Men's Amateur Points System
Men's Amateur Points System
Players earn points through FSGA and USGA competitions. Points are used to determine the Player of the Year, Florida Cup teams, the USGA State team, the SE Challenge team and exemptions into state championships. Points are not awarded after qualifying (Exception: US Open Local qualifying). Rather, only when a player actually starts the championship.

* Indicates Championships that use the match play format. Players earn points based off the last round of match play they reach (Ex. If a player loses in the quarter-finals, they would earn the points associated with quarter-finalists).
The FSGA Championship Committee will select players for Player-of-the-Year Awards (Junior, Amateur and Senior) and players for team competitions. The Committee will consider all factors including standings on points lists (Championship Points List, Two Year Points List and Florida Junior Tour Points List) and player’s success in FSGA, USGA and other select Championships of similar status. The Amateur Player of the Year Award may be a player of any age.
