Joint Qualifying Structure

Players have the option to enter 7 different Met Area qualifiers that will determine the fields for both the Met Amateur and Ike Championship. The entry fee is $140 to enter one qualifier for one of the two Championships. IF a player would like to try and qualify for both Championships, the player would pay an additional $60 which must be paid in advance of the round. Once entered into a qualifier for both championships, the player's score for that day will count towards each respective tournament qualifying.

There will be a different percentage of the field qualifying for each Championship based upon total entry numbers. More qualifying positions will be available for the Ike due to the starting field size of the respective Championships. Qualifying numbers will be released before play begins on the morning of each qualifier.

Please note individual qualifier numbers will vary from the total field size due to the nature of the joint qualifiers, all qualifying numbers will be allocated accordingly. Players may NOT play in two different qualifiers for each of the two different events.
