SFPGA JUNIOR CHAMPIONSHIP TOUR HEADS TO INDIAN SPRING COUNTRY CLUB

ATLANTIS, Fla. – This weekend, the South Florida PGA Junior Championship Tour presented by The Honda Classic will hold event #3 at Indian Spring Country Club in Boynton Beach on the West Course.  This weekend will feature a deep field of young talented junior golfers from all over South Florida.

 

The boys 13-18 age division will feature two of South Florida’s fastest rising young stars.  Jupiter native Ryder Sutcliffe is coming off his first Championship Tour win at Sandridge Golf Club last month.  Sutcliffe, who won Player of the Year honors for the Challenge Tour in 2014, had a breakout win at Championship Tour Event #2, but don’t expect that to be the highlight of his 2015 season.  The 15 year old left hander has great talent which he will look to turn into a career season in 2015.  If Sutcliffe wants to win back to back tournaments this weekend, he will have to overtake young standout Anthony Muttillo of Boca Raton.  Muttillo is also one of South Florida’s top 15 year old standouts.  Muttillo has a bit more experience with the Championship Tour as this is his second year competing in the elite tournaments.  Look for a great battle this weekend among these two rising talents.

 

The girls 13-18 age division will feature some of South Florida’s standout’s as well this weekend.  Reigning Championship Tour Player of the Year, Mary Janiga of Wellington is set to headline the field this weekend.  Jangia is coming off a great showing at the AJGA TaylorMade-adidas Golf Junior at Innisbrook.  Looking to put the pressure on Jangia this weekend is 14 year old Hobe Sound native and 2014 Challenge Tour Player of the Year Hannah Foster.  Foster will be […]
