Performance Based Entry

Step 6: How Entry Into an Open or Junior All-Star Series Tournament Affects Your Status

Open Tournaments

Players who are not Fully Exempt that gain entry into an AJGA Open tournament will use 4 earned Performance Stars.

Example: A player with a status of ten Performance Stars will drop to six Performance Stars upon entry into an Open tournament.

Players who gain entry with four or less Performance Stars will use any earned status and drop down to their initial status received for membership (three, two or one Performance Stars).

Junior All-Star Series Tournament

Players who are not Fully Exempt that gain entry into a Junior All-Star Series Tournament will use one earned Performance Star.

Players who gain entry with just their initial status (performance stars received from membership) do not lose their initial status, but do lose priority in the tiebreaker process for future events.
