TD Comments – Tour Championship @ Lancaster CC
Every opportunity I get to play or spend time at Lancaster Country Club, I am reminded what a great course it is. Plus, while there were just a few raindrops, the temperatures were so comfortable. I want to thank Head Professional, Rick Gibson, his staff, and the membership for being so welcoming and sharing their course with us.
In the Girls’ Gold Division Kayla Maletto shot a great score of 73 to edge Hannah Barrett’s 79 to win the Walters Cup for the second year in a row. The Walters Cup is named after long-time Tournament Director Skip Walters and is awarded to the winners of the Girls’ Gold and Boys’ Gold Divisions. In addition, she finished the season as the points leader securing the points championship for the Girls’ Gold Division.
The Boys’ Silver Division’s eight players were separated by only nine shots. Jesse Shue outlasted the rest of the field to win by one shot. Jamesson Radwanski finished just behind with a score of 84. The Tour Championship win pushed Shue to the winning spot in the points championship.
Different players in the Boys’ Gold spent the day taking their shots at eventual champion Garrett Engle. Several players made the turn under par, but Engle took control finishing the back nine two under for the Walters Cup title with 68. Tyson Mitchell saved his best performance of the year for the end with a second place finish at 72. Jonathan Glick beat Sawyer Marten on a match of cards to finish third with a score of 74. For the second year in a row, Engle finished the LCJGT season undefeated which locked up the points championship.

LCJGT Spectator Expectations
Tour Expectations Every Year
Where to stand/walk:
Spectators should stay near or on the cart path. At no time should a spectator be on a tee or green. They should also not walk up the fairway. The best spot is 30 yards or more ahead of the players in the rough or on the cart path.
What can I say:
Spectators should limit their discussion with players. Examples of what is acceptable- Nice shot! What flavor Gatorade do you want? Examples of what is not acceptable- You should get a rules’ official. Just punch it out. It is uphill. Or ANYTHING else that is ANY type of coaching. This includes non-verbal communications about the player’s swing.
Spectators may help with a ball search. Once a ball is found all spectators should then walk away. This will eliminate the urge to coach a player.
Spectators are not a part of the competition. Like a PGA Tour event on TV, we are not accepting “call ins” about rules infractions. The players need to protect the field, work through rulings, and ask for rules’ officials. If you see a player committing a rule’s violation, make a note and talk with your son/daughter after the event about how they should have handled it. Spectators may call in for a rules’ official only if a player asks them to do so.
Extra Expectations This Year
One Spectator per Player:
Each player may have one spectator, plus any siblings 14 and under. A family may not have three spectators just because two of the players don’t have any spectators. Spectators are non-transferrable.
The designated spectator MUST check in prior to going onto the course to get their temperature checked. Once cleared, they will get a LCJGT tag to wear showing that they are cleared to be on the course. If you don’t have the tag we will ask you to head back to the parking lot.
Please socially distance as much as possible. Spectators must have a mask on to enter a building, if helping with a ball search, or any time there is close interaction.
No Handicap Carts:
This year we will not be doing any handicap carts.
