We are currently on a waitlist for one of the regional events. I don't have high expectations for getting in but in y'alls expeerence what would the odds be of getting in. Currently sitting at number 2. Just trying to plan around it as much as I can.

I've only been on the waiting list once.  My son was 5th and got in just a few days before the event.  It's really hard to say whether your daughter will get in, but being 2nd on the wait list she probably has a good chance.  When is the event?

Here is the cancellation policy for regionals:
  • All cancellation requests submitted outside of eight weeks from the first round of the Championship will receive the entry fee minus $50.
  • All cancellation requests submitted outside of four weeks from the first round of the Championship will receive the entry fee minus $125.
  • All cancellation requests submitted inside four weeks from the first round of the Championship will not receive a refund.

only a few days, yeah that wouldnt work well since its in another state. That wouldnt work well for travel arrangements.  Time will tell. The event the Hoilday Classic which is a couple of days before Christmas.

Seems reasonable that there might be a wait list for a Regional tourney due to demand.  Of all things, my kid got wait-listed at a local last weekend (was #1 on the list) and didn't get in. We played at our home course (The Bridges) anyway that day and he shot his best there of -2.

Best of luck and I hope there are enough spots for your kid to get into the tourney. :golfer:

Have been in on waiting lists for Locals in Florida.  Got in both times.  I would guess that if you were second on the waiting list that you are going to get in.  The 12 year old World Champion this year was on the waiting list and got in two days before the tournament.

We were wait listed for a regional at #2, we did get in after just a couple days.  I would think a regional is more likely to get in since there's usually travelling involved for a number of the players, making scheduling a little more difficult.
Local tournaments are probably much harder to get in from the wait list since everyone's local.
