IJGA students compete in AJGA Preseason Junior

The Spring Season of the American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) officially started on March 28-29 with four events across the country. Seven IJGA students made their AJGA tournament debuts at the AJGA’s Preseason Junior at North Hampton. Less than two hours from IJGA’s training facility, the Golf Club of North Hampton, proved to be a tough test for the 84 juniors competing in the event. Winds of over 15 mph each day put an emphasis on controlling ball flight and the player’s short game.

The Preseason Junior at North Hampton presented by the City of Jacksonville is one of 13 events held as part of the AJGA Preseason Series. The Preseason Series is designed specifically for AJGA members who have not yet been accepted to an AJGA tournament. This series offers these members the opportunity to start building Performance Based Entry status before application deadlines arrive for summer Open and Junior All-Star series events.

Guodong Ji of Qingdao, China, played well in his first AJGA tournament carding a 82-74 for a 10th-place finish. In the first round, Ji was 4-over-par through 15 holes, but closed his round with two triple bogeys. He was not discouraged heading into the final round, where the IJGA junior shot an impressive 2-over-par 74 despite having three penalty strokes.  Ji’s 10th-place finish earned him four AJGA Performance Stars, which will help him compete in more AJGA tournaments over the summer while training at IJGA.

Shiso Go of Kanagawa, Japan, also competed in the tournament finishing with a tournament total of 160. Another IJGA student, Piyachad Yusabai of Chonburi, Thailand, shot a 161 in his first AJGA tournament. Both Go and Yusabai earned one AJGA Performance Star for their finishes.
