Eligibility

Exemptions

The Gator Invitational provides exemptions to the top-6 finishers (and ties) in the previous year’s events. Additionally, in order to provide avenues for entry for some of our region’s better junior players, exemptions are offered at the following events:

  • 2019 Future Masters – Top finishing non-2019 graduate (ties resolved by JGS)
  • 2019 Future Tour Championship – Top finishing non-2019 graduate (ties resolved by JGS)
  • 2019 Bubba Conlee – Top finishing non-2019 graduate (ties resolved by JGS)
  • 2019 Mississippi Jr Am – Champion
  • 2019 Alabama Jr Am – Champion
  • 2019 Randy Watkins Junior – Top 2 non-exempt finishers (ties resolved by JGS)
  • 2019 SJGT Tournament of Champions – Overall Winner
  • Sponsor Invites - Up to 2 sponsor invitations.

Invitations

All players must submit an application to be considered for an invitation.  After the exemptions are filled and confirmed, we will fill out the remainder of the 57 player field using the following priority levels. The Tournament Committee will use these priority levels as a guide when determining which applicants receive invitations to the event. This is only a guide and inclusion in one level does NOT guarantee an invitation to the event. However, our selections will closely follow these Priority Levels. We will also try to update our website with the number of applications received from each priority level to give you an idea of where the field may cut. If the field is not filled with players falling into these priority levels then the remaining spots will be filled using the best judgement of the Tournament Committee.
