I am thankful that my schedule has been busy but that means I get behind on recognizing my junior students who have been playing golf competitively this season. This is long overdue, I am proud of each of them for getting out to play golf. It is my honor to coach them!!
Sara is probably my busiest junior competing in tournaments hosted by the South Florida PGA Junior Section, Under Armour and U.S. Kids. She is 8 years old but she is competing in the 9-11 age division. Recently she took second place at Banyan Cay Resort and Golf with a score of 44 and at Country Club of Miami with a score of 46. She is currently in fifth place overall in the U.S. Kids West Palm Beach Local Tour.
Mateo is competing in tournaments hosted by the South Florida PGA Junior Section and Under Armour this season. He is 9 years old, competing in the 9-11 age division. He recently placed third with a 41 at Jensen Beach Golf Club and has three second place finishes in the South Florida PGA Junior Section: shooting 41and 42 at Banyan Cay Resort and Golf on separate occasions and 41 at Country Club of Miami.
Thomas is 13 and he enjoys competing in U.S. Kids 18 hole tournaments. He competes in the 13-14 age division and recently placed first at The Saints Golf Course with a score of 74. He is currently in fourth place overall in the U.S. Kids West Palm Beach Local tour. This is incredible considering Thomas had a rough start to the season and had to recover from surgery.
David is 14 and he is competing in tournaments hosted by the South Florida PGA Junior Section and Under Armour in the 12-14 age division. Since this is his first year playing competitive golf he is playing 9 hole tournaments with hopes of moving up to 18 very soon. So far, David has a first place finish at Country Club of Miami with a 39, three second place finishes and two third place finishes.
