Future Champions Golf held one of its Kids Tour events at the beautiful Welk Resort on the fountains course this past weekend, on the eve before Easter Sunday. The Fountains course has small greens which demand exceptional control over every shot. The undulations in the greens also require precision on and around the greens. Without further delay let’s continue on to our champion spotlight in our kids tour recap.
The Boys 11-14 division was the first group to play all 18 holes on the par 60 Fountain Course. Chris Hanson would lead the way and takes home the first place trophy after shooting 70(+10) on the day. Lorenzo Neilson would follow close behind, shooting 80(+20) to wrap up his round; he is awarded with second place. Finally, Jeffrey DeOcampo would take home the third place trophy after shooting 83(+23) on the tough little track. Sofina Firouzi would represent the Girls 11-14 division and akes home her very own first place trophy after shooting 91(+29).
