The Bubba Conlee National Junior Golf Tournament, one of the MidSouth's finest junior events, is dedicated to the life of James Larry "Bubba" Conlee, Jr. Bubba, one of the best young golfers in the Mid-South, tragically died at the peak of his junior golf career. He was a beloved son, good Christian, fine student, dear friend, and excellent golfer. This tournament is intended to perpetuate Bubba's aspirations and those of other fine young golfers to achieve the best that the great game of golf has to offer.

The Bubba has a rich history of drawing some of the nation's best junior golf talent. The list of former players reads like a Whos Who of junior golf. Past participants include current PGA Tour players Shaun Micheel (2003 PGA Champion), Doug Barron, and Vance Veasey; LPGA players Reilly Rankin and Courtney Wood; and, U.S. Amateur champions David Gossett (1999), Bubba Dickerson (2001), and Meredith Duncan (2001). College coaches realize the strength of the Bubba field as well! Every year dozens of college coaches come to recruit the talented field in The Bubba.
