WGA Jr. Points System

UPDATED ELIGIBILITY & POINT ALLOCATIONS FOR 2021

Eligibility: To be eligible for WGA Junior Player of the Year, a competitor must be a member of a WGA member club and must compete in at least three (3) local events on the point ranking system during a season, including at least one of the following WGA championships: the Westchester Amateur Championship, the Westchester Open Championship or the Westchester Junior/Boys Championship.

+     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.

It is the responsibility of each player to notify the WGA of top finishes in any national or international event or if they qualify for a USGA event outside of the Metropolitan Area within a practical time period upon completion of the event. Points for other national events will be awarded at the discretion of the Committee.

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