The Golfweek International Junior Invitational will be played for the 19th time this fall. Over the past two decades, the final Golfweek junior event of the year has identified up-and-coming talent, like PGA Tour players Peter Uihlein (2004) and Morgan Hoffmann (2006) and LPGA players Stephanie Meadow (2008 and 2009) and Annie Park (2011).

The event will be played at Hammock Beach Golf Resort & Spa in Palm Coast, Florida, for the first time this year. The 36-hole event will take place Nov. 7-8 with the boys field competing on the Conservatory Course and the girls field playing the Ocean Course.

Fields are limited to 90 boys and 60 girls. Players who are ranked inside the top 200 in the Golfweek/Sagarin, Junior Golf Scoreboard and WAGR rankings will be automatically accepted into the field.
