How do you Qualify?
Players qualify to participate in the SWIRE CUP based on their performance in designated tournaments of the Utah Junior Golf Association. The team selection is based on performance in all regular season UJGA sanctioned tournaments during the year and is as follows:
- Johnny Miller Masters Division / Top 8
- Bruce Summerhays Masters Division / Top 8
- Mike Reid Masters Division / Top 8
- Belle Fellows Masters Division / Top 6
- Judie Ahrend Masters Division / Top 2
SCORING for the event:
The SWIRE Cup format is a team event with 8-players from each division being selected to represent their respective division. The tournament will be handicapped by setting the tees at an adjusted length to accommodate the abilities of the players. The event format is a four-division team competition with each division competing against one another. Each member of the TEAM (total of 8-players) will score his/her own golf ball for the designated 18-holes. The TEAM total-score is determined by adding the four-lowest TEAM scores on each hole to arrive at a hole score for each of the 18-holes. Low TEAM total wins the SWIRE Cup.
Player Performance Ranking points are awarded to individuals based on full field individual results.
