By Abby Liebenthal, AJGA Communications

Less than 12 miles down the road from Colorado Golf Club, home of the 2013 Solheim Cup, are 24 junior golfers: 12 American, 12 European. These young women dream of one day walking down the same fairways as the professional golfers who will tee it up at the premier team event in women’s golf.  

These 24 juniors will represent their countries at PING Junior Solheim Cup, a junior event that mirrors the Solheim Cup. The prestigious field of future collegiate and professional stars hold titles to some of the most prestigious junior golf events worldwide, and they have all arrived in Englewood, Colo., with one common goal: taking home the Cup.
