I play on the Iowa Junior Tour. Below you can see my rank for the 16 to 18 year age group.

For 2012 I have averaged under par for all par 5 holes. Because of my length, I tend to do my best on long courses. For example at Finkbine I placed 4th at the Iowa PGA Junior tournament. The tees were at the very back.
