Promoting true global competition among the world’s junior golfers.
The World Junior Golf Series® is an international junior golf tour designed to showcase the best junior players (ages 12-19) on the world stage. The purpose of the WJGS is to develop the next generation of golfers to compete on a global scale while demonstrating honesty, integrity, and honorable sportsmanship. The WJGS is committed to advancing young golfers’ development as both athletes and future leaders.
By participating in sanctioned events, the most diverse and strongest competitors will be motivated to compete with other young golfers around the world. The WJGS provides the highest quality of golf competition and helps to improve the expectations of events for junior golfers.
Global competition gives these athletes experiences that they will never forget, both on and off the golf course. In addition to the competition itself, individual participants of the sanctioned or ranked events will have the opportunity to access resources designed to help them improve and grow as both a competitor and a person. Each event provides valuable experiences that encourage and develop a respect for different cultures and people and helps to motivate the grassroots efforts to grow the game
The mission of the World Junior Golf Ranking® is to promote true global competition among the world’s junior golfers by developing a ranking system based on a player-centric, holistic, and unifying philosophy. The World Junior Golf Ranking® will serve as a way to bring together golf’s governing bodies, federations, independents, and tours to help standardize junior golf on a global scale by creating consistent criteria to define a world-class junior golf event.
The Board uses specific criteria to determine whether the event will be included in the World Junior Golf Ranking®. The number of ranking points will be determined by the quality of the event as it relates to WJGA standards and criteria and the strength and positive influence in the world golfing community.
Participants will be rewarded for consistency of play and participating in multiple tournaments worldwide.
