The Iowa Junior Tour Player of the Year is awarded to a junior in each division with the highest points accrued at the end of the season. This prestigious award is the top honor a junior can receive for their accomplishments on the Iowa Junior Tour. 

Player of the Year Points Calculation: Player of the Year point totals for 2014 was a “best of” approach. Juniors total will be the best finishes of 16 events. There are over 45 point events for juniors to choose on the 2014 schedule. If a sudden death playoff is conducted for a 1st place tie, the winner of the playoff will receive 1st place points. For all other ties, points will be split among competitors, even if there is a scorecard playoff. Scorecard playoffs are only used to determine who will receive the trophy for the event. Points will automatically be added to each player’s profile after the conclusion of the event.

Each junior must be a member of the Junior Tour at the time the points are earned. Junior Tour Player of the Year winners will be invited, along with their parents, to attend the Iowa PGA Section Awards Luncheon, where they will receive an award for their accomplishment. 

New for 2014, the Iowa PGA Junior Tour has been invited by the Gateway Junior Tour to participate in a Junior Cup Match event.  The top POY winners will be invited to attend this event.  The previous years POY will also be invited to attend the current year 18th Green Champions Ceremony at the Principal Charity Classic where they will be recognized and honored.  

Ace Point Events: These are state/section championships, consisting of the highest quality fields. Sometimes determined with qualifiers. Iowa PGA Section staff on site to administer.  

Eagle Point Events: Events with high quality fields and greater weight. Section staff does not administer these events.

Birdie Point Events: Tournaments determined to have a great weight due to large participation and a high quality field. Section staff does not administer these events.

Note: Qualifiers are non-point events. Player of the Year points are not given for participating.
