JJ Gresco on U.S. 2013 Evian Junior Cup team
J. J. Gresco of North Scottsdale was selected to represent the United States in the 2013 Evian Junior Cup which took place on September 17-18 in Évian-les-Bains, France. He was one of only two boys, along with two girls, named to a 4-player United Stated junior golf team which played against 15 other countries in this international competition that immediately followed the Evian Championship, which is a professional tournament.
The national selections were made by the American Junior Golf Association per its Polo Rankings, and were only open to players with 1999 (or later) birthdates as of the selection date several months ago. Notable boys who have been selected and participated in this event in past years include Jordan Spieth (in 2007) and Brad Dalke (in 2011). The other boy who joined J. J. on the 2013 United States team was Varun Chopra (Illinois), and the two girls were Mika Liu (California) and Elizabeth Wang (California).
The 2013 United States team was victorious.
