|Mayakoba Junior Golf Classic Returns in August|
The American Junior Golf Association will make its fourth annual voyage to México for the Mayakoba Junior Golf Classic, August 16-19. Golf's next generation will follow in the footsteps of PGA TOUR stars and try to tame the Greg Norman-designed El Camaleón Golf Course.
The tournament will feature 78 boys and girls, ages 12-18, competing in 54 holes of stroke play under PGA TOUR conditions at the home of México’s Only PGA TOUR Event.
Tournament officials will again make every effort to simulate the PGA TOUR experience for all participating junior golfers. From the Pairings Party held on the shores of the Caribbean Sea at Mayakoba's unique MK Blue, to the course conditions and hole locations, junior golfers will receive the same red carpet treatment afforded to PGA TOUR pros in February.
The American Junior Golf Association is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the overall growth and development of young men and women who aspire to earn college golf scholarships through competitive junior golf. More than 200 former AJGA juniors currently play on the PGA TOUR and LPGA Tour. AJGA alumni include Tiger Woods, Lorena Ochoa, Phil Mickelson and many more.
