PGA TOUR professional Dustin Johnson has been named the Honorary Chairman of the 2011 Junior PLAYERS Championship presented by TaylorMade-adidas Golf, the American Junior Golf Association announced Wednesday.
 
“We are excited to have Dustin as a major part of the championship,” said Jason Etzen, AJGA chief business officer. “Dustin is one of the top players in the world and we appreciate him giving back to junior golf.”
 
Johnson, an AJGA alum, has claimed four wins since earning his PGA TOUR card in 2008, including back-to-back titles at the 2009 and 2010 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. In 2010, Johnson was chosen to represent the United States in the Ryder Cup, where he bested Martin Kaymer, currently ranked No. 1 in the world, in the final day singles match.
 
“I am thrilled to partner with TaylorMade-adidas Golf and the AJGA,” said Johnson. “The Junior PLAYERS Championship highlights the top players in the world and I am excited to be a part of such a great experience.”
 
Since 2007, The Junior PLAYERS Championship has showcased 78 of the best male junior golfers from around the world. Each year, 18 invitations are extended to the top players from outside the United States, which ensures the 54-hole championship is a competition among the world’s best.
