The New England PGA Junior Tour is excited to announce the introduction of its inaugural Four-Ball Series to the 2017 New England PGA Junior Tour. The series will aim to provide an opportunity for young tour members to experience the atmosphere of playing in a tournament setting, while also participating in a team-based event.
We have seen the recent success of team-based golf events, such as the PGA Jr. League, and believe that will transcend into equal success for the Four-Ball Series. This will provide a perfect avenue for players that are looking to gain some tournament experience, and will lead them to success in our many other NEPGA Junior Tour Events.
Four-ball is a competition in which two competitors play as partners, with each playing his/her own ball. The lower score of the partners is the score for the hole. Most Four-Ball Series contests will be 9-hole Stroke Play events.
New England PGA Junior Tour membership & tournament registration is officially open. To register for a NEPGA Junior Tour membership, click here.

NEPGA Jr Tour Four-Ball Series Policies
1) If one partner cancels, the entire team is considered cancelled. If the remaining partner wishes to play he/she must call the office to re-register with a new partner.
2) There will be only one team entry fee, which will be paid by one family/partner.
3) Team Members must be members of the NEPGA Jr Tour and in the SAME age division.
4) Format: Four-Ball: A competition in which two competitors play as partners, each plays his/her own ball. The lower score of the partners is the score for the hole. If one partner fails to complete the play of a hole, there is no penalty.
5) There will be no refunds after the deadline of the tournament.
6) Walk-ons are not permitted (i.e. showing up on the day).
7) Player of the Year points will be awarded and have a heavier scale than a regular one day event. Partners will each receive the full allotment of points for their finishing place. I.e. if a team wins first place, both players will receive 30 points. As normal, ties will be prorated.
8) Tie Break for first place: First place will be decided by a card-off. The New England PGA Junior Golf Program has adopted the method recommended by the USGA Rules of Golf. Please review Appendix 1, Part C, Conditions of Competition, 11(c). This method is commonly referred to as the “last 9, last 6, last 3” method.
