Preview: HP Boys Championship at Carlton Woods

Tournament website • Tournament field

As the longest-running, all-boys tournament on the AJGA schedule, it’s no surprise to find some of golf’s biggest names on the event’s list of past champions. The record includes prominent junior, college and professional golfers, and many have succeeded at all three levels.
Of the 27 past champions, six won the HP Boys Championship during Rolex Junior Player of the Year seasons: David Duval (1989), Lee McEntee (1990), Tiger Woods (1992), Robert Floyd (1994), Seung Su Han (2002), and Cameron Peck (2008). Additionally, Matthew Rosenfeld (2001) set the tournament scoring record and won the tournament one year after being named Rolex Junior Player of the Year.
Former champions have gone on to succeed at the collegiate level as well. In the last decade, several HP Boys Championship winners have earned All-America and
All-Conference accolades, including Oklahoma State’s Rickie Fowler, Clemson’s Kyle Stanley, Texas’ Matthew Rosenfeld and Jordan Spieth, and Texas A&M’s Robert Gates, Jr.
Golf’s highest level is represented by three major championship winners. Jim Furyk captured the inaugural HP Boys Championship in 1987; 16 years later, he won the U.S. Open at Olympia Fields Country Club. David Duval has a British Open Championship to his credit and was No. 1 in the world for 15 weeks in 1999, while Tiger Woods is still rewriting the record books and has 14 career majors.
 In 2012, Shun Yat Hak of Lake Mary, Fla., competed at Carlton Woods for the fourth year in a row and overcame a three-stroke deficit to earn his second Invitational victory. Currently a freshman at Georgia Tech, Hak was a three-time Rolex Junior All-American and tallied five career AJGA wins.
“I wish I could never graduate high school because I really want to play this tournament every year,” Hak said following his win in 2012. “Thank you to the volunteers and all the sponsors because I think this is the best tournament on the AJGA.”
Golf’s premier players have passed the test presented to them by the HP Boys Championship. With such a rich tournament history, the tournament future is as promising as ever.
