I'm sorry, I am not trying to be a hater, I do support junior golf. But does anybody else find it odd that these articles keep popping up of our local kids competing on the HJGT? Yes, she won, but against one competitor, one kid. All the other articles stated that the winners were competing against one, two or three other kids. Yes, the kids won, but against one other person. And the scores are considerably higher than the scores of winners from the AJGA and JGANC. For those of you who do not follow golf, these scores are not great, they are average at best. I just find it odd.
