Jon M. Pritsch Cup

The Jon M. Pritsch Cup is a Ryder Cup style event that pits twelve juniors from the Philadelphia Section PGA against twelve juniors from the New Jersey Section PGA. Four boys and one girl each represent both the 16-18 age division and the 13-15 age division for each Section for a total of ten players on each team.  The two remaining spots on each side are determined by each Section’s captain, one from the Boys 16-18 age division and one from the Boys 13-15 Division to finalize the twelve player teams.  Each four-ball (4 players in a group) plays two individual matches, worth one point each, while simultaneously playing a four-ball match, also worth one point. There are a total of eighteen points available. The team with the most points will win the Jon M. Pritsch Cup.

The Jon M. Pritsch Cup is played to honor the memory of Jon M. Pritsch who tragically passed away in May of 1991 at the age of 17. Before his passing, Pritsch was recognized as one of the top junior golfers in the nation. To date the Jon M. Pritsch Memorial Fund has raised over $200,000 and given away over 100 scholarships to juniors looking to pursue a career in a golf related field.
