Matt Csillag of Syosset recently became the USA National Junior Maccabi Golf Champion. Csillag shot scores of 69, 76 and 76 to win the qualifying tournament, which was held at PGA National on the Champions Course in West Palm Beach, Florida. The win qualifies Csillag to be a part of the United States Maccabi Team that will compete in the World Maccabi Games in Israel next summer. Csillag, who will be a junior at Syosset High School this fall, also recently qualified for the Metropolitan Amateur Championship, finishing tied for fifth place out of a field of 130 at Inwood Country Club, with a score of 73.
