October 7, 2012 - Palmer Team Victorious in the 2012 Junior Cup Matches

Greenville- The brisk temperatures did not slow the Palmer Team in their decisive victory over the Nicklaus Team in the final singles matches. With 74 points to be claimed in the Singles Matches, the Nicklaus Team stepped onto the course prepared.

They certainly fought, however were unable to beat the edge that the Palmer Team had gained in the previous day Four-Ball Matches.

The day came to an end with 69.5 points to the Palmer Team and 41.5 points to the Nicklaus Team in total. The Nicklaus Team began to gain speed during the back nine, posting 11 points to the Palmer Team's 13. Both are to be commended for their performance and the heart that they displayed. The strategic planning of Captain Hederman's singles pairings seemed to have an edge over Captain Sisk of the Nicklaus Team.

Both Teams came ready to play following the Player's Dinner on Saturday Evening. Players of the Year, past champions, and two distinguished honors were presented at the Greenville Country Club as the season came to a close. Congratulations to the the Players of the Year who have strived throughout the season to perform at their best. We honor these individuals as well as the entire Junior Cup Teams for their many achievements over the past year.

The Mississippi Junior Golf Association began a tradition in the year 2000 by honoring a deserving individual with the Robbie Webb Award to one who has contributed to greatly to Junior Golf in Mississippi. This year's recipient falls among other greats in the State. The notable, Sam Dunning, was honored with this award. Mr. Dunning, has been a leader to countless junior players at Delta State University for over twenty years. Sam has brought many a young man into his program and seen them grow into gentleman that have continued to support golf and more importantly, junior golf in the state. Sam Dunning spoke to the Palmer and Nicklaus Teams sharing his knowledge of the game and college golf experiences. We congratulate Mr. Dunning as the recipient of this great honor.

The second distinguished individual that the Association honored is one of great character on and off the course. Matt Liddon was the proud recipient of the 2012 Sportsmanship Award. Matt has continued, throughout his time with the Mississippi Junior Golf Association, to act as a gentleman and is known as such by his fellow-competitors.

Many thanks to Steven Driggers and the entire staff at Greenville Country Club for welcoming the MJGA and Junior Cup Teams. We are thankful for their kindness and continued support of Mississippi Junior Golf over the years. Thank you also to team Captain Sisk and Hederman for their tireless efforts over the course of the weekend. We look forward to see what next year will hold for the Mississippi Junior Golf Association and thank parents, juniors and all who have made this season a success. See you in the Spring.

October 6, 2012 - Palmer Team Takes Lead after Four-Ball Play in 2012 MS Junior Cup Matches

Greenville- The opening round of the 2012 Mississippi Junior Cup Matches is in the books, as players, parents and staff fought with cold air and wind gusts to see the Palmer Team take a commanding day one lead.

The temperature never topped 62 degrees, and incessant wind gusts pushed a 45 degree chill across the course. Players scattered to find extra pants, sweats and jackets before they teed off. Both the Palmer and Nicklaus Teams were present and fully ready to compete, but the Four-Ball points leaned an obvious direction. As many people watched Europe make an unprecedented comeback in the 2012 Ryder Cup, the Nicklaus Team hopes to have Seve Ballesteros-esque favor on their side when the Singles Matches begin on Sunday. The Palmer Team took the front nine points 8.5 to 4.5, and saw several matches swing their way in the back nine and overall points. By day's end, the Palmer Team was on top of the Nicklaus Team by a score of 25 points to 12. Singles Matches will have 74 points up for grabs, and Palmer Captain Doug Hederman with Nicklaus Captain Kyle Sisk hope to put their players in spots to take home as many points as they can to reach the winning point number of 56.

Four-Ball results and Singles Pairings can be found at this link.

September 23, 2012 - Team Mississippi Wins Second Straight MS/LA Junior Cup Matches

Greenwood- The 2012 Mississippi/Louisiana Junior Cup Matches Trophy will stay in Mississippi for the second straight year as Team Mississippi finished off Team Louisiana by winning the Four-Ball and Singles Matches by a total score of 78.5 to 47.5.

Entering the Singles Match Play round of the 2012 MS/LA Junior Cup Matches, Team Mississippi held a 28.5 to 13.5 advantage of Team Louisiana. Needing 63.5 points to win the overall event, Team Mississippi would need to win half of the matches, which proved to be easier said than done.

In Four-Ball play, Team Mississippi was able to take the lead by a large margin with the first half of the matches leaning heavily in Mississippi favor. Singles Play was a different story. When half of the matches came to a close, Louisiana had fought its way to only a 15-point overall deficit. Players from Louisiana capitalized on the Singles Play to take a large portion of the points in the early matches. As play continued, Team Mississippi slowly tallied a point here and a point there, nearing closer and closer to the 63.5 point winning total. Sitting at 61.5 points for the event, Team Mississippi was able to jump to and through the winning total as Kathleen Gallagher and Carlee Nanney both won 2 points in their matches to push Team Mississippi to 65.5. Although Team Mississippi reached the winning mark, several singles matches were still on the course and players were allowed to continue their matches. In the end, Team Mississippi totaled 78.5 points, beating their 2011 total of 75.5 points.

Both teams played extremely well and the competition was exciting from start to finish. Congratulations to Team Mississippi for taking the 2012 MS/LA Junior Cup Matches Trophy for the second straight year.

All final match results can be found at this link.


September 22, 2012 - Team Mississippi Takes Control with Dominant Play in Four-Ball Matches

Greenwood- Team Mississippi came out firing in Four-Ball Match Play at the 2012 MS/LA Junior Cup Matches, taking the day one matches by a point margin of 28.5 to Louisiana's 13.5.

