Two junior golfers to play in Nationals


Two Indian-American junior golfers, Parth Kumar (12 years old) from Suwanee, and Sahish Reddy (11) from Duluth are part of a team that will play golf in the PGA Jr. League Championship in Arizona in October.

To get to Nationals, the young golfers first played the Spring/Summer Season, April through July, at TPC Sugarloaf golf club in Duluth. Teams are generally co-ed, with expert coaching from PGA and LPGA Professionals. Kids wear numbered jerseys and play on teams with friends, competing in a two-person scramble format that builds confidence and encourages sportsmanship. While the focus of PGA Jr. League is primarily on the recreational nature of its spring, summer, and fall seasons, the PGA Jr. League Postseason presented by National Car Rental presents competitive golfers a fun and aspirational finish to regular season play, and rewards players who have given their best effort and improved during the regular season. National Car Rental is the Official Partner of PGA Jr. League, and is committed to growing future business leaders by growing junior golf.

TPC Sugarloaf hosted its own league, and their 10-person team, the TPC Sugarloaf All-Stars, ages 13 and under, captured the Georgia PGA Jr. League Section Championship at Legacy at Lanier Golf Course in Buford, Georgia, on August 11, 2019. They then competed against three All-Star teams from Huntsville, Alabama, Orlando, Florida, and Palm Beach Gardens, Florida in the Regional presented September 7-8, 2019 in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, one of the 12 Regionals in the US. Then, as winners there, they have advanced to the 2019 PGA Jr. League Championship, to be held October 11-14, at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona—where the championship has been held since 2016 and will stay through 2022—and will represent their state as Team Georgia.

The TPC Sugarloaf All-Stars team has competed in the Regional competition the last two years, advancing to compete in both the 2017 and 2018 Nationals, and winning the championship title in 2017. This will be the team’s third trip to Nationals. Sahish participated in 2018 PGA Jr. League National Championship; this is Parth’s first go at Nationals.
