When is the deadline to register?

If you are eligible to apply during the "Open Registration" period, you must do so by March 15, 2022 by registering online and submitting your player history form.

If you are not eligible for the "Open Registration" period, you need to register by the date listed on the registration letter you received from your qualifying event organization.

For more information about your eligibility, see our Entry Policies page.


What is the Player History Form? Am I required to submit it with my registration?

All players who are eligible for the selection process but do not qualify through a designated qualifying tournament must submit a Player History Form. The form allows the committee to review each player and make a decision about their entry status.

If you qualify through a designated qualifier and earn an exemption, you are NOT required to submit the Player History Form.

Do I have to shoot a certain score to qualify for the IMG Academy Junior World Golf Championships?

No. Each qualifying event is allocated a certain number of spots in the various age divisions. The number of spots available will be posted by the host organization.


What if the winner of the qualifying tournament has already earned a spot in the IMG AcademyJunior World Golf Championships?

If the winner of a qualifying event has already secured a spot in the Junior World Golf Championship, then the exemption will trickle to the next player in line.

Do I have to register in person at Torrey Pines during designated registration hours?

Yes. Even though you already registered online, we need you to check in at Torrey Pines (11480 N Torrey Pines Rd, La Jolla, CA) to confirm that you are in town and ready to play. Travel delays are inevitable, so this gives the Tournament Committee the ability to invite another player from the waiting list if necessary.


Do I have to come both Saturday and Sunday?

No. You can pick the day that works best for you. Typically, Saturday is a lighter registration day, as many players plan to register on Sunday afternoon and stay for the Opening Ceremony.


Do I have to register for the IMG Academy Junior World Putting Championship?

No. As a registered golfer, you are already eligible to participate in the putting tournament. Simply head to the putting green after you participate and enjoy! Remember, each player is only given one attempt.


Are caddies permitted during the tournament?

Only 10-Under Division players are permitted to have a caddie during the tournament.

Players in all divisions may use the support of a caddie during the official practice round.


Are spectators permitted during the tournament?

Yes. Spectators are permitted at all golf courses.


When will we receive the pairings for the tournament?

The pairings for the first two rounds of the tournament will be posted HERE at 9 am Saturday before the tournament. Each player will receive a copy of the pairings when they register Saturday or Sunday at Torrey Pines.


What is the "Pin Exchange" ?

The Pin Exchange is a little something fun for the players to do during registration weekend and at the end of their tournament rounds. Players bring small lapel pins that represent their home country, state ,or city and exchange them with the other players they meet.

Participating in the Pin Exchange is not mandatory, but the players typically enjoy the cultural exchange – especially the younger players. We recommend bringing 10 to 20 pins if you are interested in participating.
