Cleveland Junior Shootout

(July 22-23, 2017)

  The Hurricane Junior Golf Tour was in Cleveland, Ohio this weekend at Ellsworth Meadows. Hints of rain throughout the weekend had the players curious if they need to prepare for the worst, but with a little shower the morning of the first round the rest of tournament play stayed completely dry. There was a lot at stake this weekend with the top 3 in each division receiving exemption into the 2017 National Championship. The top ten in each division would receive points towards end of the year honors which include state teams, All HJGT team and the Hurricane Cup.   Boys 16-18
