Each AJGA Qualifier consists of an 18-hole round (see definition below). In the rare circumstance that inclement weather is imminent, the committee may reduce the number of holes in the qualifying round. All participants will be notified of any changes before play begins. If the round is not completed, the AJGA must abandon the qualifying round in accordance with the Rules of Golf. Performance Based Entry will be used to determine entry into the tournament field for AJGA Qualifiers which precede AJGA Open & Junior All-Star Series tournaments.
Only AJGA members will be eligible for entry into the tournament field through Performance Based Entry. Priority to gain entry into the tournament field will be based on Performance Based Entry status at the time the AJGA Qualifier is cancelled. All confirmed participants in the AJGA Qualifier will receive one Performance Star and a 50% refund of their entry fee.
In case of a tie at any PBE Status Level, the following tiebreaker will be used:
- Number of AJGA tournament opportunities (excluding AJGA Preview Series) during the current season (lowest to highest)
- Ranking (Rolex AJGA or Junior Golf Scoreboard in that order)
- Graduation Year (oldest to youngest)
- Random Draw
The “round” is 18 or fewer holes played in the order set by the Committee.
