Lincoln, NE – Crooked Creek Golf Course played host to a NJG TEAM GOLF event presented by Five Points Bank on Wednesday, July 17, 2019. Through 9-hole team competitions, TEAM GOLF serves as an introduction to tournament play for junior golfers, age 7-13. Designed to serve the beginning golfer with minimum experience, TEAM GOLF’s format can be played by anyone regardless of skill. TEAM GOLF helps young golfers learn the game with a set of beginner friendly rules such as no hazards, stroke limits, and the ability to drop a ball out of a bunker. Along with these rules, TEAM GOLF is also played through a scramble format allowing the golfers to have fun competing together as a team.
The Avengers out of Ashland GC scored 44 points to grab their first victory of the season. The Avengers are coached by PGA Professional Andrew VanErt. The champions of this event were Josh Wall, Ethan Connolly, Easton Miller, Jackson Hall, Halle Rech and Connor Wille. Finishing behind the squad from Ashland in 2nd place was the Hammerheads Black from Hillcrest CC and in 3rd place it was the Jackrabbit Run Jackals. Each TEAM GOLF team is earning points all season long with the goal of reaching the 2019 TEAM GOLF Championship on Friday, August 9th at The Country Club of Lincoln.
Special thanks to our season long presenting sponsor, Five Points Bank and to host PGA Professional, Jared Keenan, PGA as well as the entire Crooked Creek Golf Course staff for hosting such a fun event.
