Points Breakdown:
This event will be worth double points!!

Points will be earned at each event of the series and will be tracked on Disc Golf Scene. Top earners for the Spring #1-3 and Summer #1-3 events will earn trophies for each respective half. Top earners of the whole series including the finale will earn trophies and payouts. Professional divisions will earn cash and amateur players will earn payouts through Smooth Disc Golf.

Spring Series: Only the three Spring events count towards Spring total
Summer Series: Only the three Summer events count towards Summer total

Overall: Up to 5 events out of 7 will be counted for the overall total. Meaning, your lowest two events will be dropped including any event you did not attend. The Finale will be worth double the points.

3 points for playing
1 additional point per player beat (including ties. Ties for 1st place will give 1st place points to the winner and 2nd place points to all others) )

20 player division example:
1st place 22 points
2nd place 21 points
3rd place 20 points

20th place 3 points.

20 player division example with ties
1st place 22 points
2nd and 3rd place tie 21 points
4th place 19 points

20th place 3 points.

DNF’s will result in only 3 points.


Player’s who are forced out of a division due to a rating change can bring 50% of the points UP to their new divisions as long as they did not play that event in both divisions.If a player chooses to play both days, they will keep the points of the higher division regardless of their placement in the lower division. No points can be dropped to a lower division.

Double Dipper Example:
Player A earns 5 points in MA3 on Saturday and 20 points in MA4 on Sunday. Their MA3 point total will stay at 5 regardless if they are later moved up due to rating.

Divisions with 3 or more players will be guaranteed for the event .If no one signs up for a division, those spots may be reallocated to other divisions.
