Current Player of the Year Standings

Congrats to fellow PJT Members!

Fellow Philadelphia Junior Tour members Austin Barbin (Elkton, MD) and Nicholas Gross (Downingtown, PA) have had a lot of recent success in their tournaments outside of the Junior Tour.

Austin Barbin (Elkton, MD) recently played in the U.S Amateur qualifying stages in Pinehurst, NC, at the Pinehurst Resort and Golf Course. Barbin shot an outstanding 2 over par on the Monday qualifying round of the U.S Amateur. Nicholas Gross (Downingtown, PA) won the U.S Kids Golf World Championship for the 12 year old division. Gross shot a 69 (-3), 72 (E), and a 68 (-4), for a total of –7 to win the tournament. He had the solo lead after the first two rounds, and made five birdies in his final round. Gross finished the tournament with 13 total birdies! The PJT would like to recognize Barbin and Gross for their outstanding play is very proud of their great accomplishments.

Know the Rules 5.6: Unreasonable Delay; Prompt Know the Rules

Pace of Play What’s it all about? Rule 5.6 is in place to be sure that a round of golf is played at a prompt pace. This rule outlines penalties for unreasonable delay of play and also provides recommendations to completing your round on time.

How does it work? Player’s in a tournament have a set amount of time to complete their round. If they complete any hole throughout the round over their set pace and out of position of the group in front of them due to unreasonable delay they are subject to a penalty.

Rule 5.6 In Action: Bryson, Kevin and Ben start their round at 8:00am and have until 12:30 to finish their round. They finish the third hole at 8:48am, three minutes behind pace and one hole behind the group in front of them. A rules official notices this and watches them on the fourth hole. While watching, he notices that Bryson is not walking to his ball until the other players in his group hit and once he gets there is taking more than 40 seconds to play his shot. The official talks to the group after the fourth hole and lets them know that they are three minutes over pace and have until the 7th hole to get back on pace and close the gap between the group in front of them or they are subject to penalty. He also mentions that the players in this group will be timed on all shots in the next three holes. The first bad time will be a one stroke penalty, second will be the general penalty and third will result in a disqualification. The players in the group are receptive to the rules official and close the gap and gain three minutes back by the 7th hole and are not assessed any penalties.

Why is Rule 5.6 is Important? This rule is important because a player’s pace of play is likely to affect how long it will take other players to play their rounds, including both those in the player’s own group and those in following groups.


August 2019, Month of Majors Recap!

The 2019 Harry Hammond Invitational at Penn Oaks Golf Club was won by Dylan Gooneratne (Boys Division) and Esther Park (Girls Division). Gooneratne had the low round of the day shooting an exceptional 1 under par 70. Park earned her victory with a clutch performance on the first hole of a sudden death playoff.

2019 Philadelphia Junior Tour Championship (Coatesville Country Club—Coatesville, PA) 8/19/19—The PJT’s year end event, the Tour Championship, was held at Coatesville CC for the first time.
