Junior Tour members ages 12-18, playing 18 holes or more, compete for Player of the Year within their own divisions throughout the summer via points system. Members must play in their own divisions. There is no minimum number of tournaments one must compete in to be included in the Player of the Year race. Points are cumulative and are based on your top 7 finishes. If you play in less than 7 tournaments your point total will still be the total number of points earned for those events. For example, if you played in ten events only your top 7 point earning finishes would be included the others are not used. If you only play in four events those will be added together accordingly. Any ties in the Player of the Year race will be awarded as such and will not be broken. At the conclusion of the tournament season, the top three junior golfers within each age division will be recognized as Players of the Year for the 2023 tournament season.
The 9 Hole Division is meant to be a non-competitive, learning stage; therefore, points are not awarded. Points are awarded for participation in most Metropolitan PGA Junior Tournaments. Note: If a member has a birthday during the season that would cause a change in age division, read the following rule: Members will play in the age division based on their age as of July 31, 2023. If a player would like to request to play in a higher division, they can make their request to our Junior Golf Committee.
