For example, if a player is 13 years old and in the Bantam Division (based on MJT's static age of August 31st) but they are 12 based on FCG's age date of July 19, so competing for a 11-12 year old spot (Peewee division), the player’s score in the Bantam division will be adjusted by the differential between score and course rating to determine their qualifying score against those in the Peewee division.
The IMG Academy Junior World Championships - Florida Challenge was launched in December 2014 as a sister event to the world-renowned IMG Academy Junior World Golf Championships (San Diego).
The event has featured over 200 players from over 30 different countries in previous years. There is no cut - all players are guaranteed three rounds of golf against some of the best junior competition in the world!
