USGLL National Championship at Traditions at the Glen This Week

Binghamton USGLL team

The USGLL (United States Golf Local League) National Championship is coming back to the Southern Tier this week.

Kid’s (boys and girls 8-14) from all across the country for the 2nd straight year are coming to the Traditions at the Glen Golf Course in Binghamton. It’s a Team Match Play competition. It’s the 4th year for this event and my son, Devon, was on the Binghamton team for the first 3 years.  He’s too old for the competition now but he is helping as one of the official scorekeepers.

This national championship is the vision of Kevin Flanagan from Long Beach, CA and President of the USGLL.  He hopes to one day grow this tournament and have the event be like the baseball Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pa.  Maybe even be broadcast on the Golf Channel.  This is an awesome opportunity to see some of the best young golfers in the country in our backyard.

It’s open to the public and begins today (8/5) and runs through Thursday the 8th.  It starts as a Round Robin with the championship matches on Thursday afternoon. To see the schedule go here.

I told Devon that he was a part of something that will be special someday and no one can take that away.  The Binghamton team finished 2nd in the first 3 years, losing to the Long Beach, CA team.  I told Devon that is nothing to ashamed of and besides they can play all year long.

To find out more what the USGLL is all about and to see what a fantastic event this is, go here. Good luck to all the kids and especially Binghamton.
