SOUTHERN PINES, NC (December 8, 2020)—The Tarheel Youth Golf Association (TYGA) and the Carolinas Golf Association (CGA) will announce the 2020 North Carolina Junior Players of the Year and North Carolina All-State honors on January 7, 2021 to those who have established themselves as the state’s best junior golfers during 2020.

The All-State teams will include 10 boys and girls on the first team, 10 boys and girls on the second team and 10 boys and girls on the third team. 
 
The following criteria must be met to be eligible:
 
  • Must have played a minimum of five TYGA rankings events in 2020.
     
  • Must be 18 years of age or younger as of December 31, 2020.
     
  • Must not have started college.
     
The all-state awards will be determined by a combination of each player’s scoring differential and the total points earned in the rankings events.
