Tournament Format: The Collegiate Preview is a 54-hole stroke-play event for players with an active membership with the
Texas Junior Golf Alliance and that are 14 years or older and not yet enrolled in college. The event is modeled after a typical collegiate-style event with players playing 36 holes on the first day and 18 on the second. This event has been praised by past LJT Alumni for preparing them to play golf at the next level.

The Course: Mira Vista Country Club opened in 1987 and was designed by Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish. The par-71 layout is a tough test for the field and challenges each player’s abilities to hit shots into rolling fairways and tight green complexes. The course is being played at around 6,900 yards in the Boys Division and 6,000 yards in the Girls Division.

The Weather: It was warm and muggy all throughout the day on Monday in Fort Worth, Texas. The sun was shining and the breeze was light which allowed players to take dead aim into the greens.

Next Round: The final round of the Collegiate Preview will begin at 8:00 am on Tuesday with players going off the No. 1 and 10 tees throughout the morning. Champions will be crowned once all the rounds are completed with the top five finishers in the Boys Division winning trophies and the top three finishers in the Girls Division earning trophies.

What’s Next: The Legends Junior Tour heads south to Austin for the George Hannon Junior Invitational on Aug. 12-13. The field will take on the tough UT Golf Club layout and compete in yet another LJT Invitational event with critical points up for grabs for the Player of the Year Standings and the Jackie Burke Cup Matches.
