PING Junior Masters events sign-up criteria: The PING Junior Masters events will have a 1-week priority window sign-up, based on Junior Golf Scoreboard (JGS) rankings. Boys in the top 1,000 in JGS rankings and girls in the top 600 in JGS will be able to sign-up in the priority window, beginning December 10th (Note: ONLY AZ residents can sign-up in the early window. Outside AZ residents can sign-up but they will be put on the waitlist, until December 17th).
Boys outside top 1,000 and girls outside top 600, can still sign-up on December 10th, but will be put on the waitlist. On December 17th, we will fill the field with boys in the 1001-3500, and girls in the 601-1500, in Junior Golf Scoreboard rankings. Boys above 3500 and girls above 1500 will be put on the waitlist until the event deadline.
Boys and Girls 10 & Under Divisions: Boys and Girls in the 10 & Under Divisions will be allowed caddies in JGAA events. Only 10 & Under Divisions will be allowed to have caddies.
Junior World Qualifier #1 in spring: One of our two IMG Junior World Qualifiers will now be in April. This will allow juniors that qualify more time to plan their travel to the championship in San Diego. Number of qualifying spots for this Qualifier will be posted in 2019. We will also have a 2nd Qualifier in June 2019 which will be the Mesa City Junior.
Yardages: Boys and Girls Championship Divisions, in Open and PING Junior Masters events, will have increased yardages when applicable. Total yardage range, as well as hole by hole yardage, will be posted on each event micro-site.
2019 Rules of Golf: There are MAJOR changes to the Rules of Golf for 2019. The JGAA will be sending emails and posting on our social media channels the major changes. Rules clinics will start in late February / early March, and will be conducted through the end of May. The clinic attendance will be mandatory to participate in summer 2019 events. We will also have a Rules quiz which juniors must take and pass before summer 2019 events.
We look forward to having you participate in 2019 JGAA Tournaments. If you have any questions please let us know!
Membership for 2019 and sign-up for January and February events will open on December 10th.
