NFJG 2-Day Deercreek Tournament

Another NFJG tournament completed - two days at Deercreek, one of the toughest golf courses. The first nine holes has four hazard/water carry holes. Alyzabeth did get into the water on two holes each day, so her score was impacted alot. She had some great holes and is competitive; can't wait until she can carry some of the hazards from the ladies tees. The Foundation Girls group had two girls, so it was fun to play with Tylar again and to meet her Mom! Great family to hang out with and hope we can get the girls together for some practice rounds.

There was a threat of rain, so the umbrella went up for a few minutes, thanks to Tylar for sharing!
Reminding them to drink! Since it is not hot, everyone forgets to keep hydrated.
Funny girl!
Nice walks between holes. This one is going to the 9th Hole green; AA hit the bulkhead, so her ball went in the water; she had plenty of club speed, just too low!
The End! Back to the Club House for pizza!
Scoring table:
 Winner Tylar W.
From NFJG Jack Aschenbach:
FOUNDATION BOYS - Jack Roberts was all smiles as he earned and took home the Presidents Day Invitational Champions trophy beating some pretty talented young players in Phillip Dunham, Carson Brewer and Rocket Dekalskyy.  Three birdies in the 18- hole competition was enough to seal the deal for Roberts as he claimed his second Junior Players Tour event of the year.  After round one, Roberts took home a two stroke advantage over seven time champion Dunham, with Brewer just one stroke back of Dunham.  Round two would find Roberts not willing to make any mistakes, until the 18th.  Now at one under par for the day going into the final hole with a six stroke lead on the field Roberts would hit an errant shot, but at no cost to the championship.
Our Girls Foundation contest only had two players in the field this week, but Tylar Ann Whiting and Alyzabeth Morgan battled it out for 18 holes. With a birdie on the par- 4 fourth Whiting would take the advantage and cruise to victory circle winning for the third straight time.  Morgan
is a two time champion and the current Player of the Year Points leader who holds a slight lead over Kaitlyn Schroeder. Climbing the ladder is our newest talent Tylar Ann Whiting.  It should be exciting to the finish!

Next tournament in two weeks. Chinese New Year with our FCFCC group is next Sunday.
