2020 HSJGA Match Play ChampionshipJuly 08, 2020
June 5th, 2020 – The HSJGA is excited to announce a revised schedule for the remainder of 2020. This year has been unprecedented and challenging for many families around the world and especially in Hawaii. Since all major junior national championships and team events have been cancelled, this has left junior golfers with very little on the schedule to compete that enables them to reach their goals and garner interest from college coaches.
The HSJGA Match Play Championship, benefiting the Hawaii Food Bank, will be conducted throughout the month of July and each island will have its own bracket. The HSJGA will officiate and guide each match from a distance to ensure the safety of the golfers and respect the guidelines enforced by each course. Additionally, the HSJGA will challenge its members to raise much-needed funds to be donated to the Hawaii Food Bank to help many Hawaii Families in need.
“We feel that a match play of this nature will accommodate the guidelines around large gatherings while in Hawaii Golf Phase 2 and gives our juniors a great option in competitive golf. We also want to show our support to the local community through golf in these difficult times and that’s where we will have our juniors reach out to their networks to pledge donations for the Hawaii Food Bank. We want to continue teaching youth in Hawaii about the importance of social responsibility and how they can provide a positive impact within their community,” said Matt Rollins, HSJGA Executive Director.
Additionally, this fall the HSJGA will look at conducting Stroke Play Championships on each island in partnership with the local island associations to identify the top junior golfers to qualify for the Michelle Wie Tournament of Champions on Maui in December.
