Horne advanced to a playoff after each posted a tournament total of 5-under par 211. Graham, the 2004 and 2005 Boys’ Junior Champion of the 13-15 age division, led after the second round with scores of 71-70. Graham then blasted another 70 in the final round to put him in the playoff versus Horne. Horne, 18, from Ormond Beach, fired a 3-under par 69 in the final round and combined with his first two scores of 70-72 put him in contention.

Florida Junior Tour

Walt Disney World Resort

November 25-27, 2005

UPDATE: September 28, 2005

As you know this will be the tour’s only 54 hole (major) event this season and therefore draws tremendous interest. Based on current requests we anticipate well over 170 entries for a field of 78 players (boys and girls).

We know that not everyone is going to have an opportunity to play this year but we wanted you to know we are already working to obtain a second course in 2006 and players whose entry is not processed will receive priority status at a future event.

For purposes of FJT points and awards the field will be divided as in the past:

  1. Boys Divisions are 13-15 & 16-18
  1. Girls Divisions are 13-15 & 16-18
  1. FJT points will be awarded in accordance with the published points list
  1. Crystal will be awarded to the top 3 finishers and ties in each of the 4 divisions


Earlier this month we obtained Golfweek/Titleist ranking for all 16-18 Division events (8) and also the AJGA has recognized this event as a major and increased the number of exemptions they will award.

In order to give ALL players the opportunity to earn National Recognition and earn AJGA exemptions the following procedural changes have been made:

  1. The field size will increase from 78 to 84 total players.
  1. The field will be selected in proportion to the number of players that enter by age and gender.
  1. ALL boys will play from one yardage, approximately 6850 - 6950 yards.
  1. ALL girls will play from one yardage, approximately 5950 – 6050 yards
  1. ALL boys and girls will compete for their respective AJGA exemptions and performance stars listed below.


Overall Champ - 2 Exemptions

Overall Top 5 - 1 Exemption

Overall Top 10 - 1 Performance Star


Overall Champ - 2 Exemptions

Overall Top 3 - 1 Exemption

Overall Top 5 - 1 Performance Star

  1. Results will be forwarded to Golfweek/Titleist, Junior Golf Scoreboard and the AJGA.

NOTE: For those 13-15‘s that have earned the right to play up you will not have to declare that you wish to play up just to obtain Golfweek/Titleist ranking or AJGA exemptions. You may choose to play up only if you want to obtain FJT points in the 16-18 division.

  1. In addition to the crystal trophy in each division, the overall Boys and Girls Champion will receive a FJT wind shirt.

We will begin entering those players who have earned full exempt status and have 2 or more unused exemptions as of Oct 3rd so you may plan your Thanksgiving weekend accordingly. Likewise we will notify players who will not make the field as soon as possible so may enter other events.

As the FJT membership grows, the Staff must consider changes to our policies and procedures for the betterment of the members. Your comments or concerns are important to us and we look forward to seeing you at future events.
