It’s always nice to hit the “
World Golf Village Swing
” on the NFJG TOUR. It’s a great way to start the “Fall Tournament Series” season. The traditional “
King and the Bear Open
” was the first stop for the “
Web.com Junior Players Tour
”. Nearly 70 players registered for this great event, but a few had to withdraw as their high school team made it to the State Championships and some as individual players. Good Luck to all! In the end, 66 eager players would be scheduled to tee it up to compete for the championship and numerous exemptions for various future events.
This past weekend, as in this coming weekend’s event at the Slammer and Squire the players were not only playing and competing for “
King and Bear Open
” championship, but also for the Overall “
World Golf Village
” championship. Yes, the overall champion will be decided from the two lowest rounds of the two events. Not only that, but four players (two boys and two girls) will earn and fully paid exemption into the “
”. Wait there’s more as the low individual for each event (boys 13-18) receives a fully paid entry into this years “
” and each champion will receive a Florida Junior Tour (FJT) exemption and consideration for AJGA PBE Stars.
The King and Bear was in beautiful condition as always, but a little wet due to the watering for the freshly laid and popping over-seed. The rough, higher than normal made for tougher conditions and concentration off the tee a little more important. Over-seeding, Its part of the change of season for the courses who still transition their grasses from summer grass to winter grass. Many thanks to the King and Bear Professional staff for another great event! Drop them a note or even give the Pro a call to thank them for their support. Thanks for doing so.
Parents, Grandparents, Brothers and Sisters, instructors and coaches thanks for sharing your day with us as the players work on their goals of being or becoming a champion golfer. Your support means a lot and it’s really great to see all the spectators out their cheering for all the great shots.
