How tie scores are resolved:
If there are tie scores at the end of regulation play, they will be resolved in the following manner for all 18 hole divisions. Players tied for first will play off on the course in "sudden victory" format. They will begin playing on a designated hole and play hole-by-hole until a winner is determined. After each hole of the playoff, any players who tied for the low score on the hole continue to the next hole. Other players are eliminated from the playoff. The winner of the playoff will be awarded 16 points. In the event that a playoff on the course is not possible, a match of scorecards will be used to determine the winner.
All tie scores, other than first place, are resolved by a match of scorecards following the procedure in USGA Rules of Golf Appendix I, Part B, How to Decide Ties. This procedure is used for placement awards at the event and to determine a top 3 finish for qualification for the tour championship. Points for all places except for first are split among the players tied for the placement. For instance if 2 players tie for second place, we add 2nd and 3rd place points and each player receives half of the total.
All Futures division ties, including first place, are resolved using a match of scorecards.
Points are awarded based on the table below.
