Performance Based Entry

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

Starting in 2022, Performance Stars will no longer be deducted when a member gains entry to an Open or Junior All-Star Series tournament field. Previously, 4 earned Performance Stars (Open tournament) and 1 earned Performance Star (Junior All-Star Series tournament) were deducted when a member gained entry.

This change is an overall simplification to the AJGA Performance Based Entry (PBE) System allowing a member’s priority for entry to be determined based on their amount of Performance Stars earned in the current and previous year combined with their membership Performance Star(s).

A player’s PBE status will continue to be calculated on a two-year cycle. For example, a player will start 2022 with earned Performance Stars from 2021 and their membership Performance Star(s) from 2022. They can continue to earn Performance Stars through 2022. At the beginning of 2023, all Performance Stars from 2021 will be dropped.
