2016 Player of the Year Points

In 2016 the Sun Country Junior Tour will put great emphasis on the Player of the Year Points.  In the past the points have been more for the players to keep and have a competition among themselves.  This year we are putting the points to use!

 

The new points system has been taken from the PGA Tour and the FedEx Cup points system with the allocations listed below.  At each satellite tournament you will receive points determined by the place that you finish in that tournament.  After each event, points wil be allocated to the the respective age divisions and genders.  Players competing for the points will be girls and boys ages 10-18 in their respective divisions.  This is a change from the past, as we want to add more excitement and enthusiasm for the younger players.  

 

Points will be given for all satellite tournaments, as well as the fun events like scrambles and parent/juniors.  Points for events like scrambles and parents/juniors will be given out for participation, every player competing will receive 100 points just for playing.  There will be no points given based on performance because these events are meant to be relaxed and fun!  Players will also receive points for the Jr. Match Play Championship and the Jr. Tour Championship based on performance.  

 

Accumulation of points is very important this year!  We will be using age division point totals to send out invitations for the Sun Country Junior Tour Championship.  Based on the number of players allowed at the facility (TBD), we will send out invitations to the top 15-20 players in each age division and gender.  If someone is unable to compete at the Junior Tour Championship we will move down the points standings to the next person available.  

 

Once everyone is locked into the Junior Tour Championship, those competing will be eligible to win the Junior Tour Championship as well as the Player of the Year.  Just like the FedEx Cup, based on the number of points given in the Tour Championship there will be multiple players eligible to win the player of the year.   

 

We hope that this new use of the points system will encourage more participation at events and help to build excitement into the Junior Tour Championship.
