Annual COLORADO Junior Open is completed and the trophies have been awarded. We could not have asked for a better start for this first year event. We had players from 6 different states and 2 countries in attendance. The golf course was pristine for both rounds of play and their service matched their playing conditions. Wow, was this an event to remember...we have never managed an event with that amount of inclement weather.

The first round was slammed with continuous storm cells approaching the property. We had one stop in play due to lightning and thunderstorms. We started back up only to notice another large cell about to enter the south east corner of the property. This would have delayed the event and keep us from completing the round. I would like to thank the Highlands Ranch GC staff, JGC Staff, and our players and parents for sticking it out and playing through the rain. That final storm changed directions within 30min and allowed the field enough time to complete their round. Round two was forecasted to be worse than day one. We dodged several storms during our final round and overall was a perfect day for golf.

COLORADO Junior Open presented by PGA TOUR Superstore crowned nine champions. The Boys 16-18 Division kept it close with the final pairing posting numerous birdies. It was Joshua Seiple from Castle Pines, Colorado, carding a first round tournament low 66 to take an early lead in the Boy Championship Division. Joshua held his first round lead and carded a two day total 66/74 140 for the Boys Overall Championship. Quade Mitchell from Highland Ranch, Colorado, kept the pressure on through both rounds with consistent play and second place honors for a two day total 71/72 143. Nick Miller also from Highlands Ranch, Colorado, rounded out the top three.

It was apparent after discussing the play of Girls Overall Champion Mackenzie Cohen from Centennial, Colorado, that her victory was an addition to her recent Colorado Class 5A State Championship. Danielle Urman wasn't to be outdone and tried to close the margin and force a playoff, but came up short in her efforts to capture runner up honors for a two day total 85/77 162. Alexandria Trask also from Colorado rounded out the top three in the Girls 15-18 Division.

We narrowly escaped a playoff in the rain on Sunday. With our final group finishing 20min prior to the thunderstorms hitting the property this group would have teed it up in the rain for their victor. It was two local favorites battling for bragging rights and the title. The first player to post was Chris Raap (aka Chicken Wing) from Highlands Ranch, Colorado, with a two day total 82/81 163. That left it up to Austin Hardman also from Highland Ranch, Colorado, to prove he could take down the Hawk! Austin was able to pull out the victory over Chris Rapp by carding a two day total 82/80 162 and avoid having to play in the rain for his Boys 14-15 Division victory. Alan (AJ) Berry posted the most improved final round score of 74 compared to his first round at his attempt to capture the crown and round out the top three.

The Girls 13-14 Division trophy was captured by Kacey Godwin from Denver, Colorado, with her two day total 88/91 179. It was a close race for second with Aryn McLaughlin and Caroline ODonnel battling down the wire in the final round. Aryn managed to pull away by two strokes over Caroline for runner up honors.

The Boys 12-13 Division had a repeat Champion in Andrew Proctor from Chandler, Arizona, carding a two day total 76/73 149 for his second JGC crown. Paying close attention to the lead and carding a two day total 80/79 150 was Milton, Georgia, player Andrew Lafferty who finished with runner up honors. Another local player Jackson Crist from Highlands, Ranch, Colorado, wore his emotions on his sleeve. He wanted to replicate his friends victories, but still turned in a respectable top three showing considering the rankings around these players.

The Girls 10-12 Division was also captured by a repeat JGC Champion. It was Hailey Jones from Dallas, Texas, carding a two day total 73/72 145 to take her Colorado Junior Open title back to Texas. The sisters were competing for bragging rights and continued to chip away at the lead. It was older sister Caroline Jordaan from Cherry Hills Village, Colorado, taking second place honors over sister Marie Jordaan. I would also like to thank Marie for her help with our event.

Boys 10-11 Division Champion was not to be outdone by older sister (Hailey). Hogan Jones from Dallas, Texas, captured his first JGC title and the Boys 10-11 Division Championship. Kyle Dow from Santa Fe, New Mexico, came up short in his attempt at the title, but vowed to be back again for another run at the trophy after his runner up finish.

Another potential playoff and a battle for the trophy took place in the Boys 8-9 Division. When their parents elaborated on their final round play and all agreed it was worth watching as no one would give ground. Brayden Bozak from Littleton, Colorado, crafted a two day total 84/73 157 for his Colorado Junior Open Championship. Ryan Sangchompuphen from Denver, Colorado, battled to the end and narrowly missed getting in a playoff and settled for second place honors after a two round total 80/79 159.

Girls 8-9 Division also witnessed a repeat Champion. Sierra Fink from Peachtree, Georgia, carded a two day total 93/92 185 for her Colorado Junior Open title and back to back JGC victories. Anju Ogi from Arvada, Colorado, carded a two day total 208 for her second place finish.

We would like to thank Highlands Ranch GC for their outstanding hospitality and great course conditions. We look forward to seeing everyone again and thank you for your support. We would also like to thank our partners for their continued support of junior golf.

