The Race for the Junior Florida Cup

With only a few months left to earn points for the Junior Florida Cup, we'll take a look at how the race to make the roster is going for each team.

Held annually, the Junior Florida Cup is one of the most fun and exciting golf events in Florida.  Each year the state's top junior players are invited to participate in a North Florida versus South Florida team competition similar to the Ryder Cup.  As the season inches closer and closer to the Memorial Day majors, the last opportunity to earn points for the Junior Cup, here is a look at how the teams could be constructed.  The South Team earned their second cup victory in 2017 by the score of 17.5 - 14.5.

How Teams are Selected

Each team will consist of the following:

10 - Boys 

  • Top 4 players from the 16-18 Junior Florida Cup Points List

  • Top 3 players from the 13-15 Junior Florida Cup Points List

  • 3 players from either age division selected by the Committee

6 - Girls

  • Top 2 players from the 16-18 Junior Florida Cup Points List

  • Top 2 players from the 13-15 Junior Florida Cup Points List

  • 2 players from either age division selected by the Committee

With fifteen events yet to go before invitations are sent out, there are sure to be changes to the teams, especially as some of the 13-15 players turn 16.  In that case, the points which they have earned in the 13-15 events will be added to the total of their 16-18 points.  It will be fun to watch the points list as the competition to make the Junior Florida Cup roster heats up!
