Ore. – Inclement
weather during the first round of the AJGA Junior at Centennial caused play to
be postponed until Wednesday, August 18 at 7 a.m.
Conducted by the
American Junior Golf Association, the AJGA Junior at Centennial is an 18-hole
stroke-play event held at Centennial Golf Club. The field features 82 boys
and 48 girls, ages 12-18, from 11 states and Canada, with the host state being
represented by eight participants. The Boys Division plays the par-72 course
from 7,164 yards and the Girls Division plays from 6,086 yards.
“After reviewing the weather conditions
surrounding the golf course, we ultimately decided the best option was to postpone
play to protect the safety of all players, parents, staff and volunteers,”
Tournament Director Lauren Shelly said.
Play will resume
Wednesday morning at 7 a.m. The second round of play has been altered to a noon
shotgun for all tournament players.

overall growth and development of young men and women who aspire to earn
college golf scholarships through competitive junior golf. The AJGA provides
valuable exposure for college golf scholarships, and has an annual junior
membership (boys and girls ages 12-18) of approximately 5,000 junior golfers
from 49 states and 30 countries. To ensure scholarship opportunities for all
junior golfers who have the skill, the AJGA created the Achieving Competitive
Excellence (ACE) Grant program to provide financial assistance to young players
in need. Titleist,

12 years of support, Polo Ralph Lauren became the AJGA’s second Premier
Partner. AJGA alumni have risen to the top of amateur,
collegiate and professional golf. Former AJGA juniors have compiled more than
400 victories on the PGA and LPGA Tours. AJGA alumni include Tiger Woods, Phil
