The Wyndham Cup is an annual team match play competition featuring the 10 best male and female junior golfers from the East versus their counterparts from the West. East/West teams are based on members’ U.S. addresses. The country dividing line runs from the eastern border of Texas and extends northward through the eastern border of North Dakota. Wyndham Cup teams will be determined based upon the AJGA Rankings. Matches include four-ball, mixed-four-ball, foursomes, mixed-foursomes and singles. Scoring is based on a point system with 50 total points available over the three days of competition. One point is awarded for each match won and half a point is given to each team for matches that end in a tie. As a result, it is possible that matches may be won prior to the 18th hole. A team needs 25 ½ points to win the Wyndham Cup. Should the championship end in a tie, the team that currently holds the Cup (West Team) would retain the Wyndham Cup. The event is highlighted by the team camaraderie and spirit generated by the juniors and Team Captains.

AJGA Chief Financial Officer Jason Miller will be the Captain, and Director of Development Blair Thompson will be the Assistant Captain of the West Team.
