Sunriver Resort welcomes top young golfers for PGA Junior Series event
Some of the competitors in the PGA Junior Series might be small in stature. Others might be sporting a yet-to-be-shaven baby face. Make no mistake, though, some of the young golfers here at Sunriver Resort this week for the PGA of America junior tournament are among the most talented around.
On Friday and Saturday, Crosswater Club will host the third event of the 2016 PGA Junior Series, a cross-country tour of events for boys and girls age 12 to 18. The Boys 15-18 champion and Girls Overall champion at Crosswater will earn a position in the 2016 PGA Junior Championship in August at Wannamoisett Country Club in Rumford, Rhode Island.
In addition, the PGA Junior Series events are recognized within the United States Junior Ryder Cup Team points system.
“The PGA Junior Series might not be a household name for golf fans, but these talented young golfers can play well here and use the tournament as a springboard for their budding careers,” said Josh Willis, director of golf at Sunriver Resort. “We are honored to host such high-caliber young players.”
