Annually among the top 30 fields in junior golf, the Golfweek International has been competed each year since 2000 and this year looks to bring together some of the world’s top junior players.
Players ranked in the top 200 of the Golfweek/Sagarin rankings earn an automatic invitation to the event along with champions of other events in the Golfweek Junior Tournament Series presented by USA Today. To garner a special invitation to the event, players must submit a request and brief tournament resume to Carlton Reese at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Invitations will go out in August with the registration portal opening shortly thereafter. All registrants will be subjected to a screening process by the tournament selection committee.
The venue for the 2019 Golfweek International Junior Invitational will be announced at a later date.
