Metropolitan PGA Junior Junior Tour members ages 12-18, playing 18 holes, compete for Player of the Year within their own age and gender divisions throughout the summer via points system. Members must play in their own age divisions. 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, and a member must participate in a minimum of three STROKE PLAY tournaments to be eligible for the Player of the Year. Your points are an average your top five point earning events and if you play in less than five it will be a strict average - your total points divided by the number of events you played. For example, if you played in ten events only your top five point earning finishes would be averaged the others are thrown out. However, if you only played in four events those would be averaged normally. 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 2017 tournament season. In championship events, the two tours are combined and points will be awarded based only on age groups regardless of the tour you play on.
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, 2017. If a player would like to request to play in a higher age division, they can make their request to our Junior Golf Committee.
