After a long weekend of competition filled with thunderstorms and suspended play, Jack McDevitt and Ariana Macioce have claimed their titles as the winners of the Boys and Girls divisions, respectively, of the 20th annual Thunderbird Invitational last weekend at Papago GC. Both McDevitt and Macioce were first round leaders and were able to hold their leads, both players winning by 2 strokes. Thank you to the tournament's title sponsor, The Thunderbirds, for all they do for the JGAA and junior golf. The JGAA would also like to thank the Thunderbirds who volunteered their time last weekend in addition to the Papago GC staff for all their help and cooperation during the inclement weather. We couldn't have done it without all of you!

The JGAA now has its Rules Clinic schedule posted and available for registration. The 2014 JGAA Rules Clinics are mandatory for all members in all age groups who intend to play in any JGAA Summer events (i.e. Any event after June 3, 2014). Please do not procrastinate in registering for rules clinics, as there are only a limited number of clinics available. The schedule of location and time of the rules clinics may be found here.
JGAA members will also be required to take and pass an online Rules Quiz before they will be allowed to participate in any JGAA Summer events. Rules quizzes will not be given at the rules clinics. Quizzes may only be taken and graded online. The rules clinic and quiz must be completed and passed prior to June 3, 2014. Failure to pass the quiz with an acceptable score will prevent you from participating in any JGAA tournaments.
