TPC Myrtle Beach Prepares For Dustin Johnson World Junior Golf Championship

Dustin Johnson on the range at TPC Myrtle Beach

You can catch some of the best junior golfers in the world at the third annual Dustin Johnson World Junior Golf Championship February 22-25 at TPC Myrtle Beach.

TPC Myrtle Beach, previously home to the Senior PGA Tour Championship, was designed to host Tour-level events, forcing players to test their ability against a difficult 18-hole, par 72 professional course. TPC Myrtle Beach was awarded five stars by Golf Digest, making it one of the highest-rated courses in South Carolina. 

The kids will get a taste of what it is like to compete for a major championship. The boys and girls, ages 13 to 18, will see their names on their lockers, placards on the range, and live scoring throughout the course, giving them an experience similar to what World Champion Dustin Johnson has on Tour.

Creating that experience takes a lot work, including lining up the tour favors for the players, filling out the roster of 100 volunteers, and attracting sponsors. As it nears, course superintendents will scrutinize greens speeds, how heavy they want the rough, and the tee and hole locations.

“We take pride in offering tournament conditions year round. We want this tournament to be a great experience for not only the players, but for the spectators as well,” said Matt Daly, head golf professional at TPC Myrtle Beach. “You get to meet so many good kids. It’s hard to call them kids because they’re so polished. Their character and the appreciation they show makes it worth all the hard work we put into the tournament. You’ll definitely see some of these kids on the Tour.”

The field is just about finalized. The last two spots will be filled at the last qualifier at Wild Wing Plantation Golf in Conway, S.C. on February 10.
