Golfer Jimmy Stanger, a home-schooled senior who played his high school golf for Gaither, moved to No. 15 in the American Junior Golf Association/Polo class of 2013 boys rankings and No. 24 overall in the AJGA’s boys pre-college ranks released Monday.
Stanger, who was previously ranked No. 52 in the overall rankings, jumped in the standings after shooting a two-day 140 (72, 68) and a T-2nd place finish at the inaugural Jones Cup Junior Invitational hosted on the Seaside Course at Sea Island (Ga.) Golf Club from December 20-22.
Stanger, who signed with the University of Virginia in November, was named a first-team member of the Tampa Tribune’s All-Hillsborough County list all four years and was named the Tribune’s boys golfer of the year after his junior season.
In his senior season, Stanger won his second-straight district title, a region title and finished third individually at the 2A state tournament where he shot two-day 145 (74, 71). He also shared the title at the Outback Invitational Tournament in September.
