There have been many suggestions as for what to do to qualify for the "Majors", and here goes another one, so that, when the moment comes, we have various options to choose from.
I suggested at the begginning of the January Tournament creating a league table based on Match Play Results: one point for each game you win plus one point for winning the whole tourney. I suggested it simply as something to add to the fun, so we could compare our usual stroke play results with the match play results. Now, however, I think we could this as an instrument to qualify people into the Majors.
There would be five different league tables based on the results of the five different tiers. If we wanted, for example, a 32 man Major, then the top six from each league table would qualify plus the two seventh place players who have most points. When we play a Major, all the players return to zero points and we start again.
The main two problems I can see with this system, and I can't really find a solution to them (maybe somebody will) is that players average will move around. This means they will also change tiers from one month to the next, and they will be on two different league tables: therefore, their points will be spread around these two leagues and they will have less chances of qualifying.
The second problem is that the number of participants from one month to the next might also change, and the number of tiers would have to change too.
Can anyone think of any solutions to this, or is my six paragraph comment completely useless? :)
