Qualifying Information

Format: All players who are not exempt under the categories listed above must participate in an 18-hole qualifier. Qualifying round starting times, pairings and additional information, will be posted under Men’s Competitions Calendar by Friday, June 26.

What’s Included: The qualifying entry fee includes a qualifying round green fee and discounted practice round green fee at the qualifying site.

Wait listed Players: Entries received after the field limit has been reached will be placed on a “wait list” for that event. Applicants will be ranked on the wait list 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 wait list up until 5:00 PM of the night prior to the qualifying. There is no walk-up procedure for wait listed players.

Note: Wait list 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 wait listed player for that site.

Transferring Qualifying Site: Contact TGA Tournament Manager, Justin Guthrie at [email protected].

Qualifying Places: The number of qualifying spots allocated to each site will be determined by the TGA after the entry deadline 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 or it will be canceled. 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 Tournament Director.

Score Posting: At the conclusion of each sectional qualifying each player’s score will be automatically posted to the World Handicap System. Please do not enter your own scores from the competitive rounds, as this will result in a double post.

Last Chance Qualifying Information

Entries are accepted on a first-in basis and a limited wait list will be established. For 2020 ONLY, there will be two Last Chance Qualifying sites. One will be located in the DFW area, and another in the Houston area.
