Championship Series Point System
The SoHG Championship Series (CS) point system was developed to help determine an overall winner, or winners, at season’s end. It is a performance-based system.
At the conclusion of the CS, following the Mid Pines event in November, awards will be given to those competitors who have accumulated the most points in three distinct divisions – the Championship, Senior (60-69), and Super Senior(70 and over). Points are automatically tallied for Open and Reserve categories within each division.
- Points will be awarded on a descending scale from 1st place to 30th place; from 400 points to 20 points.
- Points may NOT be commingled. That is, a player must declare eligibility in only one division – the Championship, Senior, or the Super Senior. Points earned in one will not be transferable to any other division. Thus, a player is able to compete, and win, in only one of the three divisions. After a player declares his division, he may not change divisions during that year.
- If a tie exists after the final event of the CS (Mid Pines), the first tournament that each player competed in will be used for a card playoff, beginning on the 1st hole. The U.S. Hickory Open will be considered the first eligible tournament for card playoff purposes.
- As the Southern Hickory Four-Ball is unique in that it is a team event, each partner in a winning category will receive the full point value. Each partner must declare the division he or she will be playing in.
In the box at right:
- Event Finish is where a competitor places for any given event, 1-30.
- Point Award is the point total awarded to that finish.
- Percentage of 400 is the percentage of 400 possible total points awarded to that finish placement.
So, if you finish first in a CS event, you’ll win 100 percent of 400 possible points. If you finish in 30th place, you’ll receive 20 points, or 5 percent of 400 possible points.
(Note: Open is often called the Championship or Gross division. Reserve is often called the Handicap or Net division.)
