About The Florida Sunshine Cup
A group of young Florida golfers, ages 11-14, have joined together for the second annual Florida Sunshine Cup as part of the State Cup Series sponsored by the American Junior Golf Association (AJGA). And they are serious about giving back. Miles Russell, and Graden Lomax are leading this tournament as a way of giving back through the game they love. Collectively, they have won or finished near the top in nearly every major junior golf tournament in the world, including USKids World Championships, IMG World Championships, USKids European Championships, and hundreds of regional, state and local titles.
The tournament playing field will expand to 28 players committed to raising $1,000 each toward a $30,000 goal, with an overall goal in 2020 of eclipsing $50,000. In the inaugural year of 2019, the boys along with Alexander Kaufman who was also a founding member, raised over $48,000! The money will benefit the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation and the AJGA’s Ace Grant Program in 2019. This would not have been possible without the support of all 28 players and their families.
The AJGA’s State Cup Series was created to allow junior golfers to showcase their talents while developing life skills, including charitable giving, leadership, and teamwork.
