Summer Gold Tournaments Policy

  • Players may use the points from a maximum of two gold tournaments in any given age division held from June 1, 2019 through Labor Day weekend.
  • If a player participates in more than two gold tournaments in any given age group, his or her top two point-earning events will automatically be used.
