The Junior Golf Tour of Asia is proud to announce that the Asian Tour has officially given its endorsement to the JGTA.
“The Asian Tour has been at the forefront of the development of professional golf since its inception and we are proud to align the JGTA alongside the Asian Tour” said Kyi Hla Han, JGTA Tour Founding Director.
“The JGTA provides a pathway for Asian Juniors to pursue their dreams of competing collegiately and moving on to become professional golfers and World Champions, and for many of these players, the next step after college is working towards competing on the Asian Tour, and other major tours around the world.”
The JGTA is the sanctioning body in Asia for American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) Performance Based Entry (PBE) Status, and represents the series of tournaments throughout the region, where players can build their AJGA PBE Status through their final standing on the Junior Order of Merit, the Official Ranking of the JGTA. The AJGA is the gold standard of junior golf and it is the focal point for college coaches recruiting efforts.
The endorsement of the JGTA from the Asian Tour will further the two organizations’ similar missions of growing the game and developing golf in Asia. As an endorser of the JGTA, the Asian Tour believes in the mission of the JGTA and directly plays a role in supporting junior golfers dedicated to the pursuit of an AJGA, University, and professional golf career.
Cho Minn Thant, Chief Operating Officer, Asian Tour said: “The Asian Tour is pleased to support the initiatives of JGTA. We share a common vision of unearthing promising talents and we look forward to be their platform where they will continue to develop their game as their careers progresses.”
