I won my first tournament!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Let the record show that a boy of age 14 won his local tournament. 1st place :D

I walked in with confidence, and I did just fine. As opposed to the more nervous people, who's nervousness led to ill-turning shoulders and tight muscles.

I'm pretty excited. It wasn't anything big, but I'm just glad I won. The 1st place prize was like a box of balls. Taylormade Burner LDP balls. They didn't do big prizes because we're only young ages, and a little older. (Which I think is unfair. If we're gonna play, treat us if we're serious.)

But yeah, I'm pretty psyched

They do the small prize so you can remain an amateur. If you get a big prize you are considered a "professional." That means you can't play high school or college golf.

You can win $750 in pro shop merchandise in one tournament and retain your amateur status

I'm almost twice your age and I would be happy with a 9 over :)

Congratulations. Your new nickname is "undefeated"

Nice job man! I was in a 14-15 year old tournament this week and after the first day I was leading but the next day this kid shot 73 and edged me by a stroke.

Re: I won my first tournament!

Really I'm not sure if we even have a junior tour where I live. I'm in South Carolina. If I was in Myrtle Beach, maybe they'd have alot of Junior things, because golf is pretty serious, but I'm just in quiet ol' lexington. We just have little tourneys here and there. This was just a local tournament at my golf club.
