Junior Cup Teams

KANSAS-NEBRASKA JUNIOR CUP MATCHES

Every summer the Kansas Junior Golf Association selects a team of eight (8) male junior golfers to compete against their counterparts from Nebraska.  In order to compete on the Kansas team, a junior golfer must be at least 14 years of age and a member of the KJGA.  Then, throughout the summer the junior golfer may compete for Junior Player of the Year points at various tournaments at the local, state and national levels.  At the conclusion of the Kansas Junior Match Play Championship, the top eight available points leaders are invited to represent the state of Kansas against Nebraska.

The first Cup Matches were held at Alvamar Country Club in Lawrence in 1986.  The matches are played like the Ryder Cup, the team members are first paired for four-ball matches and foursome matches on day one.  The second day consists of singles matches.  Each match is worth one point, the team with the most points takes control of the traveling trophy for the upcoming year.  Through the first 31 years of competition, Kansas leads the series 18 to 13.
