Trey Kaahanui wins first event on schedule held at Longbow Golf Club

The Desert Junior Golf Tour recently announced that eight OB Sports-affiliated golf facilities will serve as the exclusive host to all 12 events on the tour’s 2010/2011 schedule of tournaments.  The first event – held at Longbow Golf Club in Mesa, Arizona September 18 and 19 – is now in the books with the champion, Trey Kaahanui, carding a 3-under-par 139 for the two-round tournament, besting the nearest competitor, Kolton Lapa by three strokes.

“Developing junior golfers has always been one of the core values of our company,” said Phil Green, President of OB Sports Golf Management. “They’re the future of the game, plus golf teaches a host of character-building lessons that no other sport can. This is why we support a number of activities that help juniors grow within the game. In this particular case, we’re happy to provide the Desert Junior Golf Tour with spectacular venues for their tournaments. It’s a great fit for both of us.”
