Future Champions Golf announces 2013 Western States Players Cup

SAN DIEGO -- After a highly successful 6th Annual San Diego Junior Amateur at the beginning of the year, Future Champions Golf is looking to keep the success going with the 3rd Annual Western States Players Cup. Hosted at Menifee Lakes Country Club in Menifee, CA and the newly added Links at Summerly in Lake Elsinore, CA, the 2013 Western States Players Cup field is already at a record 190 junior golfers and growing by the day. With so much on the line for the top-finishers at this event, it is no surprise that the field has grown to such a large number. What exactly is on the line you ask?

Future Champions is also hoping to invite out multiple men and women collegiate golf coaches and provide a talk from Sportsforce to the junior golfers on college recruiting online profiles and how to optimize your chances of getting recruited.

Along with the successful growth of the World Series Events, Future Champions Golf has made an announcement that will hopefully increase the field sizes and competitiveness of National Tour Events. Just yesterday, FCG announced that four tournaments will now be qualifiers for the prestigious 2013 Golfweek West Coast Invitational. The event will be held at Longbow Golf Club in Mesa, AZ on May 17th-18th. This event is always heavily recruited by college coaches and has one of the strongest fields in the country.
