State Exemptions

State Exemptions 2022

To earn a State Championship exemption, boys & girls must meet one of the following criteria:

  • Top-5 from previous year’s points list
  • Current year overall champion at the State Match Play. Western, Eastern and Players Open
  • Previous year’s overall boys and girls state champions
  • Qualify to play in the current year USGA Jr. Amateur

The following players are exempt into THE 2022 STATE CHAMPIONSHIP if they so choose.

All exempt players must play in at least one Sub-District event, or in the event they do not play in a Sub-District they play in at least two WJGA sanctioned spring events (Match Play, Western/Eastern/Players Opens, & Jr. World Qualifier) to be eligible to use their exemption.

Note: The WJGA may, in unique circumstances, waive the Sub-District requirement for a player who is unable to play in a Sub-District due to conflicts with qualifying and competing in the Junior World National Championship in San Diego. In that case the WJGA Junior World Qualifier may count as fulfilling the player’s Sub-District requirement.
