84th Connecticut Open Championship

Tournament Info

Alternate List & Policy

The CSGA will be utilizing the following alternate system for the 2018 Connecticut Open:

Alternate positions earned at qualifying are site specific.  In the event that a qualified player withdraws, the first alternate from that qualifying site will be offered that spot.  If the first alternate is no longer available that spot is offered to the second alternate.  If both the first and second alternates from a specific site are unavailable the spot will be offered to the highest ranked player on the overall priority list.  

The overall priority list is used originally to fill the field to a maximum of 150 competitors in a case where a yet to be determined spot (i.e. 2018 Connecticut Junior Amateur champion, 2018 Connecticut Senior Open champion)  is unable to compete.  The overall priority list is also used to fill spots for a qualifying player that has withdrawn from a site where both the first and second alternate have already been placed in the field or are unavailable. The overall priority ranking is done by randomly drawing qualifying site names with first alternates then redrawing qualifying site names with second alternates to fill the order from 1-10.

Alternates are permitted to be on site during the championship proper to fill any last minute no-shows or withdrawals.  The on site alternates will be placed in the field based on a first come first serve priority.
