Canon Claycomb of Bowling Green, Kentucky

Class of 2020

Rolex AJGA Ranking: 8

Claycomb finished tied for third at the 2018 Boys Junior PGA Championship, and he also qualified for match play at the 2018 U.S. Junior Amateur Championship. The University of Alabama verbal commit ended the season No. 8 in the Rolex AJGA Rankings and played for a second time on the Wyndham Cup East team, with a match play record of 2-1-1. Claycomb was also named to the 2018 ALL-USA Today Boys Golf Second Team. The high school junior is a three-time Rolex Junior All-American, on the first team for the second-consecutive year. He also helped organize the Mason Cup in 2018, which benefited the AJGA's ACE Grant program and the Mason Goodnight Foundation. Twenty of Claycomb's friends - who happen to be some of the top junior golfers in the country - came together to raise more than $40,000 in honor of Mason, a family friend who suddenly passed away at age 10. Other sponsors of the event got invovled as well to help the Mason Cup supply the Foundation with proceeds to help other children in the Bowling Green area.
