One of the most unique tournaments on the schedule is set to return to Blessings Golf Club the week of June 13-17. The KPMG Stacy Lewis Junior All-Star Invitational is the only AJGA stroke play event to feature mixed pairings with boys and girls playing together in each group. In addition to crowning individual champions in the Boys and Girls Divisions, the eighth addition of the tournament will continue to take the top four scores from both divisions each day to ultimately determine a Boys or Girls Division team victory.

Lewis isn't the only professional to host a tournament that week. In fact, four of the seven events that week have a tournament host. The other three are returning events as well:

  • Vaughn Taylor Championship at Mount Vintage Golf Club
  • Ben An Junior All-Star at Orange Tree Golf Club
  • Se Ri Pak Desert Junior at Mission Hills Country Club - Pete Dye Challenge Course

The Insperity Invitational / Patrick Reed AJGA Junior Championship will seek to continue a storied legacy of giving back. The tournament has won 11 awards since 2011, including three years of top fundraising (2016-2018), five years of top charitable donations (2014-2018), 2014 and 2016 Open Tournament of the Year honors, and the 2013 Volunteer Award. Additionally, tournament chairmen Bob Edwards and Bob Lewis were honored with the AJGA's Digger Smith Award in 2020. The 2022 edition of the tournament will mark the 30th AJGA event held at The Woodlands Country Club.

Other summer tournament hosts include Harold Varner III, C.T. Pan, Cameron McCormick, D.A. Points, Jordan Spieth, Stan Utley, Matthew NeSmith, Justin Thomas and Bo Van Pelt.

Prestigious Venues

Every venue on the schedule offers its own unique course and tournament accommodations. These venues all share one common goal, and that's to provide AJGA members and their families with an unforgettable tournament experience. Of all the amazing courses on the schedule, here are a few notable returning venues.

The 21st Wyndham Invitational presented by Truist will head to Sedgefield Country Club - Donald Ross Course for the 14th time in 2022. Home to the PGA TOUR's Wyndham Championship, Sedgefield Country Club serves as a proving ground for the top junior boys in the country each summer. More than 130 PGA TOUR golfers played the Wyndham Invitational presented by Truist early in their careers, including four-time major winner Brooks Koepka, 2015 Masters champion and FedExCup champion Jordan Spieth, 2011 Wyndham winner and 2012 U.S. Open winner Webb Simpson, and 2013 Wyndham Championship winner and 2018 Masters Champion Patrick Reed.

After being canceled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Wyndham Cup made its triumphant return in 2021. Looking to build off that excitement, the tournament returns to Old Sandwich Golf Club in 2022. Dedicated to the rich heritage of New England golf, Old Sandwich Golf Club offers a course that rewards thoughtful and skillful play. This will be the fourth Wyndham Cup held at this venue. The West Team has won or retained the cup in each of the three previous competitions at Old Sandwich Golf Club (2018, 2014, 2010).

Bay Hill Club & Resort

Arnold Palmer's Bay Hill Club & Lodge will host the Arnold Palmer Invitational Junior for the seventh time in 2022. The course also hosts the PGA TOUR's Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by MastercardĀ®.

Finally, the top junior boys in the world will take on TPC Sawgrass - The PLAYERS Stadium Course over Labor Day weekend. Started in 2007, past champions of The Junior PLAYERS Championship include Morgan Hoffmann and Jayden Schaper. Justin Thomas made history in 2021 when he became the first Junior PLAYERS Championship participant to win The PLAYERS Championship.
