Golf Channel Am Tour Flights
Golf Channel Am Tour is divided into six separate flights and two divisions: Open & Senior.
Senior flights for players 50 and over will be offered at the Senior National Championship but may or may not be available at local events or Majors depending on participation.
Players are flighted initially based upon their lowest and most current USGA® Handicap Index® or based off of their USGA® Trend Handicap Index® with Am Tour which is calculated by entering six (6) scores into the Players Club Account at www.GCAmTour.com.
A current USGA® Handicap Index® includes a minimum of six (6) scores within the past year. Once a Tour Player has completed at least four (4) tournament rounds on the Am Tour, that player will have obtained a Golf Channel Tournament Index, which only factors scores played on the Am Tour. Once obtained, this Tournament Index will be used to coincide with the appropriate flight if it is lower than a player’s USGA® Handicap Index®. Similarly, the Tournament Index may be used to coincide with the appropriate flight if it is higher than a player’s USGA® Handicap Index, however, this request must originate from the player and in accordance with the policies, procedures, and timing explained below.
