The Hurricane Junior Golf Tour hosted the Hilton Head Junior Classic November 16-17 at Palmetto Dunes Golf Club in Hilton Head. After a rainy & cold Saturday and an incredible comeback on Sunday, G2 Girl Regina Plascencia won the title, shooting a final round of 68 (-2) to bring home the win.
Saturday's weather was some of the worst you will see all year in the South Carolina Lowcountry - the girls battled the cold, wind and rain. Regina posted a 79 in Round 1, trailing by 8 shots but holding 2nd place.
The sun came out for Round 2 and Regina came back with it. She had 3 birdies and 1 bogey on Sunday, and birdied holes 13 & 14 back to back. It was a great day to post some red numbers and bring home the first G2 Girl win in history!
Regina finished the tournament at +7 (79-68-147), winning the Girls 14-18 Division by 3-strokes. Click here to view the full leaderboard from the tournament.
