US Junior Open Qualifier Information
The US Junior qualifier in Bloomington to be held on June 18 and 19 at Indiana University Golf Course is an excellent opportunity for a couple of groups of junior golfers. For the top junior golfer, it provides an opportunity to qualify to play in the premier junior event in the world. Chris Baker, a web.com tour player, former Brownstown Central Brave, and Iowa State Cyclone said, "Playing in the US Junior was one of the best experiences of my career. I always looked forward to it. I learned a lot from playing against the best juniors in the world."
It can also be a stepping stone for players who hope to move into the higher levels of junior golf like the AJGA and the golfweek juniortour. The two day 36 hole format gives players a chance to acclimate to multi-day, multiple round events. Noah Gillard a freshman at Center Grove said, "My first attempt to qualify for the US Junior Amateur was in 2013 at the age of 14. I did not qualify but I learned a great deal from the experience. In 2014, after 36 holes, I finished tied for the 2nd qualifying spot. I was fortunate enough to birdie the first playoff hole to qualify for the 2014 finals.
The event is listed on Junior Golf Scoreboard and players can earn status with the AJGA events. The medalist(s) gets four performance stars and the top 20% get one each.
Gillard went on to say, "I have competed in many junior tournaments but had never experienced anything like the US Junior Amateur finals. The USGA does such a great job conducting the championship for the participants. All the events are incredible and the USGA really goes out of their way to make you feel so special while you are there."
For $50, this is an outstanding way to help the top couple of levels of junior golfers earn experience and have the chance to play in the national junior championship of the United States Golf Association.
