(RELEASE) — The Pepsi Little People’s Golf Championships is delighted to announce that the 2022 tournament will again be recognized by the American Junior Golf Association (AJGA). Little People’s has been a part of the AJGA recognition system since 1987, with the winners and subsequent places in the boys and girls 14-18 and 12-13 divisions receiving Performance Stars. Below are the Performance Stars given for each Division in 2022.
It is important that Pepsi Little People’s is able to offer its golfers in these age groups an opportunity to gain AJGA Performance Stars, as it helps them to build a resume under the AJGA PBE system and helps with possible college scholarships. In addition, it provides the AJGA an opportunity to recognize and provide opportunities to golfers who might not have had a chance to play in an AJGA event.
The 49th annual Pepsi Little People’s Golf Championships, for boys and girls ages 3 through 18, will be played June 20-22 at two golf courses in Quincy, IL. Throughout the past 48 years, more than 24,000 young golfers have played in Little People’s. Many of them are now instrumental in golf in some way, and a good number are now playing on one of the professional golf tours or on their college or high school teams.
Entry Form and additional information on the 2022 Pepsi Little People’s Golf Championships will be available on February 1 at www.littlepeoplesgolf.com, or call or text Tournament Director Nan Ryan at 217-257-5718.
