Player of the Year

The FCWT Player of the Year is selected based on several criteria. One of the most important is a player’s ability to win tournaments. The FCWT’s Founder, Jack Hopson, used to encourage junior golfers to “learn to win at this level and then take that to the next.” The junior golfers selected for this award this season each won two FCWT junior golf tournaments during the season. Griffin won at Teal Bend and at The Bridges in San Ramon. He had five Top 5 finishes during the regular season. In nine tournaments he finished in the Top 20 all nine times. Griffin finished second in the FCWT points standing in his division for the season. Megan won at Coyote Creek in November and Sandpiper in February. She had 6 Top 5 finishes and finished no less than T7 during her 7 FCWT junior golf tournaments this season.

For The Good of the Game

Jack Nicklaus is quoted as saying “A kid grows up a lot faster on the golf course.  Golf teaches you how to behave.”  The recipients of this next award embody that quotation.  In 2004 the FCWT began selecting a player who symbolized the “greatest game ever played;” a player who represented the game of golf well under a variety of circumstances.  Many players on the FCWT were nominated for this award this year, because many of our junior golfers are that type of player.

The junior golfers chosen for this award have had good days and bad on the golf course. They’ve been at the top of their game and they have struggled. Yet through it all their demeanor has been fitting of a Champion.

Arnold Palmer is quoted as saying “Success in golf depends less on strength of body than upon strength of mind and character” and that is what this award is about ~ strength of character. This year’s recipients of the FCWT For The Good of the Game Award are:

Trey Davis (Plumas Lake, CA)

Max Meltzer (Corralitos, CA)
