The depth of amateur golf at the youth ranks is among the best it has been in Massachusetts in quite some time.
Six Bay State golfers are at Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield Township, N.J., this week for the U.S. Junior Amateur, the USGA’s national championship for those 18 and under. It’s the most from Massachusetts since 1995. Only California, Texas, Florida and New York have more competitors at this year’s event.
