Most Improved tournament selected

The AJGA will announce a   tournament award winner each week leading up to the AJGA's Annual   Meeting and the announcement of the Digger Smith Award.

Local organizers of the E-Z-GO Vaughn Taylor Championship, which  took place at Jones Creek Golf Club in Augusta, Ga., July 25 – 28, 2011, have  earned the Most Improved Award from the American Junior Golf Association. The  Most Improved Award is given annually to an AJGA tournament committee that goes  above and beyond to improve on the efforts from the previous year, ultimately  giving tournament participants and parents a superior experience.
  Each year, the AJGA presents  awards to the tournaments with the best individual media coverage, Junior-Am  fundraising tournament, charitable giving, volunteer base and hospitality. The  AJGA also recognizes its golf professional of the year, best new tournament,  best Invitational, and overall tournament of the year.

Tournament Chairman Dan  Troutman and Jones Creek Golf Club owner Ray Mundy were instrumental in the  execution of the E-Z-GO Vaughn Taylor Championship. They secured more than 100  volunteers, saw that tournament signage was upgraded, and provided breakfast  and lunch to tournament participants. Players were also given a tournament  money clip which served as admittance into the locker room, and the locker room  was staffed with a professional attendant. Furthermore, at tournament  registration, participants received a welcome letter from Vaughn Taylor and  Jones Creek.
