High school golf shines at the National Invitational

Published

on

According to the NFHS, there are over 220,000 boys and girls that play high school golf. Playing on your high school team is an amazing experience that often gets overshadowed by the elite junior tournaments and tours such as the AJGA. As a college golf recruiter, I will often get questions from parents asking if high school golf really matters? After following the Inaugural High School Golf National Invitational this past week, I can confidently tell you high school has never mattered more.

Instead of telling you about the competition, take a look at the results below. Any high school boy who can shoot 65-70 in back to back championship rounds from 6,900 yards for a two day total of 135 (-9) and girl who can shoot 72-69 (-3) from 5920 can play the game pretty darn well. The quality of high school golf and scores speak for themselves.

Low scores and tight competition are an understatement for both the boys and girls tournament. The girls from California edged out South Carolina in a two-hole playoff to secure the inaugural women’s team title. The boys from Virginia had an impressive 2nd day to come from behind to win the boys team title. Below highlights the full team leaderboards.

I was really impressed with what the team from the NHSGA pulled off with over 300 boys and girls competing in the championship and securing sponsors like AJGA and Junior Golf Scoreboard. This High School Golf Championship will be important for the high school game for years to come.

The GolfWRX crew are on the ground at this week’s PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando primed to deliver bundles of content to our members from the annual gearhead junkie extravaganza all week long.

On Tuesday, it was the show’s Demo Day from Orange County National Golf Center, and we got an up-close and in-hand look at the latest and greatest in the world of golf equipment. Here’s a recap of what our team got their hands on from Demo Day.

5 eye-catching shots from Demo Day:

Great look at Cobra’s T-Rail iron/hybrid from address.

Callaway’s Mavrik.

A close look at Lamkin’s new Calibrate grips for 2020.

Titleist’s T400 iron.

AmzingCre Golf doing their very unique thing.

Our forums are jam-packed with photographs of all the best that yesterday’s Demo Day had to offer. Here’s what our crew snapped on Tuesday.
