Junior Golf Tour of Asia Resumes

Bintan Lagoon will host the Junior Golf Tour of Asia.

Bintan Island, Indonesia: The Junior Golf Tour of Asia (JGTA) will recommence next week with the Bintan Lagoon Junior Championship. Presented by Tradewinds Furnishings Singapore, the 54-hole stroke play event will feature top-ranked junior golfers from across the Asia-Pacific.
The three-day tournament (November 28-30) will kick-off the JGTA’s second season and will be the second JGTA event hosted by Bintan Lagoon Resort.
In 2017, champions of the JGTA Bintan Lagoon Junior Championship included college golf signees and recipients of the All-Asia Team honours, American Camille Boyd (2020) and China’s Li Jiakun (2019). Boyd went on to finish first overall on the Junior Order of Merit, the Official Ranking of the JGTA, and the source for AJGA PBE Status in Asia, earning her Fully Exempt status in the American Junior Golf Association (AJGA).
This summer, Boyd took her talent to the AJGA circuit in the US where she finished atop the Girls’ Division in the AJGA Kansas Junior at Buffalo Dunes. She has since announced her verbal commitment to play for the Women’s Golf Team at the University of Washington.
The JGTA is the sanctioning body in Asia for the 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 in the JGTA Junior Order of Merit, the Official Ranking of the JGTA.
For the next three seasons, Tradewinds Furnishings Singapore will be the main sponsor of the event. Kent Tan, Tradewinds Furnishings Singapore, said: “We are excited to align our brand with the Junior Golf Tour of Asia and support Asia’s top junior golfers for the next three years at the JGTA Bintan Lagoon Junior Championship. We look forward to supporting the progress of juniors in working towards playing AJGA and Collegiate Golf.”
