On a beautiful North Carolina day, the 2001 Junior Golf Skills Competition made its April 7th stop, in Greensboro, at Stony Creek Golf Course. On the same weekend as the Masters, the Jr. Golfers from Greensboro put on a show of their own, and for the second consecutive event it took a putting playoff between Geo Yang and Anthony Tsiolkas to decide the 1st and 2nd place winners in the 11 and 12-age division. This group of Jr. Golfers showed tremendous sportsmanship and etiquette, but most of all they showed how much fun they have playing golf.
On April 11, in Augusta, Georgia the 2001 Junior Golf Skills Competition brought its traveling show to The First Tee of Augusta. Just three days after history was made at the Masters, many future Tiger Woods had their chance to shine in Augusta as well. This event was a great success because of the support from several groups, along with Augusta being a great golf Community. It was great to have the support of the Augusta Youth Center and the Boys and Girls Club of Augusta. This event was a magnet for media coverage. Comcast brought out their camera crew to catch all of the great golf action provided by the Augusta Juniors. The event was also covered by all three major networks, ABC, CBS, and NBC, as well as being featured on the front-page of the Augusta Chronicle. The Augusta event will always be a favorite of the Junior Golf Skills program.
