Selection Process for Connecticut State Team

The USGA Women's State Team Championship grew out of the Association's Centennial Celebration in 1995. Each state is represented by non-collegiate, amateur golfers and the event is held every two years.  SNEWGA and CWGA have developed a selection process to choose the team that will represent Connecticut in the USGA Women’s Team Championship.  The next USGA Women’s Team Championship will be held in 2017 at The Club at Las Campanas in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

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).

USGA Events: Amateur, Mid-Amateur, Public Links, Senior Amateur, Junior Amateur, U.S. Open

Points will be awarded to CT amateurs as follows:
Site Winner         75 points
Site Qualifier      50 points
Site Alternate     25 points

For each level of play that the player advances in subsequent events that she has qualified for, she will receive 50 points (e.g., 50 points for each round of match play, 50 points for additional qualifying for match play).

Site Qualifying is considered the first round of the event.  A player earns the points for the highest level reached.  Local and Sectional qualifiers are considered separate events.  For each level of play that the player advances, including each round of match play, she will receive 50 points.
Players should notify the committee about results in events the committee would not be monitoring in due course of its Connecticut mission, particularly USGA events.
The State Team Selection Committee will use this point system as a guideline. Additional intangible factors also will be part of the selection process including, but not limited to:
  • Participation and results in Connecticut events
  • Sportsmanship
  • Scores Posted

Revised:  July 2016
