AJGA Arrives in Virginia Tomorrow

July 31, 2010 by  

The AJGA Junior at River Creek kicks off tomorrow, August 1, with a Qualifier.  The actual AJGA event will be played at River Creek Club.  Practice round on Monday, August 2, with the 54-hole stroke play tournament beginning on August 3rd.

The Qualifier is being held at the Piedmont Club in Haymarket.  The AJGA uses a Performance-Based Entry system that allows juniors to earn their way into AJGA Open tournaments based on their performance at the national, regional and state levels.  It’s a very fair system that takes into account the player’s performance (and not AJGA officials) to determine acceptance into an event.  For those players that haven’t built enough “status” to gain direct entry into an Open event, the AJGA conducts a Qualifier that allows for juniors to play their way into the tournament.  Players that qualify have the option to either play in the tournament or take an Exemption that can be applied to a future AJGA event.

The DC Metro area is well-represented in the Qualifier field.   As well, there are quite a few DC Metro area players that made it into the tournament field.  From a junior golf perspective, it’s great to see the AJGA make a stop in the DC Metro area.  We join the juniors in the DC Metro area as well as those in the surrounding states in hoping this becomes an annual stop on this elite tour.  To read more about the AJGA and the Junior at River Creek, checkout the AJGA website -  ajga.org

Good luck to all those looking to qualify on Sunday.  Play well!
