Texas Junior Golf Alliance Invitational Set for October 30-31
TEMPEST – The Legends Junior Tour’s Texas Junior Golf Alliance Invitational moves to Tempest Golf Club after spending the last two years at Eagle Pointe Golf Club. The 36-hole tournament is set for the weekend of October 30-31.
Tempest Golf Club is rated the #1 golf course in East Texas and a Top 50 course in the state. Tempest tabbed architect Jeffrey Brauer to reinvent the course in 2016 with renovations being completed in 2018. Since reopening in 2018 Tempest has hosted a USGA Amateur qualifier as well as the annual Tempest Intercollegiate Division III golf tournament.
“The Legends Junior Tour is excited to take the TJGA Invitational to east Texas,” LJT Tournament Manager Adam Schulte said. “The field of players is strong and we are excited to see some competitive golf.”
The Texas Junior Golf Alliance Invitational was first played in 2019 at Eagle Pointe Golf Club in Mont Belvieu, TX and the event returned to Eagle Pointe in 2020.
The Texas Junior Golf Alliance Invitational is restricted to players with an active membership with the TJGA with the majority of players earning exemptions through North and South Texas PGA events, as well as LJT events. The tournament will be competed in three divisions, Girls 12-18, Boys 14 & Under, and Boys 15-18.
Colleyville’s Kevin Watts captured the Boys 15-18 championship in 2020 with a two-under-par 140. Jason Shwartz from Bellaire, TX won the Boys 14 & Under division shooting even for the tournament, and Lauren Nguyen of Katy, TX won the Girls Division also shooting even par.
Watts, Shwartz, and Nguyen joined the short list of champions with 2019’s champions Henry Frizzell, Daniel Zou, and Elina Sinz.
Along with competing for LJT Player of the Points players will be competing for exemptions into LJT events like next year’s Veritex Bank Byron Nelson Junior Championship, George Hannon Junior Invitational and other invitational events.
Tee Times for the first round will be published on the TXGA website on Friday, October 29. You can view the pairings by clicking here. The final round pairings will be redrawn according to scores from the first round and will begin Sunday at 8:00 am.
