The Washington County, Pennsylvania event will host the 54-hole national junior golf tournament, August 2-6, 2020. The field will consist of 78 boys and girls (ages 12-19).
The tournament begins like a PGA TOUR or LPGA Tour event with the 18-hole PNC Bank Qualifier held on Sunday, August 2. This gives players the opportunity to “play their way in” to the main tournament. Monday will feature the official practice round and the Horizon Properties Group Junior-Am fundraising tournament. The tournament will begin Tuesday with the first round and run through Thursday. An awards ceremony will follow the final round.
Net proceeds from the tournament will be divided equally between the AJGA’s Achieving Competitive Excellence (ACE) Grant, a financial assistance program, and the DICK’S Sporting Goods Foundation. The 2019 event raised more than $35,000 for the two nonprofits.
