Shintani Wins Carolina Summer Classic by 15 Strokes

Haruka Shintani of Setagaya, Japan, used scores of 74-73 to finish the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour’s Carolina Summer Classic with a 1-over 147 tournament total and win the Girls Division by 15 strokes! The two-day, 36-hole event was contested at Highland Creek Golf Club in Charlotte, N.C. on July 5-6, 2015.

Shintani used three birdies to finish the first round with a 2-over 74, good enough to lead the Girls Division heading into the final round. In the second round she had a division-best nine-hole par-or-better streak, which came on holes No. 5 through 13. She birdied the par-5 18th hole to finish the second round with a 1-over 73. Shintani found particular success on Highland Creek’s four par-5s, all of which she made par or better on in both rounds. She finished the tournament with a division-best 4.8 average on par-5s.

Yuna Sato of Koriyama, Japan, knocked seven strokes off her round one 87 to card an 80 in round two, good for a 167 tournament total and sole possession of fourth place.

Betty Horaney of Longview, Texas, finished in sixth place. She tied for most birdies in the Girls Division with four.

Congratulations to Haruka, Yuna and Betty on a great tournament! Next week, IJGA students will be competing in the AJGA’s E-Z-GO Vaughn Taylor Championship at Jones Creek Golf Club in Evans, Ga., the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour’s Coastal Carolina Junior Challenge at Haig Point on Daufuskie Island, S.C., and the IMG Academy Junior World Golf Championships at Torrey Pines Golf Course in La Jolla, Calif.
