The Minnesota PGA wants to send off the state’s high school senior golfers with a “responsible” way to play in one more tournament.

The organization is hosting the 2020 Minnesota High School Senior Golf Showcase on June 9-10 at Bunker Hills Golf Course in Coon Rapids. A seniors-only boys’ 18-hole individual tournament will be played the first day. A similar girls’ tournament will follow on June 10.
