2017 WPGA Senior Series
Conducted by the Western Pennsylvania Golf Association
This WPGA Senior Series will consist of four 18-hole events throughout the season, and will culminate with the 36 hole Western Pennsylvania Senior Amateur and Super Senior Amateur Championships at Allegheny Country Club on October 9 & 10 of 2017. Contestants in each of these championships need not compete in the WPGA Senior Series to enter the Senior Amateur or Super Senior Amateur.
Each event will consist of Senior and Super Senior divisions that will be run concurrently. Each will identify an overall gross champion in a Senior and Super-Senior division.
In 2017, the Senior Four-Ball Championship will be conducted independently of the Men’s Four-Ball Championship and will now include a Super-Senior division. The Senior Four-Ball will count toward the Senior Series Champion.
The WPGA Senior Series will reward a season long Series Champion based on points accumulated throughout the golf season in each WPGA Senior Series event, the Senior Four-Ball Championship and Senior Amateur Championship. A season long Senior Series Champion will be awarded in both Senior division (age 55 & over) and a Super-Senior division (age 65 & over). The Senior Series points list is completely independent of the WPGA Senior Honor Roll which determines the Senior Player of the Year. Players will gain points in the respective division in which they compete. Players age 65 & over may choose to compete in the Senior division if they wish. Divisions will play from different sets of tees in each competition. The series champions will receive a trophy, prize, exemption to the next Western PA Amateur Championship (senior division only) and an invitation to the Hall of Fame &Champions dinner. The top 20 in both Senior & Super-Senior points will gain preferred entry into the Senior Amateur Championship at Allegheny Country Club.
