The MSGA will honor a Player of the Year and a Senior Player of the Year at its annual meeting every November. Players will earn points based on their finishing position and/or qualification for certain state, regional, and national championships. The player who accumulates the most points will be awarded the distinction of “Player of the Year,” and the senior player who accumulates the most points will be honored as the “Senior Player of the Year.”
In order to earn points, contestants must be amateur golfers who are current members of the club they represent and whose club is a current member in good standing of the MSGA. This includes complying with the USGA/MSGA Handicap Certification Program. Points will only be awarded for the gross portion of any event.
A “Regular Player” is an eligible player 54 years of age or younger. A “Senior Player” is an eligible player 55 years of age or older. Players must have reached their 55th birthday prior to the start of any event to be awarded Senior POY points. Points earned will count toward their respective age division’s accumulative points list.
Points earned by senior players in non-senior points events will be awarded points toward the senior cumulative points list. Points earned by players 50-54 for the MSGA Senior Open or the USGA Senior Open will be applied ONLY to the regular points list.
All points will be assigned by the MSGA based on official results.
