Regional qualifiers to take place across the country from July
American Golf launch their Junior Championship across the UK this summer, with all proceeds being donated to The Golf Foundation.
There will be six regional qualifying events in July and August, with the Grand Final taking place on 26th August at Ping’s Gainsborough headquarters.
The event is open to anyone aged under 18 as of the 1st January 2015. There will be several prize categories from scratch comp to up to handicaps of 54 for both boys and girls.
Defending champion Paul Marshall said: “Since last year’s event I have felt much more comfortable playing golf.
“I feel much more confident under pressure situations, such as matches and competitions. My game as a whole has become more consistent, and in particular my long-iron play has improved.”
Juniors wishing to enter can apply online at www.americangolf.co.uk/events. Rather than pay an entry fee, they will be asked to make a £5 donation to The Golf Foundations, helping to bring the next generation of golfers into the game.
