The Tournament Field for the American Junior Golf Association Lubbock Junior is Now Set
The tournament field for the American Junior Golf Association Lubbock Junior will feature 58 players from the state of Texas, and the 96-player field will also feature junior golfers from Canada, Columbia, Mexico, Thailand and 12 other states in a 54-hole stroke play event from the Rawls Course at Texas Tech University, July 5th-8th.
A pair of Lubbock natives highlights the Boys Division field as Chad Meador, a senior at Frenship High School, will compete in his second AJGA tournament, while Jack Vanderburg, a junior at Frenship High School, will compete in the AJGA’s Lubbock tournament for a third time.
In the Girl’s Division Yang Yue Hill, a rising senior from Palm Desert, Calif., will travel to Lubbock and compete on her future home course, as the 2012 graduate has verbally committed to Texas Tech. Hill has five career AJGA top-10 finishes, including an eighth-place finish at the 2011 ClubCorp Mission Hills Desert Junior.
The Rawls Course at Texas Tech University has hosted an AJGA tournament each year since 2004. Cody Wimberly, a graduate of Trinity Christian High School in 2007, won the tournament in 2005 and is still the only Lubbock native to be crowned champion in the AJGA’s seven years in Lubbock.
Tournament tee times will run from 8 – 9:50 a.m. off the Nos. 1 and 10 tees starting Wednesday, July 6, and concluding Friday, July 8. An awards ceremony will immediately follow Friday’s final round. Spectators are welcome to attend and admission is free.
