Q4: When should I register for tournaments?
Answer: You can register for tournaments any time up to 5 days before the event. Registration for each tournament closes at midnight five days before the tournament.
Q5: I registered for a tournament but it said I was put on the wait list. What does that mean?
Answer: We have a limited number of player positions in each event. When we reach that number of players, any additional players are put on the wait list. If any players drop out, players from the wait list are entered into the tournament in the order that they registered. We will send you an e-mail to let you know you are in the event. Sometimes we are able to expand the field to fit players in. We work hard to get everyone in the field that wants to play, but there are no guarantees.
Q1: What is date used to determine a player's age for putting them in a division?
Answer: A player's age is evaluated as of the date of our first tournament. The player is placed in a division based on their age the day of the first event.
Q2: This is my first year playing on LCJGT, but I've played in other tournaments. Do I have to start in the Silver Division?
Answer: It depends. If you can provide evidence that you have shot a qualifying score in a sanctioned tournament you can request to move up to the Gold Division to start the season. For boys, you need to have shot a score of 82 or better. For girls you need to have shot a score of 92 or better. And for 9-12 year olds, if you shot a score of 55 or better you can move up to the Bronze Division.
