Northern Virginia Junior Shootout
(September 17 – 18, 2016)
Beautiful Weekend in Augustine
On Thursday, September 15, 2016, the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour traveled to Stafford, VA to host the Northern Virginia Junior Shootout at Augustine Golf Club. Temperatures rose into the low 80s on Saturday, before cooling off into the 70s with light winds. The HJGT would like to thank the Augustine Golf Club staff for allowing us to host our tournament at a great venue. AJGA Performance Stars were up for grabs this weekend, as 52 players battled for 1st place in their respective age divisions. Narrow fairways and fast greens made for a challenging weekend of competitive golf as the players navigated their way through the course. Boys 16-18 Division
Joseph Voyta of Rockville, MD fired rounds of 72 and 76 to capture the Boys 16 -18 division title.

Coming in a close second was Sam McNamara of Charlottesville, VA finishing at (+9). Rounding out the top 3 was Frank Strano of Warrenton, VA at (+10).
