for the 2017 Connecticut State Team
The USGA Women's State Team Championship will be held September 26-28, 2017 at The Club at Las Campanas in Santa Fe, New Mexico. This is the last year for this tournament as the USGA has decided to retire this championship. The CSGA is providing full financial support to this year’s team, one of two major changes, for this, the last year. The second change is related to the selection of the team. The first two players will be selected base on points earned as outlined in the tournaments below. The third member of the team will be selected by a committee comprised of members from CSGA, CWGA and SNEWGA.
As always, Connecticut residents will accumulate points over a two-year period. Selection will be based on a two-year point total equaling the sum of 25% of the player’s earned points during the first year (2016) and 75% of the player’s earned points during the second year (2017). Year one begins with any qualifying tournament as listed below that occurs after the team has been selected for the previous championship and continues through August. Dates may vary slightly each year based on the USGA deadline for submission of the state team.
Points will be awarded to the top amateur players residing in CT as below.
In the event that two or more players tie, the points for the places will be added and divided equally. For example, if two players tie for 7th place at the CT Open, each player would be awarded 35 points (add points for both 7th & 8th place and divide by two).