By the time Team Mississippi made the turn, 11 of the 14 groupings were up in their matches, while two more were All Square in theirs. With a format rewarding a point for the front nine, a point for the back nine, and point for the overall match, 13 of the Mississippi groupings tallied at least half a point at the turn, with several groups winning the opening nine by 3 up or more. As the matches rolled on, Team Louisiana fought back in various groupings on the back nine, but only managed to pull in 13.5 of the available 42 day one points. Team Mississippi tallied 28.5 points by winning eight of the 14 matches and finishing All Square in two.

For the second-straight playing of the MS/LA Junior Cup Matches, Team Mississippi will go into day two Singles Match Play with a hefty lead. The 15-point lead is by no means safe, however, as singles matches will also award 3 points by winning each nine and the overall match. Players from Team Mississippi plan to go into Singles Match Play with the same mindset they had in Four-Ball Match Play: win and win big. The first team to 63 points will win the 2012 MS/LA Junior Cup Matches trophy, and Mississippi plans to keep it in Mississippi for the second-straight year.

Four-Ball Match Play results and Singles pairings will be available at this link.

September 9, 2012 - Low Scores Send Furr, White Home In First Place

Madison- Lake Caroline Golf Club hosted the second and final round of the 2012 Randy Watkins invitational, and the scores were impressive from each age group with the top scoring stories coming from Overall and B Division's Wilson Furr and C Division's Hayden White.

While several players posted low figures on the day, no one performed more extraordinarily then Furr and White. Furr began the day one stroke off of Grant Motter in the Overall Division, but tallied five birdies in the final round to post a 68. His final score of 4-under 72-68-140 took top spot in both the Overall and B Division Championships. White, a native of Benton, Louisiana, began the day three strokes back of Brice Wilkinson, who held the lead after one round at 2-under 70. White didn't waste any time in the final round to make his comeback, tallying four birdies and an eagle on the front nine to card a 30 and thrust himself into the top spot. White eventful finished at 4-under 68 in the final round and 3-under 73-68-141 overall to take home first place in the C Division.

The competition in the A Division began with a tight leader board in day two, but Grant Motter pulled out the win with a fantastic final round score of 73 to finish at even-par 71-73-144. Ross Bell finished one shot back of Motter with his tournament total of 73-72-145, while Tristan Hernandez jumped into third place with his total score of 77-72-149.

In the B Division, Furr took home first place with his two-day score of 4-under 140. Daniel Dahmash finished in second place with a total of 76-74-150, while Parker Brooks finished two strokes behind Dahmash at 75-77-152.

The C Division was won by White with his 3-under 73-68. Wilkinson played well for the second straight round to finish the tournament at even par 70-74-144. Closing out the top three in the C Division was Matt Liddon, who scored red figures in the final round. Liddon knocked in three birdies and fired a final round 1-under 71 to finish at 3-over 76-71-147 for the tournament.

C.J. Easley played one of the best nine holes of his life to come back and win the Boys D Division. Easley may have gone lower if not for a double-bogey on the 15th hole, but his three birdies kept him in line for the win. He finished the tournament at 43-37-80 to win the division, just outpacing John Michael Miller. Miller, the day one leader, performed better in day two, but couldn't hold on in the end to finish one shot behind Easley at 41-40-80. Brookes Hudson closed out the top three of the Boys D Division. Hudson finished two shots shy of Easley and one back of second place Miller with his tournament total 42-40-82.

In the Girls D Division, Karley Whittington held onto her day one lead to finish on top with a two-day total of 45-42-87. Sara Hederman came up short, but finished second with a total of 55-55-110.

Some of the most exciting competition and skilled golfing came from the Boys E Division, where all of the top three finishers shot par or better in the final round. Cohen Trolio came out on top of the division after firing under par in both of his rounds. Trolio shot 2-under 35-35-70 to take home the win, as he totaled five birdies for the 18-hole tournament. Seven-year-old Kale Fontenot fired a 1-under 35 in the second round to finish in second place at 38-35-73 for the tournament. Fontenot carded four birdies in the nine-hole second round alone. Finishing in third place was Hayes Hinson, who had three birdies of his own in the final round to finish at 38-36-74.

In the Girls E Division, 6-year-old Callie Mobley improved her first round nine-hole score by eight strokes on day two to finish her 18-holes at 64-56-120.

We would like to thank all of our players and parents for coming out and making this event exciting and fun-filled for all involved. We look forward to seeing everyone at future MJGA events.

July 25, 2012 - Thornberry Overall Leader After Opening Round of Junior Amateur

Jackson- On a day where sweltering temperatures and smothering humidity became seemingly unbearable, staying cool and beating the heat was almost as key as having a smooth golf game. Through one round, Braden Thornberry of Olive Branch proved to have both facets of psychological and physical control in his bag as he posted a 3-under 69 to take the lead. He took control early in the day and held on to it as the final cards came in. As day two approaches, he will have several players close on his tail.

In Division A, Hayden Buckley of Belden leads after his opening round 2-under 70. Buckley has a one shot lead over 2011 Overall Champion Jacob Ross of Brookhaven, and Luther Thompson of Jackson, who both fired 1-under 71 to sit in a tie for second place.

Cleveland- When Nick Mekus and Hunter Harmon teed off Wednesday afternoon with no pre-round practice due to rain that closed the driving range, they didn't know what to expect from their games. Eighteen holes later, both Mekus and Harmon found themselves sitting atop the day one A/B leaderboard after firing 3-under 69.
