Aaron Chang, 11, passed the requirement to graduate to the SCPGAJR Tour by scoring +7 (38) at the JDL @ River View Golf Club on May 13, 2012. To graduate from the Junior Developmental Tour, a player must score equal to or less than a specified score that is established by the SCPGA Junior Tour. In most cases this number is +8 over par. A player must pass this standard three times before moving to the Junior Tour. Aaron will now join his sister, Felicia on the Junior Tour.
Noah Lee, 12, from Los Angeles shot +5 (36) to pass the JDL requirement in his first JDL Tournament. Noah’s brother, Nicholas, 10, shot +8, to all pass in his first event. Noah and Nick are ranked in the top ten in hockey in their age group. The two brother’s have spent considerable time playing hockey and training in Detroit. They recently have turned to golf to see if their hockey skills can translate into success on the golf course.
Max Mylett and Julian Tran also competed at River View in the 11 and under age group.
Congratulation’s to all of the player’s that are competing on the JDL Tour.
In the JDL Girls 12 and over, Elizabeth Fung, West Covina, CA, shot +4 (35) to finish in second place and pass the standard set by the SCPGA. This was Elizabeth’s first JDL event.
In the JDL Girls 11 and under, Elyse Kim, 9 shot +11 (42) and is show rapid improvement in “playing” the game. The youngster from Los Angeles is technically sound in her swing but need’s more experience playing the game.
