MJT MAJOR QUALIFIERS AND INTERNATIONAL EVENTS
(These qualifiers and opportunities are for members only)

The Maple Leaf Junior Golf Tour has a mandate to expose players to top competition for gaining experience and building great playing resumes. Since 1999 we have qualified players for many major national and international junior tournaments and provided financial assistance for expenses.

Since 2006, TuGo, one of Canada's leading providers of travel and health insurance products and services, has been designated the Official International Travel Partner of the MJT. Support includes outfitting junior golfers attending international events through the MJT, and providing optional assistance with travel insurance and travel planning.

IMPORTANT: Due to the nature of international events, amendments may occur and qualifiers may change without notice.

NOTE: TIE BREAKER FORMAT: In the event of a tie for an international exemption, the tie breaker will be a combination of Best 3 MJT Order of Merit Finishes and Scoring Average to determine the recipient. 


The MJT International Players Series was introduced in 2015 to offer MJT members the opportunity to qualify and compete at a higher level against provincially and nationally ranked players. These major junior opportunities for MJT members will help get players recognized by college coaches in both the United States and Canada.

The 2021 season offers the following high caliber invitational events for MJT members to test their game at the next level.

Junior America's Cup - Team BC and Alberta (Cancelled for 2021)
The Powder Horn GC
Sheridan, Wyoming
July 25 - 29, 2021

The MJT is excited to be qualifying players and the host organization for both the Alberta and British Columbia Junior America's Cup Teams (Men's). 

In 1959 there was an amateur biannual event between amateur teams from the three countries, which was disbanded in the mid 60’s, that did not involve juniors and the JAC had not been organized. The original JAC started as matches between the Mexican, Alberta and the Southern California Junior Golf Associations with each association hosting every 3 years.
 
With the 2021 dates and site secured and a lot of preparation already underway, the championship will be played at the Powder Horn Golf Club, in Sheridan Wyoming, hosted by the Wyoming State Golf Association, July 25-29, 2021.
 
We will update qualifiers soon.

Events listed as the IMG Junior Worlds Qualifier (excluding MJT mini Tour)  will shortlist players in the following age divisions for both Girls and Boys: 11-12, 13-14, 15-17 for the IMG Academy Junior Worlds Golf Championship in San Diego, California from 6 national events.  The finalists will be chosen according to lowest differential between total score and total course rating.

** NOTE:  These are not direct exemptions but are short-listed positions.

Direct Qualifier Information - Mini Tour

The MJT will offer direct entry into the IMG Academy Junior World Golf Championship for one boy, one girl ages 7-8 and 9-10 at each qualifying location.  

Players will play in the appropriate age division as at August 31, 2021.  Qualifying scores will be determined based on the players score in relation to par, with the low differential earning the direct qualifying spot. 

AGE AND BIRTHDAY QUALIFYING NOTE (ALL QUALIFIERS):  If your birthday is between the IMG Junior Worlds qualifying date of July 15 and MJT's static date of August 31, you have the option to play down in the appropriate age division for this qualifier but you will forfeit the opportunity to win prizes or OOM points in your regular age division for this event, e.g. a 9 year old who turns 10 on, say, July 25, may choose to play in the 8U division at the qualifier, off the shorter tees, but will forfeit their chance to win prizes in their regular 9-10 division. They would only be competing for the qualifying position.
