The International Junior Masters brings 80 of the world’s top junior golfers to East Aurora Country Club once a year. OnCore gave each player a dozen ELIXR tour balls for free and participated in the Ham Am Monday tournament. Each foursome is paired with a junior in a scramble format. This event is mostly for sponsors and members and precedes the stroke play tournament that the juniors play in Tuesday and Wednesday. OnCore was paired with a young phenom from Mexico, Alejandro Nava, who routinely out drove everyone with 300 plus yard drives- not bad for a 17 year old. He finished first over the two day stroke play event and won his first match play event. With juniors hailing from Mexico, Colombia and Australia this tournament every year attracts the next crop of future tour pros, so needless to say they are fun to watch. In the long drive event the kids, all under 18 mind you, were hitting it over 300 yards. The winner from Colombia carded a 330 yard bomb.
Long Drive Contest – 315 yards ….Bomb!
Notable past participants in the International Junior Masters include; Jim Furyk, Trevor Immelmen, Rory Sabbatini, Dudley Hart, Dominic Bozzelli, and Camillo Villegas.
