The program welcomes young men and women ages 15-18, and is set to begin mid-June. “I figured we could do a good job with an outreach because we played in junior tournaments (together) and I figured we could run some that would be pretty good.” The tournaments will vary. Starley said “there’s going to be individual stroke play tournaments, best ball tournaments, maybe some captain and mate, captain and crew.” Brown is joined by Windsor High School senior Jordan Starley, an avid golfer who will continue to play at SUNY Delhi. So far, the tour has teamed up with eight golf courses across the Southern Tier: “If that means 10 or 15 kids have the opportunity to play golf, I’m for it. Our work here is done.” This is also a chance for golfers to train ahead of the season. “Giving kids the opportunity to play during this should allow them to pick up where they did when they left off, after last school season,” said Starley. “The virus has impacted junior sports immensely,” said Brown. Amid the pandemic, sports are not being played at a competitive level. This program will bring a competitive nature back to the course. center_img “Our theme is where competition thrives. We have good programs that make golfers, that form them. Now we need a program that creates competition and that’s what we’re trying to do.” The idea was created by college student and co-director of the tour, Riley Brown. His family owns Conklin Players Club, and after his semester was cut short, he created the program. Brown is hoping a tournament schedule will be set next week.
