SELECTION PROCESS

Selection for the 2017 Aspen Grove Challenge at The Little Course at Conner Lane will be different than in previous years in lieu of challenges to "standardize" tournament setup conditions across the state. As a result, the Sneds Tour Staff has developed a new set of criteria exemptions for the Aspen Grove Challenge. We fully expect this new format to be fair for any junior golfer whether they are competing on par 3 courses or regulation courses. Please read the following information carefully to get a full understanding of how the criteria will be utilized.

2.  Any one round at EVEN par or better

3.  Any two or more rounds from one over(+1) to three over(+3) par

4.  Any one round from one over(+1) to three over(+3) par


Boys 8-9

1.  Any two or more rounds at EVEN par or better

2.  Any one round at EVEN par or better

3.  Any two or more rounds from one over(+1) to three over(+3) par

4.  Any one round from one over(+1) to three over(+3) par

5.  Any two or more rounds from four over(+4) to seven over(+7) par

6.  Any one round from four over(+4) to seven over(+7) par

2.  Any one round at nine over(+9) par or better

3.  Any two or more rounds from 10 over(+10) to 13 over(+13) par

Tiebreakers
Below are the tiebreaker scenarios that will be used for ALL micro divisions:

Tiebreak #1 - Head to Head Matchup(s)
Ex: David and John competed in the same three tournaments. David shot lower scores than John in two of the three tournaments. David would win the tiebreak. Note: If players tied under the same criteria level did not ALL compete against each other head to head we will move to Tiebreak #2.

Tiebreak #2 - Total Number of Rounds Within The Criteria Level
Ex: Sarah and Rachel each shot multiple rounds of EVEN par or better. Sarah has three rounds in this criteria level while Rachel has four rounds in the same criteria. Rachel would win the tiebreak because she has one more round that fits into the criteria level. If no break in tie, we will move to Tiebreak #3.

Tiebreak#3 - Sum of The Rounds That Fit Under The Criteria Level
Ex: Trevor and Rob are competing in the Boys 10-11 division. Trevor and Rob each have two rounds of one over(+1) to three over(+3) par, so they will both fit under criteria number three. Trevor's cumulative total of his two rounds is three over(+3) par while the sum of Rob's two rounds under the criteria level is four over (+4) par, so Trevor would win the tiebreak.

Tiebreak #4 - Next Lowest Round In Relation to Par That Does Not Meet Any Criteria Level
Ex: David's next best round NOT in the criteria level in relation to par is a single round of four over (+4) par. John's next best round NOT in the criteria level is also four over (+4) par. John's next best round after that is another round of four over(+4) par while David's next best round is five over(+5) par, so John would win the tiebreak. 

Tiebreak #5 - Most Rounds Played During Summer Season
Ex: Emma has played in six events during the summer season and Anna has played in five, so Emma would win the tiebreak.

*Note: For the above criteria levels we will only proceed to the next level if the tournament field is NOT full.
Ex: If the tournament field is set at 15 juniors in the Boys 10-11 division and 15 juniors fall under criteria #1 and #2, then criteria #3 will be used for alternate spots.

*In all three Micro divisions a junior MUST compete in at least FOUR tournaments in order to be eligible for the Aspen Grove Challenge

In addition to the new exemption criteria, the Sneds Tour Staff has decided that the yardages used at each Micro event need to be similar as possible. After reviewing yardages for all divisions from previous years, ALL micro divisions competing on par 3 courses will play from approximately 1000 yards. ALL micro divisions competing on a regulation par 36 course will play from approximately 1850 yards. Please note, all regulation length courses will be played as a par 36, regardless of the par listed on the course scorecard.
