Player of the Year Points Calculation: Player of the Year point totals for 2016 will continued to be a best of approach. Juniors total will be the best finishes of 15 events. There are over 45 point events for juniors to choose on the 2016 schedule. If a sudden death playoff is conducted for a 1st place tie, the winner of the playoff will receive 1st place points. For all other ties, points will be split among competitors, even if there is a scorecard playoff. Scorecard playoffs are only used to determine who will receive the trophy for the event. Points will automatically be added to each player’s profile after the conclusion of the event.
