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, 2018 through Labor Day.
  • 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.
