A wonderful performance by both the BRJGT team and the Sned Tour. Proud of the BRJGT team for achieving their first win over the Sneds Tour. Congratulations to both teams for a superbly played match play event!

SOCIAL DISTANCING REQUIREMENTS ARE LISTED UNDER TOUR INFO
The season ending Tour Championship is the culmination of good play during the previous 6 weeks. To qualify for that event, a player needs to be in the top 60% of the age group. The formula to figure the number of slots available is: number of participants in each age group X .6. If that number is not a multiple of 3, the number is raised to the next multiple of three. It is our hope to fill the field in each age group. If you qualify and wish to play, please register. Those not qualifying may register and be put on the wait list.
**NOTE: These have been updated on 7/11/2020.**
Here are the numbers to be included in each age group at the Tour Championship:
17-18 age group--24 players
15-16 age group--24 players
13-14 age group--18 players
10-12 age group--15 players
9 and Under age group--9 players
