The 2021Simpatico Springs WGT Tour is open to all Simpatico Springs members and up to 70 non-members. Below is the 2021 schedule. This Tour will use a handicap system based solely on your most recent 4-12 WGT 18-hole Single Play tournaments. Specific details about the handicap can be found at the bottom of this post.
In the 14 tournaments prior to the Simpatico Springs Championship, points will be awarded. The Max amount of points will not be greater than the size of the field (events with three players will have 3 points for the winner, and count down from there). In tournaments with 5 or more players, the points will be as follows. New members to the club will be awarded 1 point for each event they missed prior to joining the club.
1 point for playing
2 points for Top 10
3 points for 3rd place
4 points for 2nd place
5 points for 1st place
The Championship will give the Season long points leaders the following advantage. They will begin the Championship tournament as follows.
1st place = -10
2nd place = -8
3rd place = -6
4th place = -4
5th place = -2
All other participants will start at 0 if they have played in at least 6 Tour events. For players who have played in less than 6 Tour events, 1 stroke will be added to to their score for each tournament less than 6 that they have played in. A minimum of 3 tournaments will be required to play in the Simpatico Springs Tour Championship.
Each tournament will have a trophy for the Top 3 players. Additionally, the Tour Championship will pay out as follows. (credits must be used on something I can gift to you)
1st Place = 5000 credits
2nd Place = 3000 credits
3rd Place = 2000 credits

Handicaps will be based on the score of "70" and will include your 4-12 most recent scores in weekly 18-Hole Single Play. These handicaps will be used for all Simpatico Springs WGT Tour tournaments. All of these tournaments will be qualifying scores for your handicap, unless specified different.
Formula for handicaps is (70 - AVG Score = Handicap)
New players can start playing on tour right away. However, their handicap will be based on the first four scores they post. So once the handicap is applied those first four scores will all be 70 net. I will check for qualifying scores in the "score history" of new members on Tour.
