The Lawler Junior Tour, which began in 1983, is open to boys and girls 10 to 18 years of age. Its namesake, Bill Lawler, administered each event from start to finish. A former AGA president, Lawler died on July 19, 2021 at the age of 73. 

“Junior golf meant a lot to him,” Patrick Lloyd, GAP Director of Northeast Operations, said. “He would mentor the kids, talk about the rules and etiquette. He was one of the most influential people in our area. He not only was a good player, but instrumental in growing the game.”

The Lawler Junior Tour carries the legacy of its namesake. 

Celebrating Amateur Golf since 1897, GAP, also known as the Golf Association of Philadelphia, is the oldest regional or state golf association in the United States. It serves as the principal ruling body of amateur golf in its region. The organization’s 345 Member Clubs and 110,000 individual members are spread across Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey and Maryland. The GAP’s mission is to promote, preserve and protect the game of golf.
