2018 WESTERN JUNIOR CHAMPIONSHIP


The Western Golf Association will celebrate the 101st playing of the Western Junior in June when Evanston Golf Club in Skokie, Illinois, hosts the country's oldest national junior championship. The event will be played June 18-21.
 
Since its creation by the Western Golf Association in 1914, the Western Junior has served as a proving ground for future PGA TOUR stars, including past champions Rickie Fowler, Jim Furyk and Hunter Mahan. Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Matt Kuchar also have competed in the Western Junior. The event was not played for several years during World War I and World War II.
