It was a perfect weekend for golf and the juniors proved that they absolutely love Stone Creek Golf Club as we saw a total on 437 birdies over the two days. Brendan Valdes held the round one lead with an opening round of 67, but the leader board was tightly compacted as the top 23 players we all under par. As the sun rose on the morning of the final round, the competitors knew it would take something low to capture the title. Two golfers would come in with a tournament low 65 and finish first and second. Drew Angelo fired a 71-65--136, but it was one shot shy of our champion, Roberto Nieves whose spectacular 70-65--135 was the best of the best for the weekend. Jordan Sarhaddi dialed up rounds of 68-69 to finish in third.
This is Roberto's first FJT win and he is looking forward to carrying the momentum forward as the season progresses.
