JUNIOR PRESIDENTS CUP SET TO RETURN IN 2022
The Presidents Cup and American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) announced the return of the Junior Presidents Cup, which will feature the United States’ Notah Begay III and South Africa’s Tim Clark as captains of the U.S. and International Teams, respectively. The event will be contested for the third time on Monday, Sept. 19 and Tuesday, Sept. 20 at Myers Park Country Club in Charlotte prior to the start of the 2022 Presidents Cup at nearby Quail Hollow Club.
The Junior Presidents Cup is a two-day, team match-play competition featuring 24 of the world’s top junior boys 19 years old and younger – 12 from the United States and 12 from around the world, excluding Europe – that takes place just days before the start of the biennial Presidents Cup. The Junior Presidents Cup was developed to give the world’s best non-European juniors a unique playing opportunity to compete in an international team match-play competition and showcase the global reach of junior golf.
U.S. TEAM DEFEATS INTERNATIONAL TEAM
After taking a comfortable 9-3 lead from the opening day’s Four-Ball and Foursomes sessions, the American junior golfers saw the International Team pull to within three points in the Singles session through five wins in the top six matches before Ian Siebers, Michael Thorbjornsen, Alexander Yang and Vishnu Sadagopan secured vital wins for the U.S. Team to secure a 13-11 victory.
