The Players Series is designed to give junior golfers from South Carolina the opportunity to develop their skills and earn exemptions into future major championships hosted by the SCJGA.

“Over the past several years we’ve seen an increase in applicants to most of our SCJGA majors,” Justin Fleming, SCJGA Senior Director, said. “We initially tried to address this demand with local qualifiers and additional one days. However, 2021 was a banner year with membership increasing significantly and tournament entries at an all-time high, forcing us to turn away over 200 applicants for several events. This problem is what ultimately drove us to come up with a solution. The Players Series allows us to focus on the players we have had to turn away, giving priority to all boys 13-18 outside of the top 75 of the Heritage Classic Foundation Rankings. All girls 13-18 are eligible to compete in the Players Series.”

Players Series events will be included in the Heritage Classic Foundation Rankings. The Players Series is uniquely designed with its own separate rankings system, which will reward players based on end of the year final standings. All Players Series events will be included in the separate rankings, as well as all state-wide SCJGA One-Days such as the President’s Day One-Day.

The year-long points race will give all Players Series competitors the opportunity to earn exemptions into the SCJGA’s 2023 major championships, excluding the Bobby Chapman Junior Invitational. The top finisher in the boys and girls standings at the end of 2022 will be “fully-exempt” into all SCJGA 2023 major championships. Full exemption earns players the right to compete in high-profile Championships such as the Sea Pines Junior Heritage, the Blade Junior Classic and the Beth Daniel Junior Azalea. Other exemptions into SCJGA majors will also be awarded to players depending on final Players Series Rankings and SCJGA majors exemption availability.

In addition to the year-long points race which rewards long term commitment to the series, immediate rewards will also be given to 2022 Players Series Champions. Champions of each 2022 Players Series event will earn exemptions into all 2022 Players Series events, as well as exemption status into the 2022 Upstate Junior Classic, 2022 Harvey Brock Orange Jacket Classic and 2022 Fall Challenge.
