San Diego, Calif. (July 11, 2011) – Over the next four days Canada’s top young aspiring golfers will be competing in the prestigious Callaway Junior World Golf Championships on several courses around the San Diego area. This year, Canada will once again be well represented with fifty three outstanding junior golfers representing five provinces.

The Callaway Junior World Golf Championships boasts an impressive history with a strong line-up of previous champions including Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Ernie Els as well as many other PGA and LPGA stars. Since 1968, over seventy countries have been represented and the event annually draws a field of over 1200 junior golfers.   
 
Not only is the Junior Worlds important to all the junior golfers who participate but it's also a big week for college coaches, who use the tournament as a hunting ground for up-and-coming talent. One of the draws for coaches is the large international contingent the Junior World always attracts.
 
With one of the largest contingents, Canada is set to make its mark at this year’s competition. Last year Adam Svensson of Surrey, BC won the crown of the tournament, the Boys 15-17 division. Svensson became the second Canadian in three years to win the tournament.
