Terzian Takes MFJGT Championship
Chris Terzian ('23) completed the record setting 2021 MFJGT Season with a win in the season finale at Stone Creek Golf Club in Ocala. Terzian got off to a fast start carding a solid 68 (-4) in the first round. Terzian's 68 led by 4 over Jack Dunham ('23) and by 5 over Xavier Sahajpal ('25). Terzian got off to a fast start in round two with a couple of early birdies but ran into a rough stretch playing holes 4-6 in 6 shots over par. to see his lead shrink to just a single stroke over Dunham and two over Sahajpal. From that point on Terzian steadied himself, playing one under par the rest of the way to bring home the final MFJGT Major Championship of the year. Terzian's win tightened up the final Player of the Year Standings but he was unable to overtake the lead Jack Dunham had amassed throughout his solid season. Dunham set the Season Point Standing Record with his 5 wins (356). Meanwhile, Terzian finished his season with a Season Scoring Average of 71.0, breaking his own record set last season by1.6 shots per round. Also of note, Clipper Salmon ('25) also posted a below par season scoring average 71.9.
