2013 Junior Greatest Golfer Eligibility Requirements and General Rules of Play
TWO JUNIORS DIVISIONS for GIRLS and BOYS:
Upper: Ages 15,16,17 Lower: Ages 12,13,14
Regardless of the qualifier date, you compete in division that reflects your age as of the Championship Finals (July 28, 2013).
If you are 18 before the Finals (July 28, 2013), you are ineligible unless you will still be in high school for upcoming year.
No playing up into Upper bracket unless you are a past “Greatest” champ.
RESIDENCY: Players must reside in The Vindicator delivery area of Mahoning, Trumbull, Columbiana, Mercer and Lawrence counties.
REGISTRATION: All registration is through the Juniors form. Guaranteed entry closes two(2) days prior to tee off. Entry into any event after that date must be handled via email to firstname.lastname@example.org and is subject to availability. Golfers may participate in multiple qualifying matches but may only qualify once.
ADVANCEMENT: The top two girls and boys in each division at each site, so a total of eight(8) players from each qualifier, will advance to the Finals (July 28, 2013). If a qualifier cannot participate in the Championship Finals, their position will be given to the next eligible golfer in the qualifying match.
SOME PLAYING RULES:
Range finders permitted, but cannot detect elevation.
Pull carts optional, but no caddies except for finals.
Spectators allowed but cannot advise except in finding lost balls.
