Welcome to the 2022 South Beach International Amateur!

We are delighted to invite the top amateur golfers in the world to Miami Beach to compete for the South Beach International Amateur trophy.

The 2021 SBIA field was again one of the strongest in amateur golf, featuring 77 international players in the field of 210 representing 24 countries. It is expected that this year’s field will be ranked #5-#6 for the seventh consecutive year in the worldwide rankings (SPWAR & WAGR). Last year's field featured 192 of the world's "Top 1,000" players.

As has always been the case at the SBIA, all players who made the cut in 2021 will be given conditional exemptions. Currently the list of players who made the cut and highly ranked participants who missed the cut features 218 “Top 1,000” players. With over 85% of previous ranked players coming back to play the SBIA annually, it is obvious that spots in the field will go quickly.

In 2021 85 players made the cut at -1 after round 2. This is the lowest 36 hole cut in SBIA history. In the end Finigan Tilly beat the strongest field in SBIA history posting a 15 under total to win by two strokes.

The South Beach International Amateur is an "open" competition, and we encourage all top amateurs to apply. The tournament will again be limited to 210 of the world's best amateurs. Applications are now being being accepted. For those of you wishing to apply who are not exempt (please see exemption criteria), make sure you email me a playing resume when applying. For those of you, who receive exemption and conditional exemption invitations, pay close attention to the exemption deadline dates. Once an exemption date is passed, players are put in the player pool and will be judged solely by their SPWAR ranking as of the November 11th tournament closing date.

The commitment to continue building on the South Beach International Amateur's success starts with creating a great championship experience for every player. 

For the many of you who will be joining us again, welcome back! For those who come to Miami Beach this December for the first time, we look forward to having you participate!

See you on Miami Beach!
