2018 TOYOTA Junior Golf World Cup Supported by JAL Tees Off June 12 United States looks to defend boys’, girls’ titles for third-consecutive year TOYOTA CITY, Japan – Eighty-seven of the world’s best junior golfers will descend upon Toyota City, Aichi-Prefecture, Japan, to represent their countries when the 2018 TOYOTA Junior Golf World Cup Supported by JAL tees off on June 12. The Chukyo Golf Club’s Ishino Course will once again play host to the event – the fifth consecutive in which a girls’ competition is included. The 2018 TOYOTA Junior Golf World Cup Supported by JAL is the world’s only junior golf championship in which 15 national teams – winners of regional qualifiers held across six continents and participated in by more than 65 national teams – compete for the world championship. Two-time defending champion United States leads the boys’ field of 15 countries – Argentina, Canada, Colombia, Denmark, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Morocco, New Zealand, South Africa, Spain and Thailand. “It is an historic opportunity for the United States teams,” tournament committee Chairman William Kerdyk said. “Never in the 26-year history of the TOYOTA Junior Golf World Cup has a country won three consecutive titles. To have two teams with that chance – particularly two teams from the same country – makes this a very special year.” The 2018 TOYOTA Junior Golf World Cup Supported by JAL – which follows a four-players-count-three scores format in the boys’ competition and a three-players-count-two scores format in the girls’ competition – will consist of four rounds played June 12-15. Former participants of the TOYOTA Junior Golf World Cup who have gone on to win Major Championships on the PGA Tour are South Africa’s Trevor Immelman, Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel, Justin Rose and Danny Willett of England and Sweden’s Henrik Stenson. In the girls’ competition, two-time defending champion United States will be accompanied by Canada, Colombia, Italy, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, South Africa and Sweden. “We have been thrilled with the success of the girls’ competition,” tournament committee Vice Chairman Eiji Tagashira said. “The highly-ranked participants and impressive quality of play from countries around the world has continued to enhance the overall caliber of the event.” For more information, please visit www.wjgtc.org and for the video library – including the introduction video and interviews with former players – please visit http://wjgtc.org/japanese/movie/index.html.
