Juliette Falls Golf Club, located in Dunnellon, Florida, and “…named year after year as one of the best courses you can play in Florida,” was no match for Montverde Academy/Gary Gilchrist Golf Academy junior Camilo Mexsen, a native of Mexico, and a student in the Full Time Junior Program at the Gary Gilchrist Golf Academy (GGGA). Camilo posted back-to-back rounds in the 60s and was in control from the moment of his first tee shot. Mexsen took a commanding four-shot win and posted a two-day total of 8-under 136. This isn’t the first big win for Mexsen, 16 yars of age. He also won the Optimist International Tournament of Champions 2013 and the IMG Eagle Creek twice in 2012 and 2013. For the third year in a row, the award winning Julliette Falls Golf course in Dunnellon, Fl hosted the IMG Junior Golf Tour this past weekend. The two day tournament challenged the junior golfers with the demanding terrain of this hidden gem. Mexsen played both rounds at the Julliette Falls Golf Course near perfect. Mexsen opened with a 5-under 67 where he tallied 1 eagle, 4 birdies and a bogey and closed Sunday with a 3-under 69 with 4 birdies and a bogey to win the Boys 15-18 Division. Mexsen has been accomplishing many things in junior Golf since he was a freshman starting school at MVA/GGGA. Most notably, as a sophomore, 15 year-old Camilo Mexsen won the 36-hole IMG Junior Golf Tour at Eagle Creek Golf Club event held October 19-20, 2013 (for the second consecutive year).
