ANNIKA Invitational wins Media Award

The AJGA will announce two tournament   award winners each week leading up to the AJGA's Annual Meeting and the   announcement of the Digger Smith Award.

The ANNIKA Invitational, which  took place at Reunion Resort in Reunion, Fla., Feb. 18 – 21, 2011, has earned  the Media Award from the American Junior Golf Association. The Media Award  recognizes a tournament with outstanding media participation and coverage  before, during and after the event across a variety of platforms.  

"We are honored to receive the Media Award from the AJGA," Mike McGee,   ANNIKA Managing Director said. "I think it is a testament to the respect people have for Annika and the amount of time she gives the young ladies at our tournament.
It's fun to see her interact with them."

  The ANNIKA Foundation team  worked tirelessly to secure media coverage from Orlando-area outlets as well as  major national golf outlets. The ANNIKA Clinic sponsored by Rolex was featured  on the Golf Channel’s “Morning Drive” broadcast, and the tournament was covered  daily by Golfweek and The Orlando Sentinel.
 
 In addition to daily tournament  coverage, the ANNIKA team also conducted a press conference prior to the event,  featuring Annika, tournament participants Shannon Aubert and Mariah Stackhouse,  ANNIKA Foundation President Don Ochsenreiter, as well as Rolex’s Vice  President, Director of Communications Peter Nicholson and AJGA Executive  Director Stephen Hamblin. 

  Since  its inception in 2009, the ANNIKA Invitational has been recognized with an AJGA  tournament award each year. The inaugural event was honored as the Newcomer of  the Year and the 2010 event received the Invitational of the Year award. The  Media Award marks the third consecutive year the event will be recognized for  outstanding contributions to junior golf. 

  The AJGA annually presents  awards to the tournaments with the best Junior-Am fundraising tournament,  charitable giving, volunteer base and hospitality. The AJGA also recognizes its  golf professional of the year, most improved event, best Invitational, and  overall tournament of the year.
 
  The Tournament Committee will accept its  award at the AJGA's Annual Meeting, which will be held March 9 - 11 at Château  Élan Resort in Braselton, Ga.
