GOLFWEEK CELEBRATES JUNIOR GOLF IN APRIL 25 ISSUE

ORLANDO, Fla. (April 23, 2014) — Golfweek – the most authentic, authoritative and independent voice in golf – has just released its annual Junior Issue, which includes dedicated editorial features that take readers inside the competitive world of junior golf. With a special focus on recruiting, this year's edition chronicles the trials and tribulations of the game's talented young players on their way to future golf stardom.

In the cover story for this year's Junior Issue, Senior Writer Beth Ann Nichols explores the confounding maze of college golf recruiting to offer an in-depth look at what's involved in searching for an athletic scholarship for a junior golfer. The article not only features accounts from players, coaches and parents, but also a brief recruiting primer complete with key dates and terminology. The takeaway: It's never too early for juniors to start the college process.

"We write about this game at every level, and we take as much pride in our expertise and what we do with junior golf as we do in covering the game's biggest majors," said Golfweek Editor Jeff Babineau. "The college recruiting scene can be quite confusing. There are lots of questions parents need to ask, and there are elements to Beth Ann Nichols' story that are quite surprising. If you have a child who has a remote interest in playing at the collegiate level one day, it's a must-read piece."

Golfweek's 2014 Junior Issue also includes:

  • An insightful feature on the Little People's Golf Championship in Quincy, Ill., which has played host to several PGA and LPGA players, including Zach Johnson, Rory McIlroy and Kelly Robbins, across its 40-year history
  • A "For Your Game" instruction piece highlighting the swing and practice drills that have helped lead 18-year-old Jorge Garcia to victory at three AJGA events
  • Lance Ringler's quick list of do's and don'ts for would-be recruits

On Golfweek.com, the spotlight on junior golf continues with wall-to-wall coverage of this week's Junior Invitational at Sage Valley – the country's top-ranked junior tournament, which is often called the 'other' Augusta National. To keep users on top of all the action, Golfweek.com will offer daily coverage ranging from videos and blogs to photo galleries and social posts.
