  • The 12 Regional Championships will culminate in the new Diamond Amateur Championship taking place December 1-7 at Pictona in Holly Hill, FL. Gold Medalists from the Diamond Amateur Championship will earn preregistration (Golden Tickets) to the following year’s National Championships in Indian Wells.

  • Gold and Silver Medalists from the Regional tournaments will earn preregistration into the Diamond Amateur Championship at Pictona.  All other participants from the Regional Tournaments will be eligible for the lottery into the Diamond Amateur Championship.
