These entries will be accepted into the field in the order in which they were received, regardless of division.

Each division will play from a different yardage throughout the tournament rounds. Separate champions will be crowned with golf shop credit being awarded to top finishers.

Each TGA Medalist Series does not have exemptions into the events themselves, However, participants can earn exemptions into future tournaments based on their play throughout the series. Below is a list of earned exemptions from playing in the TGA Medalist Series:

Earned Exemptions
For each event players play, they will earn Medalist Player of the Year points based on their overall finish. There will be one (1) Medalist Hill Country POY and one (1) Medalist North POY. Medalist POY points are only available to players participating in the Open Division. Earning POY points will only count for that respective series the points were earned (i.e. playing in the Medalist North #1 will only count towards the Medalist North POY standings - not Hill Country).

Provided players are otherwise eligible, earned exemptions and their qualifications are given out into the following tournaments:
        
  1. Texas Mid-Amateur Championship - The Medalist Player of the Year in both the North and Hill Country Series receive exemptions into the 2021 Texas Mid-Amateur Championship at The Clubs at Houston Oaks from September 10-12, 2021.
