Over the weekend, Bishops Gate Golf Academy had 17 athletes competing in two different tournaments. Twelve players traveled to Falcon’s Fire Golf Club in Kissimee, Fla., for the FCWT at Falcon’s Fire, and five players started their tournament seasons at the IJGT Florida Junior at Walt Disney Resort.
After day one of the 2014 Fall Tournament Season, BGGA students were filling the tops of the leaderboards of both the FCWT at Falcon’s Fire and the IJGT Florida Junior at Walt Disney Resorts. At the IJGT tournament, Francis Li led the 14-and-under age group with a 1-over-par 73, and in the boys 15-19 age group, Tsukasa Kimishima sat T10 at 6-over-par 78. BGGA students led both age groups of the boys division at the FCWT at Falcon’s Fire. Marcos Montenegro led the tournament after firing six birdies and signing his first-round scorecard at 3-under-par 69. Tristan Galant lead the 12-14 age group at Falcon’s Fire with a 2-under-par 70. BGGA also lead the FCWT’s Academy Cup by one shot.
Sunday brought our first weekend of the 2014 Fall Tournament season to a close. We had another day of bright, sunny skies, and a day full of birdies. Marcos Montenegro brought home a win at the FCWT at Falcon’s Fire after shooting a tournament total of 9-under-par 135. Francis Li claimed the title for the 14-and-under boys division at the IJGT Florida Junior at Walt Disney Resort with a tournament total of 7-over-par 151. At both the IJGT and the FCWT tournaments, a BGGA student occupied a top-10 finish. Tsukasa Kimishima finished T7 with a tournament total of 156 at IJGT, and Zaffar Sikkander finished T8 with a tournament total of 3-over-par 147 at FCWT. All of our athletes had great showings and loved every minute of their first tournaments of the year.
This week begins the post tournament assessments. The BGGA coaches and athletes will continue to learn from and develop each player’s complete blueprint, covering the physical, technical, and mental aspects of the game. We are continually changing the game, becoming the best in the world and for the world.
