Additions:

A. The entry committee reserves the right to exempt & accept additional players

that do not meet the specified criteria.

B. Anyone not in the top 35 of the listed entrance criteria can still gain entry through one of  three 18 hole qualifiers:

♦ April 27th – Naples, FL (1 spot available) *Maximum field size 12

♦ April 27th – Roanoke, VA (2 spots available) *Maximum field size 24

♦ May 15th – Roanoke, VA (I spot available) *Maximum field size 12

*Each player is allowed only one qualifying attempt.

 

 

Example: If 33 players apply from the first 7 categories, all of those applicants will be accepted (this includes any special exemptions granted by the entry committee).  If eight other players have applied from category 8, then the first two of those will be accepted (based on the order of the criteria) to reach 35 total.  The six other players in category 8 not chosen and the remaining players that meet the lower criteria will be ranked in order by the committee as alternates and will then only earn entry through a qualifier, or if their alternate spot is needed.  The four spots being held for the qualifiers will bring the field to a total of 39 players.  The field size may be reduced if the number of applicants from the nine categories is less than 35 (in that case, the entry committee reserves the right to fill out the field with players not meeting any of the entrance criteria, and will base selections on a review of player applications).  Each player’s position within each category is determined by the order of each tournament listed, and all ties will be broken based on the players ranking.

 

Note:   The SRM entry committee reviews the exemption criteria yearly and makes changes as necessary.

All entry committee decisions are final.
