The Moss Hill PGA Junior League Team recently captured the PGA Junior League Team championship, as they finished the season with a 5-1 record to win the title. 'I am so proud of these young athletes,” said Joseph Barr, the head golf professional at Moss Hill Golf Course and head coach of the team. “For most of these kids, this was their first time playing competitive golf and they definitely rose to the challenge. It was also great having some of the older players really help and support the younger ones through the rounds. So it was a great joy seeing these athletes play as a team in an individual sport.' The PGA Junior League, which ran from mid-May to the end of July, is just like a football or basketball team league, but with golf. Twelve kids, ages 6 to13, played home and away competitions against other golf courses in the local area, such as Manowar, Gibson Bay and Canewood golf courses. Each match was played in a scramble format in which three of the Moss Hill kids would play against three kids from the opponent’s team in a total of four matches. In this way, all 12 kids on the team could play. The goal at each event was to win more matches than the other team. Moss Hill played in a total of six events during the season and finished with a 5-1 record to win the league championship. 'This was a great honor,' said Barr, 'because it shows that Moss Hill Golf Course is developing some of the best young players in the Central Kentucky region.'
