Players ranked 51+ in the world will receive double points

Players ranked 51+ in the world will receive double points for all above point allocations so that you have an incentive to also pick players outside the top 50 in the world and think more carefully about your selections.

If there are ties for positions 2-9, we will add up the points for all those positions and allocate them evenly to each player. Any players outside the top 50 in the world will then be allocated double those points. For example, if three golfers finish tied for second place, the calculation will be as follows (15+13+10)/3 = 12.67 points. If one of these three players is outside the top 50 in the world, this result will be doubled, therefore this player will receive 12.67*2 = 25.33 points.

Negative points will be allocated as follows:

If a player you selected misses the cut, negative points will be allocated as follows:
If the player is ranked inside the top 10 in World Golf Rankings = Negative 6 points
If the player is ranked 11-50 (inclusive) in the World Golf Rankings = Negative 3 points
If ranked 51 or worse in the World Golf Rankings = Negative 1 point

Player withdrawing or being disqualified:
If you have selected a player who withdraws before the tournament begins, you will receive 0 points for his selection.

If a player you have selected is disqualified or withdraws after the start of the tournament but before the start of round 3, you will receive the same negative points as he would have received had he missed the cut.

If a player you have selected makes the cut and withdraws or is disqualified he will receive 0 points.
