The USGTF Spring Junior League was operated by the Mercer County Golf Academy in Princeton, New Jersey, this past year and consisted of 60 kids that participated on four teams at four different golf courses in the county. It was directed by USGTF Associate Member professional Larry Baldasari and coached by four additional Associate Member professionals: Kelly Platt, Dan Virgil IV, Dan Virgil III and Haiyan Wang.

Players competed in six matches, playing a two vs. two scramble match-play format. Coach Haiyan’s Purple team won the league title with a record of 4-0-2. The league concluded with a stroke-play invitational on July 16. The winners were Eddy Ye (11-14 age group) and Teddy Plimpton (10 and under age group). For nine holes, Ye shot a 47 and Plimpton a 42 at Princeton Country Club. The season was a major success, and the academy plans on hosting another junior league in the fall.
