The IJGT kicked off the Summer Series in the southeast at Crescent Pointe Golf Club on June 17-18, 2014. The first event of the summer schedule featured a field of 11 juniors ranging in age from 15-18 years old for the two-day, 36-hole event, competing for national rankings.

DSC_0790The Boys 15-19 Division was won by Kanoon Bunthanawong of Chonburi, Thailand. Finishing with scores of 74-78–152, Bunthanawong lead the tournament field throughout the weekend, looking confident around the golf course. His first win of his IJGT career was highlighted by a nine-hole par streak, making 14 total pars during his final round to accompany a birdie on his opening hole, par-4 No. 1.

Sidhartha Sharathram of Coimbatore, India, finished in second place with scores of 79-78—157, carding six consecutive pars on his back-nine during the final round. Kanawut Uenghiranpaisan of Bangkok, Thailand, finished in third place with scores of 83-75—158. Uenghiranpaisan improved on his round-one scores on 11 of 18 holes during his final round. With five birdies and seven pars, Uenghiranpaisan earned him the Clazic Belt Low Final Round Award, the award offered to the player who shoots the lowest score during the final round.

DSC_0620The word of the tournament was consistency for Mind Puangcharoen of Chonburi, Thailand, who took home the first place finish in the Girls Division, as well as her first IJGT victory. With a tournament total of 75-75—150, Puangcharoen carded her best ever nine-hole score, posting a 35 on her first round front-nine. She also finished par or better on 13 holes during her final round. Her final round 4-over-par 75 earned her the Clazic Belt Low Final Round Award for the Girls Division.
