Player of the Year
Annually the Junior Golf Association conducts a season-ling performance point contest to determine a boy and girl player of the year
The Junior Golf Association annually awards Players of the Year titles in both boy and girl divisions, and 13-18 and 10-12 age groups. Winners are determined by player performance points. The 10-12 year old division title holders will be honored at the Jack Kelly PGA Junior Tournament of Champions on September 6, at Shennecossett Golf Course. The 13-18 year old division title holders will be honored at the annual PGA Hall of Fame and Champions Tribute which will be held on Monday, November 30, at Lake of Isles.
Player performance points are awarded to JGA members in the 13-18 age group (Boys must play from the age 16-18 division yardage) and 10-12 age group based on place finish among JGA members. In the case of ties, player performance points will be totaled then divided by the number of places tied and distributed accordingly. The only exception for this is when there is a tie for first place and a playoff determines a champion. Then the champion will receive the total first place points. Players winning two or more events will receive an additional one-time bonus of 25 points. Juniors who qualify for the USGA Junior Championships will receive 5 bonus points.

PGA Junior Golf Association and Tour thriving in Connecticut and Western Massachusetts
Russ Held Sports – SOUTH GLASTONBURY, Conn. (May 22, 2015)
Play golf. Enjoy golf. Simple objectives, and a clear mission of the Connecticut Section PGA's Junior Golf Association and its Junior Golf Tour.
"It's really about enjoyment of the game,'' Section executive director Tom Hantke said. "We've had our junior golf tour now close to 20 years. We see golfers, former junior tour golfers now 30-plus years old, and they're playing golf.
"That's really the objective. If they're successful in golf, all the better. But we just want them playing golf.''
The Junior Golf Association and Tour are now grown up as they turn 18, and are financially underwritten by the Section's Golf Foundation. Membership is healthy at an annual average of 500.
"The last four or five years, we've made great strides,'' Hantke said. "We've diversified the type of events we run, with our tournaments, our Little Linksters program, the pro-junior invitational . . .View More
