|Max DeHaven | Boys 8 & Under: Rounding out the Tour’s 2021 Players of the Year is Max DeHaven, who was a busy bee this season having competed in sixteen tournaments. He won five times, highlighted by a victory in the Lou Perry Tour Championship. Perhaps more impressively, he never finished worse than third in any of his starts. It was a tight race in this division from start to finish as DeHaven and Matthew White were neck and neck all year, but DeHaven ultimately clipped White by 32.5 points to claim this elite award.
“This summer, I learned how to deal with my emotions,” DeHaven divulged. “The best moment of the year was at the Lou Perry Tour Championship when I chipped in for an eagle and then won the tournament with a score of 70 (-2). I know I’m young, but I would love to be on the PGA TOUR when I’m older.”
The Kentucky PGA Junior Tour congratulates each of these players and their families on these awards and thanks them for their participation all season. Each player will receive a new golf bag courtesy of Sun Mountain with the player’s name on the bag thanks to these accomplishments.
This fall, one boy and one girl will be named the 2021 Golf House Kentucky Junior Players of the Year, which accounts for performance in the top local, regional, and national junior tournaments plus prestigious amateur competitions.
The Tour will be focused on the remainder of the high school season for the next month but will also host the Middle School Regionals and Championship on September 18-19 and September 25. One final Kentucky PGA Junior Tour event will be held on October 16-17 at University Club of Kentucky (Big Blue) with the Fall Classic. Registration for that event is available and open to all players.
