EDMONTON, ALBERTA – JULY 23, 2019 – The 47th annual Junior America’s Cup is set to take flight this week at Blackhawk Golf Club in Edmonton, Alberta. A field of 72 players from 18 teams representing 12 U.S. States, two Canadian Provinces and Mexico will take to the course at 7:30 am MT on Tuesday in what will be the third time the international competition has been hosted in the province of Alberta.

The Blackhawk Golf Club in southwest Edmonton has set itself up to be a challenging yet fair championship venue for this years championship and is in phenomenal condition despite an abnormally wet spring in northern Alberta.

Each team of four junior age players will compete over 54 holes to determine who will hoist the championship trophy. Amongst the field are last weeks U.S. Junior Boy’s Championship runner-up Bo Jin who will be part of the Southern California team. Also returning for the Junior America’s Cup this year is last years Sally Pini award winner Dillon Stewart from Colorado who is hoping to become the first back to back winner of the individual medalist trophy.

Representing Washington this year is a team comprised of Daniel Kim (Mukilteo), Preston Bebich (Gig Harbor), Ian Siebers (Bellevue) and Drew Warford (Snoqualmie). All players earned their spot on the WJGA team by finishing in the top-4 of the WJGA Performance Points List at the conclusion of the Junior World Qualifier in June.

Play will begin Tuesday July 23rd at 7:30 am off of the 1st & 10th Tee.
