Events and Invitationals: Regular Season Events


BASIC STRUCTURE: Regular season events are generally set up to be 36-hole tournaments of stroke play. There are no cuts. All events are ranked by the National Junior Golf Scoreboard. While most events are started by tee times, some are shotgun starts as needed by weather and course requirements. Individual awards are offered to the top finishers, OJGT Tour points are given to top finishers toward season-ending invitationals. In most events the top three finishers in each divison will receive awards emblematic of their accomplishment for that tournament.

AGE GROUPS:
There are three gender/age groups in most events in the OJGT. They are as follows:

Boys 15-18 Division
Boys 12-14 Division
Girls 12-18 Division

Male players who become 15 years old prior to August 1st of that season must play in the 15-18 boys division for the entire reagular season. This would include the Kickoff Classic in July.

A younger male player may elect to play in the older division for that season. However, once that player elects to play "up" he must remain there through the end of the season.
If a male player elects to play "up" during the season, he or she may not bring points with him that were earned in the lower age group. It is best that if a player wants to play "up" he needs to make that determination before playing the first event.

YEAR END AWARDS: At the end of the season, there are special awards that players may earn in each age division. They are:

Tour All Star Recognition....for those in the top eight in points for the season

Kyle Lewis Stroke Average Champions....for those players who have completed at least four rounds over the OJGT regular season.

POINTS: After each OJGT event and OGA Boys and Girls Championship, points will be awarded to top finishers in each division as shown below. Ties split points and partial points will be rounded up.