Each group is responsible for monitoring and maintaining their own pace

To avoid penalty, groups must complete each checkpoint hole:
1. Under the allotted time, or

Checkpoints will be on holes #9 and #18, unless otherwise indicated.
All players in a group in breach of the pace of play policy at any checkpoint are subject to penalty.

Second Breach of Round = additional 2 stroke penalty to each player in the group.

NOTIFICATION
Any group that completes a checkpoint hole in breach of the pace of play policy will be notified by an Official. Officials at checkpoints should never be confronted. (Please reference Code of Conduct)

It is the player’s responsibility to record and include any penalties assessed on their scorecards. Penalties are to be added to the checkpoint hole where the breach occurred. (usually holes #9 or #18)

POSITION
First Group(s) off Either Tee – The first group(s) will be in breach of the pace of play policy if they take more than the allotted time to finish a checkpoint hole until they reach (within 15 minutes) any group ahead. After they reach a group ahead, both conditions must be met to be in breach of the pace of play policy.

Position with Group Ahead – To stay within 15 minutes of the group ahead, players should never have an open hole and they should be in the fairway on par 4’s and 5’s when the group ahead leaves the green.

CONCERNED PLAYERS AND APPEALS
A player concerned about slow players in a group should first remind that player of the pace of play policy and encourage them to play more efficiently. The concerned player may, before or after penalties are assessed, request an Official to monitor the group.

Appeals for exceptional situations will be considered only in the scoring area after the completion of the round and prior to the return of a player’s scorecard.

DEFINITIONS
Timing – A group’s completion time at each checkpoint is measured when the flagstick is replaced in the hole once all players in the group have holed out.

Allotted Time – The “allotted time” is the maximum time allowed to complete play of the course or the holes between checkpoints. The allotted time is predetermined by the Tournament Committee and may be adjusted between rounds. Time for ball searches, rulings, and walking or travel time between holes is included in the allotted time. The allotted time for each course will be posted in a prominent location at the tournament site. Maximum Time to Complete Holes: Par 3 (13min), Par 4 (15min), and Par 5 (18min)

Rule 6-7. Undue Delay; Slow Play states: “The player must play without undue delay and in accordance with any pace of play guidelines that the Committee may establish. Between completion of a hole and playing from the next teeing ground, the player must not unduly delay play.”

SCORING & AWARDS
Once you have finished your round, your entire group must go directly to the scoring areas located inside the clubhouse. Make sure that your hole by hole scores are correct; you have 2 signatures and turn in your scorecard personally. Do not rely on someone else to turn it in for you. We strongly recommend you stay until your score has been posted on the scoreboard so that there are no questions regarding your score.

SPECTATOR POLICY
A guideline infraction should be brought to the attention of Junior Golf Championship staff member or JGC rules official immediately. If an infraction is observed, warned, penalized, and it persists the player is subject to disqualification and their spectators removed from the property in compliance with JGC Code of Conduct Policy. PLEASE see Spectator Policy in its entirety on our website NEWS page

LONE STAR Junior Championship - Post Event News - June 1, 2012The 5th Annual LONE STAR Junior Championship is completed and the awards are handed out. We could not have asked for a better turnout to this event which has been hosted at the Tribute since 2008. One thing didn't change...the wind. With players attending from 7 different states, it turned out to be a very exciting weekend. We look forward to our next event the JUNIOR OPEN Championship June 16-17th at the Tribute GC.

LONE STAR Junior Championship presented by PGA TOUR Superstore crowned ten champions. It's always a great event when a player experiences a hole in one for the first time. We would like to recognize Jensen Rogenes for his first ever hole in one during our event.

We will release our new Spectator Policy later this weekend. We try to improve off each event and our spectator policy was a glaring sign it needed to be addressed. We have other details to address and we appreciate your feedback. We will also double check each contract to ensure range balls are included. We apologize for this being missed during our discussions. This was our first event since 2008 where the range balls were not included.

The Boys 16-18 and Overall Boys (14-18) Champion was captured by Zach Partin from Lewisville, Texas, shooting a consistent 73/76 for a two day total 149. The course was very challenging and did not relinquish low numbers. This was one of our most challenging events with sustained 20-30mph winds and the very firm and fast greens (US OPEN style).

It was the solid play from Megan Thothong from Dallas, Texas, claiming the Girls 15-18 and Over Girls (13-18) Championships by posting 76/80 two day total 156. We look forward to our champions competing in the Optimist International Championship after their LONE STAR Junior Championship victories.

It was Dustin Hasley from Yukon, Oklahoma, claiming the Boys 14-15 title. The Girls 13-14 Championship was a battle between past JGC Champions with repeat winner Kenze Wright holding off a strong charge with a two day total 168.

Austin Eckroat was the second Oklahoma player to capturing a title and take it back across the Red River. Austin posted a two day total 152 for the Boys 12-13 Championship. Kaylee Vesely from Austin, Texas, completed the Red River Rivalry by taking their 10-12 Girls Championship trophy back to Longhorn Nation.

