Polo Golf Junior Classic Fields Four From DC Metro Area

November 20, 2009 by  

The 2009 Polo Junior Classic will be held November 21 through November 27, 2009.  This year’s tournament is being played at PGA National Resort and Spa ~ Champion and Haig Courses located in Palm Beach Gardens, FL.  The tournament field consists of 156 of the absolute best junior players in the world.  Players from 11 countries and 24 states are in the field.  This tournament is the big daddy of junior tournaments.  One needs only to look at previous results and champions to figure that one out.   

The DC Metro area will be well represented.  In the girls division, Kaitlyn Rohrback of Crofton, MD, will be looking to cap a successful 2009 season.   She attends Archbishop Spalding High School in Severn, MD and recently signed a National Letter of Intent with the University of Tennessee (the team finished the fall season ranked 6th by Golfweek).  Her resume includes two AJGA wins in 2009, one win last year and seven top-10s in other AJGA events.  She was named Golfweek’s Player of the Week after her second win this year.  She also competed in the 2009 U.S. Womens Amateur Championship. 

On the boys side, there are three heavyweights from the DC Metro area.  Sean Bosdosh of Clarksburg, MD.  He is a home-schooled senior who qualified for this year’s US Junior Amateur Championship.  He is currently ranked 41 in the Polo Golf Rankings.  Most recently, Sean placed second at the AJGA’s Woodward Video Junior.  He also has two other top-10s in 2009.  As well, he placed 2nd in this year’s Frank Emmett Schoolboy, bested only by another Polo Classic player, Denny McCarthy.

Denny McCarthy, of Burtonsville, MD is a junior at Georgetown Prep.  Denny won just about everything in his path this year.  You can read more about his year in another DC Metro Junior Golf article here

Ji Soo Park, of Centreville, VA, is a junior at Chantilly High School.  Ji Soo was the medalist at this year’s North Region High School Championship and placed 3rd at the AAA State Championship.  In AJGA events this year, he placed 4th twice and also has a 7th place finish.  He also added a 4th place finish at the 2009 Virginia State Golf Association Junior Amateur Championship. 

The event begins with practice rounds on Saturday and Sunday.  Competition begins with 18 holes of stroke play on Monday and another 18 holes on Tuesday.  The top 32 players from each division (Boys and Girls) will advance to match play.  Two rounds of match play will be played on Wednesday.  On Thursday, match play quarterfinals in the morning and the semifinals will be held in the afternoon.   Friday morning brings the match play finals.
