More great news for Oregon HS players! This year the HS Elite section will serve as Oregon’s Denker Qualifier tournament. Each state may nominate one HS player to compete in the Denker Tournament of High School Champions in Orlando, Florida, July 30-August 2, 2011. The winner of the HS Elite section at Seaside will be nominated as Oregon’s representative to the Denker. Participants in the Denker in Florida receive at least $100 in travel expenses from the organizers. The winner in Florida receives a $68,000 scholarship to University of Texas at Dallas. The event is timed so that players who play in the Denker may also play in the US Open while they are in Orlando.
