Hopkins Named Rolex Junior All-American

Oct. 26, 2005

BRASELTON, Ga. — Clemson freshman Luke Hopkins has been named a Rolex Junior All-American by the American Junior Golf Association. Hopkins finished third at the Dunlop Carolina Junior Championship in Greenville, S.C., as well as tied for seventh at the Ringgold (Ga.) Telephone Company Junior Classic. Hopkins completed his AJGA career, which included one victory and nine top-10 finishes, as a member of the Canon Cup East Team. He received the same honor as fellow Tiger freshman David May.

Introduced by the AJGA in 1978, the Rolex Junior All-America Teams annually recognize those players who have established themselves as the world’s premier junior golfers. This year’s selections distinguished themselves through their outstanding play in 70 national events, 54 of which where conducted by the AJGA.

The teams are comprised of 135 junior golfers, ages 13-19, from 29 states and three foreign countries. These standouts will be recognized Nov. 20, during the Rolex Junior All-America Awards Banquet at the Jekyll Island Convention Center in Jekyll Island, Ga.

Former Rolex Junior All-Americans comprise the top players on both the PGA and LPGA Tours. Of the PGA TOUR’s current top-10 money leaders, Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, David Toms, Jim Furyk and Sergio Garcia were all Rolex Junior All-Americans.
