ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. –– New Mexico men’s golf head coach Jake Harrington will coach Team USA later this month at the 2024 Toyota Junior Golf World Cup. The tournament, which will feature teams from 12 countries, will be held June 18-21 at the Chukyo Golf Club outside of Nagoya, Japan.

Harrington will be coaching at the event for the second time, having also coached Team USA in 2013 when the American squad featured future Masters champion and current World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler.

“I’m extremely excited to go back. Anytime you can represent Team USA as a coach, it’s an incredible opportunity,” said Harrington.

The Toyota World Junior Cup celebrates its 30th edition this year. Team USA has won nine boys’ titles, last coming in 2017.

The 2024 boys field includes three-player teams from Argentina, Australia, Canada, Colombia, England, Japan, Mexico, South Africa, South Korea, Sweden, United States and Zimbabwe.
