The Major Championship at Owensboro will be the HJGT’s first ever major championship held in the state of Kentucky. The tournament will be hosted by the beautiful Owensboro Country Club. The event will be ranked by the National Junior Golf Scoreboard. Winners in the boys 15-18, boys 11-14, and the girls 15-18 will earn AJGA Performance Stars to be used toward exemptions into AJGA events as long as the field requirements are met. Winners in all four divisions receive an invite to the HJGT’s 2013 Tour Championship.
