National Rankings, Exemptions and AJGA PBE
IMG Junior Golf Tour competitions provide participants a chance to continue to develop their competitive resumes through recognition from national junior golf rankings and entry status or exemptions into prestigious junior and amateur events.
AJGA Performance Based Entry (PBE)
The American Junior Golf Association recognizes most IMG Junior Golf Tour events with Performance Based Entry Status for top finishers.
2016-17 events will be recognized by AJGA Performance Based Entry Status based on details outlined on individual tournament information pages. (Information on Spring 2017 events will be available in late fall 2016).
For events or specific age divisions within events not guaranteed AJGA PBE status as outlined on tournament pages, if the event meets the minimum requirements for any age division we will submit it to the AJGA for consideration. Minimum requirements are 40 players (Boys 15-18), 12 players (Girls 15-18), 20 players (Boys 11-14) and 6 players (Girls 11-14).
