First Citizen Junior Golf Tour Wraps Up Summer Tournaments

With the summer winding down and students getting ready to head back to school, the First Citizen Junior Golf Tour wrapped up summer play with its 13th and final tournament on Monday.

The event, held at the Glenmore Country Club, featured end of the year awards given to the top golfers in each category, along with sportsmanship awards.

"When you look at the awards that we're going to be able to give out, and recognize kids not only for their performance but for who they are as people and their growth, and to see their parents be part of that, to me it's a very rewarding time," said tour director Bruce Stouffer.

Stoffer's son AJ was one of the winners of the golfer of the year awards, in the 14-15 age group. This year marked his fourth time winning a player of the year award.

"Everybody here is nice, it's a great time to have fun," he said. "You get to do your own thing, and just get to have fun and do what you want with it."

Participants on the Junior Golf Tour range from ages 6-18, and they get the chance to play in tournaments all around central Virginia throughout the summer.

Parker See won the runner up award in the 14-15 age group for the second year in a row, and says the Tour is about enjoying yourself while learning through the game of golf.

"It's a little more classy, you only have to worry about yourself unless you're playing a Ryder Cup or something. I mean it's fun, I play a lot of this for fun and stuff, and played well."
