Match Play format:
There are no age divisions for this match play event*. Players will be grouped into pods of 4 based on their National Junior Golf Scoreboard Rankings as of Monday, February 27. The 4 best players in the field will be in one pod, the next 4 in one pod, and so on. Each player will play the other 3 players in 3 different 9 hole matches. The final 9 holes will be for the pod championship. The top two players will face each other for the championship and the other two will face off in the 3rd place match.
*All boys, regardless of age, will play from 6500-6800 yards. All girls, regardless of age, will play from 5500-5800 yards.
Players will not be playing traditional match play in “closing out their opponent”. All players will play all 9 holes of each match. A point will be awarded when someone wins a hole. The two players in a pod with the most points (holes won) through their 3 matches face off for the championship. In the event of a tie, the head to head record will determine who advances. Then record will be looked at (ie 2-1, 1-2). If that does not break the tie, the winner will be the person who won the most recent hole in the head to head match. The last tie breaker will be the least points lost throughout the 27 holes.
