Starting Time Consideration

*TPA member may request preferential consideration for starting times Day 1 (early, late) by contacting the AGA Tournament Dept. prior to the tournament entry deadline. *Note – it is common practice for Rd. 1 pairings to be composed of lowest handicap players teeing off first (or #1 for shotgun starts), ascending to highest handicap players later in the pairings. TPA members making requesting a preferential starting time should be aware that such a request may result in playing with players of different skill levels and not all requests will be accommodated.
