NEW 2020 A Player will compete in the age division based on his age as of April 20, 2020. This date will determine his age division placement for the entire 2020 Senior Series Season.
The Senior Series Tour was started by the MGA in 2006 to provide male amateur golfers over the age of 50 to compete in events across the State. Each one day event is based on the players age and flight (Net or Gross) All Net flight players must have a current GHIN Handicap Index. The value of the prize pool (gift certificates) at each tournament is established prior to the tournament and is based on participation. The players accumulate points throughout the season to qualify for the Tour Championship and the Ozark Cup Matches against Kansas Senior Series Tour Teams.

How the WHS will affect those competing in the NET Division
+Under the new WHS Handicap Indexes are updated daily (if a score is posted). The Tournament Committee with use the Handicap Index established by a player that was 7 days prior to a SS Event for all competitors. If the tournament is on April 27 we will use your Handicap Index on April 20th.
+All "competition" scores will be posted immediately following the round of play for all players. With the new WHS Exception Score Reduction (Rule 5.9) there is no reason to designate a Tournament Score any longer.
+We will be adhering to the WHS recommendations for stroke play allowances.
All players in the NET Divisions: your course handicap allowance will be adjusted to 95% to a Playing Handicap. (Rule 6.2 & Appendix C)
Example: If a player has a course handicap of 15 then he will have a playing handicap of 14 (95%) for the competition.
