Junior Golf Hub Attention all junior golfers – Junior Golf Hub, which has nearly 10,000 athletes as members and is utilized by 875 college golf programs, announced a new version of its mobile app. Made for junior golfers, their parents and college coaches, the update helps parents and players track golfers’ growth and development. There are also added tools and education for players on the road to college golf, such as blogs and guides. The app begins with a LinkedIn-style profile for both athletes and college programs. Golfers can then tailor their searchable profiles to include both athletic measurements and academic information as well as utilize the “Find a College” function, filtering to narrow down results of the best fit. College golf hopefuls will receive push notifications when a collegiate program starts following them on the app. www. juniorgolfhub.com.
