Past meets future for Henke-Berg Junior Masters

July 23, 2014
Special to The Breeze , Cape Coral Daily Breeze

Past champions and alumni of the Southwest Florida Junior Golf Association (SWFJGA) are returning to fairways of the Cypress Lake Country Club next week for the 22nd annual Nolan Henke-Patty Berg Junior Masters tournament.

Three-time defending boys' 13-15 division champion Landon Weber, who will be a sophomore at Fort Myers High School this fall steps up to the boys' 16-18 division for this year's event slated for July 30-Aug. 1. In the history of the tournament, Weber is the first to ever record a division sweep. Among the girls, 2012 division champ Brittany Shin returns for another crack at a championship.

Likewise, many association and event alumni who have continued their passion for golf as college, club and tour professionals are returning for this year's tournament, playing in Monday's Pro-Am, which is the SWFJGA's fundraising effort for its scholarship fund.

Among them is current PGA Tour pro George McNeill, who won the first two Junior Masters titles in 1993-94. Joining him in the Pro-Am field are past tour pros Terry-Jo Myers and Nolan Henke. The Pro-Am tees off at 8:30 a.m. on Monday.

The Junior Masters boasts a field of top national junior players ages 13-18 in three divisions - girls, and boys' 13-15 and 16-18 - and the occasional international player. They will play three 18-hole rounds over three days to determine division champions. Players tee off beginning at 7:40 a.m. each morning followed by an awards ceremony after the final round next Friday.
