JGTA Announces First Scholastic All-Asia Team Member at JGTA Hong Kong

Every year, the JGTA challenges the athletic performance of its members, naming a select number of exceptional players to the JGTA All-Asia Team, the Tour’s highest honors for performance on the golf course. The JGTA All-Asia Team denotes its members as the top-ranked players on the JGTA and Asia’s leading prospects for College golf. The top-10 boys and top-10 girls that make up the JGTA All-Asia Team are also eligible to receive exclusive playing opportunities and invitations from outside tours.

In addition to the All-Asia Team awards, the JGTA aims to shed light on the importance of scholastic preparation in the recruiting process, and therefore the JGTA names a select few of its junior members to the JGTA Scholastic All-Asia Team, for their year-round display of academic excellence. JGTA Scholastic All-Asia Team selections are based on the following criteria in order of importance:

– SAT (test dates March 2016 and later) and/or ACT test scores
– AP subject test scores
– School leadership and community service

Following the end of the first JGTA season, the JGTA named its first All-Asia Team. One of those exceptional young individuals excels both on and off the golf course in ways that we very rarely see. In addition to excelling in the classroom, this young lady is one of the most competitive juniors on the Junior Order of Merit, she has won a prestigious AJGA award and is a true leader in her community.

It is for these reasons and with great pleasure, that we are able to announce Selina Li of Hong Kong as the JGTA’s very first Scholastic All-Asia Team member.
