July 30 was an incredible day for our juniors when the SCGA Amateur Championship Clinic took place at Rolling Hills CC.
The event aimed to bring together SCGA Junior participants and elite amateur and professional players in a unique experience that marked the kickoff of the 124th SCGA Amateur Championship, which is the second longest, continuously contested amateur championship in the country with a star studded list of past champions that includes Tiger Woods, Beau Hossler, Patrick Cantlay and Sahith Theegala.
The afternoon included a lively Q&A session with Michael Block, PGA, skills demonstrations and an alternate-shot competition. One of the featured coaches who was also a participant in the championship, Greyson Leach, ended up winning the SCGA Amateur later in the week, setting the all-time scoring record (-21) in the process. It was a memorable and engaging experience for over 40 young juniors and a community builder for the SCGA. For a complete photo gallery, please click here.
