The top finishing boy and girl in the qualifier will earn a spot in the inaugural Dustin Johnson World Junior Golf Championship, which will be played February 13-15, 2016 at TPC Myrtle Beach. The Dustin Johnson World Junior Golf Championship will feature a 90-player field comprised of elite-level boys and girls from across the globe. Players from 12 states and eight countries have committed to play in an event that will feature one of the strongest fields in the region. Eight of the top 12 boys from South Carolina and 6 of the top 10 from North Carolina will be playing, as will 7 of the top 10 SC girls. Among the countries that will be represented are Canada, China, England, Japan, Philippines, Scotland and Sweden. Nearly a quarter of the field will be comprised of international players. A significant part of the event’s appeal is TPC Myrtle Beach, one of the Grand Strand’s most decorated layouts. TPC Myrtle Beach has hosted the Senior PGA Tour Championship and been ranked among “America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses” by Golf Digest, making it an ideal venue to test golf’s rising young stars. With the support of Johnson, one of top 10 players in the world, the tournament will provide participants a PGA Tour-like experience, and the chance to test themselves against their peers from others parts of America and the world. The Dustin Johnson World Junior Golf Championship is being sponsored by Founders Group International, the Dustin Johnson Golf School, and Myrtle Beach Golf Holiday. Johnson’s involvement with the tournament reflects his long-time commitment to junior golf, particularly in South Carolina, where he grew into one of the world’s best players. Through the Dustin Johnson Foundation, which is headquartered in Myrtle Beach, Johnson has donated more than $250,000 to junior golf, sponsoring numerous events throughout the state and helping cover entry costs for kids who need financial assistance.
