FORMAT:  Individual Chicago points. This format compares a player’s score, in points, to their Quota points which is based off their course handicap. Players will be given a point value base on their gross scores for each hole as follows: Eagle – 8 pts, Birdie – 4 pts, Par – 2 pts, Bogey – 1 pts, Double Bogey or worse – 0 pts.  There is a set number of “quota points”. A player receiving 0 strokes has a quota of 39 points. A player’s “quota points” for the round is calculated by subtracting their playing handicap from 39 points. The top players are those who “outscore” their quota of points by the greatest number (i.e. if your quota is 30 and you score 35, versus a player whose quota is 33 and they score 36, you have beat them by 2 points). Contestants will play their own ball for 18 holes and will be assigned to separate flights based off their handicap index and will receive 95% of their course handicap. A player will compete based on his/her August 4th index or tournament index, whichever is lower. The top finishers in each flight will receive gift card money to Players are required to play from the designated tees, unless previously arranged and approved by the committee.
