Additions:

  1. The entry committee reserves the right to exempt additional players.
  2. 1 spot for every 14 that attempt to qualify, in the two Scott Robertson qualifying events held at Roanoke Country Club April 27 and May 15 for the 15-18 year old division.  (A player is allowed only one attempt at qualifying at either Roanoke Country club or Quail Creek Country Club.)
  3.   Top 2 qualifiers from the Quail Creek Country Club, Naples, FL qualifier, April 27th
  4. 2022 Top 3 on the Roanoke Valley Golf Hall of Fame Junior Boys Points Rankings. (If any of the top 3 are exempted into the tournament field through other criteria, this does not exempt the next place finisher into the field.)
  5. Top two qualifiers from US Challenge Cup, New England qualifier
  6. Winner of the VSGA Boys Player Ranking 2022-2023. (If the winner of the points is exempted into the tournament field through other criteria, this does not exempt the 2nd place finisher into the field.)
  7. 2023 Lanto Junior Golf Tour points winner. If the points winner is still age eligible to play in the 14 and under division, they may choose this division over the 15-18 if that is their preference. This decision must be made at the time of submission of SRM application. (If the winner of the points is exempted into the tournament field through other criteria, or chooses to play the 14 and under division, this does not exempt the 2nd place finisher into the field.)

Example:   If 75 players apply from the first 6 categories, all of those applicants will be accepted (this includes any special exemptions granted by the entry committee).  If 8 other players have applied from category 7, then 2 of those will be accepted (based on criteria) to reach 77 total.  The 2 players in category 7 not chosen will be ranked by the committee as alternates until the qualifiers have been played, at which point the alternates will be designated from the qualifiers.  The remaining applicants in category 7, plus those in 8-10 will then only earn entry through the qualifier.  The field size may be reduced if the number of applicants from the 12 categories is less than 84.

 

Note:  The SRM entry committee reserves the right to review the exemption criteria yearly and make changes as necessary.  The decisions of the Entries Committee are final.
