    Well i guess it is a big comp but it is just to start the season off. I suppose it is a bit less during the middle of season. And most of the time its in pro shop vouchers but im not sure about the weekend. When the entry fee is small its about £3 so the prize money is a bit less but it depends on how many people play.And this weeekend its a two day.

    In the U.S junior competitors can't compete for prize money!!!! we can recieve gifts from the tournament before the round but we can't play for money!!!

    Where I live in the U.S. we can accept prize money, but for the restricted high school eligability standards that we have to follow, we can only accept $100 in cash or value from August- July (i.e. what they deem a "school calendar year"). We basically enter tournaments and if we finish in the money, it gets contributed back into the general tournament fund and distributed back out to the other competitiors.

    Now as far as having expenses paid, there are some pretty crazy channels that money has to go through and only the best junior golfers will ever see any of it. Money has to be sent to state or regional golf headquarters (i.e. the PNGA where I live) and then distributed out through there. The only problem with that is that if a family friend of mine wanted to contribute money they would have to send money to the office and then I would have to get lucky and have the office volunteer that money to me. Money sent for paying for junior golf expenses can't be earmarked for a certain person. It makes it difficult for anyone but the upper tier players to get any financial help. It's a very crazy rule. We'd be better off if they said, "no prize money what so ever and no paid expenses."

    USGA regulates all of the United States amateur rules. The USGA prevents anyone from receiving any compensation for anything related to golf winnings, or endorsement of a product. I.E. you cannot receive compensation if you are advertising for a product that you play as well you cannot win any money in any tournament whatsoever. And the NCAA goes even further with that in that you can no longer directly receive any clubs from manufacturers all clubs, balls etc. must be sent through your coach once you are enrolled at a college and on their team. Otherwise forfeiture of your amateur status as well as your NCAA eligibility occurrs. Kinda sux, but I'll just have a busy coach next yr. lol.
  • I live in Washington and we compete for scholarship money, first place is usually $100-$200 and it goes down for the top 10 to about $20.

    I play in the same tournaments and I'm pretty sure this is one of the few ways junior golfers can actually win "money." I wish that a few more tournaments would get scheduled soon.

    Over here in UK i think R&A say that £500 is the max or you have to give up amateur status. I'm pretty sure it is the same for juniors.
