Qualifications for
Boys Junior Americas Cup

For selection of Wyoming's 2018 Junior America's Cup team, the Wyoming State Golf Association has established a Boys Junior America's Cup selection committee.

The committee will review, and select junior golfers to represent the Wyoming State Golf Association at the Junior America's Cup each year.

While there is no specific criteria, junior golfers that would like to be considered for the Junior America's Cup are encouraged to participate in as many competitive events as possible.

Junior golfers should strongly consider:

  • WSGA men's and junior events, National Qualifiers (Ex: USGA and Junior World), National Tournaments (Ex: AJGA tournaments)
  • Regional events (Ex: Rocky Mountain Junior Tour).

Tournament scores, and how a player conducts themselves at these events will be of the utmost importance to a players selection.

To ensure the selection committee is informed of a players tournament results, each player is encouraged to email a tournament resume to Matt Ebzery at:

matt@cypressmgmt.com

The Junior America's Cup Selection Committee is comprised of the following members:

David Snyder
Executive Director of the Wyoming State Golf Association
Joe Jensen
University of Wyoming Head Men's Golf Coach/Director of Golf
Rolf Peterson
Wyoming State Golf Association, Board President
Matt Ebzery
