The Northern Ohio PGA Junior Series is a group of tournaments for boys and girls ages 11-19. The tournaments are held at various Northern Ohio sites. These events are designed to offer juniors of all skill levels the opportunity to compete and enjoy learning how to handle the competition of tournament play.

 

Player of the Year point list will determine qualifiers in each age group to play in the Junior Section Championship at Portage CC and the Tour Championship at Club Walden.

 

Juniors can automatically qualify if they are the winner of one of the events leading up to the championships or ranking high in the Player of the Year points list by the Event Deadline. In the case that there are events between the deadline and the Championship itself, a player may still ‘qualify’ by winning the event. NO OTHER EXCEPTIONS WILL BE MADE.

 

Juniors must also be able to average 125 or below to play at the championship. Double points will be issued at the Junior Section Championship and at the Tour Championship.

AJGA PBE STARS FOR JGS 36-HOLE EVENTS

(Event Combinations correlate with JGS Events above):

***ALL EVENT COMBINATIONS ARE PENDING APPROVAL FOR 2020***

Please note that field sizes have an influence on the number of stars for the event. If the field size is too low for the 36-Hole events it may effect the earning of stars for the events in future seasons.

YOU MUST PLAY IN BOTH 18-HOLE EVENTS OF THE SERIES TO HAVE A CHANCE TO EARN STARS. THE LOW SCORER OF THE 36-HOLES EARNS THE STARS AND WINNING ONE OF THE 18-HOLE EVENTS DOES NOT MEAN THE EARNING OF THE PBE STAR(S)

Performance Based Entry was introduced in 2003 as the means to determine AJGA tournament fields. This enables members to earn their way into AJGA tournaments based on performances at the national, regional and state levels.

The AJGA records information on all players (AJGA members and registered non-members) who play in a recognized event and meet the required finish in that event. AJGA members can view their status anytime in the AJGA Player Center on the AJGA website, ajga.org. By competing in Performance Based Entry-recognized tournaments, players may increase their "status" with the AJGA. For more information about PBE Stars CLICK HERE.

The AJGA website, ajga.org, is the official source for information regarding Performance Based Entry and is subject to change. The Northern Ohio PGA strongly urges all who want to learn more about AJGA to visit their official site. 

***Please check back here at a later time for 2020 DATES for AJGA PBE Stars.***
