YCAGA ANNOUNCEMENT ON 2013 TOURNAMENT FORMAT CHANGES AND WAR OF THEROSES POINTS.
MATCH PLAY - AMATEUR AND SENIOR DIVISION
Do the limited participation in this event the following format changes begin in 2013. Beginning in 2013 (this year). Each Division will consist of two or more flights - Championship Flight and First Flight (possible more flights depending on the entries). The Championship Flight will be a 32 player flight for the Amateur Division and a 16 player flight for the Senior Division.
Amateur Divison - Championship Flight (32 player) First Flight (minimum 8 players) - The Championship Flight will be determined by a player's handicap. The prior format providing that those individuals who were in the top 12 point total's for the prior year will automatically receive rankings of 1 - 12. (Note - if only 5 players from the prior year top 12 enter, they will be ranked 1 - 5) All other positions will be ranked according to their verified USGA handicap.
First Flight - We will create a first flight for all other players entered in the tournament - where there is at least 8 players.
Senior Divison - Championship Flight (16 players) First Flight (minimum 8 players) - Player rankings will be determined by their verified USGA handicap index. The low 16 will be placed in the Championship Flight, a First Flight will be created for all other entries providing we have at least 8 additional entries. NOTE: If there are a minimum of 30 entries received - we will expand the Championship Flight to a 32 player field.
Additionally you will note that the time frame has been shortened to two weeks (14 days) between matches. This is being done so that the event will conclude in August of each year.
ETZWEILER FAMILY FUNERAL SERVICES CHAMPION OF CHAMPIONS
We are returning partially to a past format. Currently the tournament is a Gross and Net tournament with two flights - Championship Flight and Super Senior Flight. Beginning in 2013 the Championship Flight and the Super Senior Flight will also have "AGE" Flights, based on the entries. Example Championship Flight - Age Flights 18 - 49 and 50 and higher Super Senior Flight - Age Flights 60 - 64, 65 - 70 70 and higher. NOTE: THE FLIGHTS WILL BE DETERMINED BASED ON THE ENTRIES RECEIVED.
APPLE AUTOMOTIVE YORK COUNTY JUNIOR CHAMPIONSHIP
This event will now have a Boys Championship and a Girls Championship with each producing a York County Champion. The format for the girls division will be the same as currently used for the boys division. 12 and under will play a 9 hole tournament - 13 - 14 will play an 18 hole tournament, 15 - 17 will play an 18 hole tournament . There will be a cut line determined from the players in the 13 & 14 year old flight as well as the 15 - 17 year old flight. The players above the cut line will then play an additional 9 holes and the score from this additional nine combined with the players first 18 hole score will determine the York County Champion.
NOTE: The girls will play from the gold tees for all 27 holes.
WAR OF THE ROSES POINTS
Beginning in 2013 "Royal Manchester's two day Open Event" will be eligible for War of the Roses points.
2013 will be the last year where the cut off for War of the Roses points is the Quality Digital's Your County Amateur. Beginning in 2014 the cut off will be following the (correction) YCAGA Mid-Amateur Championship. The effect of this change is that the only tournaments where the points will carry over will be the Etzweiler Champion of Champions - Possibly the Match Play (depending on size of brackets) and the Two Man Scramble plus any State, Local or USGA tournaments which are played after the Champion of Champions.
This change has been made as we felt the current schedule placed to much weight on a players play at the end of the prior year as opposed to his play leading up to the War of the Roses.
This change will have no effect on Player of the Year or Senior Player of the Year Points.
