14-YEAR-OLD CLEMENTE STEPS UP TO THE BIG STAGE
Gianna Clemente earned one of the two sponsor invites to play in the Twin Bridges Championship this week. The 14-year-old will tee it up in Albany, New York as the youngest player in the field.
“When I found out I got the exemption, I was really excited,” said Clemente. “I’m really excited about this week, to see the course and have some fun.”
The Floridian plays on one of the biggest junior golf tours, the American Junior Golf Association. Currently No. 6 in the Rolex AJGA Rankings, Clemente has five top-10 finishes on the 2022 season, including solo third at the K.J.

Gianna began playing golf at the age of 2 and competitively at the age of 5. Coming from a golf family, with both her father and uncle playing collegiate golf, she has always been at home on the course. Gianna loves all aspects of the game, especially tournament play.
While she has experienced much success, she is also grateful for many things the game has brought to her life. An abundance of family time, travel and meeting new friends across the county and experiencing playing with other youth from around the globe are just a few of the benefits of this sport. Her current goals include playing collegiate golf and possibly continuing on as a professional. Her golf role models include Lexi Thompson, Ryann O’Toole and Gerina Piller.
Gianna has been featured on the Golf Channel on 2 occasions:
- The Junior Honor Roll
- Interviewed following her qualification at Oakmont for the DCP finals to be held the Sunday before the Masters 2017.
She was also featured in a Junior Spotlight in the Junior Golf Magazine in December of 2015.
