To coincide with Junior Golf Scoreboard guidelines, your division is determined by the scholastic grade you are currently in when playing in that season's event (Spring Season - Current Grade, Summer Season-Upcoming Fall Grade).
Spring Season - March -June For example, if you are currently an 8th grader, you would compete in the Junior High Division of the Prep Tour Spring Events.
Summer Season - July - October (Division determined by the school year you are going into the upcoming Fall) For example, if you will graduate from 8th grade in May/June; you would compete in the Freshman/Sophomore Division of the Prep Tour for the Summer Season events. If you will graduate from Sophomore year of High School in May/June, you now play in the Junior/Senior Division of the Prep Tour for summer events.
The Prep Tour implemented a Continuous Putting Condition of the Competition Rule beginning in the 2020 season. The Prep Tour immediately noticed nearly a 20 minute per round pace of play reduction. An efficient pace of play benefits the overall player experience and helps The Prep Tour retain our wonderful host venues. The Prep Tour Continuous Putting Policy will remain in effect.
Summary of Continuous Putting:
Playing in 3somes: Once all 3 players' balls are on the putting surface, the player whose ball is furthest from the hole putts 1st. If Player A misses his/her 1st putting attempt, it is still Player A’s turn to putt. Player A may still mark, lift, clean, and align his/her ball before attempting his/her 2nd putt. Once Player A successfully holes his/her putt, Player A should immediately proceed to the next teeing ground and tee off on the next hole. Player B then continuously putts. Once Player B holes his/her putt, Player B should gather his/her bag and witness the number of putts it takes Player C to complete the hole. Player B and C then proceed to the next teeing ground and record scores with Player A for the recently completed hole. Player B and C then tee off and play briskly continues.
Playing in 4somes: The procedure remains nearly the same. Player A and Player B continuously putt and then immediately leave for the next teeing ground. Player C putts and then audits Player D’s putts. Players C & D join Players A and B on the next teeing ground to record scores for the entire group for the recently completed hole.
REMINDER: It is imperative / mandatory for Player A to leave the putting surface and go tee off. Do Not Wait for the other players to arrive at the teeing ground before you put your tee ball into play!
