2018 Accumulated Merit Points for Provincials

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 top 2 players with the most accumulated merit points in each Division (excludes the Atom Division who do not compete in Provincial Championships) will be selected to represent the St. Lawrence Junior Golf Tour at The Humber Cup, which is the Ontario Junior Golf Tour Championship occurring at the end of August each year. The accumulated merit points will be based on the players best 8 events. Players who play less than 8 events could still qualify for the 2 top positions (see example below). If one of the players cannot attend, the alternative will be the player with the next most merit points based on the above criteria. 

Example

Player (A) plays 10 events with 985 points for his best eight events.

Player (B) plays in 7 events with 1000 points and would be awarded 1st place
