The Nike Cup Series continues to roll through Georgia as the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour returns to the Peach State for the rescheduled second installment of the Nike Cup Series. Though it was rained out earlier in the year, Traditions of Braselton Golf Club in Jefferson, GA will host the Nike Cup Series Event #2 on August 10-11. The Nike Cup Series is a partnership between Canongate and the HJGT that features outstanding golfers competing in eight events throughout the year. At the end of the year, leaders in the Nike Cup Points standings will face off with the Southeastern Junior Tour in a Ryder Cup style event. In addition to Nike Cup points, AJGA Performance Stars are up for grabs if the field size requirements are met. Winners in all divisions will receive an invitation to the 2013 Tour Championship. On top of all that, South Carolina Junior Golf Association Heritage Points and Tarheel Youth Golf Association points are up for grabs. Top ten finishers will also earn points toward end of the year honors, which include All-HJGT teams, state teams, and points towards the inaugural Hurricane Cup. Lastly, winners also will take home a $50 Kikkor Golf gift card. The format for this event is a 36 hole stroke play tournament held over two days, Saturday, August 10 and Sunday, August 11. Registration for the event will commence at 7:00AM on August 10. The first round features a single tee start at 8:30AM while the second round features a single tee start at 7:30AM. Registration for members is $179 and $199 for non-members. For membership information please refer to our website (www.hjgt.org/basic-membership/) The aesthetics of the Traditions of Braselton track are certainly pleasing to the eye as the course features a rolling landscape complete with winding creeks, elegant homes, and fountain-ordained ponds. Designed by Arthur Hill’s protégé Mike Dasher, who has other Atlanta projects such as The Golf Club of Georgia and The Standard Club to his credit, this course will present quite the challenge for the junior golfers.
