Welcome to Junior Amateur Golf Scholars (JAGS)!

Since 2000, the JAGS Tour served as a true grass root effort to benefit the junior golf community by conducting monthly no cut and no qualifying nationally ranked golf tournaments in the western United States open to all players wanting to play with no membership requirement.

Amateurs must be careful about playing in competitions where prize money is awarded (USGA/Steven Gibbons)

Rule 3-1 in the Rules of Amateur Status states that if an amateur golfer plays in a competition where prize money is offered, without waiving his right to prize money, he forfeits his amateur status. If a golfer forfeits his amateur status, he cannot participate in competitions as an amateur until he is reinstated to amateur status by the USGA. Inquiries received by the USGA indicate that some golfers have misconceptions about Rule 3-1. The following examples are designed to clarify whether a player has played for prize money and therefore breached Rule 3-1.

If a player enters a competition by completing an entry form on which he specifically indicates he is a professional (e.g., checking a box indicating he is entering the competition as a professional) or if the competition is limited to professional golfers, it does not matter if prize money is awarded in the competition or if the player wins any money in the competition. The player would be in breach of Rule 2-1, because he has entered as a professional and would forfeit his amateur status.

If a player enters a competition where prize money is to be awarded, but there is nothing on the entry form that requires the player to indicate whether he is entering as a professional or an amateur, he is deemed to be playing for prize money in breach of Rule 3-1.
