Total points will determine the order of finish in each division.
Place of finish within the division will determine how many points a player will receive each week. 1st place receives 10 pts, 2nd place receives 9 points, and so on. If there is a tie, then the average of the two places will be used. Example: A tie for 1st place. The average of 10 and 9 points = 9.5 points.
Ace Pot – (optional) $1 each week you play. Ace Pot rolls over, caps at $100 If more than one player hits an Ace during a round then they split the $100.
Division by PDGA rating for a player’s first league only. A players average score after the first league will determine the lowest division they can play in. No more than 6 previous leagues or 1 year will be used to determine a players average score.
If player has no PDGA rating, they choose their division for 1 league and establish a rating by comparing scores to the World Class Par for Jack Brooks which is 48.54 = 48 (established at the only PDGA sanctioned tournament that used 18 basket setup, Disc Golf Store 2000 event). A 1000 rated player would be expected to throw a 48. Deduct 10 points from 1000 for each throw over 48. Ex: If you throw a 58, that is a 900 rated round. PDGA rating is always used when available for a players first league only. You may change your division until the start of the third week.
No less than 3 and no more than 5 per scorecard.
Payout will be done at the first week of the new league.
Results will be posted at the course board and on the Birdshot website www.houstonbirdshot.com
