Changing the Rankings
We have always been a supporter of the values
associated with playing the game of golf. As
we know teaching children about honesty
integrity and disciplne is a integral part of
playing the sport.
We also believe that
golf should be fun especially for the younger
players that are still learning the game and
how to compete. To over associate only winning
or focusing on where a player is ranked with
these younger competitors is neither
productive or useful.
As a result of having
thought about this issue for sometime and in
consultation with others in the competitive
junior golf world effective May 1, 2010 we
will no longer rank players under 5th grade.In
addition, due to the inconsistencies of the
competitive conditions for younger players, we
will no longer post the results for age groups
that are under the age of 10.
tournament organizers, and those who
appreciate our sport, we encourage everyone to
understand what our sport is about and how
introducing it the right way to young players
can make them players for life.
