Players of the Month
April Players of the Month
The month of April featured some of the strongest fields of the year for the HJGT. These fields yielded some of the most impressive rounds of golf from all four of our divisions. The players with the four lowest rounds of golf throughout the month will all be awarded the NYX Player of the month. This year the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour has partnered with NYX Sunglasses who will provide one free pair of sunglasses to each of our four winners. The sunglasses that the players will receive range in retail price from $35 to $79. NYX is one of the premier sunglass providers in the country and you can see all of their options at their website which is listed here. Congratulations to all of our NYX April Players of the Month.
The NYX player of the month for the boy’s 15-18 division is Tony Jiang of Lake Mary, FL. Jiang shot an 8-under par at the Orange Lake Junior Open in Kissimmee, FL. Jiang’s incredible score was the lowest that we have seen at an HJGT event this season. Jiang was an incredible six-under after day one which included a 30 on the front nine. Jiang had a total of ten birdies over the weekend. Jiang needed every one of the birdies with Brett Beazant charging hard for first place before finishing in second place at 3-under for the tournament. Jiang was most impressive on par fours where his 3.68 average was almost a quarter of a stroke better than any other competitor.
Isidora Quevedo of Chile is the girl’s 15-18 division NYX player of the month for April. Quevedo was impressive at the Major Championship at Jekyll which was perhaps the most competitive event of the year thus far for the HJGT. Quevedo shot an even par for the tournament which included a three-under par 69 on day one. Quevedo had the second most birdies in her division with six and had the third most pars with 24. Quevedo had a top four scoring average on par threes, fours, and fives including a 3.95 average on par fours which was the best in the division.
The boy’s 11-14 division NYX Player of the Month for April is David Giandomenico of Boynton Beach, FL. Giandomenico shot a one-under par at the IMG CC JR Classic. The IMG CC JR Classic was the largest event of the season with over 120 players competing. Giandomenico’s great tournament featured a very consistent two days with a 71 on day one and a 72 on day two. Giandomenico shot nothing but pars on the front side over the two days and had three birdies and two bogeys on the back nine. Giandomenico’s 31 pars led the division and were the most among the four divisions. Giandomenico was extremely consistent on all holes which was shown by the fact that he had the best scoring average on par threes, fours, and fives.
Rachel Liu of Kissimmee, FL is the girl’s 11-14 division NYX Player of the Month for April. Like our boy’s 15-18 player of the month, Tony Jiang, Liu’s great weekend came at the Orange Lake Junior Open. Liu shot a one-under for the tournament which included an even par 71 on day one and a one-under par 70 on day two. Liu led the field in both birdies and pars with seven and 23, respectively. Liu had the best scoring average on both par fours and par fives.
