The purpose of this event is to join junior golfers with golf professionals to show the younger players how great a game and business golf can be. Junior golf at the competitive level has been on a decline for the last 10 years, and this event will supply the juniors in the region another tournament to add to their calender and give them a chance to compete alongside a professional...
Junior Tour President and former Tour Champion Jeff Ollinger stated "At our recent orientation day for our tour members, we announced this great new event and it was like all the kids eyes lit up in anticipation. This is going to be a great event and we can't wait to see how it benefits our juniors in the long run."
Professionals committed to the event include Great Lakes Tour All Time Money Leader and former Nationwide Tour Player Brian McCann, 2010 Ontario PGA Champion Ron Kenesky, 2010 Canadian PGA Club Professional Champion and 2011 RBC Canadian Open participant Brian Hutton, 2009 Ontario PGA Champion David Moro, and many more. The event will still be adding more key names in the weeks and days leading up to the event.
The event has a couple great sponsors lined up and they include The Great Lakes Tour, a Canadian developmental tour based out of Southern Ontario, who has put a platinum event exemption and regular series exemption on the line for the top two individual junior finishers. Also, Tour Lock Pro, who specialize in counterweighting and golf club optimization will be available throughout the day to offer their services to all players and spectators of the event.
The Inaugural Pro/Junior Golf Classic is growing by the day and will certainly become a successful event in the years to come. Admission is free and tee times will begin at 7:45am. People are encouraged to attend this event and watch some of the province's best professionals and rising junior stars. The premise is to build a solid relationship with the junior golfers and ensure they remain competitive and have fun with golf for many years beyond their high school days.
