Seven Scottsdale golfers compete in this weekend’s AJGA tournament

Some of the best junior golfers in the nation will gather this weekend at Longbow Golf Club in Mesa to contest the 17th annual Winn Grips Heather Farr Classic hosted by Longbow Golf Club, a 54-hole, stroke-play junior golf tournament conducted by the American Junior Golf Association.

The 132-player field features players from 19 states, Canada and Mexico, with 23 players representing Arizona — including seven from Scottsdale.

The tournament takes place April 3-5.

It’s one of the strongest on the AJGA’s schedule, with 17 Rolex Junior All-Americans and a total of 64 players who have committed to play at the collegiate level.

Chandler resident Hannah O’Sullivan returns to Longbow Golf Club to make her first AJGA start since her history-making performance last February when she became the youngest player ever to win a Symetra Tour (LPGA developmental tour) event – the Gateway Classic at Longbow Golf Club.

She also set a tournament record that week for lowest total score at 15-under-par 201 for the three-round event.

Scottsdale players scheduled to compete:

Boys division: Michael Feagles, Samuel McKay and David Ricciardelli.

Girls division: Madison Kerley, Ashley Lonergan, Emily Mahar and Kelly Su.

Spectators are welcome to attend and admission is free.
