Information:

Players should choose their division according to their age as of June 3, 2018. Points will be accrued in only one division. Player of the Year is the highest honor awarded to an Iowa Junior Tour member. Each of the following age divisions will have one Player of the Year winner to be honored at the Iowa PGA Section Awards Luncheon in the Fall.

Each junior must be a member of the Junior Tour at the time the points are earned. Junior Tour Player of the Year winners will be invited, along with their parents, to attend the Iowa PGA Section Awards Luncheon, where they will receive an award for their accomplishment. The Iowa PGA Section Awards Luncheon is scheduled for October 30, 2018, and will be held at the Riverside Casino & Resort in Riverside, Iowa.

 

Player of the Year Points Calculation:

Player of the Year point totals for 2018 will continue to be a best of approach. Juniors total will be the best finishes of 15 events. There are over 50 point events for juniors to choose on the 2018 schedule. If a sudden death playoff is conducted for a 1st place tie, the winner of the playoff will receive 1st place points. For all other ties, points will be split among competitors, even if there is a scorecard playoff. Scorecard playoffs are only used to determine who will receive the trophy for the event. Points will automatically be added to each player’s profile after the conclusion of the event.

Once the season has begun, you will find updated points for each division on this page. Please contact the Iowa PGA Section office at 319-648-0026 with any questions.
