Championships: Player of the Year

The MGA annually recognizes outstanding performances by amateur golfers by crowning the Richard D. Haskell Player of the Year, Christopher Cutler Rich Junior Player of the Year and George M. Cohen Senior Player of the Year.

Players earn points throughout the season as outlined by the Player of the Year (POY) system that has been established for each group by the MGA Championship committee. The Players of the Year are honored annually at the Salute to Champions dinner.
