State Point System
The Rocky Mountain Junior Golf Tour will also award points to the top players in each division at each individual state tournament. Players may start accumulating points at the first RMJGT event of the season. The last event hosted in each state will be the STATE CHAMPIONSHIP. At this final state event, the top point holder in each division will be awarded the State Player of the Year (this is separate from the Overall Player of the Year awarded at Tournament of Champions).
Here is the system:
At each RMJGT tournament, the top 10 players in the boys 15-19 division are awarded state points (winner receives 10 points, 2nd place receives 9 points, & so on). The top 5 13-14 & 12-13 boys, along with the 15-19 girls are awarded state points (winner receives 5 points). The top 3 younger boys and girls are awarded state points (winner receives 3 points). Each player finishing the event will also receive 1 point for participating.
Boys 15-19 Example:
Winner: James Dean from Colorado is awarded 10 points
2nd: Harry Truman from Washington is awarded 9 points
3rd: Bruce Lee from New Mexico is awarded 8 points
and so on…
