SEVIERVILLE, Tenn. – The May 5 event in Hixson, Tenn., marked the first ever rain-out in the five-year tenure of the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour. Players and spectators seemed equally skeptical as to whether or not two rounds would be played in Sevierville, Tenn. Roswell resident JonErik Alford placed second in his division in the tournament.

Devout Ohio State fan Micah Knisley (+14), from Jefferson City, Tenn., revealed the lowest two-day total from any age division. Knisley came out Saturday firing the second best score in the division at 82. Finishing in second was Alford (+18) of Roswell. Alford shot rounds of 84 and 78. Like Knisley, Alford performed extremely well through the demanding elements Sunday, shooting even par on the back nine which was proven by seven pars, one birdie and one bogey. Davis Kirk of Dalton slid into the top three with a 78 on Sunday to finish the tournament +20.

The event was ranked by the National Junior Golf Scoreboard, one of the premiere ranking systems for junior golfers in the nation. At stake for this event was an automatic bid into the 2013 tour championship, which was granted to each division winner.
