became a 4-time winner on the PGA Tour, led Stanford University to a National Championship
and represented his country on the US Walker Cup and US Presidents Cup teams. Notah
developed his skill at the Ladera Municipal Golf Course and played junior golf in his home state
of New Mexico.
The Notah Begay III Junior Golf Tour will be open to boys and girls of all ages, kids can
participate in any of the six divisions: Boys 16-18, Boys 14-15, Boys 13 & Under, Girls 16-18,
Girls 14-15 and Girls 13 & Under. Each local event will send its top performers to the New
Mexico Regional Championship at Twin Warriors Golf Club in Santa Ana Pueblo, New
Mexico. At the Regional Championship, every participant will be just 36-holes away from
advancing to the national championship at the Coushatta Resort in Kinder, Louisiana which will
be broadcast on Golf Channel.
