That ANNIKA Invitational USA was the first event founded by Annika in the Foundation’s series of global events. The inaugural edition was hosted in 2009 in conjunction with the American Junior Golf Association and has since won six AJGA awards, including Invitational of the Year in 2010.
The event annually brings together 72 of the top players from around the world and attracts 50+ college coaches who are seeking their next wave of talent. The 2016 championship included players from 14 states and 16 countries, 26 of which were Rolex Junior All-Americans.
“Being able to bring together the best girls from all around the world is a true pleasure for me,” said Annika. “I continue to be amazed by the talent of the girls and it’s especially rewarding to be able to share knowledge that I’ve gained over the years as they embark on their golf and professional careers.”
