The PGA of America today announced the qualification process for the United States Team that will compete against Europe in the 13th Junior Ryder Cup to be held September 23-25, 2025.

“The Junior Ryder Cup continues to serve as an international showcase for golf’s up-and-coming stars,” said PGA of America President John Lindert, Director of Golf at The Country Club of Lansing.

“We look forward to hosting the U.S. and European teams at two incredible venues, and are excited to watch as the best junior golfers across the U.S. earn their place on the team.”

The final U.S. Team points list for qualification will begin at the 2024 Junior PGA Championships, taking place July 30 – August 2 at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Maryland.

The final U.S. Junior Ryder Cup Team will be announced by the PGA of America on Tuesday, August 5, 2025, following the 49th Junior PGA Championships, July 29 – Aug. 1, 2025.

“We are honoured to be a part of this special occasion,” said current Nassau Country Club President, Kerrill O’Mahony.

“Having the best 24 teenage young men and women from the U.S. and Europe come and showcase their skills over our historic links is a great thrill to us as hosts and we welcome them warmly.”

Since 1997, the Junior Ryder Cup has matched the top junior golfers from the United States against the top junior golfers from Europe in a biennial competition that leads into the Ryder Cup.

The international showcase of golf’s next generation is designed to continue to build international friendships among the top junior golfers in the world.

Major champions, PGA TOUR and LPGA Tour players are among the notable Junior Ryder Cup alumni including: Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas, Scottie Scheffler, Tony Finau, Lexi Thompson, Rose Zhang, Yealimi Noh and Brittany Altomare of the United States; and Rory McIllroy, Nicolas Colsaerts, Suzann Pettersen, Emily Pedersen and Carlota Ciganda of Europe.

Nick Dunlap was a member of the 2021 U.S. Junior Ryder Cup team, and recently captured his first PGA TOUR victory at the 2024 The American Express.

Miles Russell, who represented the U.S. at the 2023 Junior Ryder Cup, became the youngest player to make the cut in the history of the Korn Ferry Tour when the 15-year-old shot 5-under 66 on Friday at the 2024 Lecom Suncoast Classic.
