Or goal is to set up our own league here in Los Alamos with six teams. Players with little or no ability are welcome to join. We will hold a player tryout/assessment Saturday, May 9 at Los Alamos Golf Course.
The PGA JLG program is designed for boys and girls 7 to 13. Team Captains have the discretion to allow skilled younger players to play up on the team. A player cannot be 14 years of age prior to Aug. 1, 2013. Each competition is team vs. team, consisting of five 9-hole matches.
The format for each match is a two-player scramble. Players are assigned to a specific match at the beginning of the competition, and may play only within that match. Each three-hole segment of a match is called a “Flag”. Matches consist of 9-holes, or 3 “Flags” 1 point is awarded per “Flag”, 3 points available per match 4 total matches per competition 12 total points awarded per competition. If a “Flag” is tied, a half point is award-ed to each team. Every player attending a PGA JLG competition will play in a match.
Teams must have a minimum of 8 players to start a match. Each player in attendance must play at least one “Flag” (3-hole segment). Player substitutions will be allowed at the beginning of each new “Flag” (Holes 4 and 7). Players must stay with the original match they are assigned to.
