Top 16 and ties in POY standings through the Senior Club Championship
There will be two parts to this year's Derby Day Shootout.
The 16 qualifiers will compete in a 9-hole playoff. Each player will receive 80% of his course handicap (divided by two for nine holes and rounded to the nearest 1/2 stroke). Handicaps will be adjusted based on the predominant tees used to establish the handicaps of the 16 players.
The player with the lowest net score from the 9-hole playoff will receive 16 POY points, 2nd place will receive 15 points, 3rd place will receive 14, etc., down to 1 point for the last place finisher.
POY points will be tallied after the 9-hole playoff, and the top four in POY standings will participate in a 3-hole shootout. The 4 remaining players start and the player with the highest net score is eliminated after each shootout hole. In case of a tie on a hole, players will chip off to determine who is eliminated on that hole. If the two remaining players on the last hole tie, they will replay the final hole until a winner is determined.
Each hole played during the Shootout will be worth 3 POY points, with the Shootout winner receiving 12 POY points, 2nd place receiving 9, 3rd place 6 and 4th place 3 points. Those points will be added to the player’s previous total to decide the Final POY standings and our Player of the Year.
