Seniors Show their Skills

It’s about that time of the year…The Evian International & Senior Showcase takes place this weekend in Las Vegas, Nevada at the Legacy Golf Club and Angel Park Golf Club. Just like you would think, the fields competing are all high school seniors who have yet to commit to a University.

The Evian International & Senior Showcase field is separated into 3 divisions. 78 Girls are playing at the Legacy Golf Club, while 156 Boys are separated on each of Angel Park Golf Club’s Courses – the Palm Course and the Mountain Course.

For all competitors in the event, the Senior Showcase seems like the last chance to get noticed by college coaches, and there will be dozens and dozens attending to recruit. For coaches, it gives them a chance to pick up a missing piece in their roster puzzle, and those who play well this week may find themselves on a team come fall.

There are three competitors in the fields this weekend from the JGTA. Un (Hope) Ning of China, Macau SAR, Masaki Ujiie of Tuman, Guam, United States, and Yuta Amano of Tokyo, Japan.

Congratulations to Ashley Cow (2020) of Canada, Jackson Scheen (2020) of Austin, Texas and Oihan Guillamoundeguy (2020) of France on their victories.
