It's clear to see that junior golf in the Met Area is bigger and stronger than ever. Across the board in MGA amateur events, we’ve seen junior competitors making a name for themselves and playing on a level with veteran competitors twice their age. Now, to recognize excellence among the junior competitors in the Met Area, the MGA is excited to announce a new award: the MGA Junior Player of the Year Award, presented by Callaway.
The Junior Player of the Year award will recognize a player age 18 or younger who has performed the best in a given golf season, with an emphasis on the MGA’s two premier junior events – the Met Junior Championships Sponsored by MetLife and the Carter Cup. Similar to the MGA Jerry Courville Sr. Player of the Year Award, a season-long points race will determine the Junior Player of the Year, with the season concluding by September 15 each year. Points standings will be updated after every points-eligible event throughout the season.
