JACKSONVILLE, NC (November 21, 2015)—Due to heavy rains early Sunday morning, the 7th Jimmy Anderson Girls' Invitational was shortened to 18 holes.

Two-time champion Jennifer Chang of Cary, NC became the three time winner of the event as she and Anna McDonald of Hickory, NC were crowned co-champions. Both players finished Saturday's round with rounds of two under par 70.

Emily Hawkins of Lexington, NC and Kendall Dobbins of Summerfield, NC tied for third place after rounds of 73. Jacksonville Country Club Board of Directors and several junior golf alumni of the club started the tournament in 2009 to honor Mr. Jimmy Anderson for his service as golf professional at Jacksonville Country Club and his dedication and support of junior golf.

Jimmy Anderson was the head golf professional at Jacksonville Country Club for over 25 years. Each Saturday morning, he conducted a junior golf clinic to help spread the game of golf to the next generation. During his tenure at Jacksonville CC, he taught many juniors including Mallory Miller, the 1987 N.C. Junior Champion and numerous future collegiate and golf professionals. Not only did he teach the game of golf, but was always there with a helpful word of encouragement to any young golfer.

This annual junior girls’ tournament is conducted jointly by the Carolinas Golf Association and the Peggy Kirk Bell Girls’ Golf Tour.
