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 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 2018.  

The 2 players who accumulate the greatest number of Merit Points during the 2018 Tour for each Division will be selected. There is no number of games required to qualify. It is the responsibility of each player: 

  • to review the Merit Point standings on a regular basis to see what their situation is in the standings
  • to ensure they are entering the number of events they need to compete for the top 2 positions being selected
  • to plan and organize any GO tournaments or qualifiers whenever possible around the Tours events 

If a player who was selected cannot attend the Provincials, the next player with the 3rd greatest number of Merit Points will be selected, and if that player is not available the next player with the greatest number of Merit Points will be selected, until the position is filled. 

In the event of a tie in Merit Points, the player with the lowest gross scoring average in 2018 will be selected. 

In unusual circumstances, which should be very rare, there may be a situation when it is necessary for the Committee to select the player, and the Committee will take the following considerations into account when making that selection.

  • merit points
  • competed events
  • winner of a current year GO Tournament(s)
  • winner of a current year Major Tournament(s)
  • low gross average score
  • availability
  • conduct displayed during the Tour
