High Temps and Low Scores at JGAC Team Event

High Temps and Low Scores at JGAC Team Event

Posted on June 29, 2016
Westminster, CO - On a day when temperatures were high and scores were low, Roger Nakagawa and Kailer Rundiks teamed up to capture the inaugural JGAC Team Championship at Legacy Ridge Golf Course hosted by PGA Professional Joe Carlton. On the ladies’ side, Hailey Schalk and Marie Jordaan claimed the title. In route to victory, both teams fired impressive under par rounds, with the Nakagawa/Rundiks team shooting a 5-under 67 and the Schalk/Jordaan team shooting 2-under 70.   
                In a format that included best ball, scramble, and alternate shot and with terrific course conditions, birdies were easy to come by, especially for our champions. Team Nakagawa/Rundiks made six birdies on the day, offset by just one bogey while Team Schalk/Jordaan made four birdies with just two bogey’s added in there.
                Both the boy’s and girl’s competitions were close, as both winners edged out the runner-up teams by just one shot. Breaking a scorecard playoff for second place, coming in at 4-under (68) was the team of Drew Anderson and Calvin McCoy. Anderson and McCoy were bogey-free on the day and carded an eagle on the par-5 18th. Rounding out our medalists in the boy’s competition, also shooting an impressive 68, was the team of Ryan Pearson and Hunter Tuite. Way to go, gentlemen!
                On the girl’s side of the competition, one shot was also all that separated 1st and 2nd place. Also firing an under par round, posting a 1-under 71 was the team of Caroline Jordaan and Amy Chitkoksoong. Jordaan and Chitkoksoong made five birdies during their round. The only other girls’ team to card five birdies on the day was our bronze medal team of Lauren Lehigh and Aili Bundy. Great job, ladies!
