GGGA Student Yash Majmudar Wins FCWT in Playoff

Yash Majmudar did it again.

Last weekend, GGGA Student Yash Majmudar, of Singapore, led the boys division the entire time at the 2015 Optimist Junior Golf Tour at Orange County National. There was no surprise when Majmudar found himself in the running for another win playing at Orange County National for the second straight week, this time for an FCWT event..

Could Majmudar do it again and help GGGA be crowned as the Academy Cup Champion?

Unlike Majmudar’s landslide win at the 2015 optimist Junior Golf Tour at OCN, the field at the FCWT at Orange County National was tight at the top. Two other junior golfers, finished tied for the lead at 3 under with Yash Majmudar (2016) who carded a 2-under-par 70 on Sunday. The three junior golfers then headed into a playoff on No. 18 where all three made par on the first hole of sudden death. Moving to No. 10, Majmudar sunk a birdie to win.

Last week, Majmudar won by six strokes, firing rounds of 66 and 70 to finish at 8-under 136.

GGGA students also grabbed the 2nd and 3rd place titles in the Boys 12-14 Division as Alejandro Madariaga of Mexico (2019) fired a final round of 2-under par 70 to finish in 2nd place and Pyae Thu of Myanmar (2020) finished in 3rd place, including an opening round 5-under 67.

The Future Collegians World Tour (FCWT) Junior Golf Tournament was held at Orange County National GC. The field was made up of 92 competitive junior golfers from the globe all hoping for a top finish at this 36-hole tournament. The FCWT Junior Golf Tournament at MetroWest at MetroWest Country Club in Orlando, FL, ran from March 28-29, 2015. The course proved challenging as it was recently voted the best golf course in Orlando by Golf Digest. All GGGA students have the opportunity to compete in The Future Collegians World Tour (FCWT), a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping young men and women to showcase their talent as they pursue their dream of earning a college golf scholarship. The FCWT provides over 40 different junior golf tournaments across the United States per year.
