Historical Perspective
What do Morgan Pressel, Paula Creamer and Inbee Park all have in common? While they each have won a major championship as professional golfers, their commonality reaches back to their junior golf careers. Pressel, Creamer and Park each hold a Rolex Girls Junior Championship title on their record. Hear what they said after they claimed the prestigious trophy:

“My father leaves for Korea tomorrow and he said when I get down to think about him. Today was like a send-off present for him.” – Inbee Park in 2002 at the age of 13.

“I felt great going into the playoff. That putt was key for me. I needed a birdie to win and I knew I could do it. Jane is a great player and she challenged me.” – Paula Creamer in 2003 after defeating Jane Park in a two-hole, sudden-death playoff.

“I am grateful that we got back out and finished. I was really patient today and very consistent. I knew I had to go out and get it.” – Morgan Pressel in 2005 after four hours of weather delay threatened her three-shot lead.

The stage
The Rolex Girls Junior Championship has visited some of the top courses in the country. The Wigwam Resort in Phoenix, hosted the first event in 1992, and in 2013, the tournament will travel to The Country Club of Rochester in Rochester, New York, for the first time. The most recent event brought the world’s top female junior golfers to Dalhousie Golf Club in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. From LPGA International to Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club, venues selected to host the Rolex Girls Junior Championship own a special piece of history in women’s golf.

The field
The 2014 competition features a strong field made up of 25 Rolex Junior All-Americans, 47 AJGA champions, 42 players who have committed to play college golf and 11 of the top 20 girls in the Polo Golf Rankings.

Three players in the field have qualified for the U.S. Women’s Open including Madison Kerley of Scottsdale, Arizona, Megan Khang of Rockland, Massachusetts, and Kathleen Scavo of Benicia, California, while three were named alternates: Isabella Dilisio of Hatfield, Pennsylvania, Maria Fassi of Mexico, and Mariel Galdiano of Pearl City, Hawaii.
