It has been an extraordinarily successful summer for IMG Academy's Matthew De Heus, who won his eigth-consecutive U.S. Kids Tampa Summer Tour event at Feather Sound Country Club over the weekend. De Heus carded a round of 39 in the single-round event, and not only won, but finsihed out his bid for Player of the Year in the Boys 10s division. De Heus overwhelmed the field, winning the honor by more than 140 points. For De Heus, it was nineteenth overall win this year; his second Player of the Year award, winning the same honor on the Greater Sarasota Junior Golf Association tour; in addition to his U.S. Kids Florida State Championship.
Meanwhile, in the Girls 10-11 division, Ariel Yu finished strongly in second place, just two-stroked behind the leader, but it was more than enough to also bring home Player of the Year honors on the Tampa Summer Local Tour. Yu finished the season with a 20-point advantage to earn the title.
