Villa Rica, GA (March 3, 2013)- The Hurricane Junior Golf Tour traveled to Georgia this past weekend for the first event of the Nike Cup Series. The event was hosted by the Canongate Club at Mirror Lake in Villa Rica, GA. The Nike Cup Series is a newly found partnership with Canongate in which players play for points towards typical year end HJGT honors as well as the Nike Cup Series itself. The weather did not cooperate with the weekend’s exciting event. Temperatures barely climbed into the 40s both days and snow flurries were seen as well. A lot was at stake for the participants in this event. The winners of both the boy’s and girl’s 15-18 age divisions received GA Big I Qualifier exemptions and four performance stars for the AJGA which will provide an exemption. Winners in all four divisions received an automatic exemption into the 2013 Tour Championship and a free pair of Kikkor Shoes. Top ten finishers received points towards year end honors including All-HJGT teams and the Hurricane Cup. Finally South Carolina Junior Golf Association Heritage Points and Tarheel Youth Golf Association points were earned.
