The San Diego Junior Golf Association founded the Junior World Golf Championship in 1968 to connect young golfers from all parts of the world by providing the youth with a culturally diverse, premier golf experience. In its inaugural year, the event attracted 475 junior golfers from seven countries and 20 states. Today, the tournament has grown to 1250 participants, representing 56 countries and 42 states. The IMG Academy Junior World Golf Championships is now one of the largest international events in the world and is a family affair for most of the young players -- some under 6 years old -- who travel to San Diego from across the globe.
Similarly, the FCG International Golf Championship is now one of the most popular events in junior golf, annually attracting over 600 players from more than 40 countries. Originally conceived as a warm-up event for the IMG Junior World Golf Championships, the FCG is also an event visited by college golf coaches to recruit at.
