All boys and girls between the ages of 8-18 are eligible to participate on the HJGT. Once a player has begun attending college he or she will no longer be able to compete regardless of age. The following are the 2018 age divisions and approximate yardages at which they will compete:
Tiger Woods Division | Boys 16-18
Will Smith Division | Boys 14-15
Ernie Els Division | Boys 11-13
Bryson DeChambeau | Boys Under 10
Justin Timberlake Division | Girls 14-18
Justin Rose Division | Girls under 13
*The player of the year (top points earner) from each division and each division winner from the Summer World Championship will be invited to sit down together with their respective division ambassador for an intimate, 30-minute sit-down, and will be flown to a city of the ambassador’s choosing for the meeting. Boys U10 ambassador will be announced soon.
*Caddies only allowed for Girls under 13 and Boys under 10 divisions.
*A player’s age division is determined by his/her age during round two. A player can move up during the middle of the season. For example, if a player is 15 and turns 16 during the middle of the season, they will play the remainder of the season from the 16-18 division. Points do not roll over to another division. Players can earn points in two age divisions.
*In the event the Boys 10 and under or Girls 13 and under divisions have one player in the field, that player will be moved up one division automatically.
