Rob Grube Tabbed Rolex Junior All-American
Oct. 5, 2004
Braselton, Ga. - Stanford freshman golfer Rob Grube (Hinsdale, IL) was named a Rolex Junior All-American by the American Junior Golf Association Tuesday. Grube was a second-team selection.
Grube concluded his junior golf career in grand fashion in May by winning the Thunderbird International Junior against one of the toughest international fields in all of junior golf. Grube's 75-67-68--210 total was good for a one-stroke victory over fellow All-Americans Robert Gates, Jr. and Webb Simpson. By virtue of his win, Grube joins the likes of U.S. Amatuer Champion Ryan Moore and PGA Tour player Casey Wittenberg as champions of the Thunderbird International Junior.
Introduced by the AJGA in 1978, the Rolex Junior All-America Teams annually recognize those players who have established themselves as the world's premier junior golfers. This year's selections distinguished themselves through their outstanding play in 74 national events, 53 of which where conducted by the AJGA.
The teams are comprised of 145 junior golfers, ages 13-19, from 31 states and six foreign countries. These standouts will be recognized Nov. 21, during the Rolex Junior All-America Awards Banquet held at Sea Island Golf Club in Sea Island, Ga.
