Tuesday, October 16, 2012
The AJGA has announced its list of 48 boys and 48 girls who have earned Rolex Junior All-American honors. Introduced by the AJGA in 1978, the Rolex Junior All-America Teams annually recognize players who have proven to be the world’s premier junior golfers. This year’s selections distinguished themselves through their outstanding play in 88 national events, 72 of which were conducted by the AJGA. The Rolex Junior All-America Teams were determined exclusively through the Polo Golf Rankings as of Oct. 9.
The teams are comprised of 96 junior golfers, ages 13-19, from 22 states, Puerto Rico and nine foreign countries (China, Colombia, France, India, Japan, Mexico, South Korea, Sweden and Thailand). These players will be honored at the Rolex Junior All-America Awards Banquet on Nov. 18, at PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.
