Clean Sweep for Danny Erickson
Some say it was the toughest two days on the course they had ever experienced while playing on the NFJG TOUR circuit and I tend to agree. It’s going on six years now that I have been affiliated with this great junior tour and I have to admit the past several weeks have been brutal for our NFJG TOUR events. The Artic fronts timed themselves perfectly to disrupt our flow of things here around the first coast, but this weekend we toughed it out and completed another 2-in-1 tournament.
The first front that pushed down forced us to reschedule the Ponte Vedra Invitational, so we simply combined the already scheduled “I’ve Got a Dream” Tournament with the Ponte Vedra Invitational this past weekend and it worked out just fine. A little cold and a lot windy, but we got it all in. Thanks for playing!
There was a great deal of competitive golf going on around town and the state this past weekend. FJT's at the University of Florida and Jovita, Annika was at the World Golf Village and the JAGA Amateur was being played at Hidden Hills Country Club. Some of the best amateur/college players in Jacksonville and around the state teed it up and they too had a difficult time putting any really good rounds together. Bad weather is just one of those elements you need to deal with and know in the back of your mind that everyone will be playing the same condition and that all scores will reflect it and just take one shot at a time. Bottom line, don’t let the weather defeat you.
Many thanks to the Pros at both Ponte Vedra Inn and Club and Jacksonville Golf and Country Club. Both courses were in magnificent condition with greens pure and fast. Send them a note of thanks. They’d appreciate that.
Many thanks to Papa John's - 28 pizza's devoured and Professional Adam Eiswerth also gave his congratulations to all the $60, $40, $20, gift card winners. Adam said you're all great shoppers for the valued item.
