Player of the Year Point System

The South Jersey Golf Association is sponsoring a Player of the Year award in four divisions; Men, Women, Senior Men and Senior Women. In each of these divisions both gross and net awards, referred to as categories, will be given. The awards will be won by those individuals who accumulate the most points in SJGA tournaments. However, any individual may win only one award each year. The awards will be presented at the end of the season Fall Meeting.


All participants who successfully complete any tournament will receive points based upon their finish position in that tournament. The OVERALL winner of the Men’s, Women’s, and Senior Amateurs will receive 150 bonus points. The only tournaments excluded from the Player of the Year points calculations are member/guest tournaments and the end of the year Fall Meeting Tournament. Also, points earned by seniors in the Senior Amateurs may only be applied toward the awards in the seniors’ categories. Once finishing positions are determined and some may be via playoff or match of cards, as per Page 8, section 10-F of the tournament handbook, the points will be awarded. In the event there is a tie for the final position receiving a gift certificate and for all ties below that finishing position, all players will receive the points assigned to the value of that finishing position. 


Points will accumulate throughout the season and the winners of the Player of the Year award will be those who have achieved the highest total number of points in any category. However; in order to qualify for the award, participants must play in at least one individual stroke play event. In the event a person has the highest number of points in more than one category he/she will receive the award for the category in which he/she has achieved the greatest number of points. The winner of the remaining categories will then be selected based upon who has achieved the next greatest number of points in that category.


Example 1
Player A finishes with 2250 points in the Women’s Net category and 2650 points in the Women’s Senior Net category; Player B finishes with 2175 points in the Women’s Net category; Player C finishes with 2100 in the Women’s Net category and 2400 points in the Women’s Senior Net category.
Player A is the Women’s Senior Net Player of The Year since she can only win one award and her greatest number of points was achieved in Senior Net.
Player B is the Women’s Net Player of the Year since her 2175 points are the next greatest number of points in the Women's Net category.
In the event there is a tie in any category it will be decided by totaling the number of first place points a finalist has earned in that category (Gross or Net in their Division) in all events he or she has entered. This includes all individual, team and mixed events. If there is still a tie, this process will continue through 2nd place finishes, 3rd place finishes, etc. until a winner is declared.


Example 2
Player A, a senior player, finishes with 2250 points in the Men’s Gross category and 2300 points in the Men’s Senior Gross category; Player B also finishes with 2250 points in the Men’s Gross category; Player C, a senior player, finishes with 2100 in the Men’s Gross category and 2400 points in the Men’s Senior Gross category.
Among his points achieved, Player A finished 1st gross in the Men's Better Ball (with partner-each receives 500 points), 1st gross in the Mixed 2 of 4 (with partners-each receives 250 points) and 4th in the Stableford (individual-200 points).
Among his points achieved Player B finished 6th gross in the Men's Better Ball (with partner-each receives 190 points), 1st gross in the Mixed Scramble (with partner-each receives 500 points) and 1st gross in the Stableford (individual-500 points).

Player C is the Player of The Year in the Men’s Senior Gross category.

Player B is the the Player of The Year in the Men’s Gross category since his two 1st place finishes total 1000 points while Player A's two 1st place finishes total 750 points.

The chart below shows how points will be distributed for Player of the Year tournaments. If any tournament has more players than finishing positions shown on the chart, the pattern for point distribution will be continued to accommodate the additional players.
