Players will have the opportunity to represent their state at the Hurricane Cup being held at Sea Island, Georgia. The top 10 players from each state are selected based on their points standing to compete in this elite tournament. Throughout the year players will have the opportunity to earn points at each HJGT event. The HJGT and RMG will work together to promote the events in order to maximize the competitiveness of each event’s field.
This HJGT has produced over 2,500 collegiate golfers who have signed letters of intent at over 200 universities and plays a vital role in promoting junior golf throughout the country. Playing on the nationally accredited tour will give all juniors an opportunity to gain nationwide exposure through multiple ranking systems including the National Junior Golf Scoreboard (NJGS), the American Junior Golf Association (AJGA), and the Golfweek/Titleist Performance Index, among others.
The Hurricane Junior Golf Tour (HJGT), through the hard work of Executive Director Mario Conte, has developed into a national-elite opportunity for junior golfers at a competitive level at only the top venues in the United States. The HJGT has a golden reputation as one of the most prestigious golf tours in the country because of its superior competition, high quality venues, state of the art technology, highly-trained staff, exclusive social media & public relations, developed pace-of-play policy, attentive customer service, and quality course set up and course markings.
Red Method Golf has programs for those wanting to improve all skills relating to playing, parenting and/or coaching golf. Red Method Golf is rooted in the belief that golfers are not born but are developed. "The agreement between RMG and the HJGT makes sense on many levels," said Bart Whitney, President of Red Method Golf. "Both companies have a mission to develop the next generation of competitive golfers and support their families. Red Method Golf members work hard to improve their skills and abilities on and off the course and seek well run events at excellent venues. HJGT puts on great events in the markets where Red Method Golf operates. The expansion plans of both companies are aligned from a geographical standpoint as well as serving players through the college ranks.”
"As soon as the dialogue started, we knew there was the potential for a good fit," continued Whitney. "Families have a lot of options. At times there are so many choices that it can be confusing and even frustrating. Red Method Golf has a process to navigate the world of junior golf and the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour fits well into that process.” Red Method Golf creates a coordinate effort among the players support team and provides a logical approach that helps players achieve goals and overcome those situations which typically derail others.
