The Hurricane Junior Golf Tour is proud to be sponsored by Bobby Grace Putters. Throughout the year players are given the opportunity to win a free putter by separating themselves from their opponents with their on-course performance and becoming a Player of the Month. One player in each division will be chosen to receive this prestigious award. Each putter is customized with the official logo of the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour. Players who receive this prize can be assured that they are taking home one of the best putters used in golf today. For the month of April, the Boys 15-18 Player of the Month is Gonzalo Martinez of Longs, South Carolina. Martinez participated in a total of three events in the month of April. Martinez shot impressive rounds at the IMG CC Junior Classic carding a two-day total of 140 (-4). At the conclusion of round one, Martinez only lead by one shot. However, on Sunday he stretched the gap by recording a 33 (-3) on the front nine and coasted from there to record the victory. Consequently, Gonzalo received national recognition by winning the IMG CC Junior Classic that was ranked by Golfweek, as well as received an AJGA exemption. Martinez also finished second at the HJGT’s second Major Championship of the season, which took place at Jekyll Island Golf Course. He finished there with a weekend total of 143 (-1). Congratulations to Gonzalo Martinez for being April’s Bobby Grace Player of the Month. In the Girls 15-18 Division, JiaXin Yang of Lake Mary, FL took home the Player of the Month Award. Yang shot an outstanding 67, 69 for a two-day total of 136 (-6). Yang dominated the par 4’s of the Reserve Course averaging 3.82, recording 5 birdies on the par 4’s alone. Yang’s consistent play is what separated her from the rest of the field, recording only two bogies throughout the weekend. Receiving an AJGA exemption for her great performance, Yang undoubtedly deserves the April Bobby Grace Player of the Month Award. The Boys 11-14 Division Player of the Month goes to Caleb Proveaux of Leesville, SC. This young man dominated his field at the Upstate Junior Classic at Cobb’s Glen Country Club. Proveaux’s first round was highlighted with six birdies along with an eagle resulting in a remarkable six under, 66.
