GAP Players Series offers exemptions into 2021 Majors
REGISTER: Jericho National (June 29) | French Creek (July 21) | Green Valley (July 29)
With several 2020 GAP Majors set to be invitational-only due to schedule adaptions, GAP sought out a way to create future opportunity for those who lost current opportunities.
The Association has announced the GAP Players Series, which will offer chances to earn early entry into 2021 GAP Majors.
The top three finishers at each event, in addition to ties, will earn exemptions into next year’s GAP Middle-Amateur Championship (if 25 years or older), BMW Philadelphia Amateur Championship and Joseph H. Patterson Cup. Players are eligible to compete in only one Players Series event. In addition, those who compete in a 2020 GAP Major will not be eligible to play in a Players Series event.
Registration for the three-event Series is now open. First up on the slate is a June 29 date at Jericho National Golf Club, followed by July 21 at French Creek Golf Club and lastly July 29 at Green Valley Country Club.
“Due to the COVID-19 situation and the revamped schedule, many players didn’t have the chance to qualify for this year’s Majors. With the GAP Players Series, we’re hoping to give those players a deserved chance to further compete this season,” said GAP Director of Competitions Kirby Martin. “All three events will be held at fantastic GAP venues, and with so many talented players in the region, we expect exciting competition at each.”
Register today and play for Major opportunities.
