WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) -- They won't compete in the actual tournament, but two junior golfers from West Virginia will play alongside some of the top golfers in the world in two events leading up to The Greenbrier Classic.

Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin says 15-year-old Alex Hamrick and 18-year-old Caleb Lee have been invited to participate in Monday's practice round and Wednesday's pro-am event in White Sulphur Springs. Tomblin made the announcement Saturday.

Hamrick plays on the golf team at Poca High School. Lee recently graduated from North Marion High School.

Both participate in West Virginia Golf Association junior golf events.

The PGA Tour's Greenbrier Classic runs next Thursday through Sunday on the Old White TPC Course.
