Junior POY Points System

IMPORTANT! It is the responsibility of each competitor to notify the MGA of all top finishes. The MGA may award points for top finishes in regional, national, and international events NOT listed below, as warranted. The final selection of the Player of the Year is determined by the MGA Executive Committee and includes, but is not limited to, the point ranking system.

+     In Open Stroke Play events, points awarded for making the On-site Cut, Sectional and Local Qualifying, and for finishing Low Amateur (+) would be in addition to any other points awarded. 

#     Points for Sectional Qualifying, On-site Cut and “Matches Won” (#) are cumulative.  However, players who finish 10th or better in amateur stroke play events, or winner, runner-up, semifinalist or quarterfinalist in match play events, will receive only the points listed for that position. 

##   Qualifying Medalist Points are bonus points and will be added to any other points awarded.

Note: On-Site Medalist points for events are awarded to the medalist at the championship, not the sectional qualifying round.

METROPOLITAN AREA EVENTS Please make sure you have read the Criteria and Guidelines before computing Player of the Year Points.
