Far Hills, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) – The United States Golf Association stated
on Monday that Flint Hills National Golf Club, in Andover, Kansas, will host
the 2017 U.S. Junior Amateur.

“The USGA is pleased to return to Flint Hills National Golf Club and the
Central Plains region. Flint Hills National has provided a demanding and
competitive test for the best female and senior amateurs and will certainly
identify the top junior amateur player in 2017,” said Daniel B. Burton, USGA
vice president and Championship Committee chairman

Flint Hills national hosted the 2001 U.S. Women’s Amateur. The final featured
a pair of future LPGA Tour players as Meredith Duncan beat Nicole Perrot on
the 37th hole. In one of the best final matches ever, both players had 10
birdies, with concessions, in the tight match.

“Flint Hills National Golf Club is honored to be selected as the host site for
the 2017 U.S. Junior Amateur,” said Jeff M. Johnson, club president. “We look
forward to partnering with the USGA and delivering a world-class venue that
showcases amateur golf and the surrounding Andover and Wichita communities.”

In late July, William Zalatoris defeated Davis Riley, 5 & 3, at this year’s
U.S. Junior Amateur. Riley became the first player in championship history to
lose two finals matches as he also lost 3 & 2 to Scottie Scheffler in the 2013
