Who is the FUNdamental Tour for?
The Philadelphia Junior Tour – FUNdamental Tour is targeted towards boys and girls, ages 7-12 who are just beginning their journey into tournament golf. Setup as a precursor to our main Philadelphia Junior Tour, the FUNdamental Tour aims to provide tournaments to players who’s ability is in the growth stages.
Who is eligible to play on the FUNdamental Tour?
Boys and Girls, 7-12 who are able to score at least 60 and under from 1,500 – 2,200 yards for 9 holes. Each FUNdamental Tour event is open to PJT Developmental Members and Full Junior Tour members that are in the 12 & Under Division (Full PJT Members are not eligible for POY points or medals on the FUNdamental Tour).
What are the main differences in the FUNdamental Tour and the Junior Tour?
The biggest difference in the FUNdamental Tour and the Philadelphia Junior Tour is the setup of the courses at each event. Since the FUNdamental Tour is geared towards a more novice player, each event features reduced yardages, a maximum score of double par and the ability to use a parent caddie. The events are also meant to be less competitive than our standard Junior Tour events, so the emphasis is on fun and game improvement!
