How Does the Points System Work?
At the 2008 Year End Meeting and Elections, the members and BOD in attendance voted to award So Cal Series Points as follows:
So Cal Series Champions and points leaders are determined as follows:
· The best five finishes in a division are used to determine the So Cal Series standings. Highest number of points is the winner.
· The best four finishes in a division are used to determine the So Cal Series standings. Highest number of points is the winner. Top Finishers will receive awards.
SO CAL MEMBERSHIP REQUIRED
· Player must be a registered member of So Cal prior to the start of an event to be awarded So Cal Series points for that event.
· Player earns 5 points for every 18 holes completed (Excluding Final 9 and overtime playoffs). This makes all 54 hole events earn the same points. Example – 2 rounds of 27 OR 3 rounds of 18 = 15 points.
· Player earns 1 point for each person in their division that they beat or tie. 1 Extra performance point will be awarded for a first place tournament victory.
· Players in the So Cal Championships receive one bonus point for every So Cal Series event they completed. Players can earn a maximum bonus award of 10 bonus points – even if they play in more than 10 tournaments.
· Bonus points will only be awarded to players that compete in the So Cal Championships. If a player competes in both Am and Pro divisions, they will only receive bonus points for one division.
· DNF: You will receive ZERO points for the entire tournament if you do not finish every required round of the tournament.
