by | May 9, 2022 | News

The American Junior Golf Association and National Sponsor TaylorMade Golf have announced the field of 72 players for the Team TaylorMade Invitational, a top-level junior golf event over Memorial Day weekend at Jupiter Hills Club in Tequesta, FL, May 27-30.

Invited exclusively through the Rolex AJGA Rankings, Jupiter Hills Club will host the top boys in the world and the AJGA for the first time.

The Team TaylorMade Invitational is part of a rich history of events, including the AJGA Simplify Boys Championship at Carlton Woods, Wyndham Invitational presented by Truist, and The Junior PLAYERS Championship. This event, and the Jack Burke Jr. Invitational, debuted in 2021 and are the first two AJGA boys-only stroke play Invitationals added to the schedule since 2007.

In addition to competition from one of the strongest fields in national junior golf, AJGA National Partner TaylorMade will provide a unique tournament experience with activities hosted at Jupiter Hills, as well as Team TaylorMade engagement, prizes and social media support.

TaylorMade has been involved with the AJGA as a product supplier and partner for more than 25 years. It joined as an Official Partner in 2011 and invested fully as a National Sponsor in 2016.

The Team TaylorMade Invitational field is stout with 43 former AJGA champions, 21 Rolex Junior All-Americans, and 12 of the top 20 boys in the current Rolex AJGA Rankings:

He also finished runner-up in two other AJGA Invitationals (Wyndham Invitational presented by Truist and The Junior PLAYERS Championship). Dunlap signed a National Letter of Intent to play collegiate golf at the University of Alabama in the fall.
