No matter your qualification status is, you have to lock your spot in the field by purchasing a package. Packages will be available on this site August 2nd, 2021 at 6 PM PT.
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 career MGA events on your profile by the time MGAWC21 round 1 begins, you’re eligible. If you are not eligible, you cannot play in the MGAWC, but you can play in the Born Hairy!
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 are guaranteed to be competing for The Belt at Revere.
I GUESS I DIDN’T QUALIFY THEN…
It’s OK! As long as you played in at least 3 events this year (and have at least 5 career MGA events), you’re still ELIGIBLE (see above if you have the memory of a goldfish) and there’s a chance you’ll be able to compete for The Belt. Once all the Qualified registrants are accounted for, if there are less than 288 of them, we will continue cramming in the top available “eligible” players until Revere is full. You must buy an MGAWC package to be considered for one of these spots.
First to make the cut will be all the “eligible” registrants who finished 11th on their Chapter Money List. Then all the “eligible” registrants who finished 12th, then 13th and so on, until Revere is full. We did it this way in 2019 and I believe the final cutoff was 15th on the Chapter Money List. There are no guarantees however, since we don’t know how many qualified players will register. If you buy a package and don’t make the cut, you will be playing in the Born Hairy Tour Championship.
SO WHAT’S THE BORN HAIRY THEN?
The Born Hairy was created in 2019 and was a massive success. It is every bit as fun as the WC and the top 16 finishers in the Born Hairy earn a Qualified spot for the next MGAWC! It’s played on the same days as the WC (at a comparable course) and then everyone comes back together Saturday night for a giant raucous awards ceremony!
