William Fankhauser wins the 36-Hole NCJT Tour Championship in the Boys 16-19 Division with rounds of 70-80–150. Round 1 was played on the Weiskopf Course and William took a four-stroke lead with a 32-38–70. He had 4 birdies and an eagle in his first round. Round 2 was played on the Devlin Course and things got interesting when William went double, triple, double over holes 6, 7 & 8 and ended his first nine with 44 strokes. This allowed Dominik Cosic to take a one stroke lead to the final nine holes. On the final nine William played strong and was one under through the first five holes. Dominik played the first five on the back nine in 4 over, that included an OB triple bogey on #13, to drop 4 back. But it was over yet, on holes 15 & 16, William went 3 over with an OB on the par 3 #15 and the lead was back to one stroke with two holes to play. On #17 Dominik had a bogey to drop two back and on the final hole William made a smart play on his second shot to hole high in the center of the green as Dominik ended up just short of the green. Dominik needed a chip-in and a three putt from William to pull off the comeback and he almost got the chip-in with a great chip to less than a foot, but William ended it in style by rolling in his 12 foot birdie putt to finish with a three stroke victory.

Dominik Cosic finished 2nd place with a 74-79–153. Thomas Coyne finished 3rd place with rounds of 77-78–155.

3 Hours 39 minutes at Madison

NCJT players are moving along these days. We had another fast pace at Madison CC today. 3 hours and 39 minutes was the official pace of the last pairing in the field. Which means all groups ahead played at least as fast. Congratulations to the entire field and the reward is another “Skittles for Skiddaddlers” day tomorrow at Chardon Lakes. Everyone at the Chardon Lakes event will receive the Skittles reward. It’s a pay it forward type reward!

Playing at a good pace helps players get into a good rhythm, a good frame of mind and eliminates negative thoughts. Those are all good traits for playing better golf. This also means players are anticipating and thinking ahead, which leads to a higher level of focus. Rhythm and focus usually produce great results; better shots and improved scoring. Keep it up NCJT!

Pace of Play – NEW RECORD

3 Hours and 20 minutes is a NEW ALL-TIME RECORD for NCJT

One of the missions of the North Coast Junior Tour is to create tournament players out of the junior golfers that play on tour. To become a real tournament player is to know and practice good “Spirit of the Game” procedures and efficiencies. When all of our tournament players a up to speed and playing with these Spirit of the Game traits we start to achieve amazing Pace of Play results. We measure the pace of the field by the last pairings time, which means everyone ahead of them had to do equally as good or better on pace of play.

This week had two great achievements in pace of play. First, at Little Mountain on Wednesday, July 15, we recorded a 3 hour and 52 minute time for the last group of the day (the 10:30 AM group). Then on Thursday, July 16 at Black Brook we set a new all-time record of 3 hours and 20 minutes for the last group of the day (the 10:10am group), they finish at 1:30 pm on the button. Our prior record was 3 hours and 38 minutes at Pine Ridge in 2013.

Breaking the 4 hour mark is common on NCJT, last year we did it 6 times. In 2020, we have two back to back events under the 4 hour mark and we expect to see a few more over the last 4 tournament rounds of the season. Any time we break 4 hours all the players at the next event receive the “Skittles for Skidaddlers” award (a pack of Skittles).

NCJT – Junior + 4AM Golf Classic

7/9/2020 – Sand Ridge Golf Club
Par 72, 6330 Yards

The team of Ella Wong (JR), Mike Stickler, Patrick Flipovitz, Peter Eells, and Thomas Wong fired an incredible score of 29-26–55 (17 under par) to win the JR-4AM Team Division at Sand Ridge Golf Club in Chardon, OH. The format is unique; the amateur foursome plays a scramble and the junior plays stroke play in a junior division, and the team score is the better ball of the scramble score or the junior score for each hole. The Stickler team posted 13 birdies and two eagles to claim the team title. The second place team of Connor Gdovin (JR), Joe Del Balso, Ryan O’Donnell, Jeff Sewitke, and Kevin Huster, also had two eagles, but were two less in the birdie department to finish two back with an outstanding 15 under par performance.

JR-4AM Team Division
Stickler Team – 29-26–55 (-17)
Del Balso Team – 28-29–57 (-15)
Alspach Team – 27-31–58 (-14)
Trusso Team – 31-29–60 (-12)
Tomazic Team – 31-30–61 (-11)

JR-4AM Junior Division

Ian Diffenbacher won in a one shot Closest to the Pin playoff to capture the JR-4AM Junior Division. He shot a comeback 34-39–73 (+1) to tie with Dominik Cosic 37-36–73 (+1) . The one shot playoff was played from the patio to the flagstick on the 18th green. It was a 145 yard shot and Ian fired his winning shot to 12 feet from the hole, while Dominik’s ball just rolled over the back edge of the green.

Ian’s round got off to a slow start, making bogey on his first 3 holes until he made an eagle on the par 5 6th hole, and then followed up with a birdie on #9. Dominik got off to a hot start, making birdies on his first two holes, followed by back to back bogies to fall back to even par. Dominik went on to make 12 pars on his next 14 holes. Antonio Bodziony finished in 3rd place 37-38–75 (+3). Antonio had 3 birdies and 6 bogeys.
