Team results are based on the lowest three gross scores of the four team members. Players also compete for low individual medalist honors. Live scoring can be followed daily.
Many former participants of the Junior America’s Cup have gone on to become successful PGA Tour players, and it is likely many of this year’s participants will follow in the footsteps of other famous JAC alumni such as Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Fred Couples and Corey Pavin. Other notable participants include, Notah Begay, John Cook, Charley Hoffman, Peter Jacobson, Ryan Moore, Kevin Na, Pat Perez and Tony Finau.
In additional to the field, numerous Division I College golf coaches will be on site recruiting players to major universities all across the United States. The head rules official will be Paul Caruso, the former Vice President of the United States Golf Association (USGA).
Public spectating will be allowed during this event. “This is a great opportunity for the public to watch world-class junior golfers, many of which may move on to highly successful college and PGA Tour careers”, said Steve Wickliffe Fairmont’s Director of Golf Operations. “We are very excited to bring this highly prestigious international golf event to southwest Montana!”
