The Cameron Champ Foundation is proud to host the Mack Champ Invitational, presented by Genesis Networks, a new two-day tournament for the game’s best junior golfers of diverse backgrounds. The mission is to transform the lives of youth from underserved and underrepresented communities through a focus on athletics, academics and healthy living.
Juniors golfers with professional dreams can find any number of sound bites from Tour players that link game development and Tour readiness with junior golf. The American Junior Golf Association plays a big role in that, but opportunities extend beyond the AJGA, too. From the U.S. Junior and Sage Valley Junior Invitational, two of the premier events, to smaller regional tournaments scattered around the U.S., there is no shortage of events to play.
Interestingly, the competition schedule for junior golfers in 2020 contains a number of new events and schedule changes. A major event is even expanding its field by more than 100 players. Here’s what you need to know for the upcoming season.
New to the Schedule
Mack Champ Invitational
Tour players don’t just talk about junior golf contributing to their success, they put their time and their resources behind the statement. Many current PGA and LPGA players back events on the AJGA schedule, but Cameron Champ is going about the idea of “hosting” a little bit differently.
Champ is using junior golf to honor his late grandfather Mack Champ with the inaugural Mack Champ Invitational. The Cameron Champ Foundation will put on the event, to be played March 20-22 at Memorial Park Golf Course in Houston. The goal of the tournament is to focus on identifying talented players from diverse backgrounds as a way to honor the legacy left by Mack, who passed away in October 2019.
Champ will conduct a clinic during tournament week. The 36-hole event will be divided into four age divisions.
Thank you so much, Champ Family! Many Blessings to YOU.
