Season Champ - We Need a Scoring System to determine GOTY!!!

4 posts / 657 viewsLast Reply

Recommended Posts

My golf foursome has been playing together for years (20+).  We are in desperate need of a season scoring system, so that we can look back on the season and determine who holds the Golfer of the Year bragging rights.  We don't handicap our rounds, as we are all about the same level.  We are trying to come up with a system that awards points to individual golfers, so that at the end of the season, we can tally the points and crown the GOTY.  We would like the system to take the following into account;

1. Rank for the day (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th)

2. Course difficulty (a 79 at an easy course, should not be awarded the same as an 84 at a much more difficult course)

3. Actual score (Is winning by 1 with a score of 99 the same as beating the same guy by 12 with an 88?)

4. Season scoring average

5. Absent golfers (today we only assess points when EVERYONE is there.  We had one guy not show up for 3 weeks... should the rest of us not be able to obtain points because of it?)

6. We would also like points given for our "achievements"... e.g. three birdies in a round, the most pars, etc.

7. Any other aspect that would help us improve, and just not award points for winning... e.g. I won, but shot a 102.

Just wondering if any weekend group has come up with a scoring system that might accomplish these aspects!  Please share.  I am tired of spending the winter with each guy trying to make a case for GOTY, only cherry picking the data that helps them do it.

Looking forward to ANY input.   Thanks!!!!

Compute a scoring average for all the players across the year and rank yourselves by scoring average, assigning a set number of points to 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th. 

Assign points for your rank for the day, with 1st place bonus points based on margin of victory if you wish.

If a golf is absent multiply the points earned that day by some reduced amount if you want to still have others earn points while one is gone.

Assign point values for different achievements and add them up.

Tally your points and see who came out on top. Adjust the point earnings as necessary until you make sure you win! 😁

That seems like too much work. A 79 may be a better score at some courses but since you’re playing against each other, you’re all playing the same courses at the same times.

I’d award four points for first, three for second, and so on. If someone’s absent, they can’t win any points or they get last-place points.

Award 20 points for the season-long scoring winner, 15 for second, 10, and 5.

Award a point or a half a point for an exceptional thing.

KISS.

Our bi-monthly foursome just adds up the scores (hdcp corrected) for the year. Then divide that number by rounds played. The lowest, average score for the year wins bragging rights.

Actually there are 6 of us who play together on a regular basis. At the end of our year we have a get together some where, and the lowest average for the year gets a free ride.
