No matter your qualification status is, you have to lock your spot in the field by purchasing a package HERE. It’s first come, first served and it will most likely sell out.
AM I ELIGIBLE TO ENTER AS A COMPETITOR AND NOT A GUEST?
If you’ve played as a competitor in at least 3 MGA events this year and have a minimum of 5 total MGA events on your profile, you’re eligible.
WTF DOES “QUALIFIED” MEAN THEN?
It means you not only met the “Eligible” qualifications, but you either won a tournament in your home chapter or finished in the Top 10 on your Chapter’s money list. If you’re in that rarified air, you’ll be competing for The Belt right from the start of Round 1.
I GUESS I DIDN’T QUALIFY THEN…
It’s OK! As long as you played in at least 3 events this year, you’re still ELIGIBLE (see above if you have the memory of a goldfish) to compete and can come to play against the other unqualified players in the LO-IQ (Last Opportunity In Qualification). A few World Champs have even come through the LO-IQ!
You will play round 1 as if you’re playing for The Belt, but you’ll need to finish in the top half of the LO-IQ field (the last man through in 2018 shot a 109) that day to “qualify” and make your round 1 score count. If you do that, you’ll be competing for The Belt for reals on day 2!
If you finish in the bottom half of the LO-IQ, you still get to golf on day 2, but you will not appear in the results of the tournament because you did not qualify.
