John Dropping was a phenomenal junior golfer whose life ended too soon. This tournament is dedicated to his life and a celebration of junior golf. John began playing golf at the age of 12. A late start by today’s standards but his accomplishments were nothing short of spectacular. In 1964, he was Idaho’s first qualifier and the lowest qualifier in the nation for the U.S Junior Golfers Association according to Golf World Magazine. John Dropping was a graduate of Borah High School and attended the University of Idaho. He won the Idaho State High School Championship two years in a row and played in many men’s tournaments including the McCall and Southwest Idaho Amateur.
