Eleven-year-old Carson Kawasoe of Seaside has been selected to a PGA Junior League Golf All-Star team.

The team will compete against others in Oregon with the opportunity to move on to other states, eventually playing for the national championship.

Kawasoe — son of Astoria golf pro John Kawasoe — has been playing on a junior team coached by Mark Keating of Pumpkin Ridge throughout the summer. The all-star team will continue to play into the fall.

The tournaments work in a scramble format where golfers are scored after three holes, and out of the three sets a winner is chosen. The age limit is 13, with Kawasoe competing against primarily older golfers.
