Tournament officials are delighted to announce that the 2021 Pepsi Little People’s Golf Championships will again be recognized by the American Junior Golf Association (AJGA). Little People’s has been a part of the AJGA recognition system since 987, with the winners and subsequent places in the boys and girls 14-18 and 12-13 divisions receiving Performance Stars. Below are the Performance Stars given for each Division in 2021.
It is important that Pepsi Little People’s is able to offer its golfers in these age groups an opportunity to gain AJGA Performance Stars, as it helps them to build a resume under the AJGA PBE system and helps with possible college scholarships. In addition, it provides the AJGA an opportunity to recognize and provide opportunities to golfers who might not have had a chance to play in an AJGA event.
The 48th annual Pepsi Little People’s Golf Championships, for boys and girls ages 3 through 18, will be played June 21-23 at two golf courses in Quincy, IL. Throughout the past 47 years, more than 24,000 young golfers have played in Little People’s. Many of them are now instrumental in golf in some way, and a good number are now playing on one of the professional golf tours or on their college teams.
