                           TOURNAMENT FACT SHEET

Quick Facts
     The 28th annual Randy Wise Junior Open will be played at Warwick Hills Golf & Country Club for the third
      straight year
     54-hole stroke play event
     96 players from 14 states, Canada and Barbados
     33 players from Michigan will compete
     For the last four years, the Boys Division champion has hailed from the state of Michigan; only one
      Michigan native has won the Girls Division in the event’s history (1986 – Kelly Robbins, Mt. Pleasant)


Tournament Storylines
     Looking for a “three-peat”
      Henry Do of Ypsilanti, Mich., looks to join Phil Mickelson and Sihwan Kim in the AJGA Record Book for
      most consecutive wins at the same tournament (the record is three). Do won both the 2010 and 2011 Randy
      Wise Junior Open and looks to grab his third victory in a row at Warwick Hills Golf & Country Club.

     Back for more
      In addition to Henry Do, five players return after finishing in the top five in 2011. In the Boys Division, Reed
      Hrynewich of Muskegon, Mich., finished third, Max Kollin of Farmington Hills, Mich., finished fourth and
      Joo-Young Le of Hilliard, Ohio, and Bailey Truesdell of Grand Blanc, Mich., tied for fifth place. In the Girls
      Division, Muni He of Pitt Meadows, British Columbia returns after finishing third in last year’s event.

     Historic perspective
      Since the event began in 1985, champions of the Randy Wise Junior Open have gone on to succeed at the
      collegiate and professional levels. Phil Mickelson earned back-to-back titles in 1987-88, while Paula Creamer
      (2001, 2002) and Morgan Pressel (2003) also won during their junior careers.
                                                                                                                        2

About the AJGA
The American Junior Golf Association is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to the overall growth and
development of young men and women who aspire to earn college golf scholarships through competitive junior golf.
The AJGA provides valuable exposure for college golf scholarships, and has an annual junior membership (boys and
girls ages 12-18) of approximately 5,500 junior golfers from 49 states and more than 40 countries. To ensure
scholarship opportunities for all junior golfers who have the skill, the AJGA created the Achieving Competitive

Titleist, the AJGA's National Sponsor, has been the catalyst and driving force behind the Association's success since
1989. Rolex, which is in its third decade of AJGA support, became the inaugural AJGA Premier Partner in 2004. In
2007, after 12 years of support, Ralph Lauren became the AJGA's second Premier Partner.

AJGA alumni have risen to the top of amateur, collegiate and professional golf. Former AJGA juniors have compiled
more than 500 victories on the PGA and LPGA Tours. AJGA alumni include Stewart Cink, Matt Kuchar, Hunter
Mahan, Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods, Paula Creamer, Cristie Kerr, Inbee Park and Morgan Pressel.
