Policies & Procedures
To ensure that competitors have the best possible experiences when competing in the championships, it is helpful to be knowledgeable of Texas Golf Association (TGA) Policies and Procedures, Terms of Competition and Local Rules (Hard Card), as established by the association. For more information, please click here. For information specific to the Terms of Competition applicable to the TGA Medalist Series, please see below:
Skins Eligibility: To remain eligible, players entered into the optional skins game must complete their respective round and post a score. Players who No Card or Withdraw from the event forfeit all possible skins earnings. If you are entering or currently playing collegiate golf, to avoid possible NCAA violations, we ask you not to participate.
Ties: Should there be a tie for the overall champion, there will be a sudden death hole-by-hole playoff to determine the winner immediately after all scores have been verified. If circumstances arise (i.e. darkness, weather, etc.) that do not allow for a playoff to take place, then co-champions will be named and merchandise awards will be split. In case of a tie, that position will receive the full points (i.e. two players tie for second place will both receive full allotment for second place). Medalist POY points are only awarded to players competing in the Open Division.
Caddies: Caddies are permitted during the championship. Players are responsible for supplying their own caddie for the competition. Caddies must abide by the host facility dress code.

TGA Cart Policy: Information regarding the use and availability of transportation varies between TGA Championships – refer to the Tournament Information for the championship in question. Please be advised that in championships where carts are provided, players are encouraged to utilize motorized transportation. In doing so, carts will be limited to two (2) carts per group. New to 2020: While a caddie is not prohibited from riding in the cart, the TGA has adopted a ‘one-seat’ policy as explained below.
‘One-Seat’ Policy
The ‘One-Seat’ policy allows either the player or the player’s caddie to ride in or move a golf cart, but not at the same time. The player and the player’s caddie are not allowed to ride in the same or separate carts at the same time.

The player can ride in or move a golf cart with another player in it, so long as the player’s caddie is not riding in another cart at that time.
The player can ride in or move a golf cart with another player’s caddie in it, so long as the player whose caddie is in the cart is not riding in another cart at the same time. As a reminder, players are responsible for the actions of their caddie.
Continued intentional disregard for the policy may result in disqualification following adequate warnings:

  • First breach: Verbal reminder from the Committee
  • Second breach: Stern reminder from the Committee
  • Third breach: Possible disqualification from the Committee

TGA Medical Cart Request: Policy Spectator carts are prohibited. However, spectators in accordance of ADA compliance may request golf carts. Requests for golf carts must be supported by complete documentation, including the fully-completed Cart Request Form and the required accompanying medical documentation specified in that form for all first-time requests. Any medical cart request that is granted by the TGA will be good for that individual for the remainder of that calendar season. A request will not be deemed complete until all required information and documentation has been provided. For further information and details contact Senior Tournament Director – Chris Untiedt.

Score Posting: At the conclusion of each round, player’s scores 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.
