This Regional featured some pretty special players – some with hidden talents! Take a look at John Welch of the League 8 All-Stars as he recites all 45 Presidents, in order, in under 40 seconds!
On the Suffolk County 2 All-Stars was PGA Jr. League veteran Logan Knipe. Golf Channel’s Morning Drive featured Logan back in 2015 when he was a 7-year-old PGA Jr. League player. Logan was born with two holes in his heart, but that hasn’t slowed him or his love of the game down!
