The MSGA will honor a Player of the Year and a Senior Player of the Year at the Annual Meeting in November of each year. Players will recieve points based on the player's finishing place in certain Championships, and the amateur player who accumulates the greatest number of points will be the "Player of the Year", and the Senior amateur with the most points will be the "Senior Player of the Year".
In order to earn points, contestants must be amateur golfers who are current members of the club they represent and whose club is a current member in good standing of the MSGA. This includes being in compliance with USGA/MSGA Handicap Certification Program. Points will be awarded only for the gross portion of any event.
A "Regular Player" is an eligible player 54 years of age or younger. A "Senior Player" is an eligible player 55 years of age or older. Players must have reached their 55th birthday prior to the start of any event. Points earned will count toward their respective age division's accumulative points list.
Points earned by senior players in non-senior points events will be awarded points toward their senior cumulative points list. Points earned by players 50-54 for the MSGA Senior Open or the USGA Senior Open "ONLY" will be applied to the regular points list.
All points will be assigned by the MSGA based on official results.
