San Diego Junior Masters to host over 650 junior golfers in 2013

Future Champions Golf to host the 6th Annual San Diego Junior Masters on July 8-12, 2013 at select San Diego golf courses. The event sponsored by Callaway Golf and supported by the San Diego Sports Commission features junior golfers from around the world. A new record was set 2012 with over 470 competitors ages 5-18 from over 25 different countries competed in the event.

The event has quickly become a sought after event for competitive junior golfers and has proven to be a great warm-up event for the Callaway Junior World. Already 14 players who have competed in the Junior Masters have then won the next week's Callaway Junior World Championships.

"I wanted to create an event where any competitive junior golfer could compete with players from around the world. I wanted to give the international players a chance to get acclimated to US conditions as well as help all the local players get the feel for Junior World before competing in the event. We selected a course venue that really exposes your weaknesses and allows players a chance to figure out what they need to improve on and will have a few days to get the kinks out before the main event" - Chris Smeal, PGA and Founder of Future Champions Golf. "We are very excited to host this year's event and look forward to some great competition!"

The winner of each age division will earn an exemption to the following week's Callaway Junior World Golf Championships. Top finishers in the 13-14 and 15-18 will have AJGA PBE. The event is ranked by the Royal & Ancient World Amateur Ranking, Scratch Players World Amateur Ranking, National Junior Golf Scoreboard and Golfweek.
