2015 Insperity Invitational Junior Pro-Am Qualifications

February 4th, 2015

Author: Thomas Hutton
The Southern Texas PGA is excited to announce our continued relationship with the Insperity Championship and the Junior Pro-Am.  On Tuesday April 28, 2015 thirty-six STPGA junior golfers will have the experience of a lifetime playing 9-holes with a Champions Tour player at The Woodlands Country Club – Tournament Course.

In previous years the STPGA used the Spring Series Championship as the qualifier into the Junior Pro-Am.  However, due to the dates of the Spring Series Championships and the amount of time needed to properly communicate all information regarding the event, juniors will be selected using the Spring Series Points List in 2015.

After the weekend of March 28-29, juniors on the Points List will be selected to participate in the Junior Pro-Am.  Selection into this event will not be broken down by metro area like our Championships.  With this being the first year of not using the Spring Champions, the STPGA feels this is the simplest way to determine who receives an invitation to the tournament.      

Below is a breakdown on how many juniors from each division will be invited.  If there is a tie for the final spot, the tie breaker will be amount of points earned at the player’s last Spring Series tournament in that program. 
Junior Tour Spring Series Points List
Boys 11-12 Top 4
Boys 13-14 Top 4
Boys 15-18 Top 4
Girls 11-12 Top 4
Girls 13-14 Top 4
Girls 15-18 Top 4

Little Linksters Spring Series Points List
Boys 11-12 9-Red Top 3
Boys 9-10 9-hole Modified Top 2
Girls 11-12 9-Red Top 3
Girls 9-10 9-hole Modified Top 2
Co-ed 6-8 9-hole Modified Top 2
 
Please note that the selection of juniors into future Junior Pro-Ams may be different. The STPGA will email all players who qualify by Tuesday, March 31.  If a player is not able to participate, the next place will earn that exemption.
