Bay State Bonanza

NEPGA Junior Tour Kicks off Invite-Only Event

- Fall River, MA

 

Andrew Giacchetto (2019, Canton MA) and Elizabeth Lacognata (2018 Scarborough, ME) lead the talented field after the first round of the NEPGA Junior Tour’s Bay State Cup Invitational at Fall River CC  on Tuesday. The event will take place across three courses in New England.

 

Giacchetto had a very strong start for the boys division. After a tough front nine, where he made two bogeys and a double bogey, he was able to right the ship, making a birdie before turning at three over. On the back he refocused his game and made two birdies on the 12th and 16th holes.  His two-under par back nine helped him to finish at +1 with a 71, one shot ahead of Frank Mahoney (2020, Braintree, MA), Dillon Brown (2018, Halifax, MA), and Mark DeCourcey (2019, Arlington, MA) who all finished at +2.

 

On the girls’ side, Lacognata led the charge. She was able to keep calm and focus even in the midst of some struggles. After making bogeys on three and five, she made birdie on six to erase one of the extra strokes and make the turn at one over. On the back nine, she balanced some solid golf with a couple of missteps, making two bogeys. She led after the first day, finishing at three over, 75.

 

Wednesday’s second round brings the golfers to LeBaron Hills GC in Lakeville, MA and the championship round will take place on Thursday at Plymouth CC. The boys champion will be awarded two AJGA Performance stars and both girls’ and boys’ champions will receive automatic exemptions into the Jr. PGA Championship in 2018. The runners up on both the girls and boys sides will receive an exemption for the IMG Academy Jr. World Florida Challenge, December 14-16 in Sarasota Florida.
