The competition brings together an elite international field of 17 teams of the top four boys representing 12 western states, 2 Canadian Provinces and Mexico competing in a team format. Team results are based on the lowest three gross scores of the four team members.

Many former participants have gone on to become successful Tour players, and its likely many of this year’s participants will follow in the footsteps of other famous JAC alumni such as Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Fred Couples and Corey Pavin. Other notable participants include Ricky Barnes, Notah Begay, John Cook, Jason Gore, Charley Hoffman, Peter Jacobson, Steve Jones, Anthony Kim, Joel Kribel, Casey Martin, Billy Mayfair, Ryan Moore, Kevin Na, Pat Perez, Chris Riley, Scott Simpson, Duffy Waldorf and Mark Wiebe.

The Southern California PGA Junior Tour selects 4 individuals every year to participate in the Boy’s Junior America’s Cup. Individuals are selected on a number of criteria including their playing ability, overall character, participation in the SCPGA Junior Tour, etc. The selected team members are led by a SCPGA Junior Tour staff member as their team captain.

The Mary Cave Cup is a 36-hole, four-ball event with trophies being awarded to the top 2 teams. Established in 2004, the event is named in honor of Mary Cave who was a dedicated volunteer of the SDJGA for almost 50 years.

The Hogan Cup 36-hole team matches pit the best junior golfers from the Western United States and Canada against each other in a team format with the three lowest scores each day determining the team total. Medals are awarded to the top three teams as well as the top three individuals in the field. The event began in 1969 in commemoration of the vast achievements and contributions to the sport by Eddie Hogan, their long-time head golf professional who served the club from 1939 until his tragic drowning death in 1968. At its inception, the competition was between the Portland Metro All-stars and junior golfers representing the rest of the region. Hogan, an Oregon Amateur champion and PNGA Amateur Champion, was credited for transforming the role of the golf professional, developing what is now considered the standard for the green grass pro shop.

Being selected to compete in Hogan Cup matches is an honor that has been bestowed to few individuals, and the excellence of past participants is indicative of the quality of the small, select field. The Southern California team has won the event 12 times.
