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!!!!
A Personal Opinion It looks like the PGA Tour has (once again) gotten it wrong with its Top 30 Scenario set-up for the 2017-18 Fed Ex Playoffs. Submitted for your consideration and comment, an alternative Top-30 scenario that -- 1. Does not reset any player's points prior to the start of play. 2. Presents a different offering scheme of Tour Championship points, based on the event's 32-year-old basic money distribution formula. In fact, if you multiply each of the 30 places by 180 you'll get the individual place prize money amounts for the 2018 tournament. 3. In addition to the above, the alternative scenario doesn't tinker with the Tour Championship's scoring format or anything else. The field just plays the event as they would any other. May the best man win. One additional thought -- consider what the scenarios might be like (especially for Bryson DeChambeau) if the three playoff events offered only 1.0x value points instead of 4.0x.
