NEW DIVISION STRUCTURE FOR 2022

The Kentucky PGA Junior Tour has finalized its divisions and the yardages for those divisions ahead of the 2022 season. The exact divisions remain close to what they were for the 2021 season, except the oldest division for both boys and girls is now 16-18. The next oldest division will be titled the 13-15 Division rather than the 14 & Under Division. For the younger players, there are no changes to the divisions themselves, but six-hole rounds have been eliminated. All players will now play nine-hole rounds at minimum. This change has been made based off feedback from participants surrounding value and the ability to maximize the tournament experience. 

Boys Divisions:

  • Boys 16-18 (18 holes)
  • Boys 13-15 (18 holes)
  • Boys 11-12 (9 holes)
  • Boys 10 & Under (9 holes)
  • Boys 8 & Under (9 holes)

Girls Divisions:

  • Girls 16-18 (18 holes)
  • Girls 13-15 (18 holes)
  • Girls 10-12 (9 holes)
  • Girls 9 & Under (9 holes)

NEW YARDAGES FOR 2022 SEASON

A significant change has been made for the 2022 season surrounding the Tour's yardages. In two-day tournaments the 13-15 and 16-18 Divisions will play from the same tees. This allows us to provide our players with more national recognition and a competitive environment to increase their skill level. As a result, players will have the opportunity to compete for more AJGA stars and strength of field for Junior Golf Scoreboard will increase.
