“The HJGT is committed to serving as a pathway to college golf for aspiring golfers worldwide,” said Rex Grayner, Vice President of Business Development at the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour. “Expanding our long-standing relationship with IMG Academy by partnering with NCSA addresses an important need for those families seeking hands-on college recruiting assistance. Not only will this resource enable our families to manage their collegiate journeys more effectively, but it further distinguishes the HJGT from all other junior golf tours. We’re thrilled to bring another college resource to the tour, and NCSA adds a new element to the overall HJGT experience.”
