Tournament Storylines

Champion Returns
Nick Carlson of Hamilton, Mich., returns to the Randy Wise Junior Open looking to defend his 2012 victory. Carlson won last year's event after moving up the leaderboard from seventh to first during the final round and edging Ryan Jahn of Jupiter, Fla., in a four-hole, sudden-death playoff. Should Carlson successfully defend his title, he would become only the third player to win the Boys Division in back-to-back years. The only other players to accomplish this feat were Henry Do (2010, 2011) and Phil Mickelson (1987, 1988).
A track with history
Warwick Hills Golf & Country Club hosted its first PGA TOUR event in 1958 with the inaugural Buick Open. Over the span of 51 years, the pristine venue hosted PGA TOUR professionals each year, seeing champions in AJGA alums Tiger Woods (2002, 2006, 2009) and Jim Furyk (2003).
Juniors to continue careers in Michigan
Twelve juniors in the field have chosen to continue their golf careers at universities or colleges in the state of Michigan. Charlie Green of Ann Arbor, Mich., and Francesco Ruffino of Bloomfield Hills, Mich., have signed National Letters of Intent with Michigan State University, while Jacqueline Setas of East Lansing, Mich., has verbally committed. Future Wolverines include signed commit Reed Hrynewich of Muskegon, Mich., and verbal commit Megan Kim of Redondo Beach, Calif.
