The American Junior Golf Association has announced a three-year tournament partnership with Callaway Golf, a leading manufacturer of golf equipment, apparel and accessories.

Callaway Golf will serve as the Title Sponsor of the Callaway Golf Junior Championship at Vista Valley Country Club, Aug. 7-9, in Vista, California. Callaway Golf will also support the Wells Fargo Junior Classic presented by Callaway Golf (April 29-May 1) and the Insperity Invitational / Patrick Reed AJGA Junior Championship presented by Callaway Golf (June 20-23).

“We are absolutely thrilled to be partnering with AJGA for the good of the game and further development of junior golf,” said Chip Brewer, Callaway Golf CEO. “We admire what the AJGA stands for and how they run their organization. As Callaway Golf returns to being a leader in the equipment world, it only makes sense that we partner together. We are particularly excited about our title sponsorship of the Vista Valley event where we hope to add a personal touch and experience to the event.”

Callaway Golf has been a longtime supporter of junior golf and began its involvement with the AJGA in 1991, serving as a Product Sponsor through the 1998 season. From 2001-02, Callaway Golf was the Title Sponsor of the Junior All-Star Series, specially designed for AJGA members ages 12-15.

“The AJGA is excited to once again partner with Callaway Golf,” said Stephen Hamblin, AJGA Executive Director. “Callaway is not only committed to creating unique experiences for AJGA members, but also dedicated to the AJGA’s mission of developing young men and women aiming to earn college golf scholarships. We look forward to growing our relationship with Callaway.”

Phil Mickelson, Patrick Reed, Kevin Kisner, Oliver Schniederjans, Emiliano Grillo and Morgan Pressel are just a few of the Callaway Golf PGA and LPGA Tour staffers that are AJGA alumni.
