Upcoming IMG Academy Junior World Qualifiers hosted by FCG TOUR

Posted on Jan 11, 2018

We are proud to host some of the most competitive events in junior golf and thrilled to continue our partnership with the IMG Academy Junior World.  

***The way the qualifying spots work is the Winner of each age division earns the Exemption. If the winner is already qualified then the Exemption will go to the next Non-Qualified Player.  These events are first-class tournament opportunities for junior golfers.  You must qualify in the division you would play in during the IMG Academy Tournament.
