The dates are in place for the next installment of one of the world’s leading junior golf competitions, as the tournament committee for the Dustin Johnson World Junior Golf Championship Presented by Fujikura have announced that the sixth annual event will take place March 5-7, 2021 at TPC Myrtle Beach.
“Dustin continues his commitment to creating the best junior golf tournament in the world, and over the past five years we have taken great strides toward achieving this goal,” said Scott Tomasello, Golf Tourism Solutions’ Tournament Director. “The competitive field has reached a level that rates among the best junior tournaments in the country, and with TPC Myrtle Beach once more providing one of America’s premier golf courses to test their games, we’re excited to see what the 2021 edition brings.”
‘Players interested in competing in 2021 may apply beginning Oct. 12 by visiting the event’s website at WorldJuniorGolfChampionship.com. Prospective competitors must apply no later than January 7.
A significant part of the event’s appeal is TPC Myrtle Beach, one of the Grand Strand’s more decorated layouts. TPC Myrtle Beach has hosted the Senior PGA Tour Championship, the General Hackler Championship and the 2020 NCAA Men’s East Regional.
Johnson’s involvement with the tournament reflects his long-time commitment to junior golf, particularly in South Carolina, where he grew into one of the world’s best players. Through the Dustin Johnson Foundation, which is headquartered at the Dustin Johnson Golf School, Johnson has donated more than $450,000 to junior golf, sponsoring numerous events throughout the state and helping cover golf expenses for kids who need financial assistance.
The Dustin Johnson World Junior Golf Championship Presented by Fujikura is also sponsored by Adidas, RBC, Hambric Sports Management, TaylorMade, Revels Tractor, the Dustin Johnson Foundation, the Dustin Johnson Golf School, Founders Group International, Golf Tourism Solutions, and TPC Myrtle Beach.
