The IMG Difference
Competitive junior golfers and their families have many options in selecting junior golf tournaments in which to compete. What are the key strengths that separate the IMG Junior Golf Tour from its competitors?
Opportunity. Play your way into prestigious national events and receive national recognition through player rankings. All events are nationally-ranked by Junior Golf Scoreboard and select events are ranked by The Golfweek/Sagarin Performance Index. AJGA Performance Based Entry status is available for top finishers in the 15-18 age divisions at each regular season tournament on the schedule (tournaments not listed with "AJGA" notation on the schedule page must meet the minimum field size requirements of 40 Boys and 12 Girls in the 15-18 divisions in order to recieve PBE status). In addition, tournament champions in the Boys 11-14 age division will recieve 1 AJGA Junior All-Star exemption (based on a minimum field of 20 players in the division). See our Points/Rankings section for more information.
Player Development. Players have access to unique resources at tournaments that will enable them to grow and develop not only as an athlete but as an individual. Interactive educational events provide players and their families with an opportunity at each event to meet and receive advice from experts and professionals on topics such as fitness and nutrition, mental performance, media training, public speaking and college recruiting. Fun post-round activities and contests are often a part of the event as well, enabling players and their families to interact with their fellow competitors and enjoy time off the golf course.
Value. We seek to run top-quality events at a price that reflects the value you receive. The retail value of all that is included often exceeds the tournament entry fee and includes:
- Practice Round the day prior to start of competition at no additional cost (All-Inclusive Entry)
- Tournament Rounds at top-quality championship courses
- At least one complimentary meal for the player (All-Inclusive Entry)
- Exceptional tournament gifts including merchandise from Under Armour, our official apparel provider
- The flexibility to choose your entry fee that makes the most sense for you and your schedule (All-Inclusive Entry vs. regular Tournament Entry)
