The Legends Junior Tour, a joint venture between the Texas Golf Association and the Northern and Southern Texas Sections of the PGA, was established in 2005 under the umbrella of the TGA foundation. By joining forces a tour was created that is the place for top-tier junior golfers to compete, and is unrivaled with respect to depth and quality of the starting fields, as well as providing access to some of the best courses in the state. Junior players, both male and female ages 12-18, who have exhibited the skill level necessary to compete on a more distinguished stage, have the opportunity to compete in professionally managed events conducted by the three leading golf organizations in Texas. In just a few short years, the Legends Junior Tour has grown into one of the largest in the country, annually conducting 20+ competitions across the state, some of which are highlighted below.
The Legends Junior Tour's George Hannon Invitational got off to a great start at Spanish Oaks GC in Bee Cave in 2009. The George Hannon Invitational was the brainchild of the Hannon Cup Society, a group dedicated to the preservation of the character and ideals of George "Coach" Hannon. Hannon is a PGA Professional who is best known for coaching the University of Texas Golf Team to two National Championships and for recruiting such future Hall of Famers Ben Crenshaw and Tom Kite. Earlier this year the Hannon Cup Society asked the Legends Junior Tour to administer an elite junior tournament that would showcase Austin's best golfers and golf courses. This annual event will rotate between some of Austin's finest facilities. The legend of George “Coach” Hannon and his commitment to junior golf will continue to be exemplified through the coming years of the George Hannon Invitational.
The Texas Cup Invitational has become one of the elite junior events in Texas. Participants are invited based on their play throughout the year on the Legends Junior Tour as well as their Golfweek ranking. This year the Texas Cup returns to The Honors GC in Carrollton October 20/21. An elite field of juniors from Texas and the surrounding region will be looking to join a distinguished list of past winners including Drew Allenspach (2005), Rickie Fowler (2006), Devin Miertschin (2007), Jack Lempke (2008), Stratton Nolen (2010), Chandler Phillips (2012) and Max Miller (2014).
