A handful of the world’s best junior golfers will be bound for Los Angeles in 2022 for a new tournament hosted by a PGA Tour star.

On Tuesday it was announced that apparel retailer UNIQLO and the American Junior Golf Association would hold the UNIQLO Adam Scott Junior Golf Championship at River Ridge Golf Club in Los Angeles, Feb. 18-21, 2022.

The AJGA, Japan Golf Association and Golf Australia will team up and select 78 players, ages 12-18, to compete. Scott, a 14-time winner on the PGA Tour and the 2013 Masters champion, will host a discussion and run a clinic with participants.

“It is a great honor to host such a wonderful tournament with UNIQLO, which we have been working with for many years. When I was a junior player, I learned not only the fun of playing golf, but also about other important things in life, such as honesty and respect,” said Scott via a press release. “Together with UNIQLO, we have created a tournament we hope will be a valuable learning opportunity for young people.”
