Formed under the umbrella of the Junior Golf Foundation of the Philippines (JGFP), the TJGL provided almost weekly tournaments to mostly beginner golfers who were hungry to play and learn the game in regular tournaments.
Initially hosted and adopted by public and military courses, the TJGL indirectly also allowed junior golfers whose parents were not members of private clubs a regular venue to play.
The TJGL has almost became a rite of passage for almost every junior golfer in the greater metropolitan Manila to begin their junior golf careers with the TJGL.
At the start of class C (11-12) action, Alta Vista's Wei-yu Gao fired 75 strokes (36-39) to lead followed by Jolo Magcalayo and Ira Alido of TJGL with identical 78s.
Rolando Bregente of Del Monte and Sean Granada of TJGL share the lead in boys' class D (9-10), with 83 strokes each.
