The Austin Amateur Golf point system is in place to rank players across three separate divisions (Open, Mid-Amateur and Senior). Throughout the yearly golf calendar, points are used to determine the Player of the Year for each division, as well as Rudy’s I-35 Cup qualifiers (Mid-Am & Senior divisions). Each tournament is based on a specific point scale, determined ultimately by field size and/or field strength.  Points are given for Texas Golf Association and USGA events, however these events are not considered “local events”.


To earn points, each player must meet the following qualifications:

  1. Complete at least two local events from the current year schedule.
  2. A missed cut counts as a completed event.
  3. A withdrawal (WD), disqualification (DQ) or no card (NC) does not count as a completed event.
