Rankings & Exemptions
Global Junior Golf Rankings
Global Junior Golf Rankings is the most comprehensive Junior Golf Ranking site in the world. Global Junior Golf Rankings rank one-day and multi-day tournaments by state and region in over 240 countries for players ages 5-19. Global Junior Golf Rankings ranks junior golfers by calculating each week's performance in the categories of Boys and Girls participating in junior golf tournaments worldwide. Minimum of 5 players per division.
Global Junior Golf Rankings will rank BOTH our multi-day and our one-day "1&Done" events. To learn more, visit juniorgolfranking.com
Junior Golf Scoreboard Rankings
Our multi-day events are ranked by the National Junior Golf Scoreboard (JGS) as long as a Division completes 36 holes and a minimum of 5 competitors finish the event from the same tees, it will be JGS ranked. Some tournaments may have both the 13-14 and 15-18 play from the same set of tees. In the event of weather cancelling one of the rounds, the event will still be ranked.

Trophies & Year End Awards
All multi-day tournaments feature awards for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in each age division, regardless of field size. Our "1&done" single day events feature a framed award for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in each age division.
If you win an event on the PJGT in 2020, you will automatically earn an exemption into the 2020 Premier Tour Championship.
At the end of each year, at the Tour Championship, year end awards are given out. A Player Of The Year is crowned in each multi-day age division (the player of the year is the player who has earned the most points throughout the year AND is present at the Tour Championship). New in 2020 is a separate points system for 1&Done players. A 1&Done Player Of The Year for each division will also be crowned at the Tour Championship. Also, 1&Done awards will recognize the players in the categories of Most Improved Boy, Most Improved Girl, Best Scoring Average (Boy), Best Scoring Average (Girl), (minimum 5 events played). Note that as in the past, points earned in a division stay in that division.
Players earn points for their multi-day tournament finish by division as follows:
Note: points are doubled for Major Championships and other special events (Match Play Championship, Tour Championship, etc.).
If three players each tie for first place in score, they would each earn the points awarded a first place finish. The play-off system is used to determine who has earned the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place trophies.
Age Divisions & Points
For the 2020 Points Year, which runs from Dec. 28, 2019 - Dec. 31, 2020, your age on the final round of a tournament will determine the division you will play in for that event. In the case of a birthday moving you into a new division during the course of the points year, you may wish to play up a division early on if you are vying for year end honors or Player Of The Year for a division. Please know that points earned in a division won't transfer to another division.
Note: If you turn 19 years old in 2020, you can still play with Premier, but you'll play on our new Adult tour, which offers both one day net events and two-day gross events. Visit www.premiergolftour.com to learn more, and as always, feel free to email or call us with any questions!
Year-End Points Rewards & Recognition
Points earned in 2020 will accrue for rewards and recognition throughout the year. First and foremost, the points leader in each multi-day age division will be awarded Player of the Year at our year-end Tour Championship, which will be conducted December 12-13, 2020. Must be present at the Tour Championship. 1&Done awards will also be awarded at the Tour Championship, including, new for 2020, a separate points system for 1&Done events, and therefore, players of the year for each division for most points earned. Also, 1&Done awards will recognize the players in the categories of Most Improved Boy, Most Improved Girl, Best Scoring Average (Boy), Best Scoring Average (Girl), (minimum 5 events played).
