PGA Junior Series Kicks-off tomorrow at Columbia Country Club

Blythewood, S.C. – The 2014 PGA Junior Series starts tomorrow at Columbia Country Club.  Columbia Country Club was designed by Ellis Maples, a protégé of Donald Ross and is rated among the top 25 in the state of South Carolina.

Approximately 50 juniors representing 10 states, Japan, England, and Venezuela will be competing in the 54-hole, three day event. There are many talented players in the field, with nearly all bringing impressive tournament resumes, ensuring this will be an exciting week of golf.

Boys to watch for this week include Ryoto Furuya of Wesley Chapel, Florida who finished second in the 2013 Junior Series event at Onion Creek in Austin, Texas, as well as a top-15 finish at the event at Purdue University’s Kapmen Course. When asked how he feels coming into this week, Furuya said, “I’m definitely ready for this week, I’m very confident in my shots. Coming off of a win at the IJGT Tournament of Champions last week makes me very confident and excited for this event.” The key to the week will be “hitting fairways and greens”, says Furuya

Another solid player in the boys division is Arkansas Commit and 2013 North Carolina 3A High School State Champion Noah Edmondson.

On the girl’s side of things, Georgia native Kayley Marschke is definitely a player to keep an eye on, with multiple top-10 finishes in various high caliber AJGA and SJGT  junior events.

Chris Sparrow, PGA Head Golf Professional at Columbia Country Club, is excited to open his golf course for the event, and looks forward to the low scores and great golf the tournament will bring.

The Overall Girl’s and Boy’s 15-18 division winners this week will receive an exemption into the 39th Junior PGA Championship at Miramont Country Club in Bryan, Texas.

With an exciting field and a great golf course, this shapes up to be an outstanding event, and a great way to kick off the 2014 PGA Junior Series.
