Spots In Junior PGA Championships Will Be Up For Grabs at JTNC Summer Series II Championship
There’ll more than titles on the line when the JTNC Summer Series II Championship tees off June 14-15 at Poppy Ridge Golf Course in Livermore.
Thanks to an expansion of the field size for this year’s Junior PGA Championships, the JTNC will be allotted four spots into the championships proper. Two of the automatic spots will be the winners of the Boys’ and Girls’ Championship Divisions of the Summer Series II Championship, respectively. One other boy and one other girl will also receive exemptions via at-large selections.
This year’s Junior PGA Championship will be held July 31-Aug.3 at The Country Club of St. Albans near St. Louis. The Girls’ PGA Junior Championship will also be held at The Country Club of St. Albans from July 18-21.
Among those who have competed in the Junior PGA Championship include Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods, Jordan Spieth, Michelle Wie and Lexi Thompson. Last year, JTNC member Lucy Li won the Girls’ title.
Registration for the Summer Series II will open May 19 for any player who has won a JTNC event in the previous 12 months. Registration for other players will run from May 22-June 2.
