Dallas, Texas – The Northern Texas PGA and Southern Texas PGA are pleased to announce the captains for the 4th Annual Ben Hogan Junior Cup Matches, which will take place at Squaw Creek Golf Course in Willow Park, Texas from August 5-6, 2019. The event is an annual competition between the Northern and Southern Texas PGA Junior Tours’ top six boys and top six girls aged 13-18.

The historic Shady Oaks Country Club is the permanent host to the Matches; however, the golf course will be undergoing renovations during this year’s event.

Members from the Northern Texas PGA and Southern Texas PGA teams qualify to compete via All American Tour and Prestige Tour events, respectively.  
  
Serving as captains of the Northern Texas PGA team will be former NTPGA Junior Tour members Caleb Hicks, who plays college golf at The University of Texas at Arlington, and Megan Daleo, who will be joining the SMU golf team in the fall of 2019. The captains of the Southern Texas PGA team will be former STPGA Junior Golf members Will Holcomb, who plays golf at Sam Houston State University, and Ariana Saenz, from the University of Houston’s women’s golf team.
