The Charlie Chaplin Cup
Last Updated: 07/14/19
THE CHARLIE CHAPLIN CUP is a season-long player of the year race designed to find the best player of 2019. Throughout the year, you will receive points based on both your NET and GROSS finish in your flight. This race culminates in a FedEx Cup style PLAYOFF SYSTEM played in the fall.

** The point system will also be used to determine the 24 players receiving invites to the 2019 President's Cup Matches in October. **

The top 50 will qualify for the first round of the playoffs on Saturday, September 21st (within the Fall Season Kickoff Tourney). There will then be a cut to 32 players for the semi-finals which takes place Saturday, October 26th (within the Halloween Tourney). The last cut will decide The Final 16 who reach the finals on Saturday, November 9th (within the Turkey Shoot Tourney).

Similar to the Tour Championship in the Fedex Cup, before the finals, our top 16 players will have their points reset to zero and reseeded.

Who is going to take down the cup??


*Your combined GROSS and NET finish in each tourney will make up the year-long standings of the Charlie Chaplin Cup.

PLAYOFFS BEGIN: 9/21/19 -- TOP 50 (combined GROSS/NET)
SEMI-FINALS: 10/26/19 -- TOP 32 (combined GROSS/NET)
FINALS 11/9/19 -- TOP 16 (one flight, NET only)

*All individual ties split points. (Ex: Bob shoots the low round at 73. Dan, Steve and Joe all shoot 74 and Frank shoots 75. Bob would take 1st place points. Dan, Steve and Joe ALL take 2nd place points. And Frank takes 5th place points, etc)

*For team events, players split the reward.
 (Ex: Felipe and Raul win the Fourball Title, which awards 1st place with 500 points. They each receive 250 points.)

*Half-Field Events are run on Wednesday and Thursday. Full-Field Events are run on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. On occasion, tournaments may be upgraded or downgraded due to turnout.

*Anyone who scores worse than 16th place in a half-field event and 22nd place in a full-field event (or a major) will take home 16th and 22nd place points, respectively. 

*Points for the Club Championship are as follows. The cumulative 36 hole qualifier will be scored as a full field event (250 total points possible). If you qualify for the match play (TOP 8) then you receive 100 points. You also receive 100 points for each victory in matchplay. So a full sweep wiill earn you a grand total of 650 points. The biggest point haul of the year. Let us know if you need help lifting that trophy!

*The Official Majors are the Stroke Play Championship (4/5-4/6), The Four Ball Tourney (March-June), The Club Championship (9/6, 9/7, 9/8), the first round of the Playoffs (9/21) and the Semi-Finals (10/26).

*After the semi-finals, points reset to zero and the top 16 get reseeded with the below
point structure.

*For the Top 16 in the finals- you will all play to your 2019 year low handicap adjusted to Wilson. The finals is NET ONLY. There will be no point pay out for gross. Everyone in the top 16 plays from the SAME TEES (Blues) regardless of the Turkey Shoot setup.

*Tiebreakers in the finals will be based on GP's current CARDOFF procedure. Back Nine, Back Six, Back Three, etc.

*Only the top 4 seeds “The Final Four-some” can guarantee themselves an overall 
championship with a win in the finals. But if not, anyone in the final 16 can win.
