Juniors dig deep for gold in Cleveland

A group of Houston juniors competed in the Cleveland Midwest Gold tournament last weekend. This is one of the highest tier of junior tournaments behind only the Junior Championship Tour and National Championships. Gold tournaments give the opportunity for competition with some of the best players in the country, as well as valuable national ranking points.
