RELEASE: MAPGA Boys Junior PGA Championship

The Middle Atlantic Section Boys Junior PGA Championship will take place June 29-30 at the U.S. Naval Academy Golf Course in Annapolis Maryland.

The champion will have the opportunity to join 144 of the nation’s top male junior golfers in the PGA of America’s premium junior event, the 42nd Boys Junior PGA Championship, hosted at The Country Club of St. Albans in St. Albans, Missouri. The Country Club of St. Albans has consistently been ranked in the Top 10 courses in the state of Missouri by Golf Digest and looks to be a fantastic venue for the event. The Boys Junior PGA Championship will be held from July 31-August 3, 2017.

This year’s Championship will have twice the field size of previous years. This means each of the 41 PGA of America Sections will receive two invitations. One for the Middle Atlantic Section Boys Junior Champion and the other a Middle Atlantic Section At-Large Bid.

Juniors must be no older than 18 years of age on Aug. 3, 2017.

The Boys Junior PGA Championship is where some of the best in the world get their start. Many of today’s PGA Tour professionals made their debut at the Championship. Notable past participants include, Tiger Woods, Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth, Stewart Cink and Phil Mickelson.
