On March 26, four AJGA champions will be crowned.
The Race to #AJGA2K celebrates a different kind of history.
The ANA Junior Inspiration, Amino VITAL® / Joey D Golf Preview at Osprey Point, AJGA Preview at Cimarron Hills and AJGA Preview at Fair Oaks Ranch (Ages 12-15) will battle on social media to determine which event will be named the AJGA’s 2,000th event in history. Posts leading into the weekend will also celebrate the 2nd, 20th and 200th events since the AJGA's inception in 1978.
Follow hashtag #AJGA2K where newly-minted intern teams and a host of AJGA full-time staff will recruit help from parents, juniors, volunteers and anyone on-site to help shape the historical weekend on Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat. @AJGAGolf will re-post the best content and announce the winning event on Monday, March 27.
