74 WINTER 2018 | NCGA.ORG J U N I O R T O U R U P D A T E Going Low R yan Grauman was red hot in earning his first win of the 2017-18 season at November's Holiday Series I Championship at Del Monte GC. The Alamo resident finished the 36-hole event with a score of 12-under 132, tying Justin Suh's JTNC record for lowest 36-hole winning score. Suh, now a junior at USC, is one of the top collegiate players in the nation. Grauman, who's headed to St. Mary's College this fall, posted a first round 8-under 64 that featured nine birdies and a bogey. JTNC Calendar Expansion T he 2018 tournament calendar will feature what could be called two test- pilot events. In an effort to better accommodate all JTNC players, both the Spring Series II Championship and Spring Series VI Championship will be Championship Flight and First Flight specific. What that means is that the Championship Flight of the Spring Series II will only be held at Coyote Creek GC. The First Flight for the Spring Series II, meanwhile, will only be held at Shoreline GL in Mountain View. Why the test events? The goal, according to JTNC director Aaron Hartesveldt, is to alleviate overfull tournaments and long wait lists. "We want to eventually get to a point where all players can participate instead of having deep wait lists. It's actually a reflection of how much the JTNC is growing," Hartesveldt said. Wrapping up the Fall, Heading Into Second Half of Season Ryan Grauman Looking Ahead: The 2018 portion of the 2017-18 JTNC regular season will commence with the Spring Series I Championship, to be held March 17-18 at Stockton G&CC and Elkhorn GC in Stockton. There will be nine events in the Spring Series, to be followed by the Summer Series, which tees off with the Summer Series I Championship (June 9-10) at Reserve at Spanos Park in Stockton. The 2017-18 season will conclude with the JTNC Tour Championship, to be held July 30-31 at Poppy Hills GC.
