Go East!

The East has put together a strong group of players in its bid to claim its first Canon Cup since 2000.

Sixteen Rolex Junior All-Americans, including eight first-teamers are lined up to play.

This includes none other than Brian Harman, the Rolex Junior Player of the Year who has proven difficult to beat at the biggest AJGA tournaments. Harman defended his title in June at the FootJoy Boys Invitational, where he holed a 50-foot putt on the 72nd hole to win by one shot. In addition to his FootJoy title in 2003, Harman won the Thunderbird International Junior and Polo Golf Junior Classic.

Along with Harman, Robert Gates Jr., and Jarred Texter return from the 2003 team.
The East girls are a formidable squad, with the likes of 2002 Rolex Junior Player of the Year In-Bee Park, Morgan Pressel and Julieta Granada in competition.

Park followed up her top-honor 2002 season with four more AJGA victories in 2003, including a win at the Rolex Tournament of Champions.

In major championship competition, Pressel won this year’s Rolex Tournament of Champions, along with two other AJGA events, while Granada won the Rolex Girls Junior Championship.

Sukjin-Lee Wuesthoff proved her match play ability in winning the 2003 U.S. Girls Junior Championship.

Granada, Wuesthoff, Brittany Lincicome and Jennifer Pandolfi return from a year ago.
