Allyson Mollung is slated to attend the Ryder Cup Junior academy in Florida this July, after she was selected by the New England PGA. She is pictured with Jacy Settles of the regional PGA Junior tour.

The Professional Golf Association of America selected Medford High School junior Allyson Mollung to attend a prestigious golf academy in Port Lucie, Fla., the school said Friday.

Mollung, a varsity team member, will attend the Ryder Cup Junior Academy. An essay she wrote was chosen as the winner by the New England PGA.

ÔÇťAllyson has been a pleasure to coach for the past three years and as a senior next year, I am expecting a great season from her," said Medford golf coach Ray Dyer. "I depend a great deal on Allyson, who sets a great example for the younger members of the team. She will be hard to replace when she graduates."

She will join 81 others from around the country -- 41 boys and 40 other girls -- at the academy, where Mollung will be taught by top golf professionals.

The seven-day program is slated for July, and will cover the intricacies of swing mechanics, strategy, and shot-making, taught by members of the US Ryder Cup, an all-star team of American golfers that compete against players from Europe in an semi-annual tournament.

The 2012 Ryder Cup will be held Sept. 25-30 at Medinah (Ill.) Country Club. Davis Love 3d is the Team USA captain.
