Participants announced for CN Future Links Junior Skills Challenge National Event

Golf Canada is pleased to announce the nation’s top 25 scorers who will compete in the CN Future Links Skills Challenge National Event on Sept. 27 at the World Junior Girls Golf Championship at Angus Glen Golf Club in Markham, Ont.

The participants, split into three different age groups, were invited based on their scores from individual Skills Challenge events hosted at local clubs throughout the year by CN Future Links instructors. During the season, live results are available online through the National Leaderboard, allowing juniors to compare their scores against others in the country.

“The objective of the CN Future Links Junior Skills Challenge National Event is to focus on the core skills (chipping, putting, iron play and driving) of the sport and put the spotlight on participants that have achieved the top scores from various events that have happened throughout the season,” said Jeff Thompson, Golf Canada’s Chief Sport Officer. “We look forward to hosting all of these talented young players with our partners at CN.”
