Besides a chance to be the overall Tournament Champion, the Tournament Championship will be a celebration for those that have played well throughout the year. We will again host a team Skins Game on Saturday afternoon, October 23rd. Twelve lucky members will be chosen via Facebook to compete in the Skins Game. This has quickly become a tradition like no other! The Tournament Championship itself will be held on Sunday, October 24th. These two events will be at no cost for all the players that have earned entry into the Tournament Championship.
The Tournament Championship will be broken into 4 flights. The first flight will consist of the top 12 points leaders playing in the event. Every player in this flight will have a mathematical chance to be the player of the year by accumulating the most points through the finish of the Tournament Championship. The other 3 flights will be broken evenly by the number of players remaining in the tournament. As far as the prize money is concerned, Flight 1 will have the largest purse, Flight 2 the second largest, Flight 3 the third largest, and Flight 4 the smallest.
In addition to the prize money, 6 players will receive invitations to an exclusive, all expenses paid golf trip with the golf professionals. The Player of The Year will automatically qualify for the trip as well as the four flight winners. (If the POY wins their flight, then the second place finisher will be invited, and so on.) The sixth and final spot will be the player with lowest net score of the players remaining in Flight 1 that hasn’t already qualified. If the POY cannot attend the trip, then the player with the second most points for the season will be invited, and so on. This enhancement rewards the players that have participated and performed the best throughout the year. If a flight winner cannot attend the trip, then the second place finisher and so on, within that flight, will be invited.
In case of a tie in points when determining flights, the tie breaking procedure that follows will go into effect:
- Head to Head match up in same tournaments played
- Average finish position in tournaments played
- Coin Flip
