The Northern Ohio PGA Section Junior PGA Championships are scheduled to take place June 19 and 20 at Shady Hollow Country Club in Massillon.
The champion will have the opportunity to join 144 of the nation's top junior golfers in the PGA of America's premium junior event, the 42nd Junior PGA Championship, which is set to take place at The Country Club of St. Albans (Mo.).
The boys Junior PGA Championship is scheduled to take place July 31 to Aug. 3 and the girls Junior PGA Championship is set to take place July 18-21.
This year's event will have twice the field size of previous years. This means each of the 41 PGA of America sections will receive two invitations: one of the Northern Ohio PGA Section junior champion and the other for a Northern Ohio PGA Section at-large bid.
Juniors must be no older than 18 years of age for boys by Aug. 3 and by July 21 for girls.
