BRASELTON, Ga. — The American Junior Golf Association along with the Texas Golf Association will host an informative seminar on
junior golf at the Westin Galleria Dallas, Austin 1 & 2 Ballrooms April 21, 2009 beginning at 7 p.m. The purpose is to help answer the
question, “My son/daughter wants to play golf, so now what?”
Helping answer this question will be representatives from the AJGA and the Legends Junior Tour.
Each representative will introduce parents/players to the organization and distinguish the difference between the two organizations.
Darren Nelson, AJGA South Central regional director, will provide junior golfers and parents an opportunity to learn about the building
block process to a successful junior golf career. Local, regional, state and national golf tournaments will be discussed with a focus on
achieving a college golf scholarship. Also included in discussion will be learning how to get started with each organization as well as the
competitive expectations in junior golf today.
The AJGA and the Texas Golf Association will provide complimentary appetizers and drinks for those in attendance. Free passes to the
ice skating rink in the Galleria Dallas will be provided for those family members who do not wish to attend the seminar.
For more information or if you plan on attending, please contact Darren Nelson, American Junior Golf Association South Central
regional director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
ABOUT THE LEGENDS JUNIOR TOUR
The Legends Junior Tour, a joint venture between the Texas Golf Association and the Northern and Southern Texas Sections of the PGA,
was established in 2005 under the umbrella of the TGA foundation. By joining forces a tour was created that is the place for top-tier junior
golfers to compete, and is unrivaled with respect to depth and quality of the starting fields, as well as providing access to some of the best
courses in the state. Junior players, both male and female ages 12-18, who have exhibited the skill level necessary to compete on a more
distinguished stage, have the opportunity to compete in professionally managed events conducted by the three leading golf organizations in
Texas. In just a few short years, the Legends Junior Tour has grown into one of the largest in the country, annually conducting 24+ competitions across the state, and has become a model of cooperation for others to follow.
