2019 Accumulated Merit points

EVERY ST. LAWRENCE JUNIOR GOLF TOURNAMENT IS RANKED BY GOLF ONTARIO"  ALL PLAYERS CAN EARN POINTS ON THE GOLF ONTARIO JUNIOR RANKING LIST BY PERFORMING WELL AT OUR EVENTS. 

In years past, our Junior golfers had to go play in other tournaments to get noticed and to open opportunities for them in golf (such as golf scholarships, being on Ontario Jr. Golf Team, etc.)  Playing in our tour (or any of the 10 Regional Jr. Golf Tours) didn’t help the better players get recognized. That’s why many of them stopped playing in the St. Lawrence Tour., and other Tour Associations they were too busy going to events in Ottawa, Toronto, etc., where they would get noticed.  

Every time you play in one of our events (provided it meets the criteria set by Golf Ontario) We will send your score to them.  Points are awarded for how you performed in each event. You can earn as much as 200 points by winning one of our events in your age division. Most importantly, if you are gaining merit points by doing well at several Junior Golf Tournaments, your name will become known by all those interested in supporting Junior Golfers. They’ll be looking at the Merit list and seeing which Juniors have the most points. To learn more about this new Merit Award system check the following link:

The Juniors who represent the St. Lawrence Junior Golf Team, at the Humber Cup Tournament held each year in August, in competition with the other Junior Tour Associations will be selected based on the following criteria for 2019.  

The 2 players who accumulate the greatest number of Merit Points during the 2019 Tour for each Division will be selected. There is no number of games required to qualify. 

If one of the players selected is not avaialble, then the player who had the 3rd highest number of Merit Points will be selected, and if necessary the next player with the highest number of Merit Points will be selected, until the 2 top players are determined.

In the case of a tie, the player with the lowest gross average score will be selected.
