HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. – Every year the United States Golf Association (USGA) conducts our nation’s National Championship for junior golfers across the country. This year the International Junior Golf Tour (IJGT) was represented well with 27 total members playing. All players had to qualify for the championship and it is quite an accomplishment to make it into the tournaments.

The U.S. Junior Amateur this year is being held at Martis Camp in Truckee, Calif. The Tom Fazio design is playing over 7,600 yards and marks the longest course in championship history. Here are the IJGT members that qualified for the championship.