Rondarius Walters from Grand Prairie, Texas, a repeat JGC Champion captured the Boys 10-11 Championship by holding off a strong field and posting a two day total 150.

The Boys 8-9 Division let the final round decide their Champion. It was a past champions keeping it close but the Vo brothers (Evan and Keaton) kept their cool and made the most of their final round. Evan Vo from Austin, Texas, was happy to hold off a talented field to capture the Boys 8-9 Championship.

It was Sky Sudberry from Houston, Texas, winning the Girls 8-9 Division crown. She is also the youngest player in the field.

We would like to thank all our players and families for their continued support and we look forward to seeing everyone again. Congratulations to our Champions!

Regards,
Junior Golf Championships

LONE STAR - Pairings/Tee Times and Event Reminders - May 22, 2012Tee times and pairings are posted on our RESULTS page. Everything pertaining to this event has been listed on our NEWS page. The below information is very important to a successful/safe event.

JGC would like to remind everyone about the forecasted weather this weekend. It should stay consistently around 90+ degrees each day. Therefore, please bring enough hydration, sun screen, bug spray, and any sun protection items. We will provide water on both starting holes and after that we are not allowed to have anything on the course.

We would also like to remind everyone about being to your starting hole 10min prior to your scheduled tee time. At that time your starter will cover our tournament details, local rules, provide your rules/pin sheet, and your scorecard for your round. Scores will be posted online after your round. Second round tee times/pairings will be uploaded online 2hrs after the last group(s) are completed.

With nine years of historical data we have a trend with our pace of play and our day one rounds slightly longer than our final rounds. We will monitor every group not in position. Please make sure everyone does their absolute best to improve your pace of play as a player and a group.

If someone in the group is having a tough hole just understand that extended time needs to be made up somewhere. All the little thing add up over 18 holes. We encourage everyone to understand your on the clock once you hit your first tee shot.

Have the player that holes their putt first to leave and head to the next tee box and repeat 18times and the last player replaces the flag. The travel between shots needs to be your highest priority to improve time.

Thank you for your attention to these details and we look forward to seeing everyone this weekend.

JUNIOR MASTERS - Post Event News - April 5, 2012The 2012 Junior Golf Championships is off and running. The 2nd Annual JUNIOR MASTERS is completed and the Green Jackets are awarded. We could not have asked for a better start to the season with players attending from 12 different states.

JUNIOR MASTERS presented by PGA TOUR Superstore crowned ten JUNIOR MASTERS Champions. The Girls 14-15 Division was decided by a sudden death playoff. Emily Uhland and last year's JUNIOR MASTERS Champion Megan Sabol battled for the Green Jacket. Emily sank a long putt on the second playoff hole to capture her first Green Jacket. That gave her brothers something to admire on the ride home to Florida.

Boys 16-18 Division kept it close with the final pairing posting numerous birdies. It was Brandon Price from Georgia posting a two day total 150 for his Green Jacket. The FROG Golf Club was perfect for our Junior Masters…it played long with steep elevation and firm/fast greens. That was a perfect recipe to replicate the MASTERS!

It was apparent after viewing Steven Fisk's final round scorecard he would be our Boys 14-15 Champion. Steven is local to Georgia and made short work of the challenging greens. Steven maintained his first round lead to capture his Green Jacket and the overall Boys Championship (14-18) with a two day total 147.

Sabrina Rumbaugh from Florida carded back to back 79s for a two day total 158 for her first Green Jacket. Her consistent play allowed her to capture the overall Girls Championship.

Jacob Bayer with back to back 77s closed out the competition for a two day total 154 and his first Green Jacket. Abigail Bolt claimed the Girls 12-13 Division Championship. Abigail was a returning player from our 2011 Junior Masters. She used the experience to her advantage for a two day total 171 and took home her first Green Jacket.

The Boys 10-11 Division was captured by local favorite Tyler Lipscomb. Tyler broke his arm prior to our 2011 Junior Masters and watched from the sidelines. He wasn't going to let the title leave the state. Tyler claimed his first Green Jacket with a two day total 153. The Girls 10-11 Division produced fierce competition for the weekend. We had six past Champions playing within the division and our girls were ready to compete for the Green Jacket. Brittany Shin from Naples, Florida fired a two day total 162 to hold off a strong field for her first Green Jacket.

The Boys 8-9 Division was decided by the narrowest of margins. Walter Ghaffar from North Carolina, held off Kevin Smith from Pennsylvania for a two day total 157 and his first Green Jacket. The Girls 8-9 Division was captured by one of the most talented young players in the country. Alexa Pano from Florida was able to win her first Green Jacket with a two day total 156.

We look forward to seeing everyone again and thank you for your support. We would also like to thank our partners for their support.

Blank, retired Home Depot co-founder and owner of the Atlanta Falcons.

“Our goal is to build relationships with our customers by providing a great customer experience in an
inviting environment, and we are happy to have the opportunity to do so in the Chicago community,”
Blank noted. “Customers entering our store will find knowledgeable associates ready to help them
with their needs.”
