2017 PGA Junior League Championship presented by National Car Rental to be contested at Grayhawk Golf Club, November 16-19

The 2017 PGA Junior League Championship presented by National Car Rental will be held for the second consecutive year on Grayhawk Golf Club’s Raptor course in Scottsdale, November 16-19, 2017.

The field for the Championship will be made up of eight, 10-player teams advancing from Regional competitions, which ran from Sept. 2- Oct. 1. In the Championship tournament, East vs. West regions will compete in a two-person-scramble format, with coaches allowed to substitute players every three holes, which gives all team members an opportunity to contribute.

A key initiative of PGA REACH, the PGA of America’s charitable arm, PGA Junior League is a fun, social and inclusive opportunity for boys and girls to learn and enjoy the game. Kids play on teams with friends and wear numbered jerseys, while learning the game through professional instruction and direction provided by PGA and LPGA Professionals.

PGA Junior League is one of the game’s fastest growing programs. This year, a record of 42,000 boys and girls participated in PGA Junior League – surpassing the 36,000 participants in 2016 – and they were led by 2,200 PGA and LPGA Professionals who served as Captains. Superstars Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler, Michelle Wie and Lexi Thompson serve as Official PGA Junior League Ambassadors.

Last year, the All-Star team from Las Positas Golf Course in Livermore, California, raced out to an early lead in the Championship matches and never looked back. 

As with last year’s championship, Golf Channel will later air a two-hour, primetime special highlighting the event.
