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 2024 with earned Performance Stars from 2023 and their membership Performance Star(s) from 2024. They can continue to earn Performance Stars through 2024. At the beginning of 2025, all Performance Stars from 2023 will be dropped.
