The American Junior Golf Association will host a Preview at Ocala Golf Club. A preview allows players with little AJGA tournament experience to compete against others of similar skill. The event will take place over 36-holes of stroke play, and 78 up-and-coming players will be making their debut on this beginner friendly Florida course. Tifeagle greens will provide tight putting surfaces with little grain and open fairways will allow for creativity in shot options for these juniors.
About the Field
- 10 countries represented
- 40 players from Florida
- Nine 2023 graduates
