US Girls Junior

Over the summer, Senior Golfer Camille Dozois earned a chance to to compete in two of the most prestigious golf tournaments in the country: The IMG Junior World Championships and The U.S. Girls’ Junior.

On June 21st-22nd, Dozois competed in the 2016 Peter Jacobson Junior Challenge at Trysting Tree Golf Course in Corvallis. After finishing 2nd with a 4 over par 148 in the 2 day regional qualifier, Dozois earned a spot in the 2016 IMG Junior World Championships in Carlsbad, California.

Just qualifying for the tournament is a major accomplishment. The July 12-15th tournament was a difficult challenge. After a 3 round total of 245 at the La Costa Resort -Legends Golf Course, her tournament ended short.

A few days after qualifying for the IMG Junior, Dozois qualified via the US Girls’ Junior Qualifier held at OGA Golf course on June 24th. Forty-nine players started the tournament and scrapped for the five qualifying spots. The course was playing a very, very long 6,328 years. Nearly a full 800 yards longer than the OSAA State Golf Championships.

On a day that saw a field that stretched from all over the Western United States, Canada and East Asia, Dozois, the top finisher in the event from Oregon, fired a 4 over par 76.  Good enough for a tie for 4th place and a spot in The U.S. Girls’ Junior. The U.S. Girls’Junior is widely considered the top junior girls golf tournament in the world. Qualifying against such a large, talented field, from all over the World is nothing short of spectacular.

The U.S. Girls’ Junior was held July 18-23rd at The Ridgewood Country Club in Paramus, New Jersey. The course was once again played at a very long 6,382 yards. After 2 days of competition, which included having a caddy, Dozois missed the cut.

Dozois finished in a tie for 2nd place individually and led the Lakers to 3rd place finish in the 2016 OSAA State Championships and will look to lead the Lakers into a successful 2017 season.
