One of the frequent questions we
get here in our office is parents asking "Which
tournament should we sign up for?" There are
probably a half dozen criteria to use. Let
review some of them.
When you are
researching a tournament take a look at the same
tournament last year, or in the case of a tour
their other events, and look to see how many
players they had, the yardage they played, and
the scores it took to finish in the top five.
Are you or your player ready to play at that
How difficult will it be to travel
to the event?
What are the costs
Look at the whole field and make
your own judgements as to how strong the players
Finally, what other events are on your
schedule and does this event "fit" next to other
tournaments you want to play or have you allowed
for practice and down time?
these in mind can help you make the right choices.
