Learning how to win and compete is very important in golf. It takes more than simply a skill set but mental stability and the desire to win - all of which I learned on the USJGT. Looking back on all the junior tournaments, high school, and collegiate, and professional tours, the USJGT has been one of my favorites. I played on the USJGT Tour mostly through out high school where I was able to develop the skills necessary to play golf at a collegiate level.
Also, the USJGT made it fun with the award for the â€œPlayer of the Yearâ€? and keeping all scores and stats online for the public to view. Growing up I was not able to afford the expensive costs of playing AJGA tournaments, but the USJGT was able to provide me with the same experiences and exposure at an affordable cost.
The USJGT gave me the opportunity to play 2-3 day tournaments in a great tournament atmosphere with strong competition. On this tour I learned the importance of patience, competing, and putting yourself in position to win tournaments. Those are the essential qualities professional golfers have mastered.
I thank the USJGT for all they have done for me and for giving me a foundation to stand on while pursuing my dream of becoming a professional golfer.
