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. Now in its ninth year, the Legends Junior Tour has grown into one of the most prestigious in the country, conducting 12-14 events throughout the year, some of which are highlighted below.
“Winners are different. They're a different breed of cat.” – Byron Nelson. This Texas Legend certainly knew something about winning, having won 11 consecutive tournaments in 1945. The Byron Nelson Junior Championship draws the world's top junior golfers and warrants them an opportunity to live up to the high standards set by one of golf's greatest ambassadors. Celebrating its 14th anniversary last year, the Byron Nelson Junior Championship has quickly become the top invitational junior event in Texas. Held annually at Dallas' Lakewood Country Club, past champions have included Ryan Baca in 2000 and 2001, Justin Fraley, KT Livingston, Charlie Holland, Eric Durbin, Alex Moon, Cody Gribble, Vincent Martino, Ben Arnett and three-time champion Jordan Speith.
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, Golfweek ranking, and nearby 'State Champions. This year the Texas Cup returns to Mira Vista Country Club in Fort Worth.
