TD Comments- Foxchase Golf Course
I have now finished my first regular season as the Tournament Director for the LCJGT. While I would never claim to do the job better than Skip did, I will say that Skip never led the tour through a season of such great golf weather! I’m going to claim that as a win.
We had gone all season without any playoffs, but we needed two to decide champions on Wednesday. The 18th hole provided a great venue to allow spectators to watch. In the Boys’ Gold Division, Nicholas Fioravante won the playoff on the fourth hole over Graham Calhoun. Both players finished their rounds with scores of 73 to force the playoff. The Boys’ Silver Division required the other playoff. Jack Malandra topped Emmett Kappesser with a par on the first playoff hole after both shot 80 for the day.
The Girls’ Gold Division had a new winner as Erica Corey earned her first victory of the season with an 86. Phoebe Stover was also a first-time winner in the Girls’ Silver Division with a score of 93. Jesse Shue continued his great play this season by winning the Boys’ Bronze Division at 85. Dylan Ramsey won the Futures’ Division again with a nine-hole score of 41. Ethan Rader finished the day in second place at 46.
We were able to award the Points Champions Trophies for the Girls’ Silver, Boys’ Bronze, and Futures’ Division. Our winners were: Keegan Dings (Girls’ Silver), Jesse Shue (Boys’ Bronze), Dylan Ramsey (Boys’ Futures), and Tristan Groff (Girls’ Future).
Tour Championship: Friday, July 27 is our Tour Championship at Lancaster Country Club. We are excited at the opportunity to hold this at LCC and are hoping to make this the yearly location for the Championship. If you have qualified for the event, you will be entered into the field, and we plan to get you important information by the end of the day on Thursday, July 19. If you haven’t qualified, we would still love to have spectators at the event.
TC Attire: Players please remember our dress code. We get so many positive comments from “outsiders” about how our juniors dress, act, treat the course, etc. This is another opportunity to demonstrate what we are about. Spectators, please make sure that you are also meeting the LCJGT dress code as we are holding this at LCC where there is an enforced dress code.
“Big C” Scholarship: We will be announcing the “Big C” Scholarship winners during our awards presentation at the Tour Championship. We had many great applicants, and the committee is pleased to be able to go from only one scholarship winner last year (Allison Appleton) to FIVE for this year. I personally want to thank everyone who has helped raise money or has played in the “Big C” Tournament in the fall. I am so honored, and my dad would be so pleased to be able to help these former LCJGT members.
“Big C” Tournament: Just a reminder to start thinking about registering for the “Big C” Tournament on Saturday, September 22. Because my dad and I really enjoyed getting to play golf together, the format of the event is designed in that same manner. Although you can, teams don’t need to be parent/child. Instead we ask that there be at least a ten-year age difference between partners. It is a great day and a great opportunity to support the scholarship fund. I hope you can join us.
