Over the last 20 years, the number of junior golf events in the United States has doubled each year. Junior golfers at any age now have many opportunities to play competitively. The American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) has been the leader and most competitive junior golf tournament series for the past 20 years. With alumni like Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Michelle Wie, and Paula Creamer, it’s easy to see why the AJGA is known for producing strong players. A recent survey showed that 98% of AJGA players went on to college and nearly 75% of the players received some type of athletic scholarship. So as you can see the best juniors in the country are playing in AJGA events. If you play at that level, college coaches will come find you. The main thing to remember is that not all college players played in the AJGA and there are a lot of other tournaments that will get you noticed.
