From “My shot: Why amateur golf, especially the junior game, could emerge from coronavirus stronger than ever”
A possible silver lining to these difficult decisions about tournaments at the global and national level is that local junior events – if held – could see much stronger fields than usual this summer. Competitors are going to want to remain sharp, and playing tournaments within a short drive of home could be their best option. This change of scenery, and perhaps greater opportunities to win, could be beneficial to them, as well. As has been said, there are many things to be learned from playing the back nine with a lead, no matter the competition. Or put another way, winning often can lead to more winning.
