Updated: October 2, 2019

Bellevue High School senior Ian Siebers has been named to the 12-player United States Junior Presidents Cup, a team that will compete at the Royal Melbourne Golf Club in Australia Dec. 8-9 – before the PGA Tour’s Presidents Cup takes place Dec. 12-15.

Presidents Cup competition is between the U.S. and non-European golfers and began in 1994 and is held every other year. This will be the second Junior Presidents Cup for golfers 19 and under who are not enrolled in college.

The 17-year-old Siebers will attend Duke University next year and finished tied for seventh in stroke play at the U.S. Amateur in 2018. Last year he led Bellevue to the Class 3A state golf championship.
