Maxwell Moldovan & USGA JR. AM

This is pretty cool stuff if you haven’t seen it!

Former NCJT superstar, Maxwell Moldovan is the cover photo of the USGA US Junior Am Qualifier page. It’s pretty rare to see a former player as a headline photo, so we thought it would be worth sharing. Congrats to Maxwell as he continues to build on his amazing golf career. He is currently at Ohio State University and his profile page covers many of his major golf accomplishments.

Jason Kokrak – 1st Win on Tour!

Kokrak is a former NCJT player and a NCJT Hall of Famer

Jason Kokrak won the CJ Cup against the world’s top players on Sunday, October 18, 2020. He birdied the 18th hole to beat Xander Schauffele by 2 strokes. This big win was Jason’s 1st on the PGA Tour and earned him an invite to The Masters. Jason played 4 years on NCJT and won the NCJT Tour Championship in 2001. Jason has been on tour for 10 years and has been close to winning several times, but now that he has cracked into the winner’s circle he may become a dominate figure on tour for many years to come. Congratulations Jason! The junior tour is very proud of you!

NCJT – Tour Championship

Round 1 – 7/27/2020 – Quail Hollow CC – Par 71, 6354 Yards
Round 2 – 7/28/2020 – Quail Hollow CC – Par 71, 6303 Yard
s

William Fankhauser wins the 36-Hole NCJT Tour Championship in the Boys 16-19 Division with rounds of 70-80–150. Round 1 was played on the Weiskopf Course and William took a four-stroke lead with a 32-38–70. He had 4 birdies and an eagle in his first round. Round 2 was played on the Devlin Course and things got interesting when William went double, triple, double over holes 6, 7 & 8 and ended his first nine with 44 strokes. This allowed Dominik Cosic to take a one stroke lead to the final nine holes. On the final nine William played strong and was one under through the first five holes. Dominik played the first five on the back nine in 4 over, that included an OB triple bogey on #13, to drop 4 back. But it was over yet, on holes 15 & 16, William went 3 over with an OB on the par 3 #15 and the lead was back to one stroke with two holes to play. On #17 Dominik had a bogey to drop two back and on the final hole William made a smart play on his second shot to hole high in the center of the green as Dominik ended up just short of the green. Dominik needed a chip-in and a three putt from William to pull off the comeback and he almost got the chip-in with a great chip to less than a foot, but William ended it in style by rolling in his 12 foot birdie putt to finish with a three stroke victory.

Dominik Cosic finished 2nd place with a 74-79–153. Thomas Coyne finished 3rd place with rounds of 77-78–155.
