Point System

At the My Skins Game Tour we pride ourselves in giving our members numerous ways to earn the crucial points needed on the Player of the Year Leaderboard in order to earn a shot at the Tour Championship. It is important you take a few moments to go over our point system as it is the key at earning a spot at the top!

“Player of the Year” is awarded to the player who finishes on top of the Player of the Year standings after the end of season. We use our unique and patent-pending point system to determine the Top 100 golfers that will earn a spot to Tour Championship. The member to finish with the most points in the standings at the conclusion of the Tour will earn a 5 year exemption at My Skins Game tour, as well as earn an additional bonus of $8,000!

Number 1 or not, we know you have your eye on one of the 100 spots with a crack at competing for $100,000 in the Tour Championship. So we created this innovative point system with three ways to earn points, to help you do just that! Here is how you earn Player of the Year Points:

  1. Win a Skin:  Make and Eagle/Birdie or any shot that wins a hole outright and earn up to 1,000 Player of the Year points during regular season events.
  2. Low Gross Rankings:   Finish in the top 70 in the Low Gross (a.k.a. the lowest/best scores of the day) during any regular season event and you will earn a designated amount of Player of the Year points based on that days standing.
  3. Participation: Just show up and compete! The more regular season events you play in, the more points you get! Your 1st event is worth 100 points, 2nd events give you 200 points, your 3rd event earns you 300 and so on and so forth!
    • Participation points are awarded in the Tour Championships.

Below is an example of how “Player of the Year” points are tallied throughout the season for an individual golfer.

  • For example purposes, we are using “John Doe.”
  • Remember, participation points increase as your participation increases.
    • Ex: On the example below, for the 20th event (“Event #20″), John Doe earned 1000 participation points because it is John Doe’s 10th event played (participated) even though it’s the 20th event on our schedule.
  • Skins points (winning a “skin”) have a different value (worth) dependent upon the number of golfers on the course each tournament event.
    • We assume a full field (144 golfers) on the example below. A skin during a full field is worth 1,000 points.

Event #20 144 10th 1000 1 1000 11th 70 1070 2070
John Doe’s Yearly Total is 8479

Here is a Breakout of how all the Player of the Year points are distributed throughout a My Skins Game Tour season:

  • For those who earn a spot in the Tour Championship event, points are worth 2x that of a regular season event in the Low Gross and Skins Categories.
  • Participation points are carried over into the Tour Championship.
