The Minnesota PGA Junior Golf Tournament Committee has been making change this offseason for the betterment of the ‘Sota Series junior experience. One of the changes we have made is to open the ‘Sota Series Match Play Championship to ALL Junior Tour and Players Tour Members starting in the 2020 season. The championship field for the ‘Sota Series Match Play Championship will be comprised of 64 boys and 16 girls and be determined through a set of qualifiers and exempt player registration. The number of successful spots at each qualifying site will depend upon how many junior boys and girls register for that specific site. Juniors will find out how many spots are available at each qualifier after the deadline date of Tuesday, June 9.
The Boys ‘Sota Series Match Play Championship will be taking place Monday, July 20 – Wednesday, July 22. The Girls ‘Sota Series Match Play Championship will be played Tuesday, July 21 – Wednesday, July 22.
- Each ‘Sota Series Match Play Qualifier is an 18-hole individual stroke play event
- $50.00 entry fee
- Registration is on a first come, first serve basis and juniors can start registering on Friday, April 10 at 9:00 a.m. CST
- Entry deadline for the event will be Tuesday, June 9 at 11:59 p.m. (CST) – If the qualifiers did not fill
The entry fee for juniors attempting to qualify for the ‘Sota Series Match Play Championship is $50.00. If a junior successfully advances from the qualifier to the Championship, an additional $25.00 entry fee will be incurred.
