Picking tournaments based on JGS

I was unaware of my son's ranking until a father of one of his friends commented on his ranking on JGS. He is in the top 50 of his class. Should I be more mindful of how tournaments affect his ranking when choosing his schedule? We were blissfully unaware up until this point and seemed to work out. He is only 12 so I don't even know if I should care at this point.

    Play against the strongest fields.

    There's definitely something more important that I should be doing.

    At 12 the best thing you can do is focus on them getting better scores. Lower you score diff and the ranking gets better.

    When they get older worry about the tournaments they play.

    What year is he?

    Class of 2027 doesn't even have 50 kids who qualify and class of 2026 has 93 total

    He said his boy was 12... I'm guessing 2025 of which there are more than 250.

    If he is 12 you need to be very aware of the tournaments. When I have more time I will appropriately respond.

    He is 2024.

    Tough class to rank high in. #4 is a former DCP champion (he used to live near us), #10 was on The Short Game (Esquire TV Show), #8 is a really good player we used to play with, #24 is another local kid that my son played with on a PGA Jr League Team with until he went and joined a private course.

    Yes, it is a tough class. My son has had a good season playing in some of our PGA sections' two day tournaments in the 12-18 division and scoring well. He has also won some two day tournaments.

    Recently I would say we have focused solely on SOF. No need to pay or play in a tournament that has 1 out of 10 kids ranked on JGS. Juniors have shelf lives per year and only a certain of tournaments in them.
