(No matter what there Points Standing is. This has always been a way to encourage and promote junior players to compete at world championships. Rules for the age protected divisions superceedes all other requirements)
Wyatt -you are missing the important change I was talking about it now has a YEAR listed instead of ALL juniors as it used to be - keeping JUNIORS born BEFORE 1998 from entering if they just played a PDGA Event in the previous year as it had always been and CHANGING it for those born BEFORE 1998 to having to not only have played a PDGA Event in the previous year, but having to have a minimum amount of points - meaning playing 3-4-5-6 (Depending on how bad a player you were) PDGA Events to get the same invitation you used to get by just being a JUNIOR OF ANY AGE member and playing 1 PDGA Event.
By the time this info came out - there is no time for JUNIORS born BEFORE 1998 to earn points in most areas of the country as this time of year PDGA sanctioned Events are winding down or do not have divisions suitable to be able to make any points (such as playing ADV women or Pro Women where you would only earn 1 point for playing.
So long story short - the criteria HAS changed and with no advance notice it possibly WOULD BE changing until it was practically too late for people to try to qualify for the NEWLY CHANGED criteria.
