Osborne Series

New for 2012

The new Osborne Series will allow North Coast Junior Tour members to play 36-hole events and earn Junior Golf Scoreboard (“JGS”) points.  JGS is a highly regarded ranking service that has become the standard for junior golfers around the world.  Building a status within the world rankings is essential to gaining entry into invitationals and AJGA events.  The new Osborne Series will also post its results with the Golfweek/Titleist ranking service.

Here’s the JGS Ranking Guidelines:   

 UNDERSTANDING THE RANKINGS

To be eligible to be ranked in The Junior Golf Scoreboard rankings a player must meet the following criteria.

  1. Have competed in four multi-day stroke play tournaments within the last 365 days for which we have received the results and they are listed by the same name and hometown.
  2. Have their high school graduation year in their tournament record. Missing yours? Read next paragraph.
  3. Still be in high school or prior to August 1st after graduation.
  4. Have competed in an age group that:
  • a. completes at least 36 holes,
  • b. has a minimum of 5 competitors that complete all scheduled rounds,
  • c. has played from a minimum of 4,500 yards and not shorter than the forward most USGA rated tees, and
  • d. there is no stroke limit rule in place.

 Here’s how it works for us:

We will combine our Tuesday and Thursday tournaments each week into an event.  Their are 7 weeks or 7 series event on the regular tour schedule, plus the Tour Championship (which also qualifies as a ranked event).  That makes 8 events to build your status in the junior golf world…all right here in Northeast Ohio.
