Six of the top 15 in the Golfweek/Sagarin junior girls rankings will be in the Orlando area in a few weeks for a prestigious event.

An elite 72-player field has been assembled for the ninth annual ANNIKA Invitational, which will take place at Reunion Resort’s Watson Course in Reunion, Fla., from Feb. 18-20.

This event was the first junior event Annika Sorenstam founded and the 10-time LPGA major champion now hosts junior events globally with the ANNIKA Invitational Europe and the ANNIKA Invitational Latin America also in tow.

Jaravee Boonchat, Golfweek‘s No. 11 and a Duke signee, returns as defending champion in the star-studded field. Current LPGA player Alison Lee won the event in 2012 and would go on to capture the ANNIKA Award Presented by 3M for women’s college golf’s top player two years later.

The invitational is the first girls-only event of the 2017 AJGA season.
