IMG Academy Junior World Qualifier Set to Begin Play  (2 years ago)

This weekend, the CAGT/IMG Academy Junior World Qualifier is taking place at the Brambleton Golf Course in Ashburn, VA.  Six participants, medalist in their respective age groups, will qualify to participate in the Junior World Championships hosted at Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego, CA later this summer.  This event serves as the Virginia qualifier, but many of the participants are from other states, including California and Alabama.  The Capital Area Golf Tour is honored to be able to host two Junior World Qualifiers, with the next event scheduled for May 21 & 22 at the Laytonsville GC in Laytonsville, MD.  That event serves as the Maryland qualifier but is open to players from around the world.  We already have players registered from the Philippines and Hong Kong, as well as Virginia and New Jersey.  Registration for that event runs until May 19th.  Please sign up early and join us if you can as this promises to be one of our bigger events.  More events are being scheduled for the rest of 2016 and will posted shortly, including a qualifier for the prestigious Junior Masters.  Thanks for your support - spread the word and take advantage of  some of the tour incentives that could qualify you for a free tournament!

2016 SCHEDULE COMING STARTING JANUARY 4TH  (2 years ago)

 

Happy New Year's Everyone...it's been a while.  2015 was an eye opener for me, being the first time actually trying to own/operate/run a junior tour.  It's not as easy as I thought it would be.  So much more to do than just run a tournament like with a US Kids event.  So with a year of experience under my belt, and getting a handle on what works and doesn't work, I look forward to a fantastic 2016 junior golf season.  I have made a few changes...for the better, to create a challenging and balanced tour, rewarding those that have stuck with us during the past couple of years, and providing great incentives to any and all participants for the coming years.

The first scheduled events look to be the IMG/World Qualifiers.  We will have one in Virginia and one in Maryland.  I'm just finishing up the final details before the events are posted and registration is open.  Both events look to be in May and will hopefully not overlap any other significant area events.  More details on the IMG World Qualifiers will be available in just a few days.

We will also be holding other qualifiers in the spring, including the North American Junior and the Veritas World Junior qualifiers.  The schedule will include other two and one days events throughout the DMV, maybe even reaching farther north and south. 

My goal is to provide quality junior golf experiences while keeping the events as close to the DMV as possible. The CAGT is designed to provide Regional competition at an affordable price.  We would like as many events as possible to be ranked by the AJGA, NJGS, and Golfweek...that all will depend on the turnout we get for each event.

I look forward to seeing you all again in the New Year.  I hope you will continue to support the CAGT and play in as many events as you can.

Sincerely,

Scott King, PGA

Colevas, Engle Earn Exemptions Into North American Junior Amateur  (3 years ago)

 

On a beautiful weekend in Laytonsville MD, Phil Colevas (Rockville, MD) and Garrett Engle (Harrisburg, PA) each took advantage of perfect scoring conditions,  shooting final round under par scores to secure the White Oak Championship, and their spot in the North American Junior Amateur.

Colevas (2016) led wire to wire, carding scores of 71-70 (141) clearing the field by 7 strokes.  His nearest competitor Garrett Wrightson (Mt. Airy - 2016), moved up the leader board on Sunday, posting an even par 71 to finish the event at 148 (77-71).

In the Boys 10-12 Division, Garrett Engle also led from the get go, posting stellar rounds of 72-69 (141) on his way to the victory and exemption into the NAJA.  Garrett cruised to victory as his nearest competitor, Chase Adams (86-82), finished a distant second.

The next event on the slate is a big one...The Dogwood Classic at Herndon, featuring opportunities to qualify for both the IMG World Championships and The Veritas World Championships.  We will be playing Memorial Day weekend, Sunday and Monday, May 24th & 25th

***  Youth Division - we will have a Youth Division Event on Monday, May 25th, going off right after the second round of the Dogwood Classic.  Participants in this event can also earn spots into the Veritas World Championships by competing in this one day event.  Invitations can be earned in both Boys and Girls ages 6-13 (each separate age group), and in age groups 14-15 and 16-18 combined.

I hope you can join us this weekend...and in future events we will be playing throughout 2015.

