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 City and Tour Championships. 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 their respective City Championships, as well as the top 100 that emerge from the City Championships and on to the 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 $20,000 in each City Championship and ultimately one of the deserving 100 members 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 1,500 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 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 City and 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 1520 points.

Event #20 144 10th 1000 1 1520 11th 70 1590 2590
John Doe’s Yearly Total is 9519

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 their respective City Championship event, points are worth 1.5x that of a regular season event in the Low Gross and Skins Categories.
  • 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 in the City and Tour Championships.
    • Ex: If the City Championship is your 13th event, you earn 1300 points. If it is your 19th, you earn 1900 points…
