Points Challenge Overview

Points Challenge Overview

PREP & MEDALIST LEVEL POINTS CHALLENGE OVERVIEW

At all Medalist Level tournaments, points will be awarded to the top 20 finishers and ties in the Boys 15-18 and Girls 15-18 divisions. For all other age divisions at Medalist tournaments, points will be awarded to the top 15 finishers and ties.

At all Prep Level tournaments, points will be awarded to the top 15 finishers in the 7-10 age divisions only.

Each tournament series (Spring Series, Summer Series, and Fall Series) of the NTPGA Junior Tour will have its own Points Challenge.

Any points earned within an age division will stay in that age division for the entire tournament series. This means that if you have a birthday which causes you to move to an older division, your points do not carry over with you. Should you earn a qualification or exemption of some kind with the points from your previous division, that will still be honored, you will just need to compete in the new age appropriate division.

Any points earned within an Area will stay in that Area because each has it’s own unique Points Challenge. For example, a player in the 13-14 age division who plays in a Summer Series Medalist Level event in Midland and another in Dallas, has earned points in both the Metro and West Texas Areas Summer Series Points Challenge.

The following is the breakdown of the point distribution for each age division at each NTPGA Junior Tour event:

1st place – 250

2nd place – 200

3rd place – 175

4th place – 150

5th place – 125
6th place – 100

7th place – 90

  • Points for $60 Medalist events will be increased for each place by 50%.

A player’s standing in the Prep or Medalist Level Points Challenge will be determined by the total points accumulated from the tournaments in which they participate. Example: A player has earned 575 points in the Prep or Medalist Level Points Challenge by playing in four (4) tournaments and recording a 1st place finish (250 points), 4th place finish (150 points), 5th place finish (125 points) and 12th place finish (50 points).

Points earned during each tournament series will be used to establish invitee lists and exemptions for Championship events, as well as determine the Points Challenge winner for each tournament series.


ALL AMERICAN TOUR POINTS CHALLENGE OVERVIEW

The All American Tour Points Challenge will run for the entire 2017 season, and players are eligible to earn points at each All American Tour event in which they compete. This Points Challenge will be conducted separately and stand alone from all other Northern Texas PGA Junior Tour events and Points Challenges.

Points will be awarded to the top 10 players and ties in each age division. If there are more than 20 players in an age division at a tournament, points will be awarded to the top 1/2 of the total number of players and ties in that division. For example: If there are 26 players competing in the Boys 15-18 division at a tournament, points will be awarded to the top 13 players and ties. If there are 14 players competing in the Boys 15-18 division at a tournament, points will be awarded to the top 10 players and ties.

Any points earned within an age division will stay in that age division for the entire year. This means that if you have a birthday which causes you to move to an older division, your points do not carry over with you. Should you earn a special tournament exemption of some kind with the points from your previous division, that exemption will still be honored, however you will need to compete in the new age appropriate division.

The following is the breakdown of the point distribution for each age division at each All American Tour event:

1st place – 250

2nd place – 200

3rd place – 175

4th place – 150

5th place – 125
6th place - 100

16th – 20th place - 25

21st – 30th place - 20

31st – 40th place - 15

A sudden death playoff will be used to determine 1st place only. Points for all other places will be distributed equally amongst all ties. 

A player’s standing in the All American Tour Points Challenge will be determined by the total points accumulated from the tournaments in which they participate. Example: A player has earned 600 points in the All American Tour Points Challenge by playing in four (4) tournaments and recording a 1st place finish (250 points), 3rd place finish (175 points), 5th place finish (125 points), and a 12th place finish (50 points).
