OXFORD, Miss. – Incoming Ole Miss freshman Josh Seiple has been selected to compete in the prestigious American Junior Golf Association Wyndham Cup at Old Sandwich Golf Club in Plymouth, Massachusetts, July 7-10.
Seiple, a native of Castle Rock, Colorado, is one of 10 high school males representing the West squad in the 40-person event. He is ranked No. 33 in the Polo Golf Rankings and has posted wins at the 2012 Aspen Junior Golf Classic, the 2013 Jones Cup Junior Invitational and finished tied for ninth at the 2014 Western Junior Championship.
The Wyndham Cup brings together 40 of the nation’s top male and female juniors in an East-versus-West team match play tournament. With the Mississippi River as the division separating East from West, 10 boys and 10 girls from each side are selected based on the Polo Golf Rankings, which reward top finishes in national junior golf events.
“This is a huge honor for Josh, and I am excited for him to represent himself and the Ole Miss Rebels in such a prestigious event,” said Ole Miss head coach Chris Malloy. “We can’t wait for him to join our squad in the fall and showcase his talents on the collegiate level.”
The 25th anniversary of the Wyndham Cup coincides with the 75th playing of the PGA TOUR’s Wyndham Championship. AJGA alumni who have won the Wyndham Championship include Patrick Reed (2013), Sergio Garcia (2012), Webb Simpson (2011), Ryan Moore (2009), Carl Pettersson (2008), Brandt Snedeker (2007) and Davis Love III (2006, 1992).
