SGA Cup Format

At each SGA TOUR event, players in each division will earn points based on their net finish and a list will be kept for the 2020 season. The top players at season end will earn invitations to compete in the SGA Tour Year End for the Grand Prize against the TOP 6. Listed below is an overview of how the points will be allocated and how many spots will be made available for the championship.

Flights: Once the entry for an SGA TOUR event has closed, SGA staff will divide players in each division into equal sized flights based on entrants’ handicap index as of the tournament’s entry deadline. The number of flights will be determined by the number of entrants in each division as follows: 5-30 players (1 flight), 31-59 players (2 flights), 60-79 players (3 flights), 80-108 players (4 flights), 109+ players (5 flights).

Points: Points will be awarded to players in each flight depending on their net finish only. The number of points given will be determined by the number of players in each flight. Several “Points Schedules” have been created and will be applied at each event depending on the number of players in each flight.  You are allowed a MAX of 20 rounds and the Special Summer Sizzler event for points to count towards the total. If you play over 20 rounds your HIGHEST Points event will be subtracted from the Total until 20 rounds are met.

YEAR END: Top 6 players in Point Totals will enter a match play tournament to determine a winner.

Breaking Ties:  In the event of a tie between individuals in the gross or net score, or between teams in team Best Ball, the winner will be determined by the following USGA procedure:

USGA RECOMMENDED CARD PLAYOFF PROCEDURE

If a play-off of any type is not feasible, matching score cards is recommended. The method of matching cards should be announced in advance and should also provide what will happen if this procedure does not produce a winner.An acceptable method of matching the cards is to determine the winner on the basis of the best score for the last nine holes. If the tying players have the same score for the last nine, determine the winner on the basis of the last six holes, last three holes and finally the 18th hole. If this method is used in a competition with a multiple tee start, it is recommended that the “last nine holes, last six holes, etc.” is considered to be holes 10-18, 13-18, etc.[…]

Point Schedules: Listed below are the Point Schedules, organized by flight size:
