For the fourth straight year, top California female junior golfers were paired with LPGA legends for an inspirational round of golf on Monday, March 30 as part of ANA Inspiration week at Mission Hills CC in Rancho Mirage. This year, Haley Moore of Escondido (pictured) fired a 5-under-par 67 to with the ANA Inspiration Champions Junior Challenge, earning a sponsor’s invitation to play in the 2015 ANA Inspiration, one of the LPGA Tour’s five major championships, April 2-5.
The juniors participating in the ANA Inspiration Champions Junior Challenge will be chosen by a selection committee led by SCGA Youth on Course, which will also supply tournament administration and communications support for the event. The event will be played on the Arnold Palmer Course.
“It is an honor to again partner with the SCGA on such a unique event,” said Tournament Director Gabe Codding. “In the 43-year history of the Championship, 33 women have emerged as champions, 12 of whom are World Golf Hall of Fame members. Giving girls the chance to meet and be mentored by the former LPGA winners is something really special.”
