The Skills Challenge Series are single-day skills competitions based on chipping, pitching and putting. Membership is not required for this Series.

Tournament fees for the Skills Challenge Series are as follows:

  • $15 for Members
  • $30 for Non-members

Player Divisions:

  • Boys 5-7 / Girls 5-7
  • Boys 8-10 / Girls 8-10
  • Boys 11-13 / Girls 11-13

A player’s age as of September 5, 2021, will determine which age division the junior will compete in for the calendar year.

The Series will consist of eight qualifiers across the state starting in March and ending in August. The GSGA Junior Skills Challenge Championship will be held on the final-round day of the TOUR Championship at East Lake Golf Club on September 5, 2021.

Each qualifier will feature three skills that will consist of a 45-foot chip shot from fairway length, a 30-foot pitch shot from rough and a 15-foot putt. The junior at each qualifier will have three attempts and the two best results will be recorded for the junior’s cumulative score. However, each junior will only have two attempts during the Championship with both attempts being recorded for the junior’s cumulative score.

Use of a putter is not allowed for competition in the chip or pitch skill. Competitors may only use a lofted iron or wood club for these skills. A “chipper” club is considered an approved club for the chip or pitch skills.

Points:

Chip / Pitch

  • over 9 feet radius - 1 point
  • 6 to 9 feet radius - 2 points
  • 3 to 5’11” radius - 5 points
  • inside 3 feet radius - 10 points
  • made shot - 15 points

Putt

  • over 60 inch radius - 1 point
  • 36 to 60 inch radius - 2 points
  • 18 to 35 inch radius - 5 points
  • inside 18 inch radius - 10 points
  • made putt - 15 points

The junior who accumulates the most points in their respective division at the end of each qualifier will automatically advance to the GSGA Junior Skills Challenge Championship at the TOUR Championship. The top-two juniors in their respective divisions who have accumulated the most points throughout the year-long Skills Challenge Series, and have not yet qualified based on their performance at the qualifiers, will also gain entry.

In the case of a tie for qualifying positions (or medal positions at the Championship), the putting score will serve as the tiebreaker (followed by 1) pitching and 2) chipping if necessary). If a tie remains, a playoff shall commence to determine the player advancing to the Championship (or to be awarded the first-place medal at the Championship). This playoff shall include a single stroke at each of the skills (chip, pitch and putt) and each stroke will count in the player’s cumulative score for the playoff.

Point distribution for year-long Skills Challenge Series:

  • 2nd - 19 points
  • 3rd - 18 points
  • 4th - 17 points
  • 5th - 16 points
  • 6th - 15 points
  • 7th - 14 points

If there is still a tie, the next highest cumulative total will be used, and so on. If a tie cannot be broken, final spot(s) will be determined by lot.
