Timeline and Qualification 

  • The cut list will be created within 48 hours of the regular entry deadline. 
  • Division sizes will lock on the Wednesday 1.5 weeks before the start of the tournament. Once division sizes lock, division sizes will not increase in size even if the division is not at capacity. 
  • All players who sign up after the regular entry deadline are considered late entries. These players should assume that they are on the waitlist unless they have been told otherwise by the Tournament Director.

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.
  • Summer gold tournaments not counting towards a player’s ranking average will not affect that player’s overall tournament count.
  • NOTE: If a player incurs a 0-point ranking penalty due to a second late withdrawal or mid-tournament default, that tournament will count on the player’s record even if they have played in more than 2 summer gold tournaments.
