Greetings from the NFJG Foundation and NFJG TOUR
Hey there NFJG Foundation Members, NFJG TOUR Players, Partners, Sponsors and Friends. I hope this email finds you well.

For the June Newsletter I'm happy to announce we are finally getting back to some sort of normalcy. Thanks to your great support and action the NFJG Foundation took the lead in getting us and others back out there and on track with our junior golf program. I can't thank you enough for showcasing how competitive junior golf can be played safely with certain restrictions in place during these trying times. Our 29-point policy is being shared with many, so they too can rekindle their golf programs.

I have to admit, golf is a little more serious now since the start of the pandemic. Players (adult and junior) don't socialize as much. They get to the tee and then head directly to their ball for the next shot. They get to the green, putt out and head to the next tee box. The NFJG TOUR has had three events since our restart on May 10th and every event (with 100+ players) has concluded in a four hours and five minutes pace of play or less. That is incredible! Let's keep rocking it!

I'd like to give another shout to Garry Smits of the Jacksonville Times Union for spreading the word - " Reopening Northeast Florida"

There's still a lot f golf left, so check it out and get signed up early!
TYLER MAWHINNEY READY TO DEFEND HIS TITLE AT THE
DR. GORDON IRA GOLF CLASSIC
Fleming Islands Tyler Mawhinney "ROCKED" the NFJG TOUR last season at the Hyde Park Golf Club becoming the first player in the Boys 10-12 Division to win the "Overall Award". Mawhinney shot 2-under par (70-70) to nip Ponte Vedra's Jackson Klauk by two strokes. He is set to defend, but this time he is in the Boys 13-18 Division.

NORTH FLORIDA PGA JUNIOR CHAMPIONSHIP
This year the Royal St. Cloud Golf Links is hosting the North Florida Section of the PGA "J unior PGA Championship". Numerous NFJG TOUR players, through their outstanding play at previous events have qualified for and received fully paid exemptions and lodging expenses to represent our tour at this great event. In the field are Moses Compaan, Adam Vermut, Campbell Kennedy, Carson Brewer, Lisa Colee and Annabelle Mozingo plus many others.

Because of the Coronavirus interruption no qualifying events have taken place and players are able to registered on a first-come, first serve basis. Don't wait too long as field is nearing full capacity.

Good Luck!
TORI MOUTON READY TO DEFEND JAGA WOMEN'S AMATEUR
Tori Mouton dominated the JAGA First Coast Women's Amateur in 2019 and is set to defend the title.

Last season with the goal of getting more players in the field only a handful of NFJGTOUR Girls played in the event, but this year the word has spread and 17 juniors vie for the championship including four players from the NFJG TOUR receiving fully paid exemptions which include Lisa Colee, Ashley Huffman, Elizabeth Kondal and Alyzabeth Morgan.

The field is 78 players strong!

Good Luck Ladies!

BREWER SWEEPS TITLEIST INVITATIONAL
Jacksonville's Carson Brewer swept up birdie after birdie on his way to adding the 2020 Titleist Invitational title to his resume. Brewer, who took top honors at the " First Coast Junior Amateur" a few months back came charging hard in his final nine holes of play to catch and pass the leaders. Brewer birdied four holes on his closing nine with a TURKEY at the 15th, 16th & 17th holes to oust the "2020 Match Play Champion" Campbell Kennedy by two strokes.

Collegiate Champion Andrew Farraye (left) from Purdue University is presented the champion's trophy by his brother Nicholas Farraye. Andrew also won the "St. Johns Open" at WGV Slammer and Squire for back-to-back wins.
Collegiate Division
During the month of May we added another division to our NFJG Foundation's golf program. The " Collegiate Division " gives our local players and others the opportunity to keep their games sharp while home and in the area. With the colleges closed and the golf teams idle it doesn't take long to pile on the rust, said Cody Carroll.

Collegian's will compete within their own division and will never challenge for any junior award. They've already been there, done that, got the t-shirt, sort of speak.

Thirteen out of the 15 registered players are NFJG TOUR Alumni. Many thanks to Collegiate TOUR Advisory Committee Members Cody Carroll and Jason Duff for this great idea.

The “ Florida Coast Junior Ryder Cup ” was conducted in fine fashion with great competition between two great junior organizations to put another feather in the hat of getting junior golf in Florida rekindled.

Nearly a year ago after the Florida Junior Tours Team Championships at PGA National the concept of starting this event was envisioned between Executive Directors Jack Aschenbach (NFJGF) and Wayne McKinney (GCJGF) and on May 16th * 17th the vision and contest was put in the history books.
