Prizes & Order of Merit
100% of all the players’ entry fees will go towards the prize fund, venue hire, insurance and costings to run events.
Each event has a guaranteed 1st place prize of £15,000.
Below is the prize breakdown for each tournament, based on a full field of entries:
- Depending on each event’s final field size, The GolfCatcher Tour reserves the right to adjust the prize funds from 2nd place to 9th place accordingly to reflect the size of the field.
- In the event of a tie for first place, those players tied will play sudden death tie holes until a winner emerges outright.
- In the event of a tie in lower placings, prize money will be evenly distributed accordingly.
- Prize money will be paid 48hrs into players accounts upon completion of event.
- Under no circumstances can players arrange splitting of 1st place prize money.
- The GolfCatcher Tour is being run on the basis of a 0% profit model. If at the end of the season there are any excess funds, they will be donated to our partner charity Battleback Golf.
- The £100,000 bonus prize for winning any 3 of the 4 events has been insured through a broker on behalf of GolfCatcher.
- All players are asked where possible to attend the prize giving after each event.
Order Of Merit
Points will be allocated after each event as listed below:
To qualify for the order of merit a player must have played in at least 2 of the 4 events.
In the event of a tie in the order of merit final places, the result will be decided by countback. The countback will be calculated based on the following, in the following order:
- Lowest score produced from each player in any of the events they have participated in.
- Total birdies on their lowest card.
- If the above criteria does not break the tie, the second lowest score card will be used through the same format.
If all scores and birdie count still cannot break the tie, those players involved will be asked to attend a venue at a date that suits all parties to play a 18 hole strokeplay shoot-out for final placings. Sudden death tie holes if required after the 18 holes will be played.
