The IJGT is pleased to offer a ranking system that showcases the top players on the tour in each division throughout the IJGT season. These rankings are used for preferred registration and selection into the IJGT Major Championships and Invitational events. At the end of the season, the Top 10 in each age division will be named to the All Tournament Team and be honored at the awards banquet hosted as part of the Bridgestone Golf Tournament of Champions event. IJGT Rankings also determine which players qualify for exemptions into other prestigious Junior Amateur events.
All participants are eligible to earn Merit Points toward the Tour Rankings. A player must have one (1) IJGT event within the season to be ranked and the best five (5) finishes will count towards the rankings.
** Major Championships and Invitational Events are worth double merit points**
If there are ties for a specific place, the IJGT Merit Points will be split evenly. For example, a three-player tie for 2ndPlace would result in each player receiving 850 Merit Points (2550 total points for 2nd, 3rd and 4th, divided evenly among three players). No points are awarded to players who do not finish the competition.
