Format: All players who are not exempt under the categories listed on the 110th Texas Amateur Information Page must participate in an 18-hole individual stroke play sectional qualifier. Qualifying and alternate positions will be denoted in the table below once entries close (Wednesday, March 27th, 2019). Qualifying Round starting times and pairings will be posted under Qualifying Sites & Results by Thursday, April 4th, 2019.

Successful qualifiers and alternates will receive additional information pertaining to the champions following the completion of their qualifier from the Official-in-Charge on-site. The low medalist from each qualifying site will receive a Texas Amateur Money Clip for the exceptional play, which will be distributed at Player Registration during the 110th Texas Amateur Championship.

Registration: There is no official on-site registration/check-in required. However, it is recommended that players arrive to the tee 8 minutes prior to their starting time to receive additional information.

Playoff(s): Ties for the last qualifying spot and any alternate positions shall be broken by a sudden death hole-by-hole playoff. There will be no playoff for low medalist ties. Playoff(s), if applicable, will begin immediately after all scores have been approved and posted by the Official-in-Charge. It is the responsibility of each player to be present for any playoff(s) that may occur, as directed by the TGA Official-in-Charge.

Approximate Yardage: 6,700 to 7,100 yards. Best efforts will be made at each qualifying site to replicate a course set-up appropriate for the championship; however, some variance between sites is unavoidable.

What’s Included: The qualifying entry fee includes a qualifying round green fee and discounted practice round green fee (including cart and range usage) at the qualifying site. Please consult the table below for additional information on specific qualifying site parameters. Note: Players who are registered for a Texas Amateur qualifier are limited to only one (1) practice round at the rate displayed on the table below.  
 
Transportation/Caddies: Players may walk or ride at their discretion during qualifying rounds with the applicable fee paid directly to the host club as outlined in the chart below. During qualifying rounds, caddies are not guaranteed a cart seat; carts are limited to two players per cart and a maximum of two carts per group. Players and their caddies must walk at all times during the practice round and all stipulated rounds of the 110th Texas Amateur. There are NO spectator carts during TGA qualifying or championship events. 
 
Score Posting: At the conclusion of each qualifier, each player’s score will be automatically posted as a "T” or tournament score to the GHIN handicap system. Please do not enter your own scores from the competitive rounds, as this will result in a double post.

Withdrawal Policy: Players who cannot make their assigned starting time must contact the TGA in advance of their qualifier, or the designated TGA Official-in-Charge at the qualifying site. If a player withdraws after the entry deadline has passed, the player will not receive a refund unless the spot is filled by a wait listed player. A player who notifies the TGA prior to their starting time will be marked as a "NS" (No Start) and will be able to follow the walk-up procedure at another qualifying site. If a player fails to notify the TGA in advance of the qualifier, they will be marked as "DQ" (Disqualified) and will not be able to follow the walk-up procedure at another qualifying site.  See TGA Policies and Procedures for further details.
 
Withdrawal Procedure: Prior to the entry deadline, players looking to withdraw should do so online through their Golf Genius account profile to receive an immediate refund and withdrawal confirmation. After the entry deadline has passed players should either call the TGA at (214) 468-8942 or email tournaments@txga.org. Only withdrawals on the day of the qualifier should be directed to the Host Club Golf Shop.

Transferring Qualifying Site: Changing a qualifying site is permissible, but only before the tournament entry deadline on Wednesday, March 27th. Otherwise, if a player is entered in a Texas Amateur qualifier and the entry deadline has passed and circumstances arise that would cause him to miss his assigned qualifier, he may follow the "Walk-Up Procedure”, outlined in the Texas Golf Association Policies and Procedures, at another qualifying site. Any waitlisted player at a qualifying site will be drawn by lot to replace players in the field that fail to show up at his designated starting time and ahead of those players looking to follow the “Walk-Up Procedure”.
 
Walk-Up Procedure for Qualifying Rounds: If a player is entered in a Texas Amateur qualifier and the entry deadline has passed and circumstances arise that would cause him to miss his assigned qualifier, he may follow the "Walk-Up Procedure”, outlined in the Texas Golf Association Policies and Procedures, at another qualifying site. Any waitlisted player at a qualifying site will be drawn by lot to replace players in the field that fail to show up at their designated starting time and ahead of those players looking to follow the “Walk-Up Procedure”.

To be a part of the Walk-Up Procedure you must be either registered at another qualifying site or a waitlisted player. Players wishing to Walk-Up are required to check in with the TGA official at the 1st tee 30 minutes prior to the start of the qualifying round. Players attempting to transfer qualifying sites or waitlisted players who are late to check in will be placed at the bottom of the Walk-Up list. Once play begins, if a player who is in the starting field fails to show up at the tee at the designated time, an alternate or waitlisted player will be called. If the player does not show within five minutes of the original starting time, the alternate or waitlisted player’s ball will be in play.
 
Any waitlisted player at a qualifying site will be drawn by lot to replace players in the field that fail to show up at his designated starting time. Waitlisted players at a specific site will take priority over players following the Walk-Up Procedure who were originally registered at another site.
 
Wait List: Entries received after the field limit has been reached will be placed on a "waitlist” for that event. Applicants will be ranked on the waitlist in the order their application was received by the TGA, unless otherwise specified in tournament eligibility. Any spots in the field that become available will then be filled in accordance with the ranked wait list. The TGA will use the waitlist up until 6:00 PM of the night prior to the qualifying round. After that time, any player on the waitlist may exercise their right to walk-up on site. Please see "Walk-Up Procedure” for further details above. Note: Waitlist rankings only apply to Texas Amateur qualifiers when a qualifying site reaches capacity; players must register before the entry deadline to be considered as a waitlisted player for that site.

Qualifying Places: The number of qualifying spots allocated to each site will be determined by the TGA after the entry deadline (Wednesday, March 27th) has closed and all eligible entries are confirmed. This number of spots available is based on the field size at each site. Each qualifying site will have a predetermined field limit and may fill up. Each qualifying site must have at least 6 players registered prior to the entry deadline (Wednesday, March 27th) or it will be cancelled. If the requested qualifying site is full or cancelled, applicants will be reassigned by the TGA to the nearest qualifying site available. If reassignment is unacceptable, a full refund will be granted.

Ties: The last qualifying position or an alternate position shall be decided by a sudden death hole-by-hole playoff immediately after the last score has been approved and posted by a TGA Official-in-Charge. It is the responsibility of each player to be present for any playoff(s) that may occur, as directed by the TGA Official-in-Charge.
