Dothan is Ready for the Future Masters

The top junior golfers in the country will converge on Dothan later this month for the 63rd annual Future Masters.

Players will spend a week competing for titles in four age groups at the Dothan Country Club.

This tournament features the stars of tomorrow.

Former participants of the Future Masters have won 12 major championships, including Bubba Watson, who won this year's Masters' title.

Tournament Director Kevin Klein says the competition should be fierce in all four age groups.

"Yup, local kid, Tommy Ponder won it last year in the 10 & under," Klein said. "He's back. Older age group, I want to say three of the top five are back. Ryan Benton, Victor Wiggins, Robby Shelton, all perennial winners here, all back to compete against each other for one of the last times."

Action begins on Sunday, June 24, with the first round for players in the 11-12 and 13-14 year-old age groups.

Three titles will be up for grabs on Tuesday before the 15-18 year-old players hit the course the rest of the week to compete for the overall title.

The Future Masters wraps up June 30, with the championship round in the 15-18 year-old age group.
