2010-2011: All-FCWT Teams and Awards

On Friday, May 27, 2011, the FCWT held its annual Awards Dinner.  At this dinner, players were recognized for their achievements in our junior golf tournaments throughout the 2010-2011 season.

Awards for the Youngest Divisions

Faces of the Future

The FCWT Faces of the Futureaward was established in 2005 to recognize the up and coming talent on the Future Collegians World Tour.  Many of the players who were named to All-American teams in the older divisions actually got their start in the youngest divisions of the FCWT.  As with these former players, we hope to see this season’s honorees and many others on future All-American teams.  Each of these players won at least one tournament on the FCWT this season in one of our youngest divisions.  Collectively, they represent 21 FCWT wins.

“For the Good of the Game” award

In 2004 the FCWT began selecting a player or players who represent the game of golf well under a variety of circumstances.  The FCWT has presented these players with the “For the Good of the Game Award”.  Each year the FCWT staff reviews the nominees and then selects the young people who have consistently shown demeanor that has been fitting of a Champion.  This year’s recipients have played in 14 and 17 events respectively over the past three seasons.
It gives the FCWT great pleasure to announce this year’s recipients of the FOR THE GOOD OF THE GAME award:

From Marysville, OH, Tess Fraser

and

from Ottawa, ONTARIO, CANADA, Greg Holmes

Players of the Year Awards

Boys 13-15 Division

The Boys 13-15 division was extremely competitive this season.  So much so that when the committee reviewed player performances, it was impossible to narrow the recipient to just one.  Both of these young men demonstrated their ability to compete consistently with their peers in a variety of circumstances at great venues.  Representing tournament wins at Reunion, Mystic Dunes, Eagle Creek, TPC Tampa Bay, Bridgewater and TPC Sawgrass, the 2010-2011 Players of the Year are:  Luis Enriquez from Mexico City, MEXICO and Terrence Zhang of Orlando, Florida

Girls 13-18 division

This season the FCWT Laura Diaz Girls 13-18 division had some marvelous young ladies who competed consistently time and again as reflected by the quality of players on the 1st Team All-American.  Two players made just a little greater impact.  With 12 events between them, only one of their finishes was outside the Top 5.  Between them they have 6 wins on the season in two different regions of the country.  This year’s FCWT Laura Diaz Girls Players of the Year are:  Christina Ocampo from Delray Beach, FL and Mika Liu from Lakewood Ranch, FL.

Boys 16-18 division

The Players selected for this award are from opposite sides of the country.  One graduates this year, the other is a sophomore whose exam schedule prevents him from being in attendance and since he is an Academic All-American as well, we know his exams are important to him.  Both are worthy recipients.  With 5 wins between them, the FCWT Jim McLean Boys 16-18 Players of the Year are:  Andrew Buchanan from Los Altos Hills, CA and Peter Valasek from Orlando, FL.
