Imperial is proud to be a major partner of the 2022 Junior Presidents Cup, set for September 18 – 20 at Myers Park Country Club.
The Junior Presidents Cup is a two-day, team match-play competition featuring 24 of the world’s top junior boys 19 years old and younger – 12 from the United States and 12 from around the world, excluding Europe – that takes place just days before the start of the biennial Presidents Cup. The Junior Presidents Cup was developed by the AJGA and PGA TOUR to give the world’s best non-European juniors a unique playing opportunity to compete in an international team match-play competition and showcase the global reach of junior golf.
We are very proud to be the ‘Official Headwear of the AJGA’ and a major partner of the 2022 Junior Presidents Cup at Myers Park Country Club. These junior golfers represent the best in the game both in the United States and Internationally. Their passion for excellence and drive to compete on a global stage is extremely admirable, and we are looking forward to supporting this world class team event.David Shaffer, Senior Vice President of Sales
