Frequently Asked Questions about online entry
All entries for MWGA Championships and the Two Lady Scramble Tournament will open March 4th, 2013. You will then be able to enter any event online as well as by mail. The following information is to assist you in the online entry process via the USGA Tournament Pairing Program TPP Online. We encourage each player to enter our events online, as mailed entries will have to be hand entered into the system and will take longer to process. We think you'll find the online entry process simple and that the possibility of mistakes or misinformation will now be kept to a minimum. If you do encounter any issues or problems when attempting to enter a tournament, we ask that you call our office at 573-636-8994 for assistance.
