Jack Turner, IJGA student golfer

Continuing his hot streak, IJGA’s Jack Turner, scorched the Black Course at Streamsong Resort to capture the Florida State Golf Association’s 13-15 Division of the 66th Boys’ Junior Amateur Championship on Monday, July 13th. Turner fired a 12-under 207 to capture an 11-shot victory and his first FSGA championship.

Posting three rounds in the red, Turner saved his best for last. He started the final round with a four-stroke lead and extended it throughout the day. His final-round 67 was the low round of the championship.

Turner said. “I’ve been playing well over the last few tournaments, so to finally come out on top means a lot.”

In an interview with FSGA, Turner said, “My putting was definitely the strongest part of my game, especially on these greens,” Turner said. “You can hit a lot of greens out here and still shoot over-par. My speed control and my short putts were really solid this week. I think that is what helped me get the win.”

Turner’s 11-shot victory is the largest margin of victory in the 13-15 Division in FSGA history. For full results of the championship, click here.
