in,” said Brent Paladino, Co-Tournament Director of the Northern Junior. “Our
hope is to continue to expand our reach and give players across the country an
opportunity to play in a tournament they’ll never forget on one of the best golf
courses in the northeast.”

The 2015 Northern Junior Championship featured its strongest field to
date, as 117 players from eighteen different states and provinces gathered at
New Haven Country Club for the 36-hole stroke play competition. Connor Daly of Bronxville,
New York captured the Boys Championship with rounds of 70-70—142 for a one
stroke victory, and Alissa Yang of Norcross, Georgia captured the Girls
Championship with rounds of 74-71—147 for a two stroke victory. The Tournament
Committee also
awarded the annual Ryan Lee Memorial Scholarship to Nabila
Inak of Forest Hills, New York, who entered her freshman year at Newberry
College this past fall to compete on their Division II collegiate golf team.

The 2016 Northern Junior kicks off Monday, August 1st,
with practice rounds followed by the Players Welcome Reception and Ryan Lee
Scholarship presentation. The championship will be contested Tuesday &
Wednesday, August 2nd and 3rd, with the low 36-hole score
in the Boys and Girls Championship being crowned the champion. Spectators are
