Players must have competed in a minimum of six Rolex AJGA-ranked tournaments to be eligible for year-end Rolex Junior All-America honors.
AJGA team events (Wyndham Cup, PING Junior Solheim Cup, Junior Presidents Cup, and the Jimmy Walker Challenge only) count, if needed, for the purpose of reaching the six-tournament minimum, but they do not increase a player’s divisor.
All starts in ranked tournaments will count towards a player’s ranking. Any withdrawals, disqualifications, etc., will count as a tournament played once a player begins said tournament. Graduating seniors are eligible for Rolex Junior All-America honors as long as they have met the above criteria.
First Team: Top 12 eligible boys and top 12 eligible girls in the Rolex AJGA Rankings
Second Team: Next 12 eligible boys and next 12 eligible girls in the Rolex AJGA Rankings
Honorable Mention: Next 24 eligible boys and next 24 eligible girls in the Rolex AJGA Rankings
The 2016-17 Rolex AJGA Rankings year, as it relates to naming the Rolex Junior All-America Teams, begins with the 2016 Jimmy Walker Challenge and concludes with the 2017 PING Invitational.
Introduced by the AJGA in 1978, the Rolex Junior Player of the Year award recognizes one boy and one girl who had the most outstanding year in junior golf tournaments at the national level. This player is chosen by a selection committee and typically is one of the top-five eligible finishers in the year-end Rolex AJGA Rankings.
The Rolex Junior Player of the Year selection criteria includes:
The Rolex Junior Player of the Year is an honor which recognizes not only an outstanding athlete but an outstanding, well-rounded individual who has demonstrated a commitment to the goals and objectives of the AJGA and its supporters while being a positive role model for other AJGA members and junior golfers.
The following list includes players who are projected to meet the six-tournament minimum in the current Rolex AJGA Rankings year. Tournaments prior to the 2016 Jimmy Walker Challenge (October 21 – 23, 2016) will drop off the Rolex AJGA Rankings prior to the final selection of the 2017 Rolex Junior All-America Teams. Final selection will be made after the Rolex AJGA Rankings update to include ranked tournaments played October 6 – 9, 2017.
*Please note that due to rounding, players may be listed with the same average point value (In that instance players are prioritized based on the unrounded number).
The American Junior Golf Association is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to the overall growth and development of young men and women who aspire to earn college golf scholarships through competitive junior golf.
