Starburst Junior Golf Classic


“Who’s got next,?” is a term usually heard when one refers to who’s playing next in a pick-up basketball game. Not here. In the Oakley golf world we already know who’s got next, Rory McIlroy, with multiple PGA tour wins globally and being seeded as the No. 1 golfer in the world he’ll be holding it down for quite a while to come. This doesn’t stop the infinite quest of securing a golf hero for the future.

Fast forward to today and the future is now.

The 14th Annual Starburst Junior Golf Classic has positioned itself as one of the premier international events for junior golf hopefuls. Extended over a few challenging layouts in central Texas, one venue, Waco’s Cottonwood Creek Golf Course partnered with Oakley to provide the ultimate proving ground for these dedicated youngsters.

Tournament participants and families were provided with eyewear and apparel education by the boys of the Rolling O Lab, designed for them to understand the need to dominate distraction. Outfitted with eyewear that eliminates stress and fatigue and apparel that wicks away the Texas humidity, distraction blew away in the windy conditions.

Blown away we were! Matt Prieskorn, (Boys 12) from Texarkana, TX and Jacob Bradley (Boys 13) from Woodlands, TX scored a hole-in-one from 95 and 269 yards respectively!

Following in Rory’s footsteps, the golfing youth of today realize the necessity of being dedicated to purpose beyond reason. With this understanding coupled with relevant product education they were ready to conquer the links with one goal in mind: Winning.
