In 2013, the IGA added three events to its schedule that adopt the TEE IT FORWARD philosophy. These events will be the IGA “Classic” Tournaments and will be played parallel to an IGA State Championship. The IGA Men’s Mid-Am Classic (minimum Handicap Index 7.5) played with the IGA Men’s Mid-Amateur State Championship. The IGA’s goal in offering the Classic is to provide opportunities for golfers who typically do not compete in IGA State Championship events to have some fun and experience an IGA competition.