 

Maryland Junior Open/IMG Qualifier Results  (3 years ago)

 

Moss, Ferrick lead the way for the Maryland Junior Open/IMG Qualifier

 

The first event of the CAGT 2015 season is in the books!  On a chilly, breezy Sunday, it came down to the last few holes in several age divisions, as players competed for medalist honors and the invitation to the IMG Academies World Championship.  31 players from the DMV as well as Pennsylvania and New Jersey teed it up Saturday morning in hopes of earning their ticket to San Diego and Torrey Pines. 

In the Boys 15-18 division, Noah Moss (Rockville, MD), erased a one shot deficit coming into Sunday's final round and carded a 146 (73-73) to win by two shots.  First round leader, Evan Katz, struggled a bit on Sunday, coming in tied for second, with a score of 148 (72-76).  Joining Evan in second place was Kurtis Grant (Herndon, VA) with steady rounds of 74-74 over the 6400 yard Glenn Dale GC. Rounding out the top 5 were Otto Voettiner IV ( Haymarket, VA - 155), and E. j. Dillon (Boyds, MD - 156).

The Girls 15-18 division medalist was Sienna Ferrick (Vienna, VA) with a two round total 0f 156 (77-79).  Siena cleared her nearest competitor, Sirena Walsh by 9 shots, finishing second with 165 (83-82).

In the Boys 13-14 division, William Klein (Bethesda, MD) rallied from three shot downs after Saturday's round to punch his ticket to San Diego.  Klein's final round 81 in the blustery conditions proved good enough to prevail by one shot, to claim the victory.  Klein's score of 161 (80-81) nipped first round leader James Webster (Baltimore, MD) by one shot, finishing his day at 162 (77-85).  Maxwell Clegg (Arlington, VA), Nathan Kim (Potomac, MD), and Steven Walsh (Chantilly, VA) rounded out the top 5.

Sophie Simon (Potomac, MD) took the honors in the Girls 11-14 division, finishing with a 10 shot cushion on her way to the Championship and San Diego.  Her steady play of 85-85 (160), earned Sophie the top spot.  Finishing behind Sophie in second place was Elizabeth Coffren (Owings, MD) finishing with a total of 180 (92 - 88).  Completing the top 5 was Amanda Levy (Bethesda, MD), Lauren Artis ( Upper Marlboro, MD), and Amisha Kalra (Short Hills, NJ). 

The Boys 10-12 division was claimed by Suneil Peruvemba (Vienna, VA), edging out Bach Ngo ( Frederick, MD) by three shots.  Suneil survived a Sunday run by Bach, but his lead going into the final round was just too much to overcome.  Suneil shot rounds of 78 - 86 (164) to earn his spot in the IMG World Championship.  Bach's 86-81 was good enough to land him second place in the event.

The next event on the CAGT slate is the White Oak Championship, being held at the Laytonsville Golf Course, May 2nd and 3rd.  This event will also serve as a qualifier for the North American Junior, an AAU sponsored event.  Registration runs through April 28th.  Don't forget, if you played in the Glenn Dale event,  a $50 credit to be used at your next event.  The promo code will be sent directly to you this week.

CAGT First Event - 4 Weeks Away!  (3 years ago)

The first event of the 2015 CAGT season is only four weeks away!  The first stop is a big one, with it also serving as the (Maryland) IMG World Championship qualifier.  The event will be played over 36 holes on April 18 and 19, on the challenging Glendale GC.  Glendale has hosted US Open and Amateur qualifiers in the past, and will offer a great challenge to all of our participants.  Registration for the Glendale event will close 4 days prior to the event with no late entries being accepted.  The entire field will be maxed out at 60 players so do not miss out by waiting to register.  Once it is full there will be no additional players added.  You do not need to be a Maryland resident to participate in the qualifier.

 

Be sure to look at our incentive packages for big savings throughout the 2015 Tour.  The more you participate, the more you can save!  Also, the schedule is still being added to, with a few more events to be scheduled in the fall, including the Tour Championship in late October.

 

More soon - check back often!

Registration Delayed  (3 years ago)

Hi everyone - as some of you have already probably figured out, registration has been delayed a bit until February 4th.  I have had to change secure payment providers and it has taken a little longer than I had expected to do so.  I'm doing this mainly to ensure that everyone's form of payment and critical information is safe when paying by credit card.  Keep checking the schedule as more dates are still being added for the fall, for one day events, and for youth events.  More soon - enjoy the sledding while you can.
