Qualifying Formulas

QUALIFYING PLAYERS FOR STATE GOLF

 

Regular Season Matches – Matches must be played on a rated course.  A maximum of 14 matches can be played for qualifying purposes and a match is nine holes or if 18 holes will count as two matches (a qualifying score can be part of an Invitational using the SAME nine hole score played). NOTE: If a tournament is teeing players off both # 1 and # 10 tees, the same nine shall be scored for all players.

 

Scores must be attested to by the coaches from the participating schools. Each school will enter qualified scores onto the AIA web site. Results must be reported within 72 hours (AIA By-law 11.5).   

 

Only full teams (four or five members by definition representing a particular school) are eligible for the AIA state team trophy competition. Teams advance to the State Tournament by equaling or exceeding the qualifying standards set by the AIA for the regular season (“target” system). To advance to the State Tournament a team must qualify a minimum of five times (“legs”).

         x must be shot on at least two separate courses

         x may only qualify three (3) scores on their school’s designated home course 

(Exception: if a team is playing at their home course but it is another team’s home match it will not count as one of their three opportunities) 

 

Schools may qualify a maximum of five (5) players or one team. If only individual players qualify they will be listed as individuals and eligible for individual honors.

 

Course Rating – Use the appropriate front or back 9 course rating use.  Course Ratings can be found by going to the USGA web site.  http://ncrdb.usga.org/NCRDB/  The home school or Tournament Director will declare before play starts which tee location will be used.

SLOPE RATINGS:

 

Golf Course Slope Ratings will be used as part of the overall “Target Score” - with each individual needing to subtract two (2) strokes for a golf course slope  rating of “100” or less and add one (1) stroke for a golf course with a course rating of “130” or more. Team scores would be the total of the individual number; Golf Course Slope Rating between 100 and 130 would have no change to the automatic qualifying formula.

SCORING

Each player in a group shall be responsible for keeping and verifying the score of another player in the group.  Scores should be recorded immediately before moving to the next tee.  Make sure the cards are correct and signed before cards are turned in at the scoring table at the end of each round. Scorecards will be considered officially turned in when a player turns his/her card into the official scored at the scoring table. The player is responsible for his/her scorecard after it has been turned into the official scoter and has been accepted.
