The Girls’ Junior America’s Cup golf tournament begins Tuesday at the Del Rio Country Club in Modesto, California.
Butte golfer Tricia Joyce will compete for Team Montana. She qualified for the prestigious tournament — along with the Montana-Alberta Jr. Ryder Cup — by winning the 14-15 age group at the Montana State Junior Championships in June.
Also representing Montana are Kylie Esh of Ronan and Kameryn Basye and Hannah Rosanova of Bozeman.
The opening ceremony for the three-day tournament was held Monday.
The tournament includes teams from Alberta, British Columbia, Mexico, San Diego, Arizona, Southern California, New Mexico, Southern Nevada, Colorado, Northern California, Utah, Hawaii, Northern Nevada, Washington, Idaho, Oregon and Wyoming.
Joyce, who placed second at the 2015 Class A state tournament, will be a sophomore at Butte Central this upcoming school year. She will play in the Montana-Alberta Jr. Ryder Cup Aug. 8-10 in Whitefish.
