dESCRIPTION OF THE TOUR:
The Summer Tour is a five-week tournament series open to any junior golfers ages 6–18 (age as of 8/5/19) who want tournament-playing experience. Players don’t have to play all five weeks (they can play in only one if they want to), but they need to complete at least three tournaments to be eligible for end-of-tour awards. We will award the champions of each division (top five places plus ties)* at the banquet on July 25. Champions will be invited to the A. Downing Gray Cup at Pensacola Country Club, August 5–6, with registration fees PAID by the GPJGA. (*There is NOT a division at A. Downing Gray for 9-hole age 14-18 or 18-hole “one-day only” players).
Description of Divisions:
The Future Masters Division: For Boys and Girls ages 6–18. This division is for “new and developing” golfers. Ages 6–7 will play six holes per tournament. Ages 8-18 will play nine holes per tournament. (Based on age on our before our season championship on August 5, 2019). Each junior must participate in his or her age group with exceptions to play “up” a division only approved by the GPJGA Committee. Medals are awarded weekly for 1st-3rd place in each age division for boys and girls. One caddie is allowed in this division. However, “coaching” should take place at the warm-up areas, not during tournament play as it can negatively affect pace of play. Penalties will be assessed to a player if a player is not keeping up with their group and slowing down play, especially if this is happening due to excessive “coaching” by a caddie.
The Junior Masters Division: For Boys and Girls ages 6-18. This division is for the more advanced junior golfers. No caddies allowed. All USGA rules apply. Golfers play a two-day tournament. For round one, all players are combined into one open flight (based on gender not age). Groups will re-pair for round two based on day-one results. All ages play the same tees, under the same conditions of competition under USGA Rules. Golfers must have a proven record of ability to consistently shoot under the maximum score of 54 for 9 holes to play in this division (108 for 18 Holes). During their first tournament, the golfer must meet the cut line of 54 to proceed to back nine. They will receive one more attempt on day two if they don’t make the cut. If this score is not accomplished within the first two attempts, the golfer will be placed in the 9-hole Future Masters Division. 54 plays, 55 stays. EApprox. yardages for Boys: 6,000-6,500 yds/Girls: 5,000-5,500 yds. Trophies are awarded for 1st-3rd place after the final round each week.
The Junior Masters One-Day Option: Golfers may opt to play in only one day of each two-day tournament round. For example, the golfer may opt to play only on a Monday–or on a Tuesday. Medals are awarded for lowest 18-hole scores (first through third place–including ties). NOTE: Only completed 36-hole results will be used to determine Summer Tour Awards and only completed 36-hole results can be posted to Junior Golf Scoreboard (i.e., If junior opts to only play on Monday OR Tuesday (not both days), their results cannot be posted to the Junior Golf Scoreboard and will not be used to determine end-of-tour awards (including qualifying for A. Downing Gray Cup).
