Two area high school golfers are traveling to Scotland to compete in the Scotland Junior Golf Invitational.

Badger's Austin Mariani and Cardinal Mooney's Rocco Turner.

Mariani, who's heading into his senior season, was a state qualifier last year.

Turner recently graduated and will join the Youngstown State men's golf program in the fall.

In 2022, Turner won the Ohio Division III individual state title while earning first-team all-state honors

The pair were chosen as part of a team of 24 American golfers to compete against a team from Scotland.

The tournament begins June 23 and runs through July 2. They'll play six rounds of golf between St. Andrew's and Carnoustie, some of the most historic golf courses in Scotland.

Mariani and Turner leave for Scotland Sunday, June 23.
