What age limit does the NCGA set for Senior points tournaments?

A player must be 55 years of age or older by the start of the championship to receive senior points and to be eligible for the Senior Player of the Year award. We recognize that some senior events set their limit at 50 years of age. If a player between 50 to 54 earns points in any senior point tournament, the player will not receive points on either (regular or senior) list. The order of finish among players 55 and older will determine the distribution of points. For example, if a player 50 to 54 finishes first, the player would NOT receive those points towards the regular points list, and the points will go to the highest finish among the 55 and older players.
